The Purpose of a Fatigue Test
There’s tired, and then there’s tired. If you find yourself struggling to stay awake most days, with exhaustion that seems almost debilitating, you’re suffering from fatigue. This is beyond mere tiredness, which can usually be resolved with a good night’s sleep. Fatigue can recur, cause mental, emotional, and physical issues, and may be a sign of a medical condition. Headaches, vision issues, and dizziness are all symptoms of fatigue that can prevent you from feeling your best. That’s why it’s important to order fatigue labs that can help you get solutions to this pressing health challenge.

What Does the Fatigue Panel Measure?
A fatigue panel looks at several different markers to determine a cause behind your condition and set a course for treatment. This typically includes a CBC with differential/platelet count and a comprehensive metabolic panel, as well as testing for your iron and TSH levels, among others.
Who Should Take Labs for Fatigue?
Labs for fatigue can be helpful for anyone who is suffering from persistent exhaustion, particularly if there’s no explanation for it, such as medication or a medical condition.
Fatigue Labs Preparation
You will have to fast for 12 to 14 hours prior to your fatigue test. (Need more tips on prepping for a blood test? Visit our blog to learn more about giving a blood sample successfully.)
Fatigue Blood Test Results
Each test component of your blood work for fatigue will have a different normal value, as well as the urine test. You may require more testing, depending on your results, to help your doctor make a diagnosis. If you need a board-certified physician to help you review your results and make recommendations, schedule a telehealth visit with a Personalabs doctor.
