What are Blood Tests?

Blood tests are laboratory analyses performed on a blood sample that is usually extracted from a vein in your arm using a needle, or via a fingerprick. These tests are crucial for diagnosing diseases, monitoring organ function, and evaluating overall health.

Why a Blood Test is Done

Blood tests are conducted to help diagnose various conditions, from anaemia and infection to diabetes and cancer. They are also used to monitor how well organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning and to assess the effectiveness of prescribed medication.

Types of Blood Tests

At Pulse Light Clinic, we offer a wide array of blood tests to cater to various health needs. Here are some of the types of blood tests available:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): Measures the levels of different blood cells and is essential for diagnosing conditions like anaemia, infection, and many other diseases.
  • Biochemical Profile: Evaluates organ function and checks electrolytes, enzymes, and compounds like glucose and cholesterol.
  • Blood Enzyme Tests: These tests can detect levels of specific enzymes in the blood, crucial for diagnosing conditions such as a heart attack.
  • Lipid Profile: Assesses the amount of fats in the blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides, important for understanding heart health.
  • Liver Function Tests: Determines the health of your liver by measuring levels of proteins, liver enzymes, and bilirubin.
  • Kidney Function Tests: Evaluates how well your kidneys are filtering waste from your blood.
  • Thyroid Function Tests: Assesses how effectively the thyroid gland is working, measuring hormones like TSH, T3, and T4.
  • Hormone Tests: These include tests for reproductive hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone, important for both fertility assessments and understanding hormonal balance.
  • Vitamin and Mineral Tests: Checks for deficiencies or excesses of key nutrients like iron, vitamin D, B12, and folate.
  • Inflammatory Markers: Such as C-reactive protein (CRP), which can indicate inflammation in the body.
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Screens for diseases like HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis.

Preparing for a Blood Test

Preparation depends on the type of blood test you’re having. Some tests may require fasting (not eating any food) for 8-12 hours, while others do not require any special preparation. It’s important to follow the instructions given to ensure accurate results.

What Happens at a Blood Test

When you arrive for your blood test, a healthcare professional will greet you and guide you through the procedure. A small blood sample is taken, usually from a vein in your arm. The process is quick, and any discomfort is minimal.

Getting Your Blood Test Results

Results can vary in how long they take to be processed. At Pulse Light Clinic, we strive to provide results promptly via a secure method. You will be informed on how and when to expect your results during your visit.
