The Importance of Lab Testing

Body fluids and tissues contain comprehensive information on a person’s overall health, but the key information garnered from these specimens is not always visible to the naked eye.

Lab testing provides valuable information on:

  • Bacterial infections
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Cancer diagnosis and progress
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Nutrients in blood
  • White blood cell count
  • HIV/AIDS diagnosis
  • Sexually transmitted disease screening

The earlier a problem is found, the better chance you and your doctor have of treating it. Ask your doctor about medical lab testing during your next physical.
