Many people take their health for granted. When they wake up every day, as long as they feel okay, they never consider having the vital systems in their body tested. However, getting comprehensive testing done as part of your routine health exam can give our healthcare team important information about the status of your overall health. The tests provide information about any possible vitamin deficiencies, food allergies, and hormone deficiencies.
Simple, Convenient Tests
Getting comprehensive testing done is relatively straightforward. The tests can reveal the impact that medications people are taking is having on their liver or kidney. The results will indicate if there are any problems the physicians need to address.
What the Tests May Reveal
The tests may reveal if there’s enough glucose to provide the energy the body needs as well as adequate calcium to keep the heart, nerves, and muscles functioning properly and help keep the bones strong. They may show if there are traces of bone disorders, liver disease or damage, or heart or kidney problems. The tests may also check for Type 2 diabetes in people with high blood pressure. Comprehensive testing can also show if markers for Hepatitis C are present in the blood and look at hormone levels.
Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies
Another important function that comprehensive testing plays is helping to identify early signs of vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Nutritional deficiencies tend to remain unnoticed until they are so far along that the body begins to breakdown. By periodically taking comprehensive tests, our medical team will be able to spot the early signs of the lack of certain vitamins and minerals and address the issue before it begins to negatively impact your health.
