How to Order Your Own Thyroid Blood Tests

Through a relationship with MyMedLab, you can now order your own thyroid, autoimmune and hormonal lab tests. There is no need for a doctor's visit or appointment in order to get your testing done.

The testing is provided by LabCorp, a nationwide network of medical testing laboratories, and the same exact provider used by many physicians and hospitals across the U.S.

Through MyMedLab, you can get these tests at 50% to 80% less than if you paid direct -- and costs are often far less than your doctor's marked up prices, even after insurance deductibles!

When you order your blood tests through MyMedLab:
  • You are getting the same tests that, up until now, were only available to doctors
  • Local sample collection at over 2000 convenient locations nationwide, and no appointment is necessary
  • Your results are completely confidential, and never become part of your medical record unless you provide them to your insurer
  • You have access to MyMedLab's free Personal Health Record (PHR), to keep records of all your test results, and track and monitor changes in health over time.
(Note: patient-ordered testing is not available to residents of NY, NJ or RI)

I've worked with MyMedLab to put together sets of various tests, known as profiles, that can help you get a jumpstart on living well. In conjunction with a great doctor (my Thyroid Top Doctors Directory can help you find a great practitioner), these tests can be a smart, empowered part of your strategy to get proper diagnosis and treatment.
