The Importance Of Bloodwork
Bloodwork screenings are a key factor in obtaining the highest level of health and well-being. The sensitive medical data and results that are collected as a result of your bloodwork, are kept safe and in secure hands when performed at Midwest Express Clinic Urgent Care.
Your bloodwork screening will take place in two parts:
- The first visit for patient history and exam, looking for anything that might suggest additional tests outside the routine labs;
- The second visit goes over your results and discusses lifestyle changes, possible medications, and timing for any repeat or additional labs.
The bloodwork screening measures factors of your health such as:
- CBC (anemia/infections)
- CMP (kidneys/liver/Electrolytes/blood sugar)
- A1C (diabetes)
- TSH/Free T4 (thyroid)
- Vitamin D
- Lipids (cholesterol)
- And more!
These screenings are typically referred by your doctor or primary care physician and are recommended every year. After the screening is complete, our medical providers will send you home with recommendations and healthcare tips in order to obtain the highest level of health and well-being.
Subject to the results of your bloodwork, it may be revealed that your health is at risk for diseases such as Diabetes.
Don’t stop there, take advantage of your health with preventative screenings:
- Pap smear
- Colonoscopy (By referral)
- Mammogram (By referral)
- Prostate screening
What is the difference between Bloodwork and Biometric Screening?
Annual bloodwork includes gathering your medical history, current health status by analyzing your bloodwork for anemia, diabetes, etc. Biometric Screening focuses directly on measuring an individual’s risk factors for blood pressure, glucose levels and others as mentioned within the list above.
