After your doctor has written you a request form, there are a number of questions you may have regarding your tests.
Do I Need To Fast?
Not all tests require fasting beforehand. However, there are some tests which will require you to fast for 8 – 15 hours, for example cholesterol, lipids, fasting glucose. Fasting should not exceed 15 hours.
We recommend that you fast overnight. You should drink water during this time and take any medication you would normally take, unless advised by your doctor.
Your doctor will inform you of any tests that require fasting or you may contact Dr. Essa Laboratory & Diagnostic Centre for advice.
Is There Any Risk Of Contracting Disease At A Pathology Laboratory?
This is possible only in places where standardized procedures of sample collection are not followed. The source of risk is mainly the needle prick. The needle should be sterile, and the area where the prick is made should be cleaned with spirit prior to sample collection.
Do I Need To Make An Appointment For My Tests?
For most tests an appointment is not required and on arrival at the center you will be attended in order. There are a small number of tests that require an appointment and these are listed in specialized test details for each collection centre.
When And How Should I Collect Urine Sample?
If you wish to collect a urine sample at home, kindly collect a labeled container from our laboratory. You must collect early morning midstream sample for best results. After collection, the sample must be sent within 1- 2 hours to the laboratory.
When Will My Results Be Ready?
Routine test results are generally available within 2-3 days of collection. However, some testing is more involved and may take longer.
To assist you in organizing an appointment with your doctor, we encourage you to ask your doctor when the results will be available.
