Vitamin D

Cost = $50

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.

Diabetic Management Panel

Cost = $35

This screening for persons with Diabetes consists of these two tests which should be done 4 times per year:

  • Hemoglobin A1C
  • Glucose: The glucose provides a view of the body’s sugar management.  The hemoglobin A1C provides a record of the average blood glucose levels over the past 3 months.
