What are common lab tests?
A lab test is quite simple, as all that’s needed is a simple blood or urine sample or a throat swab, depending on the type of test a patient needs. It’s possible to test for infections like chlamydia as well as kidney, cardiovascular, or liver issues, or even cancer. Some of the common lab tests include:
- CBC tests – Complete blood count tests for signs of infection or conditions like anemia or leukemia
- Cultures – A test for the flu or strep throat
- Chemistry – A test for signs of dehydration, liver function abnormalities, or electrolyte abnormalities (potassium, sodium, etc.)
- Urinalysis – Urine tests for pregnancy, infections, or drugs
Also, AFC Urgent Care can provide employer drug/alcohol testing too, so if you’re an employee and you require a test, we can provide it, or if you’re an employer, we can help you test your employees. Get in touch with us at AFC Urgent Care to learn more.
