      PATIENT'S FAQ'S

      Why lab services?

      Lab test results may offer the first clues to a major disease or provide information that confirms you are healthy. To run a lab test, a patient sample is needed. The sample may be blood, urine, or cells or tissue; it's different for each test. Once your sample is taken, trained technologists and specialists in our lab analyze it. Then, we send the test result to your doctor to help him or her make informed treatment decisions.

      Why is testing Important?

      Your test results can help establish your "baseline" for future monitoring and give you general information to help you better manage your health. Here are a few of the many reasons lab testing is recommended: Staying healthy: Tests often help expose risk factors - important information that can help you and your doctor target lifestyle changes to keep you well. Early detection: Changes in your health may only become noticeable over time. Testing can help you identify these potential health conditions early. In general, the earlier a developing condition is detected, the greater the likelihood that your doctor can treat it. Family history: If you have certain concerns due to your family history, lab tests can help monitor those conditions. Peace of mind: If you've made lifestyle changes to improve your health, testing can show how successful your efforts have been.

      How can i prepare before going for my first test ?

      When preparing for a lab test, be sure to follow your doctor's instructions. In addition to following that guidance, it is important to: Continue to take any medication as prescribed Wear sleeves that roll up easily if you are taking a blood test Be prepared to provide a urine sample Fast (if you are having a blood test), which means that you should not consume anything but water, plain tea without milk or sugar, or black coffee Drink plenty of water
