Why would lab tests be needed for my child?

Lab testing may be necessary if your child exhibits unexplained symptoms that call for an instant diagnosis, such as a fever, abdominal pain, or swelling. Together with a physical examination, X-rays, or other diagnostic imaging tests, your physician might also recommend blood work. Children with risk factors for particular diseases, such as a family history of diabetes, might also have blood testing as part of preventative treatment. At Smart Care Pediatrics in Talladega, Alabama, we offer rapid lab tests, so your kid won’t need to travel elsewhere for testing.
