When to get tested?
Your healthcare provider may ask you to go for this test, if they suspect that you may have hemolytic anemia, and pyruvate kinase deficiency.
A blood sample will be collected through a vein in your upper hand.
No special preparations are needed to go for the test. The Pyruvate test cost is reasonable.
Decreased pyruvate levels indicate that you may have pyruvate kinase deficiency. Consult with your doctor for a clear understanding of your test results. You can book a pyruvate test online as well.
