I've been wanting to get my cholesterol/triglycerides checked out since I've been on this new way of eating for 3 months now and have been waiting for Walgreens to get their machine working. It's been 3 weeks. So yesterday I read about a place called DirectLabs where you can order medical tests for yourself online and then take the order to a LabCorp. I checked it out and the nearest LabCorp is only 20 miles away. They have a locator on the site and it will even give you driving directions - pretty cool.

The lipid panel test was $29, Walgreens was $35, plus before checking out I checked retailmenot and they had a coupon code to take $3 off. So $26 for the test.
They also have a deal where you can set up your appt online, so now I have an sppt for Fri morning at 9 am to get the test done. It takes 8 - 10 days to get the results.

I'd like to get my thyroid tested sometime too, that was $100 something. I have a high deductible on my insurance and this is a lot cheaper than going to a dr and paying for an appt to get a prescription to get the labwork and then going back to the dr for the results. There are lots of websites that help you interpret the results. If it's bad I can set up a dr appt then.

I got a $10 gift card to Walmart in the mail yesterday from MyPoints along with 4 books I ordered from Amazon and a $7 coupon to NatureMade.

On our walk this morning mom and I saw a daddy deer, a mommy deer and 2 baby deers. Very cute.

I finished reading my book Crazy Wild by Tara Janzen. Romance - very good.

    I've used PrePaidLab.com. Sometimes, my doctor is very stubborn about listening to my concerns. I was glad to have a place to go that didn't need his permission. I didn't have a coupon code, but I'll use retailmenot if I need to do that again. Thanks.
