These Annual Screening Tests include: blood chemistry panel, CBC, PSA, HAlC, and Vitamin D. Healthelife blood draws are patient-directed, so you will receive your results via MySheridanHealth – our Patient Portal – or via mail if requested. These tests DO NOT require a physician’s order.

This screening measures a specific protein that is produced by the male prostate gland.  The recommended age for beginning this screening varies from 47 to 50, depending on an individual’s risk factors.  Elevations of PSA may occur in men with prostate cancer or non-cancerous prostatic diseases. Talk with your doctor about prostate screening.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is made by the body after exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun.  Vitamin D can also be obtained by taking supplements and from eating certain foods.  This test provides the total level of vitamin D found in a patient’s blood serum and provides information on the levels of vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 in blood serum which is helpful for physicians prescribing therapy for vitamin D deficiency.  A physician would typically evaluate a vitamin D test result in connection with several other factors affecting a patient’s health, such as medical history, gender and age.  Recently, they have found that in some cases, relatively low levels of vitamin D may increase your risk of other diseases.

Cost = $35
