Common Health Conditions Detected Through Blood Tests


Amish Patel - June 23, 2023 - 0 comments

Your blood can tell you and your doctor a lot about your health. Whether you’ve got symptoms you’re worried about or want to screen for potential health conditions, affordable private blood tests can be easily arranged at Intrigue Health with a simple appointment.

Blood tests are instrumental in detecting common health conditions. Early detection of high cholesterol, diabetes, kidney problems, and many other conditions can make all the difference between prevention and treatment.

TYPES OF BLOOD TESTS USED TO DETECT COMMON HEALTH CONDITIONS

General Blood Test

A complete blood count (CBC) test analyses the cells that circulate in your blood. It’s the most common test ordered by physicians and can provide valuable information on your overall health and help detect problems like anemia, inflammation, and infection.

Even if you are in good health and aren’t at high risk for any particular health problem, a CBC test can help give you a good overview of your current health and wellness.

Cholesterol Check

High cholesterol can cause life-threatening diseases over time if it’s not treated. Since symptoms of high cholesterol don’t appear until things are very serious, it’s important to start getting regular cholesterol blood testing in your 40s, or earlier if you are at high risk due to lifestyle or family history.

Kidney Function Test

Your kidneys are essential organs that are in charge of helping your red blood cells remove waste and toxins from your body as well as balancing your body’s fluids. If your kidneys aren’t functioning as they should, you can develop kidney disease. Your GP may prescribe this test if you are showing beginning symptoms related to kidney disease.
