Regular Blood Tests
Blood tests can be used to check everything from your kidney function and liver function to your blood glucose levels, blood group and blood cholesterol level. These tests can help to identify if you have a health problem or illness so you can then take steps to help you get better.
If you have been meaning to have blood tests but keep putting it off, then don’t delay any longer.
Your reasons for requiring a blood test can include wanting to check for a hereditary condition or to find out if everything is functioning OK following a period of illness.
For example, you may have been encountering fainting spells recently and even though you may feel better, you still need to have blood tests to rule out things such as anemia and make sure your don’t have a more serious condition that can also cause this symptom.
A blood test can also screen for a genetic disorder such as cystic fibrosis or Thalassemia. If you have a condition such as these, it is important to get it confirmed so you can start receiving treatment. Even if you do not have a disorder, you may be carrying the gene that can cause it and if you are pregnant or trying for a baby, it is important to find out for sure by having a blood test.
Blood tests can sound scary, especially if you dislike blood or needles, but there is no need to be afraid. The tiny discomfort you will feel is worth if you can find out more information about your general health or a specific condition.
