The Blood Test Your Doctor Won’t Order…

Affiliate Disclosure

Articles, Self-Quantification

I get dozens of calls, podcast questions, and emails each week from people who ask things like…

“How can I optimize my health and longevity?”
 
“How can I live a long time and feel good doing it?”
 
“What supplements should I take for peak performance?”
 
“What should my ideal diet look like?”

Honestly, without any data about you, I have no idea.

This is because unless you know what your blood looks like under a microscope, there is no way for you to identify with 100% confidence what steps you should take to eat the right diet, to take the right supplements, to protect your health, to enhance your well-being, to perform at peak capacity, and perhaps most importantly, to live as long as possible with as high a quality of life as possible.

But sadly, most annual medical check-ups that the average physician orders are simply routine, old-school blood tests that don’t even test for the most important markers of disease risk, and that are simply designed to make sure you’re “not dying”. They aren’t designed to optimize longevity or to ensure your body is completely primed to perform at peak capacity. 

However, what most people don’t realize is that you can skip your physician and simply manage the entire process for getting your blood work done yourself.And if you want to test absolutely every little thing that affects your organs, your energy, your hormones, your health and your longevity, then you should definitely keep reading.

Working closely with WellnessFX, America’s top laboratory for concierge blood testing and online access to all your blood testing results, I’ve developed the”Greenfield Longevity Blood Testing Package”, which is the most complete blood testing package that money can buy.

    Hi. If I have these tests ordered by my physician, can I pay you to evaluate it or do you have recommended levels posted somewhere? Thank you.

    1. For sure! Just schedule a consult at BenGreenfieldFitness.com/coaching

  2. Keenan says:

    Does the Direct labs ION test have copper? It says essential elements, so I would assume.

    1. YES, it tests for all metals. Including copper. ;)

  3. Dan says:

    Hi Ben.

    I see that LP-PLA2 is mentioned in the above list however when I went to order from your store it is not mentioned in the list on the store. I also checked the test order form that WellnessFX produced for me to take to Quest and I don’t see it included.

    Has it been removed from your package or is it included in one of the other tests?

    Tsk

    Hi Ben,

    I have a question regarding Lipoprotein-associated Phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2).

    Last year my Lp-PLA2 reading was 147.4 nmol/min/ml, which is classed as low risk (range <151).

    I've just recently had my annual health test and Lp-PLA2 is now up to 171 and classed as medium risk (range 152 – 194)

    I am surprised at this as over the last year I have changed my diet to a more 'paleo-way' of eating and I have also been following an intermittent fasting pattern of eating; usually going 18 hours between my evening meal and the first meal of the following day. I have also started practising cold thermogenesis, daily cold showers and ice baths and use a cool fat burner vest.

    Obviously I'm concerned as to why Lp-PLA2 has increased. My blood pressure is still normal (118/66) and my full Lipid profile is also all within normal range, the only real change being an increase in LDL from 1.8 last year to 2.7mmol/L (standard range <3.0), which I can only assume is a result of me eating more full fat organic cheese, yogurt and eggs. Do you think this is the cause of the Lp-PLA2 increase, or is it something else I may be doing? Everything else is unchanged, training regime is pretty much the same; a combination of weight training workouts, High intensity interval workouts and steady state aerobic days. I don't smoke, drink little alcohol. I have actually lost 5kg of fat since last year. Should I be worried?

    Thanks in advance for any advice,

    Lee

    1. I should begin by clarifying the fact that I am *not* a physician and this is *not* to be interpreted as medical advice. Please talk to a licensed medical professional about all of this!

      When people switch to a Paleo diet, I find the biggest issue is too many inflammatory foods (dairy, meat, lard, etc.) in the absence of high vegetable intake. I'd down the meats and fats, up the plants, and retest. Do a more "plant-based-esque" diet with small amounts of organic meats and unrefined oils here and there.

      Anyways, for more, I'd be happy to help you via a personal one-on-one consult. Just go to https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/coaching. and then choose a 20 or 60 minute consult, whichever you'd prefer. I can schedule ASAP after you get that.

  5. Great And innovative article Ben ! And I am totally agree with you. Blood test(mainly CBC test) is necessary to be healthy at least once in a year. Because through blood test we can identify our unknown health related issues. So blood tests is really helpful for your health and your longevity.

    Hi
    I am Louis and i have some questions regarding the topics that are suggested in your post
    1) Where do I go to get my blood drawn?
    2) Will I receive an actual prescription for these blood tests?
    3) Are these tests covered by my insurance company?

    1. Hi Louis

      You have to take it to a lab to get your blood drawn, you won't receive a prescription for the tests but you can book a consult where someone will go through everything with you and will advise what you need. And finally, I'm not sure whether your insurance company covers the tests, it depends on your level of insurance!
