If you need blood tests to diagnose your particular metabolic disorder, and either you don’t have insurance or your doctor refuses to order them, you can get them yourself.
Without needing a doctor’s prescription (they’ll send you the results by email) you can use this discounted lab for a leptin resistance panel (that diagnoses thyroid and insulin resistance too!):
You MUST use this website address for the codes to work:
PPL14 is the code for the FULL Leptin Panel, which consists of all 6 tests below. You can do these by individual tests instead if you prefer. The cost for the panel is $223.00
Individual Test Codes:
Leptin ……………. 146712 ….. $73.75
Free T3 …………..10389 ……. $55.50
Free T4 …………..1974 ……. $36.00
Reverse T3 Serum ….. 070104 ……. $63.50
Fasting Insulin …..4333 ……. $19.00
Ferritin ………….. 4598 ……. $33.35
In addition to these, you can use another discount code: lr2010 = 2% off
This is for any test you might want to order NOT listed above. For example, if you haven’t had them recently (or at all), you should get a Fasting Glucose, A1c and Vitamin D test as well — though your doctor should certainly be willing to order these. Ditto for a regular lipid panel and, if you suspect you might have Hashimoto’s (an immune disorder variant of hypothyroidism) you should order the test for that as well.
There will be an additional $9.50 processing fee when you check out. That’s added once to your cart whether you order the full panel or individual tests. You’ll see it when you check out.
If there are others to whom you wish to give these codes, please remind them that for codes to work they must go to the website: http://leptinresistance.ineedlabs.com
