I am trying to secure life insurance and they asked that I have blood test completed. I haven't been feeling well for the past few months. Should i be concerned about blood test-will it show I have been sick?
Secondly, if i get back on prednicone treatement-how long would I have to be on it to make sure my blood test comes back normal. I am not expert but assume looking to see if my protein or white count is up? Help!
What do you mean by not feeling well? what symptoms you have?
Blood tests to be done are decided based on your symptoms.
Steroid is not required in all circumstances. Only in moderate to severe colitis it is indicated.
