Today, I wanted to briefly discuss how diet can positively impact health. It should serve as a fitting conclusion to a series over the past few months on this Manufacturing Peace of Mind™ blog where we’ve covered a broad range of health-related topics from fat and the keto diet to heart disease and the search for unbiased healthcare advice.
Last week, I enumerated my concerns about direct access testing and this week, I’ll explain why my optimism outweighs those concerns. Quick refresh: Direct access testing allows consumers to order their own blood tests without seeing a doctor first. Despite some potentially negative consequences I am excited that Arizona recently passed a law allowing us this access.
Thanks to a law that recently went into effect in Arizona, citizens of our great state are finally able to order their own blood tests without seeing a doctor first. So-called “direct access testing” allows patients to take an active role in their own health care and save them money on doctor’s visits.
I happen to think it’s a great idea, however, there are potentially negative consequences to consider before ordering your own test.
