What is lab testing?

Lab testing is a collection of different health screening methods. The most common types of lab testing are blood and urine tests, but nasal and throat swabs are also often-used approaches.

What is the purpose of lab testing?

There are several reasons to have lab testing. It can help the Prestige Clinicians LLC team to:

  • Check for changes in your health
  • Diagnose illnesses like flu and COVID-19
  • Diagnose conditions like high cholesterol and diabetes
  • Identify emerging issues like high blood sugar or anemia
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your current treatment plan
  • Establish a record of your current health for future comparison

Many people need lab testing during their acute care visits to the office, but you could also need this type of testing as part of annual exams, palliative care, or home visits.

What are the different types of lab testing?

Some of the most common types of lab testing include:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP)
  • Lipid panel
  • Thyroid panel
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) panel
  • Urinalysis

The specific type of lab testing you need depends on your current health, suspected issues, and other factors. You may need to have a couple of different tests at one time, such as a urinalysis and a complete blood count.

How often will I need lab testing?

Testing frequency depends on many factors, including your age, current health, and disease risk factors. Many people need lab testing only once a year, as part of an annual physical exam or wellness check-up.

Of course, if you’re sick or suspect you have an illness, you may need lab testing to find the cause. The Prestige Clinicians LLC team recommends the ideal lab testing schedule for you according to your individual situation.

What should I do to prepare for lab testing?

The Prestige Clinicians LLC team tells you how to get ready for your lab testing. With some lab testing, you don’t need to do anything at all, but some blood tests require fasting for around eight hours prior to the test.

If you need to schedule lab testing, Prestige Clinicians LLC can make both the scheduling and the testing easy. Call the office or click on the online appointment maker to book your lab testing visit now.
