Each Choose Health kit comprises of an at home lab test and tape measure.
The lab test measures and is used as a screening tool for total cholesterol(total cholesterol:HDL), inflammation(hsCRP), oxidative stress(GGT), insulin resistance(triglycerides:HDL), average blood sugar(hbA1C) and visceral fat(waist to height ratio).
The at home finger prick test takes less than 10 minutes and the dried blood sample is sent directly back to a CAP accredited lab for analysis. Results can be expected back directly to a mobile device in 5-7 days. The testing and tracking experience is interactive and fully mobile. Individual test results are mapped to clinical endpoints for diet, exercise and other lifestyle interventions such as drinking and smoking to educate and empower change.
The test was compiled by three functional physicians with the goal of creating the most cost effective and efficient way to get a snapshop of internal health. The markers were chosen as effective screening markers for long term health and disease prevention and as markers that could be positivel or negatively impacted by lifestlye factors and interventions. The test kit can either be ordered to be collected from a clinic or ordered direcly to the home of the end user.
Our mission at Choose Health is to provide health literacy and preventative services to a mass audience at an affordable price.
