Getting a Full Pathology Screen – what are my lipid levels?
Posted Dec 31 2009 2:53am
Arranging your own full pathology report is normally an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to know their actual general health status or wants to monitor any particular changes. As consultant urologist Mr Rick Popert explains in his article on prostate cancer, it is often measuring changes in PSA levels rather than absolute values that is the important diagnostic factor for checking prostate cancer status. Alternatively, the New Year is an excellent opportunity to get fit, cut down on the alcohol or adopt a better diet. In all cases it is good to see the actual impact on your own biochemistry, from lipid levels to liver function tests for example.
Anyone seeking to test themselves for anything from a full screen to individual tests including viruses or haemoglobin can do so by contacting a reputable and controlled pathology laboratory.
