Various blood tests can be used to assess the general state of patient’s health, check for infections, detect diseases of certain organs such as kidneys, liver etc. They can also be used to screen genetic conditions.
Most blood tests only take a few minutes to complete and are carried out by a nurse or phlebotomist in our specially designed facilities at Northway Clinic. A treating doctor will prescribe required tests according to the patient’s symptoms and advise if any tests require special preparation.
Your doctor might request a urine test to help diagnose and treat a range of conditions including kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes and some infections.
Urine can be tested for particular proteins, sugars, hormones or other chemicals, certain bacteria and its acidity or alkalinity.
