Preparation Before Hematology-oncology Blood Check?
what should the patient do before hematology-oncology blood check? do you also have to fast?
Hello, good night Nilak ..
Hematology-oncology examination is a series of examinations to detect signs of neglect in the blood. Diseases related to hematology-oncology include hemophilia, thallasemia, leukemia, lymphoma, and so forth. In general, oncology hematology examination does not require prior fasting, but this actually depends on what panel is examined. If the doctor who examined you requires the results of the examination of iron levels, TIBC, and folic acid in the blood, then you are advised to fast first for 12 hours. Whereas hematological examination panels such as complete hematology, phenotyping leukemia, HbH inclusion bodies, etc. do not require fasting before blood collection.
It is recommended that you make sure this goes back to the doctor who examined you.
That's all, hope it helps.
