Ordering Lab Tests Online FAQ

Can I Order Lab Tests Without Going To A Doctor?

You can order your own laboratory testing from Health Testing Centers and walk-in to a local lab location to have your testing services performed. Monitor your blood chemistry and biomarkers by ordering lab work such as complete blood count (CBC) and basic metabolic panel (BMP). These common blood tests include a doctor's order and provide the blood chemistry associated with an annual checkup. Doctors are valuable health managers; however, they should not be the only ones involved in decision making, when it comes to your health and wellness.

How It Works To Take Charge Of Your Health

Direct-access lab tests are exactly the same tests conventionally-ordered by your physician from the same CLIA certified laboratories. When you order tests from Health Testing Centers you pay with a credit card and walk-in to a LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics patient service center. To find a patient service center near you please enter your zip code into our Lab Locator to find a local clinical laboratory open now.

Alternatively you can choose to have an at-home test kit sent to you. You pay private-pay prices when ordering a test online. There are no additional fees for lab services. Online checkout is simple and we do not bill your health insurance company. All test orders and lab results are reviewed by our physicians. In the event that any of your lab results are out-of-range, you will see clear flag next to the value. If your have questions regarding your lab results please call our phone number to speak with a testing specialist.

We make the process simple and convenient to order blood tests. You may be curious about your glucose levels or concerned about kidney disease. If you have a family history of heart disease, checking your cholesterol levels, can help manage your risk of heart attack. At Health Testing Centers we offer you the power to quantify and manage your personal risk factors by ordering your own blood test online at an affordable price.

10 Important Blood Tests For Monitoring Your Health?

Typically the test panels that you order are based upon your individual health concerns. Following are ten of the most important test panels commonly ordered, particularly when you are in need of a general checkup:

  1. Complete blood count - typically combined with a BMP this is the beginning of most health analysis.
  2. Basic metabolic panel - typically combined with a CBC this is the beginning of most health analysis.
  3. Comprehensive metabolic panel - adds liver function tests to the BMP.
  4. Urinalysis - a general urine test used to screen for signs of disease.
  5. Lipid Panel - measures cholesterol and triglyceride levels to evaluate cardiac risk.
  6. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone - or TSH test is the primary test to evaluate thyroid function.
  7. Hemoglobin A1C - evaluates sugar levels over a period of time used to identify and monitor diabetes.
  8. Sexually transmitted disease testing - a complete screening panel for STDs include blood tests and urine samples for a accurate assessment.
  9. Hormonal imbalance testing - imbalances in male or female sex hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, can have significant affects on your health.
  10. C-reactive protein test - or CRP measures inflammation in your body. Inflammation is an important leading indicator of a variety of conditions from infection to heart disease.

What Is In A Complete Blood Count?

A complete blood count or CBC is the most common test ordered by physicians. This test measures the type and number of blood cells, specifically providing the following:

  • Red blood cell count - or RBC count evaluates your red blood cells for hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (Hct), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), and red cell distribution width (RDW).
  • White blood cell count - or WBC count evaluates your white blood cells (lymphocytes, basophils, eosinophils, neutrophils and monocytes). The number of these cells, known a leukocytes, remain stable in your body. An infection, injury or allergy stimulates production of white blood cells.
  • Platelets - measures the size and number platelets in your blood. Also known as thrombocytes, these are fragments of blood cells that play a key role in normal blood clotting. If you have too few platelets you are at risk for excessive bleeding and bruising. Too many platelets can lead to excessive clotting. Platelet count is often used to screen for a bleeding or blood clotting disorder. It can also help diagnose stem cell disorders such as bone marrow disease.

A CBC is typically ordered to evaluate your general health. It screens for a number of disorders and can even evaluate your nutritional status.

What Is In A Basic Metabolic Panel?

A basic metabolic panel (BMP) is a combination of popular tests performed when your see a healthcare provider. It provides general information regarding how well your body is performing. The following tests are included in a BMP:

  • Glucose levels - glucose tests measure your blood sugar.
  • Calcium - an important mineral for your heart, nerves, kidneys, and teeth.
  • BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and creatinine - measures levels to assess kidney function.
  • CO2 (carbon dioxide or bicarbonate) - a waste product associated with kidney and lung function.
  • electrolytes and fluids - measures sodium, potassium, and chloride levels. A balance of fluid to salts helps your cardiovascular, muscular, and nervous systems function properly.

The BMP can be used to screen for a number of medical concerns:

  • Acid/base imbalance
  • Too high or too low blood sugar, insulin metabolism issues
  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Blood filtration issues
  • Lung problems
  • Kidney problems

What Is In A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel?

The comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), also known as a complete metabolic panel, combines a basic metabolic panel with the following additional tests to provide a better status of your organ systems and metabolic functions:

  • Total protein, globulin and albumin – important proteins for healthy metabolic function.
  • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) – liver function tests. A measure of albumin to globulin is also included in the CMP.
  • Bilirubin – a liver waste product used to evaluate liver, anemia or jaundice diseases.

How Often Should I Get Routine Blood Work?

A doctor often recommends that you get routine blood work at least once a year. However, this should be considered an absolute minimum. Common reasons to order test more often include:

  • You are experiencing symptoms - certain symptoms such as pain, persistent fatigue or unexplained weight changes.
  • You have specific risk factors that you want to reduce - if you have a family history or feel you are at higher risk for a disease, identifying signs earlier can dramatically increase your ability to effectively manage a concern.
  • You have a goal to optimize your health - we refer to this as knowing your numbers, such as your cholesterol or testosterone levels. The data that blood tests provide can be an important tool to make changes to optimize your lifestyle, diet and fitness.

Does A Blood Test Hurt?

Most routine diagnostic lab tests require a blood sample. It’s a brief, generally painless experience (a quick sting or less discomfort level) but it often causes anxiety, especially for those who are needle-phobic (trypanophobia) or don’t like the sight of blood, especially their own. The entire procedure generally takes less than five minutes. A skilled healthcare professional can perform a lab draw with hardly any discomfort at all, quickly and easily.

The procedure for drawing blood is called venipuncture. A health professional will ask you to raise your sleeve and wrap an elastic band (tourniquet) around the upper part of your arm to apply pressure, which causes veins to swell with blood. The skin surface is cleaned with antiseptic and a small needle inserted inside the elbow or on the back of the hand. The blood is then withdrawn and collected in a vial or a syringe. When the needle is removed, the elastic band is also removed, a cotton ball placed on the puncture site and if needed, a small bandage applied to stop the bleeding.

Do I Need To Fast For A Blood Test?

If you have been scheduled for tests, it’s always a good policy to ask whether you should fast in preparation for those tests. If your tests are fasting tests, you will need to refrain from eating anything at all for eight to twelve hours before your blood is drawn. Beverages, such as your usual morning coffee, tea or orange juice, should be avoided until after your appointment as well. However, you can – and should – drink plenty of plain water. Being well-hydrated for tests is important, making it easier for the lab technician to draw your blood, and water will not affect your test results. In most cases, it is fine to take your regular medications before your appointment, but ask your doctor to be sure, since some medications can cause inaccurate test results.

Tests that can be significantly affected by food intake include two main groups of tests; blood glucose testing and lipid level testing. The issue is that levels of both glucose and lipids – including LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides – fluctuate during the day according to what types of foods and beverages are ingested. Should these levels be tested at a high point, soon after a sugary drink or a fatty meal, results could come back artificially high, since the standardized reference range that your numbers will be compared with to interpret your test results is based on fasting tests. Of course, any treatment you receive for blood sugar or lipid related health issues will be, to some extent, based on those test results, so artificially inflated readings can lead to more aggressive treatment than is necessary.

How Long Does It Take For A Blood Test Result?

This depends to a great extent on the specific test ordered. It also depends upon the lab that will be processing your blood sample and compiling your tests results. Here at Health Testing Centers, most test results are delivered directly to the patient within one or two business days, although there are a few specific tests that can take slightly longer to complete.

How Do I Interpret My Blood Test Result?

Lab reports can look different, as each facility has its own reporting format. Yet all contain certain information which is mandated by federal legislation. Some labs include additional information that is not required. If you have specific questions on how to read your lab reports, ask for help from your healthcare provider. Typically, lab reports include:

  • Patient name and I.D. number.
  • Name and address of the laboratory location where the test was performed.
  • The date the test was administered and the test report date.
  • Name of the healthcare provider ordering or authorizing the test.
  • Specimen source (examples: blood, urine, spinal fluid).
  • Date and time of specimen collection.
  • Assigned sample number called an “accession number.”
  • Test name, which may be abbreviated.
  • Test results, usually in a number format; may also be shown as positive or negative or in text form.
  • When test results are abnormal, attention is typically drawn to the result either through highlighting, setting them apart, or indicating with an “H” for high, “L” for low, or “WNL” meaning within normal limits.
  • Dangerously abnormal results are called “critical results” and must be reported immediately to the person responsible for ordering the test, most often a healthcare provider. An asterisk (*) may be used to report the date and time the responsible person was notified.
  • Measurement units can vary from lab to lab. Some use kilograms or other metric forms. Many results contain a number followed by a unit of measurement. (Example: 35 milligrams per deciliter, or mg/dL).
  • Reference ranges are a list of “normal” ranges within which your results are expected to fall.
  • Some labs may provide interpretation of results with an explanation of what certain tests can indicate.
  • Specimen conditions, especially if lab criteria is not met. One example is a specimen received in less than good condition due to collection or storage problems. In these cases, a poor specimen may be noted on the report.

Be aware that some test results are false-positive, meaning that they show a condition or disease is present when it is not. A false-negative test does not detect what is being tested for, even when the condition is present. Discuss all results with a healthcare provider, including those that are inconsistent or inconclusive.

What Do Abnormal Blood Test Results Mean?

While this varies according to the specific test or tests done, tests results generally display their findings of the targeted markers as compared to a normal range. An important thing to consider as you go over test results is that there is a reason that normal is expressed as a range, rather than an absolute number; No two people have the exact same normal. This natural variation among individuals is the reason that routine testing is recommended, because it works to establish your own personal baseline on important health markers.
