Why do I need lab tests?

It's that time of the year again, to go to your annual medical exam. Do you ever wonder why a scheduled visit with the provider means there is an order for new labs? Didn't the provider just order lab tests? Is he/she a vampire just out to take my blood?

Lab tests are vital in making medical treatment decisions. The results of the test determines how mild or severe the conditions appear. The diagnosis determines whether your health requires treatment or not. The ordered labs helps the provider make a diagnosis based on the results.

Screening can identify any possible health conditions or infections even if there are no symptoms. This is mainly for early detection and allows for precautionary measures to be taken to prevent diseases.

The results of the test guides the providers treatment plan and enables the provider to make necessary adjustments to an already existing treatment plan. The provider is also able to track progress of the treatment plan. The treatment plan includes medication, radiology, diet, exercise and laboratory tests.
