Blood testing provides insightful information about your health. For a blood test, a technician at Advanced OBGYN takes a small sample of blood for your arm and gives it to the in-house lab for testing. Your doctor receives the results and identifies any conditions or concerns that might need monitoring or treatment.
During pregnancy, blood tests can tell your doctor a lot about the health of you and your baby, so it’s important to have blood testing as part of your prenatal care.
The lab at Advanced OBGYN focuses on women’s health by collecting blood samples for diagnosing and understanding general women’s health and the health of pregnant women.
You can have issues that only a blood sample can identify, like high blood glucose levels or low calcium levels.
Blood testing can diagnose many conditions, including:
A blood test can also give your doctors information about specific components of your blood that are important during pregnancy, including:
Rh factor is a protein on the surface of red blood cells. If you have it, you’re Rh-positive and vice-versa. This test is especially important during pregnancy because if you don’t have the Rh factor, but your baby does, complications can occur that can be harmful to your baby. With a timely blood test, your doctor can take steps to prevent complications from arising.
About 2-5% of women develop a form of temporary diabetes during pregnancy called gestational diabetes. A glucose test can determine whether you need to take steps to keep your glucose levels in check.
Monitoring your iron levels during pregnancy is essential. Low iron levels increase your risk of anemia, which can lead to a premature birth if it’s severe anemia. If your levels are low, your doctor may recommend iron supplements.
Dr. Agayeva and Dr. Brill can also order blood samples for early detection of congenital disabilities in babies. Typically, this sample is taken after you reach your eighth week of pregnancy and can measure the possibility of your baby developing Down Syndrome, spina bifida, and other abnormalities.
