Rapid Strep and Flu Testing
It's important to find out if your child's sore throat is actually strep throat. Strep is highly contagious and the earlier it is treated the better. Both to help reduce its spread and for the sake of the treatment itself.
Testing for influenza is also a very common first step if you are someone who is at high risk of complications and are suffering flu-like symptoms. It helps your doctor make the right treatment decisions as early as possible.
Testing the glucose levels in your blood is necessary to determine a possible medical condition if the test is too low or too high.
High glucose levels may be a sign of diabetes. Symptoms can include increased thirst and frequent urination, blurred vision, and fatigue.
Low glucose levels point to other complications that can potentially lead to brain damage if it isn't addressed in time.
Urine tests can provide many clues that help your doctor diagnose several conditions. This includes diabetes, problems with your kidneys, or possible urinary tract infections.
These are typically performed during checkups or when seeking a diagnosis.
Not all types of tests are about determining if something is wrong. Sometimes you'll want to know with certainty if you are pregnant so you can plan.
