Blood work provides essential insight into how your organs are functioning

Blood tests have multiple benefits, including:

  • Determining your risk status for disease and conditions
  • Checking treatment success
  • Early diagnosis of some conditions before symptoms or complications develop
  • Identifying treatment side effects
  • Monitoring chronic disease status and progression

Why and when you need blood work

Testing for COVID-19 has plummeted globally, making it tougher for scientists to track the course of the pandemic and spot worrisome viral mutants as they emerge and spread.

The NIH indicates the importance of COVID-19 testing if we want our community to get back to normal. Early COVID testing can help save many lives by detecting the virus and allowing patients to isolate themselves early on to avoid spreading the virus. COVID testing is also very quick. You can receive results from a rapid test in as little as 15 minutes.

According to a study by Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) researchers, each week a woman consumes alcohol during the first five to 10 weeks of pregnancy is associated with an incremental 8% increase in risk of miscarriage.
