Great news! We are pleased to announce that two new blood tests are offered at all Health Fairs.
Celiac Disease Test – Celiac disease is an immune-mediated disorder triggered by exposure to specific dietary proteins (glutens) in wheat, barley and rye. This test is offered elsewhere for $150 or more. Being a nonprofit, we are pleased to be able to make this test available to you for just $35.
Vitamin B12 Test – Vitamin B12 is part of the B complex of vitamins. Humans obtain vitamin B12 exclusively from animal dietary sources such as meat, eggs, and milk. This vitamin is necessary for normal red blood cell (RBC) formation and is important for nerve health. Deficiency in vitamin B12 can lead to macrocytic anemia and neurological abnormalities. We think our vegan/vegetarian clients and many others will be interested in this test. Labs usually charge around $100 or more for it. As a nonprofit, we are able to offer this test to you at an affordable price of $35.
With questions please call (907) 278-0234 in Anchorage/statewide, (907) 374-6853 in Fairbanks, and (907) 723-5100 in Juneau.
