Thread: Getting the right blood work done.

  1. #1

    Getting the right blood work done.

    I have my blood tested fairly often, but I believe the tests being done are way too general in scope. Can anybody post a list of minimal indicators that should be checked when doing blood work for someone with a SCI? Same deal for urine tests. How about basics for a urine analysis?

    Ordering tests, and getting paid for them must be based on complaints,diagnosis, patient's history etc... If you have no complaints or specific complaints or concerns then the healthcare providers are testing you with the "general" tests that they think are appropriate to order such as a CBC, chem panels, annual urodynamics, etc....and of course depends on when your injury was, level, ASIA score etc.. So there are alot of variables.
