A D-dimer is a blood test to help evaluate for possible blood clots. A D-dimer measures the tendency of blood to clot inappropriately. A D-dimer may be used to evaluate possible health threats such as a stroke, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), PE (pulmonary embolism) and arterial plaque rupture.
A Hemoglobin A1c is a blood test that measures the average amount of glucose that has chemically attached to red blood cells over the past 6-8 weeks. Think of it this way. Sugar is sticky. When sugar sticks to certain proteins inside the hemoglobin, it naturally hangs around for a longer period of time because it is harder to get it off the hemoglobin.
Here is our basic health and wellness screen. This is a great panel for a basic health and wellness physical, a pre-employment physical or for your own personal information and record keeping. This screen includes a CBC, CMP, Lipids (cholesterol), TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), as well as C-reactive protein (CRP -Cardio) to look for inflammation and a urinalysis to check kidney function. As in all of our health screens, we include a Vitamin D. For more information please review Individual Labs.
Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure. This test MycoTOX screens for eleven different mycotoxins, from four species of mold, in one urine sample. It is the most comprehensive and competitively priced mycotoxin test available. Great Plains Lab uses the power of advanced mass spectrometry (MS/MS), which is necessary to detect lower levels of these fungal toxins.
