For Identifying & Treating Conditions
Sometimes when you're sick, the cause of the problem isn't obvious. Your provider may ask you to give a sample of blood or other fluid to be tested for infection, virus or other indicator of the problem.
When you're healthy, your doctor may recommend lab tests periodically to determine your cholesterol levels, iron or other key health measures. By knowing your numbers, you can decide whether you need to make lifestyle changes to improve those numbers and your overall health.
