Why do I need a blood tests for?

A full blood count (FBC) or complete blood count (CBC) is a common blood test to check a person's general health or to screen for conditions such as anaemia, infection, and even cancer of the blood. In a laboratory the number of red cells, white cells and platelets in the blood are assessed. Blood cholesterol levels can also be measured with a simple blood test. You may be asked not to eat for 12 hours before the test (which usually includes when you're asleep) to ensure that all food is completely digested and won't affect the result, although this isn't always necessary. Another common blood test is the basic metabolic panel to check your heart, kidney, and liver function by looking at your blood glucose, calcium, and electrolyte levels. To check for heart disease risk, you may have a lipoprotein panel that measures levels of fats in your blood, like good cholesterol (HDL), bad cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides.

Profile blood tests

Some conditions require a number of blood tests to diagnose correctly, which is why we group certain blood tests together in 'profiles'. These may be more suitable if multiple tests are required and will also save you money on the cost of having all of the tests done separately.
