Bloodwork Clinic Oakville

What is a Blood Test?

Blood testing is a vital part of maintaining your physical well-being and is used by doctors to determine the functioning of different organs in your body. Having your blood tested at regular intervals can help you understand the changes in your body and empower you to make informed health decisions.

What Can Be Detected in A Blood Test?

Below are a few of the most common conditions that can be detected in a blood test:

When hormonal imbalances are present, blood work and lab analysis can identify the underlying cause. 

Hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and autoimmune thyroid diseases are caused by unbalanced thyroid hormones, which are associated with fatigue, irritability, and anxiety. 

Thyroid function is usually tested with a blood test, which is considered to be the gold standard test for thyroid function. 

Testing your liver function is also a common blood test that assesses how well it is functioning. This can be detected through analysis at our blood work clinic in Oakville.
