Blood Work at Home in Houston
What Is Blood Work?
According to the National Heart, Lung, Blood Institute:
Blood tests help doctors check for certain diseases and conditions. They also help check the function of your organs and show how well treatments are working.
Specifically, blood tests can help:
-Evaluate how well organs—such as the kidneys, liver, thyroid, and heart—are working
-Diagnose diseases and conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, anemia, and coronary heart disease
-Find out whether you have risk factors for heart disease
-Check whether medicines you’re taking are working
-Assess how well your blood is clotting
What Do Blood Tests Show?
Blood tests show whether the levels of different substances in your blood fall within a normal range.
For many blood substances, the normal range is the range of levels seen in 95 percent of healthy people in a certain group. For many tests, normal ranges vary depending on your age, gender, race, and other factors.
Your blood test results may fall outside the normal range for many reasons. Abnormal results might be a sign of a disorder or disease. Other factors—such as diet, menstrual cycle, physical activity level, alcohol intake, and medicines (both prescription and over the counter)—also can cause abnormal results.
What To Expect During Blood Tests
Blood usually is drawn from a vein in your arm or other part of your body using a needle. It also can be drawn using a finger prick.
The person who draws your blood might tie a band around the upper part of your arm or ask you to make a fist. Doing this can make the veins in your arm stick out more, which makes it easier to insert the needle.
The needle that goes into your vein is attached to a small test tube. The person who draws your blood removes the tube when it’s full, and the tube seals on its own. The needle is then removed from your vein. If you’re getting a few blood tests, more than one test tube may be attached to the needle before it’s withdrawn.
Some people get nervous about blood tests because they’re afraid of needles. Others may not want to see blood leaving their bodies.
If you’re nervous or scared, it can help to look away or talk to someone to distract yourself. You might feel a slight sting when the needle goes in or comes out.
Drawing blood usually takes less than 3 minutes.
