One of the primary uses of laboratory tests is in diagnosing diseases and medical conditions. Blood tests, for example, can provide information about the levels of various chemicals, enzymes, hormones, and other markers in the blood, which can help identify the presence of infections, metabolic disorders, hormonal imbalances, and other health conditions. Urine tests can be used to detect the presence of drugs, evaluate kidney function, screen for infections, and monitor certain chronic conditions such as diabetes.
Laboratory tests also play a crucial role in monitoring the progression and management of chronic diseases. For instance, blood tests can be used to monitor cholesterol levels, blood glucose levels, liver and kidney function, and other parameters to assess how well a patient is responding to treatment and to make necessary adjustments in the management plan.
Laboratory tests are an essential tool in modern medicine that can provide valuable information about a patient’s health status, aid in diagnosing medical conditions, monitor disease progression, and guide treatment decisions. Lab tests can be performed on various types of specimens such as blood, urine, saliva, tissue, and other bodily fluids, and are conducted in specialized laboratories by trained professionals.
Lab tests also play a crucial role in detecting health problems and monitoring their developments. Lab tests are essential in preventive care and screening. For instance, cholesterol screenings, sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing, and prenatal testing are some common lab tests used for early detection of potential health risks. By identifying health conditions early and monitoring risks, lab tests are capable of improving health outcomes for a wide range of patients.

These services include digital X-rays and various laboratory tests that aid in diagnosing and monitoring medical conditions. Some of the common lab tests offered by Immediate Care of Oklahoma include strep screens, urine analysis, pregnancy tests, mono tests, flu screens, and more.
Strep screens are used to detect the presence of streptococcal bacteria, which can cause strep throat, a common bacterial infection. Urine analysis tests help assess kidney function, detect urinary tract infections (UTIs), and screen for other medical conditions.
Pregnancy tests are used to determine if a woman is pregnant by detecting the presence of the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), in the blood or urine. Mono tests are used to diagnose infectious mononucleosis, a viral illness caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Flu screens are used to detect the influenza virus, which causes the flu.
