Blood Testing in Richmond
NO DOCTOR’S VISIT IS REQUIRED TO ORDER OUR TESTS, SAVING YOU TIME, MONEY AND HASSLE.
The body was designed with all of the essential organs, tissues, bone structure, blood flow and more to help us lead healthy, normal lives. As time passes, the origins of some bodily functions change. Whether it is the result of poor eating habits, not exercising or consuming harmful substances, these functions can change and begin to work against us. At Health Testing Centers located in Richmond, Virginia, our job is to provide quality blood testing services to our customers.
When you are equipped with blood test results, you can make informed decisions about the best care for your body. One of our comprehensive blood tests is called the basic blood chemistry panel. This panel consists of two primary components. The first component is the complete blood count with differential and platelets. This essential blood test evaluates your overall health. The results can identify whether you have a hematologic disorder. The complete series consists of 10 separate blood tests that examines several components of your blood makeup. These components include red and white blood cell count, differential counts, distribution with of red cells and a platelet count.
If there are changes to your red and white blood cell counts, a disease or infection could be present. Having this information will enable you to seek medical advice from your primary doctor when there is reason for concerns. The second part of the chemistry panel is the complete metabolic panel. With this series of blood tests, important information about the condition of your liver, kidneys, total cholesterol, proteins and blood glucose levels are revealed.
Even if this complete chemistry testing does not reveal any health problems, you can still accomplish many benefits. The blood test results can be used as a baseline in case you experience problems in the future. Your physician will have more information to consider when making a diagnosis.
BLOOD TESTS INCLUDE A DOCTOR’S ORDER AND HEALTH CONSULTATION WITH ONE OF OUR EXPERIENCED NURSES.
The Benefits of Blood Testing
Regular blood screening is an important part of preventing degenerative problems such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and liver or kidney problems. It can also spot problems related to nutrition, such as electrolyte, vitamin and mineral levels, as well as problems related to hormonal imbalances. Patients may not be able to rely on your doctor for all the testing they require, however.
Doctors routinely order basic tests, such as blood cholesterol or fasting blood sugar, but may not bother with many other tests, such as thyroid hormone or basic nutrition screening. This means that many people with subtle internal imbalances can end up suffering from them for years. The symptoms of these imbalances are highly variable and can easily be mistaken for a cold, a mental problem or just feeling tired, so many patients never realize that they have a problem.
One option for patients is to request an annual blood screening covering all the major tests. This is especially helpful for older patients, since changes in the body can have an enormous effect on overall health and quality of life. Many doctors who won’t suggest a screening themselves are willing to perform one when asked. A good insurance policy that offers preventive coverage should pay at least part of the cost of the screening.
Another option is to have the screenings performed without a doctor’s request. In this case, the patient may need to cover the cost of the tests out of pocket, since insurance companies are less likely to provide this kind of screening. The screening itself may cost less, however, and the patient retains complete control over which tests are performed.
Patients who live in large cities, such as Richmond, VA, often have access to independent testing center. Those who live in smaller communities may need to travel to the nearest lab, but many testing centers work with a wide range of labs to provide services all over the United States, making it simple to get necessary screenings without too much inconvenience.
