LabCorp Q & A
Why is blood testing so important?
Your blood is your lifeforce, delivering nutrients and oxygen throughout your body. Alongside its delivery service, it also carts away whatever your body doesn’t need. In other words, there’s very little in your body that doesn’t somehow involve your blood, which is why findings in your blood are the basis for 70% of health care decisions.
Since your blood offers up vital clues as to the state of your health, blood testing is critical in helping the health care providers at Chesapeake Wellness Center diagnose, and treat, most problems that crop up.
What is LabCorp?
At Chesapeake Wellness Center, the team realizes the importance of blood testing, which is why they have LabCorp testing on-site. LabCorp is a global company that handles more than 2.5 million labs a week, and Chesapeake Wellness Center can tap into this massive network to bring you the answers you need.
What conditions can LabCorp check?
LabCorp’s laboratory services range from routine testing, such as basic blood counts and cholesterol tests, to highly complex methods that help your Chesapeake Wellness Center provider in diagnosing genetic conditions, cancers and other rare diseases.
To give you an idea of what LabCorp tests for, here’s a sample of the different areas where LabCorp testing plays a crucial role.
- Anatomic pathologies
- Infectious diseases
- Pain Management
LabCorp testing not only identifies certain problems, but it’s also invaluable for determining whether your treatments are working.
How does LabCorp testing work?
If you need a blood test, the on-site LabCorp professional simply draws the amount of blood necessary to perform the testing your practitioner ordered. Because the testing is in-house, there’s no need for you to get to an outside lab, simplifying your health care.
Depending upon what your practitioner orders, your results may take a few days, but as soon as the results come back, they determine the next steps based on what your testing reveals.
