Learn What Blood Testing Can Do For You
Introduction to Blood Testing
One of the most important ways to keep track of your overall physical health is through regular blood testing. Getting tested routinely will allow you to keep track of the changes in your body over time that may impact you and your overall health as well as encourage you to make more informed decisions about your overall health. Blood testing is the most common type of diagnostic test, and while the test itself is simple, the results provide a lot of information and doctors can detect a wide range of issues from a single test. Your doctor will usually recommend getting routine blood work done once a year, however, there are many reasons to get tested more frequently.
Some reasons to be tested more regularly include:
- When you are experiencing persistent abnormal symptoms such as weight fluctuation, abnormal fatigue or brain fog
- To optimize your overall health by giving you a better understanding of how your unhealthy habits might be affecting your body
- And to reduce your risk of disease or future health complications by catching early signs and indications of future risk for diseases or conditions
The process for blood testing is typically fairly simple and quick. After a doctor orders a blood test, our health care professionals will need to take various samples of blood, usually from a vein in your arm. Most tests should only take a few minutes and should not be exceedingly painful.

The Different Services That Fall Under Blood Testing
There are a number of common blood tests that adults may test for on a regular, yearly basis. Some common blood tests are as follows. A complete blood count (CBC) test checks for levels of 10 different components of every major cell in your body, which include white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. A CBC test measures red blood cell count, hemoglobin and hematocrit. Abnormalities in any of these areas may be indicative of several conditions such as nutritional deficiencies, iron deficiency, infection, bone marrow issues, heart conditions and cancer.
A basic metabolic panel (BMP) checks for levels of different compounds in the blood such as calcium, sodium, carbon dioxide, electrolytes, glucose, potassium, chloride and creatine.
Another common test is a complete metabolic panel (CMP) which includes all the same measurements of the BMP test along with additional proteins and substances related to liver function such as total protein, alkaline phosphatase, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, bilirubin and albumin. High levels of any of this can indicate certain diseases, conditions and varying complications.
Lipid panels are used to check cholesterol levels. There is high-density lipoprotein (HDL) otherwise known as ‘good’ cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) also known as ‘bad’ cholesterol. HDL removes harmful substances from your blood and helps the liver break them down into waste, and LDL can cause plaque to build up in your arteries, which increases the risk for heart disease.
Other tests include sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing, thyroid panels to check on your thyroid production, enzyme markers, coagulation panels, c-reactive protein tests, and DHEA-sulfate serum tests.
Blood testing in Sacramento is an important way to keep track of your overall health, prevent diseases, or to treat current conditions. CRC Labs encourages you to undergo regular blood testing to help you sustain and keep up with a balanced, healthy overall lifestyle.
