Common Laboratory Tests

We offer a variety of laboratory tests to help us diagnose and treat a wide range of health conditions. Some of the most common tests we perform include:

  • CBC (Complete Blood Count): This test measures the number of different types of cells in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It can help us diagnose a variety of conditions, such as anemia, infection, and cancer.
  • CRP (C-reactive Protein): This test measures the level of CRP in your blood. CRP is a protein that is produced by your liver in response to inflammation. A high level of CRP may indicate an infection or other inflammatory condition.
  • CPK (Creatinine Phosphokinase): This test measures the level of CPK in your blood. CPK is an enzyme that is found in your muscles. A high level of CPK may indicate muscle damage.
  • Kidney Function Tests (Creatinine and BUN): These tests measure the level of creatinine and BUN in your blood. Creatinine and BUN are waste products that are produced by your kidneys. A high level of creatinine or BUN may indicate kidney disease.
  • Liver Function Tests (AST and ALT): These tests measure the level of AST and ALT in your blood. AST and ALT are enzymes that are found in your liver. A high level of AST or ALT may indicate liver damage.
  • Joint Fluid Testing: This test is used to determine if you have an infection or inflammation of the joint.
