Lab Tests Q&A

What are lab tests?

Lab tests are procedures that allow your doctor to investigate your blood, tissues, fluids, and other bodily substances to gain insight into your health. With an in-house laboratory, the team at Open Door Wellness Center can perform a wide range of tests onsite. 

In-house lab testing saves patients time and money on travel to outside facilities. You don’t have to drive across town to get the testing services you need. Many patients can also access their results sooner than they might through a third-party lab.

Are there different types of lab tests?

Open Door Wellness Center offers several different types of lab tests onsite, such as:

Complete blood count (CBC)

A CBC measures multiple substances in your blood to track and monitor your health. The most common type of blood test, a CBC measures red and white blood cells, hemoglobin, platelets, and hematocrit.

Cholesterol level tests

Cholesterol level tests measure a fat-like substance in your blood called cholesterol. If your cholesterol is too high, it can lead to atherosclerosis, which hardens your blood vessels.

Infectious disease tests

If your doctor at Open Door Wellness Center suspects you have an infectious disease, such as mononucleosis (mono), Lyme disease, or a sexually transmitted disease (STD), blood, urine, or stool samples can help the team investigate.

Hormone level tests

A hormone imbalance can lead to mood swings, hot flashes, depression, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Testing the hormone levels in your blood is the first step in diagnosing your condition.

Glucose urine test

A glucose urine test measures sugars in your urine. The most common reason for this test is to screen for diabetes.

The team at Open Door Wellness Center may order multiple tests to diagnose, track, or monitor a condition.

Why might I need lab tests?

Lab tests give the team vital information about your health. Your doctor may order lab work to:

  • Diagnose a chronic disease, like diabetes or high cholesterol
  • Monitor an existing condition to prevent its progression
  • Identify an infection
  • Evaluate your immune function
  • Diagnose a vitamin deficiency
  • Determine whether a certain medicine is working
