What is routine blood work?
Routine blood work will show your blood profile which is a count of your red and white blood cells numbers (this will show anemia), clotting, your platelet count, and hemoglobin levels. Routine blood work will also show your blood chemistry, electrolytes, glucose levels, and protein and lipid levels.
When you get routine blood work done, you will also see an overview of your system. Your blood work will also check your thyroid and detect your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormones) levels.
Others reasons for routine blood work include, but are not limited to:
- Hormonal evaluations
- Disease specific blood tests
- Follow-up for diseases or chronic illnesses
- A BNP (B-Type Natriuretic Peptide) can predict heart failure
- If you have diabetes, you may need routine blood work to show your hemoglobin A1C results.
- If you past the age of 40, consider a PSA (prostate specific antigen) screening.
