Arthritis Screening

The Arthritis Foundation says the following blood tests may be recommended if you and your doctor suspect you’re suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, Lyme disease or other inflammatory forms of arthritis:

  • Antinuclear antibody (ANA)
  • Rheumatoid factor (RF)
  • Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP)
  • Uric acid
  • HLA tissue typing
  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
  • C-reactive protein
  • Lyme serology

If your doctor has recommended a blood test, we can help.

Our lab is clean, easy-to-find, and far more affordable than hospital labs. We’ll make sure your blood is drawn quickly and efficiently by one of our trained lab professionals and that the results get where they need to go.
