PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) $25

Early detection of prostate cancer; recommended annually for men 30 years and over.

PSA Free & Total $50

In men over 50 years with total PSA between 4.0 and 10.0 ng/mL, the percent (%) free PSA gives an estimate of the probability of cancer. In these circumstances the measurement of the % free PSA may aid in avoiding unnecessary biopsies. Elevated levels of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) have been associated with benign and malignant prostatic disorders. Studies indicate that in men 50 years or older measurement of PSA is a useful addition to the digital rectal exam in the early detection of prostate cancer. In addition, PSA decreases to undetectable levels following complete resection of the tumor and may rise again with recurrent disease or persist with residual disease. Thus, PSA levels may be of assistance in the management of prostate cancer patients.

Testosterone Total $55

Blood Group/Type $15

ABO blood group (A, B, AB, O) and type (+positive or – negative) The importance of knowing your blood type is to prevent the risk of you receiving an incompatible blood type at a time of need, such as during a blood transfusion or during surgery. If two different blood types are mixed, it can lead to a clumping of blood cells that can be potentially fatal.

Estradiol $50

In females measuring these levels are important for assessing the ovarian function. Estradiol plays an essential role throughout the menstrual cycle.

DHEA-S $30

An adrenal steroid hormone in the body, it is made by the adrenal glands and is then converted to androgens, estrogens and other hormones. These are the hormones that regulate fat and mineral metabolism, sexual and reproductive function, and energy levels.

Iron/Total Iron Binding Capacity $15

Useful in confirming the diagnosis of iron-deficiency anemia or hemochromatosis. To obtain the percent saturation, the serum iron is divided by the TIBC which gives the actual amount of saturated transferrin. The percent saturation is low in iron deficiency and high in iron storage diseases.

Ferritin $20

Useful in the diagnosis of hypochromic, microcytic anemias. Ferritin is the major iron storage protein in the body, the ferritin test is ordered as an indirect way to measure the iron stores in the body.

Folate (Folic Acid) $35

Useful in checking for the cause of anemia. A folic acid test is often done at the same time as a test for vitamin B12 levels because a lack of either vitamin may cause anemia. Also checks for malnutrition or problems absorbing folic acid. Used to determine if treatment for folic acid deficiency or vitamin B12 deficiency is working.

Vitamin B12 $35

A vitamin B12 test measures the amount of vitamin B12 in the blood. Vitamin B12 is usually measured at the same time as a folic acid because a lack of either one or both can lead to a form of anemia called megaloblastic anemia. Your body needs steady levels to make enough red blood cells and keep your nervous system working. Deficiency can lead to problems with brain function, the nervous system and other aspects of your health.

 

CA-125 $40

May be used to look for early signs of ovarian cancer in those at high risk.

CA-27.29 $40

Used for monitoring patients for metastatic breast cancer.

CA-19.9 $30

A large percentage of patients with G.I. tumors such as pancreatic, liver, gastric and colorectal and some other malignancies have been shown to have elevated CA-19.9 levels. Levels may be useful for monitoring disease activity or predicting relapse following treatment.

(Disclaimer: Cancer Antigen tests are not intended for screening use.)

A1C $20
(aka- Hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, Glycated Hemoglobin, Glycosylated Hemoglobin)

Used to detect and manage diabetes. The sugar in your blood is called glucose. When glucose builds up in your blood, it binds to the hemoglobin in your red blood cells. The A1c test measures how much glucose is bound. Red blood cells live for about 3 months, so the test shows the average level of glucose in your blood for the past 3 months. It is believed that around 6 million Americans have diabetes but don’t know it, and another 57 million have prediabetes.

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) $15

Provides information about the body’s fluid balance, levels of electrolytes like sodium, potassium, and how well the kidneys and liver are working. Includes a fasting glucose blood sugar level. (Total of 17 blood tests)

Microalbumin Urine $35

Checks for very small (micro) amounts of protein called albumin in your urine. Protein in the urine can signify several things, including kidney damage from uncontrolled diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease, heart failure, and lupus. It can also occur due to strenuous exercise, blood in the urine, urinary tract infections, and certain medications, like aspirin and some antibiotics.

CA 125 $40

May be used to look for early signs of ovarian cancer in those at high risk.

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) $40

The only way to know for sure whether you have HIV is to get tested. The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to help you take steps to keep you and your partner(s) healthy. If your behavior puts you at risk after you are tested, you should think about being tested again. Some people at higher risk should get tested more often. About 1 in 7 people in the United States who have HIV do not know they have it.

Vitamin D Level 25 (OH) $40

Numerous studies have shown that many Americans have low vitamin D levels. Vitamin D has been shown to boost bone health and it may play a role in preventing diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and other illnesses.
