Lab Testing Q&A
What is lab testing?
Lab testing helps your child’s provider determine if they have an illness or disease that requires treatment. Examples of lab testing services available at Pediatric Kare Klinic Pllc include:
- Blood tests
- Urine tests
- Throat swabs
- Nasal swabs
To determine which lab test, if any, is right for your child, your pediatric specialist reviews their medical history and symptoms and completes a physical examination.

Does my child need treatment?
After receiving results from your child’s lab tests, your pediatric specialist lets you know if they require treatment, such as:
Your Pediatric Kare Klinic Pllc specialist might simply suggest at-home care while your child recovers from an illness. Encourage them to get plenty of rest, drink a lot of fluids, and eat nutritious foods.
If your child is deficient in vitamins or minerals, your pediatric specialist might recommend they take dietary supplements to restore their overall health and wellness. Probiotics supplements help replenish healthy gut bacteria after your child takes antibiotics.
Taking over-the-counter or prescription medications, such as antibiotics, may help your child heal from an illness or disease. Certain medications or injections help them better manage a chronic disease, such as diabetes or allergies.
Additional diagnostic testing
If in-house lab tests rule out specific medical problems, but your child’s symptoms don’t subside, your provider might recommend additional diagnostic testing, such as X-rays or other imaging procedures.
If you suspect your child has an illness or disease and would like to know for sure and find the right treatment, schedule an appointment with Pediatric Kare Klinic Pllc to find out which lab test, if any, is right for them.
