Shirlee’s Ultimate Women’s Gym in Upland will be hosting a special event with Cadira Labs on Monday August 21 from 9 am to 3 pm. Cadira will be offering the opportunity to have wellness blood testing. The testing is covered by most insurances (check to see if yours will cover the tests). Appointments take about 10 to 15 minutes. To sign up for an appointment, please ask at the front desk.
Here is an excerpt from the Cadira Lab flier that tells about the wellness panel tests:
Your Wellness Blood Panel includes a complete blood panel, which may aid in the evaluation of conditions ranging from anemia to infection to leukemia and beyond. It also includes acomplete metabolic panel, which measures markers that may be critical for understanding organ function and in screening for conditions such as diabetes.
IMPORTANT HORMONE MARKERS
Physicians are becoming increasingly aware of the distinct role that specific hormones play in a patient’s well-being, and understanding your own numbers can give you a more thorough understanding of your unique health status. How thorough? See the “Important Insight for Detailed Diagnoses” box for just some of the conditions that these markers may help identify.
The vitamin levels we test for can help your physician identify anemia, central nervous system disorders, bone disorders and susceptibility to other conditions. Your panel will measure a number of vitamin levels directly – Iron, B12, D and Folate, for example – and it will also include a number of tests that may indirectly help identify vitamin imbalances and related issues.
