We’ve all heard that old saying, “you don’t know what you don’t know”. I feel like this perfectly describes why we encourage lab testing here at Pure Prescriptions. We believe it’s better to be in the “know” when comes to health. But we also understand that lab testing, from an outside view, can seem daunting. Hopefully this blog series will help dispel some fears, teach you how to get started with testing and show you how being fully informed can benefit your daily living.
Did You Know That Anyone Can Order Lab Testing?
Years ago, the only ways to get any blood tests were by going directly through your doctor. For me at times, it felt like I had to constantly beg my physician to add certain markers to my panel. They would judge me; tell me they were unnecessary, which really angered me that my health questions were not being addressed or being taken seriously. Thankfully, now you can simply order your own tests privately and if you wish to have your physician read them for you, this is your personal choice. There is a wonderful freedom having control over your testing and being able to share them with any health professional you wish to see.
Here at Pure Prescriptions, we offer a full suite of lab test options from simple Vitamin D3 level checks to comprehensive blood panels with multiple biomarkers and tests in between to fit any budget.
