Keeping Your Bottom Line Healthy With Any Lab Test Now!

Deciding to exercise is smart! So is choosing a salad over a hamburger or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. You are faced with dozens of choices every day, and many of them can affect your health. A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is just one of those choices. A Flexible Spending Account allows you to use your dollars (pre-tax!) to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses not covered by your insurance.

As the year starts to wind down, many people find they are left with a few dollars in their accounts and are faced with a “use it or lose it” situation. It’s your money; don’t let it go to waste! Any Lab Test Now offers you hundreds of ways to get the most from your FSA dollars, while you’re taking control of your health. Browse through our tests and you are bound to find something that can help you improve your health — and provide you with information that may not necessarily be covered by your usual annual physical. Here are a few ideas that can help you get started.

MMR TITER TESTING

After a certain age, you just sort of forget to worry about the measles, mumps, or rubella but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, “Not so fast!” The CDC is watching outbreaks in several jurisdictions and warning people (especially those traveling) to make sure they are protected! The MMR Titer measures your antibody levels and can provide you with a sense for whether your immune system has the ability to respond to an attack from one of these diseases. These latest measles outbreaks are no joke! According to the CDC, as of August of this year, 1,203 individual cases of measles have been confirmed. One hundred and twenty-four of those people were hospitalized, and 64 of them had complications! The MMR Titer is definitely money well spent!

FOOD SENSITIVITY AND INTOLERANCE TEST

Do you find that you seem to suffer from digestive problems now when you never had any problems in the past? Food intolerances develop later in life due to compromised digestive functions brought on by stress, alcohol intake and the use of NSAIDs. That means that foods you’ve been eating your whole life can begin to have a totally different effect on your body. The 50 Food Sensitivity and Intolerance Test can help you pinpoint what could otherwise be a “needle in a haystack” kind of situation. Remember, these aren’t allergic reactions! These are going to be much more subtle — bloating, fatigue, headaches, or weight gain.

ANEMIA PANEL

Fatigue and exhaustion seem to be states that we simply accept as a consequence of modern life, but we shouldn’t! Stress can cause fatigue for almost all of us, but should it be a way of life? You could actually be suffering from an undiagnosed medical condition like anemia. It’s estimated that approximately three million people in the United States suffer from anemia. Anemia is a condition where your red blood cell count is lower than normal. The lack of hemoglobin in your red blood cells can cause fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, and a number of other symptoms. Don’t just assume — know, with the Anemia Panel.

Presumptive Evidence of Immunity – Why It Is Important To You

So what is “presumptive evidence of immunity” and why should you care about it? In honor of National Immunization Awareness Month, Any Lab Test Now wants you to take a moment to think about measles, mumps, and rubella (also known as German measles). These aren’t diseases that too many of us spend time thinking about because we were most likely immunized against them when we were very little.

But how do you know that an immunization is still effective when you received it so long ago that you can’t even remember it? The CDC recommends that children get two doses of the MMR vaccine with the first dose starting at age 12 to 15 months. The second dose is usually given between the ages of 4 through 6. For most of us, that’s a pretty long time ago! If you received the shot as a child and you still have proof of it, you have “presumptive evidence of immunity.”

That’s not good enough for some people. Some people in high-risk situations may want more concrete evidence. Any Lab Test Now offers you a way to see if your vaccine is still protecting you — keeping you from worrying or from receiving an unnecessary shot. It’s called MMR Titer Testing. Simply put, it’s a blood test that checks to see if you are immune to measles, mumps, and rubella.

MMR Titer Testing

For some people, MMR Titer Testing provides peace of mind; for others, it might be required. No matter which category you fall into, Any Lab Test Now can provide you with certified lab results that will either prove you are safe — or let you know that you need to take action. Who might consider MMR Titer Testing? Turns out, a surprising number of people!

College StudentsAccording to the CDC, students at post-high school educational institutions who do not have presumptive evidence of immunity need two doses of MMR vaccine, separated by at least 28 days.

International TravelersEach year, unvaccinated people get infected while in other countries, bring the disease into the United States and spread it to others. Each year, an estimated 10 million people are affected by measles, and the disease kills almost 110,000 people around the world! Measles, in particular, is so contagious that if just one person has it, up to 90 percent of the people close to them who are not immune will also become infected.

Healthcare PersonnelPeople who work in hospitals and doctor’s offices are at high risk and have to have documented proof of protection.

Women of Childbearing AgeIf you’re thinking about becoming pregnant, you might want to check for evidence of immunity before pregnancy. Another important point: women should avoid getting pregnant for at least one month after getting the MMR vaccine.

If you’ve managed to keep your childhood immunization record then you have presumptive evidence of immunity. Also, if you were born before 1957, you should be covered as well. Otherwise, your local Any Lab Test Now is available to provide you with the proof of protection you need.
