    Best lab for complete panel?


    Hi, what is the best lab (and panel name/cost) to order a complete blood panel that includes all the important hormones, adrenals and thyroid? I assume my doctor can order from any lab that I choose, if I am paying.

    Thanks.

    You can get a panel like that done through the Life Extension Foundation for about $500.00. They have member prices and non-member prices. The $500.00 assumes you are a member. The tests are actually done by Lab Corp.

    It is worth paying the $75.00 to become a member because you will save more than that on the lab tests.

    Just so you know, if you are on public assistance in USA,
    it is same coverage as Medicare.

    So, possibly you have all the coverage that you need.
    Just find the right doctor.
    It is hard to beat the good ol' USA.
    I hope for no change to present system.
