Why This Test:
This is the most comprehensive and affordable test available to screen a wide range of your bodies systems for disease or complications.  This test is a perfect preventative measure used for early detection of disease. The earlier a disease is detected, the more treatable it is.

A large percentage of diseases are preventable through proper diet, exercise and medication which can only be accomplished if such diseases are diagnosed early enough through such health screening measures as are provided by

This test helps diagnose common diseases such as Heart Disease, Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease and Thyroid Disease.

Disease Statistics:

  • About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year. That’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Heart disease leads to Heart Attack or Stroke, which are the first and third leading causes of death for men and women and account for more than one-third (33.6%) of all U.S. deaths.
  • 25.8 million people in the United States (8.3% of the population) have diabetes. 7 million of these people are undiagnosed. 79 million people in the United States are prediabetes.
  • Kidney Disease affects 26 million Americans. Early detection can help to prevent progression of the disease, which ultimately can lead to Kidney Failure and death. Early Kidney Disease has no symptoms and even acute Kidney Failure is often overlooked.
  • Liver Disease affects approximately 25,000,000 Americans. 1 in every 10 American have been affected with Liver Disease. Up to 50 percent have no symptoms. Liver Disease is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States
  • It is estimated that 20 million Americans have some form of Thyroid Disease, and approximately 60% of those with Thyroid Disease do not know it.

The earlier these diseases are detected, the more treatable they are. See symptoms tab for more information.

Related Diseases:        
Heart Disease - Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women. This disease happens when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle become hardened and narrowed due to the buildup of cholesterol and other material, called plaque, on their inner walls. As this buildup grows, less blood can flow through the arteries and the heart muscle can't get the blood or oxygen it needs. This can lead to chest pain (angina) or a heart attack.

Heart Attack - When a blood clot blocks the flow of blood through a coronary artery — a blood vessel that feeds blood to a part of the heart muscle. Interrupted blood flow to your heart can damage or destroy a part of the heart muscle.

Stroke - When the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and food. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die.

Diabetes - A condition in which your pancreas no longer produces enough insulin or cells stop responding to the insulin that is produced, so that glucose in your blood cannot be absorbed into the cells of the body.

Liver Disease - A general term for diseases and disorders that cause the liver to function improperly or stop functioning. Common Liver diseases include: Cirrhosis, Jaundice, Hepatitis, Fatty Liver, Hepatitis, Fibrosis, Alcoholic Liver Disease and Cysts.

Kidney Disease - Occurs when Kidneys can no longer remove wastes and extra water from the blood as they should. Kidney Disease is most often caused by diabetes or high blood pressure.

Thyroid Disease - A reduction in the function of the Thyroid due to disease. Common Thyroid diseases include: Hyperthyroidism , Hypothyroidism, Benign Thyroid Disease and Thyroid Cancer.

I am healthy - why do I need a test?
Knowledge of your blood's chemistry is your best defense against some diseases. A simple blood test can indicate what is happening long before any symptoms of disease occur. When blood tests reveal abnormalities, it is important that you see your personal physician as quickly as possible. Even a test result that is normal is useful: not only does it help to rule out potential problem areas, it establishes a baseline of normal ranges against which future tests can be monitored.

Are these tests accurate?
Yes - a fully accredited Medical Reference Laboratory analyzes all test results.

Do I need to fast before taking a test?
To ensure absolute accuracy, a 10 - 12 hour fast is recommended. Black coffee and water are permitted during your period of fast. All medications should be taken as usual.
