Early detection can save your life.

What's Included

This test includes a screening for Hepatitis C. On August 16, 2012, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) began recommending all adults born between 1945 - 1965 get tested. This virus can lay dormant for many years before symptoms appear and nearly 75% of all HCV cases in the U.S. were born in these two decades.

This test is designed to detect the presence of Hepatitis C antibodies. This tests cannot tell if you still have an active viral infection, only that you were exposed to the virus in the past. Usually, the test is reported as "positive" or "negative." This panel includes the following tests.

This panel also includes general health baseline numbers. The same 65 health values used in a yearly checkup or insurance physical. It combines the General Health Screen (30 Tests) with two other individual tests evaluating common health concerns like anemia and infection (CBC), along with abnormal protein and ketones levels (UA).

You will repeat these same numbers routinely to look for specific trends in your health. Are certain numbers getting better, staying the same, or getting worse? With this simple knowledge about your health, you can concentrate on the areas you need to improve.

What is the Science of YOU?

The “Science of You” represents a new private way for individuals to engage in their health by knowing their numbers today, comparing them to future results and tracking changes in their health over a life time. It also allows them to communicate with other users, get information and share their experience right here on this page.

Think of it as a new type of connection between question and answer that combines the latest tools, information and devices together under one roof. It's approaching your health using the same technology that is changing the way we learn new things. Share your own "science of you experience" on the community wall to help us refine the process and teach others.

About Your Test Results

Your first set of results (along with any health information you choose to share) will be assembled into a single private record as a reference point going forward. This information BELONGS TO YOU and NO OUTSIDE PARTY can access it without your invitation and consent. It is not available to your employer, insurance company, or any government agency and NEVER becomes part of your permanent medical record UNLESS YOU PROVIDE IT.

Certain results, when complete, provide an option to purchase a one-on-one conversation (an expert review) from a growing list of health coaches, authors and other providers to: ask questions, identify risk factors and help create a plan to move forward with your own personal physician. This unique way to privately share information is revolutionizing the way we learn about our health.

When you have more than one value for a test, results are graphed together so you can easily track changes in your health over time. So the more tests the baseline includes, the more valuable it becomes in the future. Your results are reviewed by our medical team for any values needing immediate attention (critical) or requiring a follow up with your doctor (caution) before they are released to you. You will be notified by email when you can log back into your private health record and review your results.

Looking at the exact same data from different perspectives (medical doctors, alternative medicine, nutrition, etc) allows everyone you invite to learn from each other. Experts can add notes, recommend tests and follow up conversation (if needed), directly into one single record. Each conversation is recorded and placed as an MP3 file in your private record to get the most out of the valuable information they provide.

An Important Note About Your Experience

MYMEDLAB TESTS, SUPPORT GROUPS, OR EXPERT REVIEWS ARE NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR THE SERVICES OF A PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN. If you do not fully understand this important distinction about the services available here, please do not purchase our products. Our platform serves as a health concierge or guide that helps experts share their knowledge. These private conversations, based on the health information contained in your record, create a simple and convenient way to prepare for your next doctor's visit.

Your information is not sold, shared or used for ANY PURPOSE other than giving the expert the best information to help you. Once the conversation is complete, you have the option of un-checking any answer in your My History tab, which then deletes this information from your record.

While they CANNOT provide a diagnosis or recommend ANY specific treatment from a single lab report, they may identify results that require a follow up with your personal physician. You will have the opportunity to invite your trusted health providers to participate in these private health conversation. We make it simple to securely fax individual results to your doctor from inside your record, if you choose to make results part of your permanent medical record with them.
