Why do we test our blood?

Blood tests can be carried out for many reasons: tracking how well you’re managing a condition like high cholesterol or diabetes, checking how well organs like your kidneys, liver, heart, and thyroid are working, or they may be ordered as a routine check during a physical exam to assess overall health. 

The standard complete blood test you get at your doctor’s office tests for between 5-10 biomarkers. A few more biomarkers may be looked at for specialized tests for specific diseases or conditions. 

The 10X Health blood test tests for 60+ biomarkers, making it one of the most comprehensive blood tests available. 

What is a Biomarker? 

A biomarker, short for biological marker, refers to a measurable indicator or characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as a sign of a biological or pathological process, disease condition, or response to treatment. Biomarkers can be found in various biological sources, including blood, urine, tissues, or even genetic material like DNA. 

Biomarkers serve several important roles in medicine and research. They can be used for: 

  1. Disease diagnosis: Biomarkers can help identify the presence of a disease or condition. For example, elevated levels of specific proteins in the blood can indicate the presence of certain types of cancer. 
  2. Disease prognosis: Biomarkers can provide information about the likely course or outcome of a disease. They can help predict the severity or progression of a condition, as well as the likelihood of treatment response. 
  3. Treatment selection and monitoring: Biomarkers can assist in tailoring treatments to individual patients by predicting the most effective therapy or identifying potential adverse reactions. They can also be used to monitor the response to treatment over time. 

How Is 10X Health’s Blood Test Different?
