What bloodwork do you find useful in a pp woman. I am having a physical in a few weeks and want to ask for what I need. My birth was in Feb and was a UCish type birth.

...I used to get tb skin tested occasionally (not the once a year suggested by the state), until I got exposed to tb...
A safe alternative is the QuantiFERON-TB Gold test. It's basically the same stuff except instead of injecting it into you, they draw your blood and mix in with the biological in a test tube and read the results there. You're not taking in anyone else's viruses or DNA/RNA and not increasing your chances for false positives and future chest x-rays.
