Tests you can do yourself, things you should monitor yourself, what/how to interpret/use info from tests, etc.
Because you need to take charge of your own health care. And always get and keep copies of anything your doctor has done.
First of all, you can get quite a few things on Amazon. And some things at your drugstore. You can check your blood pressure at drugstores. And you should be monitoring your blood pressure.
I got this one in a newsletter today:
They have quite a few endocrine and nutrient tests available. Not an endorsement.
Also, a nurse practioner I've seen has everyone pee on this stick that tests urine for quite a few things. I don't recall what all, but recall her saying it only cost about $7. Different spots change color to indicate results for each test. So why can't these things be available for home use? To do every few months or so?
