Common Lab Tests
Common lab tests we offer include:
A culture is a test determines whether you have an infection. We take a blood, urine, skin or other tissue sample and examine it under a microscope for infection-causing bacteria. Common types include a throat, sputum (spit), stool or wound culture.
Complete blood count (CBC)
This set of tests analyzes your blood, including red and white blood cells and platelets. A CBC provides information such as:
- Whether you have normal levels of cells and platelets
- A possible diagnosis for symptoms that include weakness, fever or unexplained bruising
- How medical issues or treatments are affecting your blood
Comprehensive metabolic panel
This test uses a blood sample to evaluate your metabolic system, which carries out important processes throughout the body.
The test provides information about:
- Blood sugars, the primary energy source for your cells
- Calcium, potassium and sodium, minerals that support nerve and muscle functioning
- Chloride, which regulates fluid levels
- Creatine and other waste products produced by the kidneys
- Electrolytes and other fluids
- Enzyme levels, which can signal abnormal liver issues
COVID-19 testing and vaccine
This test confirms or rules out infection with the novel COVID-19 virus. Learn more about COVID-19 testing here.
We perform COVID-19 testing:
- Passing a long swab through a nostril and gently brushing it against the back of your throat; or
- Taking a saliva sample
A doctor’s order is required to have a COVID-19 test. Learn more about testing here.
Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)
This test shows whether your blood sugar levels are abnormally high, which is a sign of diabetes. An HbA1c may also demonstrate whether treatments and lifestyle changes are working to improve your health. Many people with diabetes regularly test their blood sugar levels at home using special devices.
You may need this test if you are at risk for a blood clotting disorder or showing signs of liver disease. Prothrombin is a protein produced by your kidneys. The test measures how quickly it helps your blood form a clot.
It can show:
- A quick prothrombin time, which means you form clots faster than normal
- A slow time, which means it takes your body longer than normal to clot
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
This blood test measures levels of TSH to determine how your thyroid is working. TSH stimulates the thyroid to produce hormones (chemical messengers) that regulate certain organ functions.
Results help confirm or rule out thyroid disorders, including:
- Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), which may cause anxiety, rapid heart rate, bulging eyes and more
- Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), which may cause weight gain, tiredness, sensitivity to cold and other symptoms
Urinalysis uses a sample of your urine to check many aspects of your health, including:
- Signs of serious medical issues, like diabetes or kidney disease, and whether they are worsening.
- If there is an infection, such as one affecting your urinary tract
- Whether you are pregnant or experiencing complications such as preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy)
