While blood tests are frequently requested by clinicians, they must be interpreted in the proper context. Dr Mbagaya provides guidance and clarity to patients on the interpretation of blood tests, the selection of blood tests, and the assessment of blood tests. He also undertakes targeted health screening of different conditions.
He also provides vitamin deficiency tests, thyroid disease screening, and fatigue investigation while recommending specific diagnostic panels to his patients. He guides patients on the investigation and monitoring of heavy metal poisoning.
The proliferation of easy access blood tests means that patients can access many blood tests without the necessary clinical support. These include genetic panels, metabolic panels and other screening tests. This leads to increased anxiety, uncertainty and unwarranted further testing. Dr Mbagaya consults with patients to review the significance of tests and advise on the most suitable tests.
