Taking Charge of Your Health – Blood Testing without a Doctor

You do not have to rely on your doctor for blood screening for your overall health.  Many people do not have time to schedule an appointment, wait in the doctor’s office, then get a lab slip and go to the lab…wait again, just to get their annual blood testing that reveals their overall health.  Life Extension Foundation (www.lef.org) provides blood testing at very good rates.  For example, the Male or Female Life Extension Panel tests CBC/Chemistry Profile, DHEA-S, Estradios (PSA for men), Homocysteine, C-Reactive Protein, hormones depending on male/female, TSH for thyroid, and Vitamin D.  Member prices are $199.  Additional tests are available for Coenzyme Q10, Food Safe Allergy tests, heavy metals, as an example.

Why choose tests that aren’t covered by insurance?  In many instances, insurance will not cover a full panel of testing unless there is “cause.”  This creates a chicken-egg scenario because you want to know if there is a problem before you get sick.  Nip all this in the bud by ordering your own testing, and taking any negative results to your doctor for followup.
