Don’t Let Your Wealth or Your Health Be Forgotten

Life just seems to pick up the pace when the cooler temperatures of fall arrive. School starts again and all the extracurricular happenings that go along with it! The holidays come around one after the other. It seems like no sooner are you taking down the Halloween decorations that you’re putting up the Christmas tree! It seems that as the days get shorter our to-do list gets longer. It’s easy for important things to slip between the cracks and the next thing you know, poof! You’ve forgotten all about them

Any Lab Test Now® would like to remind you about two of those important items that should move to the top of your priority list: your wealth and your health. And believe it or not, you can take care of them both at your local Any Lab Test Now.

Let’s Talk About Money

OK! So it’s bad manners to talk about money, but let’s get real! When it comes to many Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s), it’s “Use it or lose it!” When you’re trying to stretch every dollar, it’s hard to justify letting a couple hundred dollars (maybe more!) disappear, and that’s what happens when you don’t check your FSA account and use the money that’s in it before the end of the year. With a few exceptions, most FSA plans DO NOT allow you to roll over unused funds to the next year. So, what happens? One minute you’re carving a pumpkin, the next you’re trying to decide whether a sweater or a scarf would make a better Christmas gift for Grandma and all the while you’ve totally forgotten the cash balance on your FSA card.

Any Lab Test Now hasn’t forgotten, and it’s in the best interest of your health for you to remember as well! Here’s why.

Your Health is Your Priority

When it comes to your priorities list, your health should be pretty high on it! Any Lab Test Now can help you with our fast and convenient testing services. Our lab testing services are:

  • Convenient – just check here for a location that is near you.
  • Open – we have worker-friendly hours and are even open on Saturdays.
  • Easy – you don’t need an appointment. Just walk in!
  • Fast – most customers are in and out in 15 minutes or less.

And maybe most importantly, Any Lab Test Now accepts Flexible Spending Account cards.

Maybe you’ve put off your annual check-up lab work because you just haven’t had the time. Maybe you’re struggling with your weight and you’re not sure where to start. Whatever your health issues are, the experts at Any Lab Test Now can guide you in the right direction — the one that will provide you with the information you need to take control of your health!

Are you aware? It could save your life

Helping you take control of your health is what Any Lab Test Now® is all about. A big part of taking control is educating yourself and being aware of your health risks. That’s why Any Lab Test Now is proud to support efforts to make you aware of the latest in women’s health issues and proud to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Throughout the month of October you’ll see the pink ribbons that support breast cancer awareness. Awareness can be life saving! That’s because breast cancer is a cancer that most women can survive if it’s found and treated early. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of detecting breast cancer early.

Self-exams and mammograms can make a HUGE impact. Some fast facts about breast cancer from the Centers for Disease Control:

  • Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women.
  • More than 40,000 women die from the disease each year.
  • Men can develop breast cancer, but it is rare. Less than 1 percent of breast cancers occur in men.
  • Most breast cancers are found in women who are 50 years old or older, but breast cancer also affects younger women.

For women who have had the disease before, the need to be extra vigilant is vital. Any Lab Test Now offers a Breast Cancer Monitoring Panel that may be helpful for women who are:

  • Currently diagnosed with breast cancer
  • Are breast cancer survivors
  • Have a history of breast cancer

The Breast Cancer Monitoring Panel tests for levels of the proteins CA 15-3 and CA 27-29. Those proteins are both normally produced by breast cells, but in women with breast cancer, the levels can increase. The panel also includes a CEA Test, which is another type of protein that will show increased levels in people with cancer. What the Breast Cancer Monitoring Panel does NOT do is tell you if you have breast cancer. It can be a helpful tool for women and their physicians as they move forward with treatment and therapy.

One of the biggest things you can do to ensure your continued good health is to have an overall picture of your health. That’s where the Comprehensive Female Panel can help. This panel is actually 11 tests in one. It will provide you and your doctor with a thorough overview of your health with information including your blood counts, kidney and liver functions, electrolytes, female hormones, thyroid, heart health, and nutritional status. It’s cost effective and provides you with information you need to monitor your health.

Any Lab Test Now is a convenient and affordable way to take control of your health. Being aware and educating yourself is another. Take the time this October to consider your own breast health — and remind a bosom buddy to do the same.
