Evaluate the health of your heart and arteries, measure your good and bad cholesterol, fat in the blood, stress hormones, and blood sugar levels.

What's included in Diet Panel:

 

Total Cholesterol

Total Cholesterol is a combination of three types of cholesterol: HDL, LDL, and part of triglycerides. High cholesterol may put you at risk for heart disease or stroke. A low cholesterol measurement can indicate other health conditions. It is possible for your total cholesterol to be high when your other cholesterol results are in healthy ranges. In this case, we recommend focusing on your triglycerides (if available), LDL, and HDL cholesterol results.

 

HDL Cholesterol

High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is commonly called "good" cholesterol. Unlike other cholesterol levels, the HDL cholesterol test result is best if it is high. Elevated HDL cholesterol is associated with decreased risk of heart disease. A low level of HDL cholesterol can be associated with increased risk for heart disease. Genetic factors or conditions including liver disease, malnutrition, or hyperthyroidism may decrease HDL cholesterol levels. Smoking and drinking alcohol may also decrease your HDL cholesterol level.

 

LDL Cholesterol

Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is considered "bad" cholesterol. Elevated LDL cholesterol is associated with an increased risk of heart disease. LDL cholesterol often increases with a diet high in cholesterol and saturated fats. For many people, their LDL cholesterol is based on heredity. Lifestyle choices including diet and many medications are effective in lowering the LDL cholesterol level.

 

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are fats composed of fatty acids and glycerol. They are moved through the bloodstream by combining with proteins to form particles called lipoproteins. Triglycerides pass from the liver to other parts of the body that need lipoproteins for energy. Triglycerides then return to the liver where they are removed from the body. The level of triglycerides in your blood tells how well your body processes the fat in your diet. Accurate results require fasting for nine to twelve hours (no food or drink except water and medication) prior to testing.

 

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

TSH is made in the pituitary gland and helps the thyroid produce Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) hormones that help regulate heart rate, metabolism, and temperature. Symptoms of thyroid disorders can include unexpected weight gain or loss, increased heart rate, hair loss, insomnia, eye sensitivity, and irregular menstruation. A thyroid-stimulating hormone test evaluates the thyroid gland, and in some cases, pituitary gland function. It can also help diagnose thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

  

Glucose (Blood Sugar)

Glucose is the chief source of energy for all cells in the body. Glucose levels are regulated by hormones produced by your pancreas, including insulin. A glucose level outside the optimal range could be a sign that the body is not correctly producing or using insulin. These conditions are hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), prediabetes (elevated blood sugar), and diabetes (high blood sugar). For the most accurate result you should fast (not eat or drink anything but water) for at least 8 hours before your screening. If you were not fasting at the time of your screening, you should interpret your result against an optimal range of less than 140 mg/dL.

 

Hemoglobin A1c

Good fasting glucose levels can be misleading. Hemoglobin A1c measures the average amount of blood sugar (glucose) level for the past two to three months. The blood level of glucose is tightly controlled by hormones, especially insulin produced by the pancreas. Consistently, high blood glucose is typically observed in individuals with uncontrolled diabetes or undiagnosed diabetes. In people with diabetes, insulin is either less effective or not produced in sufficient quantity thus making it harder to manage the amount of sugar passing through the blood.

Lab tests FAQs

No. At Tripment Health, we focus on providing transparent healthcare services to uninsured or under-insured individuals. We’ve negotiated prices directly with lab test facilities to make diagnostic lab panels available to individuals who would rather pay directly than go through a private or government-sponsored insurance carrier.

No. By purchasing a blood panel, you will not be able to submit any claim, bill, or other request for reimbursement to any insurer, third-party payer, or Government health program. However, you can use your FSA or HSA card.

You will receive a payment confirmation email, then an additional email confirming your appointment details (type of test, time and location of appointment, and QR code). You will need to present your QR code to the testing facility in order to check in.

Once your test is complete, you will receive your results within 1-3 business days.

With a blood panel, you can establish your body’s baseline values for basic health measurements like cholesterol (total, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol/HDL ratio), glucose and hemoglobin A1c. Additionally, depending on the blood panel you choose, you will receive data on performance measurements such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, and/or Testosterone.

 

Your results are more than just numbers. Your results come with a personalized recommendation from one of our physicians.

No. One of our physicians will order the panels for you.

You must be 18 or over to be able to get tested.
