"This test is often performed as part of a routine medical checkup or at the request of a physician seeking specific information," according to Dr. David Johnson, of McLeod Internal Medicine Seacoast. "It is a commonly performed test because it provides a picture of overall health and can be used to diagnose or detect conditions that may require further treatment."
