Preventive blood work usually includes a complete blood count (CBC) which will evaluate your red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelet count. The CBC can be used by your physician to screen for diseases and conditions such as anemia, infection, or inflammation. A CBC blood test will also help your provider monitor any treatment options that you have been going through that may affect your blood cells.
Another preventive blood test is the comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), which will screen for conditions such as liver disease, kidney disease, or diabetes. This test can also help your provider monitor you after you have been taking medications that could affect your liver or kidney function.
