Probably not the place to ask, but I will anyway.

Is there a Spreadsheet (or other format) that shows exactly what tests are included in each Blood Test/Panel, all at once? I'm trying to decide which Tests/Panels I want to get, but not duplicate too much between them.

If such a Spreadsheet exists, please point me to it. Otherwise, I'll build my own, but would hate to "re-invent the wheel", so to speak.

Thanks!

Joe.

Not that I know of.

Also, depending on what you are interested in doing there may be tests that LEF doesn't offer via their website that you would may want, eg Iodine, Manganese, etc. LEF call sell you any test LabCorp offers but you have to get ones not already listed on the website approved over the phone. Also, some of the panels LEF sells are not listed on the LabCorp site, they might be special discounted panels for high volume customers. If you are interested in vitamin/nutrient levels I would recommend starting with the SpectraCell MNT, it seems to be more reliable than serum tests in my experience, however it doesn't cover some things, eg Iodine, Iron, Molybdenum, Potassium.

Dear Joe:

There is no spread sheet such as you describe.  A description of each test including its individual components can be viewed by clicking the links from http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Blood-Tests/Blood-Tests.htm

Thanks DDye, that's where I've been researching thus far. My problem is that as I get older, my mental retention gets worse and worse, so I end up having to go back and reread things over and over. Maybe I should start taking some of the LEF Mental Enhancement products!  Smile

I believe that last year the Male Panel had Sex Hormone Binding Globulin but it is not listed this year.  Did it change or is it listed inaccurately?

While The Male Panel Blood Test does not include SHBG, the Male Comprehensive Hormone Panel does include it.  See http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/ItemLC100010/Male-Comprehensive-Hormone-Panel-Blood-Test.html
