Lab services are diagnostic tests that use a small sample of your blood, urine, or other tissues to check for signs of disease. Lab testing is an important part in treatment planning, allowing your provider to obtain key information and make a plan to care for your health.
Cary Medical Clinic has a long-standing commitment to medical excellence, offering modern technology and techniques to ensure you receive an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment for your condition.
Your provider at Cary Medical Clinic may perform a wide range of lab tests. Some of the most common include:
A metabolic panel is a blood test that measures various components in your blood, such as glucose (blood sugar) or electrolytes.
Your provider may request a metabolic panel to assess organ health and function or help diagnose a chronic health condition such as diabetes or kidney disease.
A lipid evaluation checks your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, helping your provider to assess cardiovascular health and risk of heart disease.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are common conditions. With a busy lifestyle and managing daily responsibilities, it can be a challenge to get all the nutrients you need to thrive.
After evaluating your nutrient levels, your provider can make nutritional recommendations that benefit your health and well-being.
A CBC measures the type and number of cells in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Your provider uses the information from your CBC to help diagnose medical conditions such as anemia and other types of blood disorders.
Cary Medical Clinic uses lab services as a primary diagnostic tool. Your provider can perform lab testing to determine the root cause of your symptoms.
If you have a chronic health condition, like high cholesterol, routine testing can keep track of your health and determine whether your current treatment plan is effective. Lab testing is also important if you have more than one chronic disease.
Lab results assist with adjustments in your medication therapy or other treatments. All results are always included in your medical record, a document that is continually updated to reflect the changes in your health over time.
