Like most people these days, you're probably concerned about your health. What you may not realize is that an easy way to evaluate yourself for many common health risks is through a simple blood test. Blood testing is one of the primary ways to screen for risk factors related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune disorders and cancer. Without any invasive testing that can cause significant discomfort, Personal Labs can provide comprehensive screenings for many of the most prevalent health problems that occur. You also don't have to schedule an appointment to see your physician, which can take out of your already busy day.
With more than 150 different screening tests, Personal Labs can help you identify factors in your blood that indicate potential problems. Armed with this information, you can talk to your doctor or specialist about what approaches and additional tests are necessary in order to keep you healthy. Personal Labs is easy to use--you can simply create an online account that is secure and contains all your relevant information. Once you have an account, you can then find one of nearly 2,000 convenient locations to have your blood drawn by a health care professional. Urine testing for some health conditions or to detect specific substances are also available through Personal Labs.
Within just two to three working days, you can log into your online Personal Labs account and find out the results of your testing. This is a convenient and private way to read your test results and you can also print them to bring with you to see your physician or specialist. If your tests come back with great results, all you have to do is log out and your results are saved for future reference or to compare with future tests. Parents who are concerned about their children's drug use can use the results to open frank discussions about the implications of illegal substances.
Personal Labs also provides testing for couples who are trying to conceive, including tests to measure testosterone, estrogen and sperm levels. Using these tests can help couples who are struggling with infertility to identify barriers to their success with their physician and formulate an approach that can be measured over time. For some individuals, regular blood or urine testing is necessary to maintain employment, education or other forms of supervision. With Personal Labs, accomplishing this isn't just easy, it's kept completely confidential.
Athletes can use Personal Labs to measure important levels such as testosterone, metabolic hormones and blood glucose levels. With your trainer, you can then make changes to your eating or exercise routine to bring your levels into an area that provides the maximum athletic benefit. For the everyday person, testing for vitamin D, cholesterol, thyroid hormone and iron levels are available through Personal Labs, for easy identification of relatively easy to address problems. Personal Labs was created by and is supervised by board certified physicians and every test is performed by an individual who has successfully completed the relevant and required training.
