“Let’s have some tests done.” I’m sure most of you will have heard this from your GP after explaining in a first consultation why you are “not feeling yourself”.
From high cholesterol, vitamin B or iron deficiency, STDs, thyroid function, diabetes, to other metabolic conditions... blood and urine tests can detect many issues. They are one of the most important ways to keep track of your physical wellbeing. They’re also key to making informed decisions about your health. And if you have a chronic disease like diabetes, they’ll tell you how your condition is evolving.
