    Getting Bloodwork


    I'm going to the doctor/endocrinologist here in about a week. I want to have a full hormone panel (blood work) done (Test, Estrogen, Cortisol, etc.). I know some docs won't just run one b/c of insurance or whatever. Any tips on how to get him to run one? I really want to see what all my levels are at (and where they fall under each range). Thanks.

    Start with list of what you want.

    Then with list of ICD-9 codes, that is diagnosis in insurance speak.

    You find both on my post #44 here:
    Jan's BloodTest April13/2007

    Then ask him to give you Genova Diagnostics tests,
    at first just these two tests:

    GDX NutrEval Profile
    GDX NutrEval Profile

    Genova Diagnostics EstroEssence
    Genova Diagnostics EstroEssence

    also described in that post.

    Endos have a poor track record.
    Better luck with Osteopath.

    Look at my post #56
    specially the part on how to find doc backward,
    by locating compounding pharmacy in your area, first, and asking them for a doctors that they deal with.
