When we see our patients once a year (or bi-annually,) we educate our clients on early detection blood screening. A small blood sample can tell us a lot of things about the health of our patients and any underlying conditions they may have (some we would not otherwise be able to detect.) Our blood screening tests look for infections, anemias, clotting abnormalities, liver and kidney function, diabetes (and electrolyte abnormalities depending on the test) to name just a few.
The earlier we can detect disease, the better the success we have in managing or potentially correcting the issue. Sometimes managing issues can be as simple as a diet change! It is our hope that by finding things early, we can help improve the quality of our patient’s lives and keep them with you, the people who can love them that much longer.
