Pregnancy presents an interesting challenge when doing blood chemistry and CBC analysis. The demands placed upon the body’s normal physiology and biochemistry during this period of rapid growth and development will cause many of the values to be outside of their optimal level. This should not necessarily be viewed as indicative of a disease process. The following represents some of the “normal” changes associated with pregnancy.
