Amy is a visual learner. She likes her data in graphs, her information visually represented, and her progress seen rather than spoken. This 26-year-old wife and health nut keeps her own blog about her adventures with her husband, dancing in the kitchen, and that constant battle to lead a sustainable lifestyle in an unhealthy world.
Amy is one of the many new members who has benefitted from our new Annual Checkup. She was so ecstatic about her experience that she wrote a thorough review, shared her biomarkers, and looked towards the future. You can read about her full results here.
A Seamless Process
After signing up for Annual Checkup, Amy scheduled her blood draw at a local LabCorp. She was in and out in 10 minutes! Amazingly, she received an email the very next morning informing her that her results were in and ready for viewing.
Here is what she saw:
- Even though her cholesterol numbers are sparkling clean, she used them as a learning opportunity. Having the data on such an intuitive platform opened her eyes about how complex cholesterol can be:
- Before WellnessFX, Amy had never seen the term vLDL-C, which stands for very low density lipoprotein. She loved the readily available definitions:
- Amy’s thyroid and metabolic numbers looked good, but one of her blood count markers displayed the dreaded red!
- Her mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (a measure of the concentration of hemoglobin in the blood) was just a tad low (31.6g/dL versus the recommended 32). The small deviation isn’t cause for concern but Amy wants to eliminate problems before they have a chance to exist. She’s recently started taking a high-quality, low-dose iron supplement every day to get rid of the red.
A Long-Term Relationship
Amy loves options. The unprecedented opportunity to have her blood tested and analyzed for free drew her in, but WellnessFX’s customizability and charm sealed the deal. She plans to update to Baseline in six months to begin tracking her progress. She is excited about being able to choose her own physician or dietitian to talk about her data and being able to have her health in the palm of her hand. It is her health, after all.
“I can honestly say that I have loved every step of the WellnessFX program. They are more than helpful if you are curious about where your health stands or if you want more information than a general doctor visit offers you. They are quick with results and their website is beautiful and very easy to navigate. I highly recommend them to everyone!”
