The following is a list of blood tests that are generally recommended when reviewing overall wellness. You can ask your primary care doctor about ordering them for you. It is up to you and your doctor which of the tests she/he feels comfortable in ordering as they do need to have diagnosis codes. Therefore; your doctor may choose to order all or some of these tests. Some tests may not be covered by your insurance and therefore, the payment will be your responsibility. You can call the lab directly for the prices of the lab tests ahead of time, should that be a concern. If you don’t currently have a doctor, see my article entitled, Finding a Wellness Doctor. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THESE LAB TESTS BE DONE “NON FASTING.”
