  • Bloodwork... would you get these tests?

    So, I'm coming up to 3 months Primal, and I want to get my bloodwork checked out just for a baseline of my progress, and to check what, if anything I might be lacking, etc.

    I've never had it done before, and am not sure which tests I should ask for to be honest. So I've been doing a bit of research, and these are the tests that I *think*I should ask for.
    Total cholesterol / HDL / LDL / Triglyceride / glucose
    LDL particle size
    Glycated hemoglobin (Hbalc or AIC)
    C reactive protein
    TSH / T3 (thryoid)
    vitamin D (25-hydroxy )
    Fasting insulin
    Vitamin C

    Does that cover it all? Or am I missing something?

    A lot of those things are in my usual work-up for my annual physical. Are you worried about anything in particular? Those all seem like good things to ask for, but you could get a blood glucose monitor, I don't see the need to have a doctor test your fasting insulin.

          No, not worried, but thought I'd like a baseline, just to check on progress and make sure all was OK. I see people posting their results up all the time. I don't have an annual physical, nor does anyone else I know. Is that a standard thing where you live?

          Wow quelsen! That's quite a long list! thanks for that, but do I need all of them...? And if not, how do I pick which ones? I dread to think how much it will cost me!
