Today is Topic Tuesday at Aortic Hope.
💉 Many of us in the community are required to have routine blood work to check a variety of things. Some need to have their kidney function tested, INR, potassium just to name a few.
👉 According to the article "Blood Work Results" in ADA com, "A blood test is typically composed of three main tests: a complete blood count, a metabolic blood count and a lipid panel. Each test for different things, which can be understood through a detailed analysis of the results."
❤️ This article explains the acronyms you find in blood test results as well as what results from each panel may tell your physician.
😊 Hopefully this helps you understand more about the thought process behind your blood test.
