Motivation: Routine Testing

In this week’s Motivation, Dr. Palermo discusses the importance of testing and optimizing your health.

Annual blood testing is the most important step patients can take to prevent life-threatening diseases; however, most patients do not get the in-depth testing that can give them the tools to optimize their health.

A conventional visit typically includes a blood count, a CMP, a lipid profile, and, if you are lucky, a TSH. Functional testing will help catch critical changes in a patient’s functional state before they manifest as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or worse.

Having the proper blood tests and knowing how to do a thorough functionally oriented analysis of the results can empower patients to enact science-based disease-prevention programs that could add decades of healthy function to their lives. Learn about what tests to consider to look deeper into your health in this Motivation!
