Look good, feel good, but are you really good (healthy)?
We live in a society where people tend to assume that health and well-being are based on how you look. Is she skinny? How big are his muscles? We focus too much on the scale and the weight of a person. As we approach summer in the northern hemisphere and everyone is donning their favorite bathing suit, you’ll have to ask yourself, “I may look good, I may feel good, but am I really good ?” When we say “really good”, we are talking about this internal mirror that allows you to understand your health.
If there’s one thing the past two years have shown us, our health means everything. As we try to protect ourselves and our loved ones, our routine preventative care that monitors our health and detects serious illnesses early has been put on hold. 1 in 5 adults have postponed healthcare during the pandemic. When was the last time you checked in to your cholesterol? What about your risk of Diabetes? How about your metabolism which helps turn what you eat into fuel to support vital functions, including heart rate, brain function and breathing?
While we always encourage people to see their primary care physician, we realize that people want options when it comes to their health and wellness journey. Recently, Labcorp, a leading life sciences company, launched Labcorp on demanda digital experience that lets you shop for popular diagnostic tests to help answer common health questions without having to see a doctor.
How does Labcorp OnDemand work?
After choosing the desired test on Labcorp OnDemand, you can pay with a credit card or use your HSA or FSA. The majority of tests require you to visit one of approximately 2,000 Labcorp locations, including more than 350 Labcorp in Walgreens stores, for sample collection. Appointments and appointments are accepted.
You will be notified to access your easy-to-read results online in your secure and private Labcorp OnDemand account. There are ranges and color schemes for each test to clearly understand your results.
If your results require immediate attention, a network of independent doctors will contact you by telephone or registered letter. You can also upload a copy of your results, making it very easy to share them with a doctor or healthcare professional.
