WORKING TOGETHER

Let’s get started! Find out about all the tools and services we provide patients, healthcare professionals and payers.

Simple Labs is a CLIA-certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments), full diagnostic clinical laboratory where tests are done on specimens to get information about the health of a patient for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. You get your blood drawn at the doctor’s office or at one of our Patient Service Centers and we take care of the rest.

We specialize in routine Clinical Microbiology, Clinical Biochemistry, and Hematology tests, processing over 15,000 tests daily. Our comprehensive test menu and services are tailored to support primary care and specialty physician offices, immediate care clinics, urgent care clinics, long-term healthcare facilities, community health centers, home health agencies, managed care plans and surgical centers.

It all starts with a Simple lab test.

THE 7 MOST IMPORTANT BLOOD TESTS FOR YOUR OVERALL HEALTH
Annual blood testing is crucial for the detection, diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc. By having the proper blood tests, you can catch critical changes in your body1.
1. LDLR
Lipids: These are the fats in your body. LDLR measures your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, both of which have an impact on the health of your heart.

2. CMP
Comprehensive metabolic panel: Not called comprehensive for nothing, CMP is a snapshot of your body’s chemical balance & metabolism. CMP measures the status of your kidneys, liver, electrolyte & fluid balance, and blood sugar level.

Results show blood levels of all sorts: albumin, BUN/blood urea nitrogen, calcium, carbon dioxide (bicarbonate), chloride, creatinine, glucose, potassium, sodium, total bilirubin, total protein, ALT / alanine aminotransferase, ALP / alkaline phosphatase, & AST / aspartate aminotransferase.

3. CBCD
Complete blood cell count: baseline numbers for cell count (oxygen-carrying red blood cells, infection-fighting white blood cells, and platelets). CBCD helps check for things like anemia, infection, the presence of blood cancers, and other potential health problems behind symptoms like fatigue, weakness, and bruising.

4. CRP
C-reactive protein: The test won’t tell you what’s causing an inflammation, but it’s an effective tracer of inflamed arteries, which could be a key tip-off the progression of many diseases, including coronary artery disease, infection, inflammatory arthritis, lupus, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

5. GLY
Hemoglobin A1C is used to diagnose and monitor type 1 & type 2 diabetes. GLY shows average blood sugar level; specifically measuring the percentage of your hemoglobin (the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen) that is coated with sugar.

6. Profile T
Profile Thyroid includes thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T3 and T4. These tests check the function of your thyroid and how well it’s producing hormones.

Results can help diagnose both hypothyroidism (which can cause symptoms like personality changes, weight gain, fatigue, cloudy memory, or hair loss) and hyperthyroidism (which can cause heart, bone and other problems such as anxiety, sleep problems, & weight loss).

7. VITADH
Vitamin D2 is becoming more critical for monitoring health & disease prevention. It’s especially useful if you have a family history of cancer, hypertension, schizophrenia, depression, migraines, epilepsy, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, autoimmune conditions (e.g., lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis), polycystic ovarian syndrome, types 1 or 2 diabetes mellitus, & osteoporosis.

AND ALL IT TAKES IS JUST ONE SIMPLE BLOOD DRAW.
1. US Department of Health and Human Services and the US Preventive Services Task Force recommend regular testing including cholesterol, diabetes, osteoporosis.
2. There are now over 30,000 articles featuring Vitamin D in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine.
