In brief: It varies
Lab tests are an important part of medicine.
However, ordering the wrong test can be a waste of money and may even lead to further unnecessary testing. Tests are usually directed by a patient's symptoms and conditions. In addition, screening tests may be done to look for signs of common diseases like diabetes or high cholesterol. Talk to a doctor to determine what tests are right for you.
