Project Information

A blood test is a lab analysis of things that may be found in your blood. You may have blood tests to keep track of how well you are managing a condition such as diabetes or high cholesterol. You may also have them for routine checkups or when you are ill.

Types of blood tests

These are common blood tests:

  • Complete blood count, also called a CBC
  • Blood chemistry tests
  • Blood enzyme tests
  • Blood tests for heart disease risk

Blood tests can give your healthcare provider a lot of information. He or she can see if certain elements in your blood are in a normal range. But in many cases, blood tests are only part of the information your healthcare provider needs to make a diagnosis of a health condition. You might need to have some other types of tests as well.
