Recommended annual blood tests for j-pouch patients

This document explains the blood tests that St. Mark’s patients usually have done as part of their annual checkup at the hospital.

If you no longer have follow ups at St. Mark’s or are not a patient there, then you can request that your G.P. does these as part of your Annual Long Term Condition review.

These tests may be carried out during your routine physical examination or may be used as part of a more comprehensive set of tests.
