General Tests

Blood tests can help doctors evaluate how well organs such as kidneys, the liver, thyroid glands and the heart, are working. They assist in the diagnosis of diseases and conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, anaemia, and coronary heart disease. They can also be used to find out whether you have risk factors for heart disease and other conditions.

We offer numerous general blood tests which allow you to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • check if you have an infection
  • check the function of primary organs
  • screen for certain genetic conditions

Routine blood work is essential for diagnosing many diseases and medical conditions, as well as for checking blood glucose and cholesterol levels.
