  • Tests at Home - Article reprint

    Before you change your diet, it helps to know what you're trying to affect. Today's Wall Street Journal has an interesting article about home diagnostic tests, listing several resources. Unfortunately, in printing to pdf the hyperlinks in the sidebar are lost, but the article should help folks looking for where to get some tests.

    Possibly the best line of the entire article is at the end:

    Still, doctors say interpreting test results is more than reading a number. Heart-related lab findings, for instance, should be evaluated as part of a broader health profile that would include factors such as family history and blood pressure. "No test should be interpreted in isolation," says Thomas Behrenbeck, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic. That's because tests like those for cholesterol "denote risk factors, they do not diagnose disease."

    How about that?
