Download The Healing Rosie Lab Tracker
You can download the Lab Tracker in several forms:
The lab tracker includes all the optimizing serum (blood) labs you’d request from your primary care doctor so you can get a fairly comprehensive picture of what’s going on in your whole body.
I recommend doing a full workup at least annually, and if you’re doing a lot of optimizing, you may want to do this twice a year.
I’m always optimizing my hormones, so I have smaller blood draws done an additional 2-3 times a year. If you’re just starting on the hormone optimizing route (thyroid or sex hormones), you may do labs even more frequently as you’re dialing things in.
If you’re optimizing thyroid / sex hormones, advocate for testing every 3-4 weeks so you can get your feet under you with optimization. It’s pretty common for doctors (even integrative / functional med ones) to suggest checking everying in 60-90 days …
This will stretch optimization out so it takes much longer for you to get things dialed in (which equals more unnecessary suffering).
