Blood Tests For ALS

Blood tests for people suspected of having ALS are routine laboratory tests. Usually ALS patients will not show any abnormalities within their blood, but blood tests are conducted to show that no other disease is present that is being mistaken for ALS.

For example, a blood test will be able to check your blood cell count, hormone levels, as well as liver and kidney function to detect if any infections are present.
