What are the possible risks of having a blood test?
Phlebotomy, or drawing blood, is a secure procedure.
Possibilities of risk include:
Bleeding and bruising, which are avoided by pressing firmly after the needle is removed
Pain, which is typically minor and might continue for several minutes
Ask your nurse, doctor, or phlebotomist to avoid taking a blood sample from an arm that is swollen or in danger of edema (swelling)
If you ever feel dizzy, alert the person taking your blood
Infection (this is relatively uncommon).
High levels can be problematic, indicating higher risks for heart attack, poor mental function, and bone fracture.

And it can draw attention to disease processes long before they become symptomatic.High blood homocysteine levels can damage the arteries' linings or cause the blood to clot more easily than it should.
C-reactive protein is an indicator of inflammation in the body. Homocysteine is an amino acid in our bodies. It can help to predict the onset of type 2 diabetes.
