Request A Test makes it easy to get the affordable lab testing you need whenever you need it.
Taking time to get preventative lab tests can go a long way towards avoiding serious health problems. While there are many types of testing available, there are a handful of tests that are generally recommended for all men to have done periodically. One of the largest health concerns for men in the United States is heart disease. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in this country accounting for 1 in every 4 male deaths. High cholesterol is one of the major contributing factors to heart disease. A basic lipid panel provides measurements for total cholesterol as well as HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol. The CDC has estimated that between 70-89% of sudden cardiac events occur in men. Another popular heart health test, the C-Reactive Protein (CRP) High Sensitivity test can be used to measure a person’s risk for cardiac events like a heart attack or stroke. Another major health concern for men is cancer, with Prostate Cancer being one of the most common forms to develop in American men. About 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer during their lifetime. A Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is often ordered as a screening for Prostate Cancer. Diabetes is a health concern which affects nearly 12% of men age 20 or older. Tests such as the Hemoglobin A1C and Blood Glucose can assess risk for or help manage diabetes. It is also a good idea for men to check their testosterone levels with a test such as the total testosterone or free testosterone. Maintaining a healthy testosterone level can help avoid a number of health complications.
"Taking care of your health is the best gift you can give yourself and your loved ones," says Noelle Perez, founder and president of Request A Test. "We hope this savings opportunity gives men everywhere a reminder to put extra focus on taking care of themselves."
