Preventive Medicine Blood Tests
Terms and Conditions:
1.) Locations: Testing is performed by Lab Corp, a nationally-certified medical laboratory. After receiving your requisition
form via email, you will go to a local Lab Corp lab to have your blood drawn. Click here to find the nearest Lab Corp facility near you.
You can pre-schedule your appointment at Labcorp at the above link so you will not have to wait.
2.) Testing is unavailable in some states. Due to state regulations, these tests are not available in California, New York, New Jersey or Rhode Island. Please do not order blood tests if you reside in these states; your money will be refunded and no tests will be ordered for you.
3.) Insurance: no insurance required or accepted. These are self-pay tests.
4.) Wellness Club Member Discounts. Members receive a 10% discount on all tests.
If you are not a Wellness Club member, you will be offered a membership opportunity at
checkout in order to qualify for special member pricing. Wellness Club member discounts
will be automatically calculated in your shopping cart.
Includes HgA1C, TSH, hs-CRP, ferritin and vitamin D

This Panel INCLUDES all tests of the Opti-Plus Profile
From Dr. Myatt’s Medical White Paper on Cardiovascular Risk Factors:
“…As many as fifty percent of all first heart attacks are last heart attacks. Half of all people who have a heart attack die from “sudden cardiac death.” People with NO conventional risk factors are more likely to die “sudden death” from a first heart attack. Sudden cardiac death is the first and only sign of heart disease in this group…”
Dr. Myatt has been able to locate and provide a comprehensive Cardiac Risk Profile that includes both currently accepted Cardiac Risk Factors and the New Emerging Cardiac Risk Factors that she discusses in her Medical White Paper.
These “emerging Risk Factors” are the ones that your conventional doctor – even your conventional cardiologist – will not test for.

Used to evaluate status and function of many systems the Complete Blood Counts with differential and platelets includes:
- mean corpuscular volume (MCV),
- mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH),
- mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC),
- red cell distribution width (RDW),
- percentage and absolute differential counts,
- platelet count;
- red cell count,
- white blood cell count (WBC).

This is the single best general test for annual health monitoring.
This profile includes:
I.) Chemistry screen:
- Fasting Glucose (blood sugar)
- Uric acid
- BUN (blood urea nitrogen): Measures liver and kidney function
- Creatinine: A test used to measure kidney function
- BUN/Creatinine Ratio: For diagnosis of impaired renal function
- Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) – kidney function
- Carbon Dioxide
- Total Protein
- Albumin/Globulin Ratio
- Bilirubin: Evaluates kidney and liver function
- Alkaline Phosphatase: Evaluation of liver and bone diseases
- LDH (lactic dehydrogenase)
- AST (SGOT): Evaluates liver function
- ALT (SGPT): Evaluates liver function
- GGT: Liver function
- Iron (serum)
II.) Lipid Profile: Evaluates the risk for developing atherosclerosis (arterial plaque) and coronary heart disease.
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL Cholesterol
- LDL Cholesterol
- Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio
III.) Complete Blood Count with Differential and Platelet Count:
- Red blood cell count
- Red blood cell indices
- Mean corpuscular hemoglobin
- Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration
- Red blood cell distribution
- White blood cell count
- Differential count
- Platelet coun
IV.) Thyroid Function
- TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormones)
- T4 (total)
- T3 Uptake
V.) Urinalysis – Diabetes, various forms of kidney disease, and chronic urinary tract infections can show in the urine even if they are not causing symptoms. This test includes urine chemistry and a microscopic evaluation of urine to screen for occult (“hidden” disease).
VI.) Additional Health Markers – Cardiac, Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome.
- Hemoglobin A1C — blood sugar control over a 2-3 month period. The “Gold standard” screen for diabetes, pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
- CRP, High Sensitivity (sign of subtle inflammation). A factor in many diseases including heart disease.
- Ferritin (storage iron). Higher levels are strongly associated with increased heart disease risk. Very low levels indicate iron deficiency anemia.
- TIBC / % Saturation (Total Iron Binding Capacity) – Helps differentiate between various types of anemia and to diagnose iron overload (a heart-risk factor).
Information and ordering here: Opti-Plus Profile
Includes estradiol, total estrogens, pregnenelone, progesterone, testosterone (total) and DHEA-S.

High iron, as measured by the storage iron, ferritin, is associated with an increased
risk of cardiovascular disease. Excess iron in the body generates free radicals.

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is the single test used in conventional medicine to
screen for thyroid dysfunction, and this single number can give an incorrect diagnosis
a large percentage of the time.
Dr. Myatt uses TSH — a hormone actually produced by the pituitary — along with the
two active hormones, T3 and T4, to evaluate for thyroid hormone adequacy.
In addition, reverse T3 (rT3) an, “inert” hormone that can block thyroid hormone receptors,
is also part of what Dr. Myatt considers to be the optimal screening profile for normal thyroid
This test includes TSH, free T3, free T4 and reverse T3.
