A Reminder to All Women to Make Your Health a Priority

We are living in an unprecedented time of uncertainty, thanks to COVID-19. Given we are living in a world of unknowns, Any Lab Test Now encourages moms, wives, grandmothers, daughters, sisters and aunts to highlight National Women’s Health Week (May 10–16) on the calendar as the time to stop, reflect and make sure feeling good is a top priority.

Taking Control of Your Health

National Women’s Health Week is celebrated every year as a time set aside for women to take control of their health. It’s a great opportunity for busy women who feel like they run around non-stop helping everyone else to focus on themselves. At Any Lab Test Now, we give you the tools to answer important health questions that might be floating around in your head right now.

  • Am I constantly tired because of coronavirus anxiety, or is it something bigger?
  • Is my thyroid out of whack? I’ve gained 15 pounds since January!
  • Taking a walk during quarantine is exhausting. Why is it so hard for me to catch my breath when going around the block with my daughter?
  • These mood swings are crazy! Will they ever stop?

So, how can Any Lab Test Now help women make health their priority? Direct access to thousands of lab tests. Right now, during a time when you might be a little wary of bumping into a coronavirus patient at your doctor’s office, Any Lab Test Now provides you a safe and clean alternative location for lab work. When you get your test results, you can easily make a telemedicine appointment with your physician and share the details.

 Testing That is Specific to Women’s Needs

Our lab experts are always available to make sure you receive the right test for your needs. Heart disease, diabetes, thyroid imbalance are all serious medical problems no woman wants to face. Any Lab Test Now offers a variety of choices to help you avoid such a scary diagnosis.

A Comprehensive Female Panel is a great place to start. It provides answers about how your organs are working, like your kidney and liver function. This test also includes blood work and cholesterol counts that will provide a synopsis of your heart health, an important checkup, considering heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States.

Next on the list is something that affects women much more so than men, thyroid issues. A Thyroid Panel at Any Lab Test Now is the gold standard to check to see if your thyroid is out of whack! The thyroid is a small gland in the base of the neck that makes the thyroid hormone. It plays a role in how you burn calories, in your body temperature, plus how your body utilizes other hormones and vitamins. If your thyroid level drops, you might feel tired all of the time, gain weight or even have dry skin. On the flip side, too much thyroid hormone, although it only affects a small percentage of the population, can harm your heart. Specialists with Harvard Health say this condition can trigger abnormal heart rhythms.

Another test choice at Any Lab Test Now that is important for women is linked to osteoporosis, a debilitating disease that can cause years of pain and discomfort. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, osteoporosis is a condition that affects one out of four American women over the age of 65. Vitamin D helps with bone health, immune, nerve and muscular function. When your vitamin D is low, maybe because you are spending less time outside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it could create problems down the road. At Any Lab Test Now, an Osteoporosis Risk Panel can check your levels and answer questions about whether you are at risk.

 Setting aside the time for one of these tests during National Women’s Health Week will require less than an hour. Any Lab Test Now gives you direct access to thousands of lab tests, and you can get most of the tests done in about 15 minutes at one of more than 180 locations nationwide. We understand you are living in a world of unknowns, and we know providing some sort of clarity allows you to take control of your health.
