Re: How Often Should You Get Blood Work Done?
Not all that long ago, the general recommendation was that otherwise healthy people in their 20s and 30s needed a general physical (which would include blood work) only once every 10 years. I thought it was now every 5 years, so the nurse is a little off on that one.
But unless something has shown up on the test, there is concern about something running in the family, or there has been some major change in lifestyle, environment, health . . . there is no need for blood work more frequently.
