Complete Blood Count (CBC)

Why do you need this test? A CBC test helps. Is a general test that helps you evaluate your overall health and detect a variety of diseases and conditions, like anemia and infection.

Disease prevention: It can spot early signs of blood disorders or infections, so you can take steps to prevent more serious health issues. Lukemia can also be found with a CBC test. For those who want more information, the CBC test is able to identify seven types of cells: blood, red blood cells, neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, and platelets. This can also show a low blood count, a high blood count,a high platelet level,and many more.

Frequency: Your doctor will probably recommend a CBC as part of a routine checkup. In other cases, if you’re experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, weight loss, fever, and a few other symptoms, the frequency depends on your health condition and results.

Procedure time and pain level: It takes a few minutes to collect a blood sample from a vein in your arm. You might feel a quick, small pinch, but nothing dramatic to make you faint. No worries; our certified nurses make sure you feel almost like you are in a spa.

Hematology And Electrolytes

Cardiovascular (Lipids, Triglycerides, Cholesterol, HDL, LDL)

Why do you need this test? The Cardiovascular test will be able to measure the amount of fat in your blood and determine your risk of cardiovascular disease. 1 in 12 people in Canada has some cardiovascular disease. This may be due to their obesity, high amount of salt intake or another reason. If we refer to Canada Health Statics, every single hour around 14 adults in Canada die from heart disease.

Disease prevention: Crucial test in preventing heart disease and stroke by identifying high levels early so you can make lifestyle changes or start treatments. Knowing the statistics you will really want to adjust your lifestyle. Also, men are twice as likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease than women.

Frequency: In an ideal world you should do it every 4-6 years for adults without risk factors. If you do have risk factors, then you should aim to do this test more frequently.

Procedure time and pain level: Minor discomfort level with a really fast blood sampling with a tiny needle. You almost will not notice it.

Stool tests (FIT, stool culture, ova and parasites, etc.)

Others have allergies to cats or dogs. The least lucky people have an allergy to dairy or even certain medications. Despite the allergens that trigger your body, it is always better to be alert to the dangers you consume or inhale.

Disease prevention: The allergen test helps in managing and avoiding allergen exposure, reducing the risk of severe reactions. Some allergies can be permanently cured with weekly injections.

Frequency: As needed, based on allergic symptoms and exposures. The test for allergy is usually recommended for people who experience some discomfort, trouble breathing through their nose, or sudden, inexplicable rushes over their body.

Procedure time and pain level: Varies; skin prick tests may cause slight discomfort and are quick. Other tests require a blood sample, which is a little more painful but more accurate.

Why do you need this test? When you get pregnant, it is important to monitor the health of the mother and fetus and check for gestational diabetes.

Disease prevention: Early detection can prevent serious complications in growth and development. This panel is the same as a regular blood test, just for kids. The purpose is the same. Just a general check-up.
