Re: Blood Tests Determine Supplements
No one needs a doctor to order blood tests. I just ordered a blood test online for $47.00 and will be visiting one of the 1800 blood test offices nationwide (2 blocks from my home) next month. It's a CBC/Chemistry Profile that measures 45 different blood components including cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, iron, minerals, blood cell counts, liver-kidney functions and much more. You're sent the results by mail. A few months ago, I went to a doctor and the cost of two visits plus the test was almost $500. Since I have a high deductable it was out of my pocket. Obviously, if you have a test that is not normal (ex: WBC is 17) then you would need the service of a doctor. On my own, I also get a CT Lung Scan (former smoker) each year. Next month, I plan to get a CT Heart Scan also without a doctor referral. I also take my blood pressure and pulse rate on a regular basis. There's a lot we can do on our own.
