Healthy people check in with their bodies.
Because the Internet has made it easy for people to become well-informed about their own health, the demand for consumer-initiated testing has increased.
To serve these consumers, InOut Labs makes these tests available directly to you, the patient.
InOut Labs provides convenient, confidential, reliable and affordable lab testing for consumers to take control of their healthcare costs and provide them access to their health information. All lab tests are performed by nationally recognized and CLIA Certified laboratories.
A survey of testing patients showed the following reasons for having testing done:
Customers of InOut Labs are encouraged to consult with their physicians about their results.

Individual Lab Test Panels
Weight loss, fatigue, or depression may be signs of a dysfunctional thyroid.
Low Testosterone Panel
1 in 4 American men over age 30 have low testosterone.
Symptoms of “Low T” include Decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction (ED), low sperm count and fertility, increased breast size and tenderness, reduced energy, symptoms similar to menopause in women (e.g., hot flashes, increased irritability, inability to concentrate, depression).
This panel measures your testosterone levels, as well as several factors that can cause Low T. This is a great way to get an idea if you have a problem and to perhaps rule out some potential causes. Panel includes:
- Testosterone, Free and Total
- FSH and LH
- CMP Comp. Metabolic Panel (14)
- CBC With Differential/Platelet
- Prostate-Specific Ag, Serum – PSA
- T4 and TSH
Testosterone, Total and Free
Many men with normal testosterone levels like to see if they can raise them naturally. This test measures both total and free “T.” Most doctors use the Total Testosterone level to diagnose Low T. But Free Testosterone is the “T” that’s available to your body. It’s best to test both.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder resulting from gluten sensitivity. Small intestine inflammation causes damage to the villi that line the intestinal wall resulting in a reduced ability to absorb food and nutrients, causing malnutrition.
Symptoms often include gastrointestinal pain and discomfort, chronic constipation and diarrhea, failure to thrive (in children), anemia, and fatigue.
When to get tested:
- Excess gas, bloating, and abdominal distension
- Family history of celiac disease
- Slow growth in children
- Chronic diarrhea
- Unexplained iron deficiency or anemia
- Deficiency of folate and vitamin B12
- Itchy skin blisters
- Recurrent and/or painful mouth sores
- Diseases associated with celiac disease: Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes, autoimmune thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, ulcerative colitis, and several others.
Take control of your health and address the possibility of having celiac disease. It affects approximately 1% of the population.
26 million Americans are affected by diabetes, and 90–95% of them have Type II diabetes. Type II diabetes is a disease in which your pancreas does not make enough insulin or use insulin at the proper levels. When glucose builds up in the body, cells are not able to properly function, leading to many complications.
Damage to the body: When insulin levels affect cells’ functionality there are many damaging consequences to your body, including permanent damage to the nerves and small blood vessels of the eyes, kidneys, and heart. It can also lead to atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries.
Diabetic coma: This occurs when the blood sugar levels in the body get too high and dehydration is imminent. Warning signs of a diabetic coma include increased thirst and urination, weakness, high fever, headache, visual problems, hallucinations, and paralysis.
Severe Dehydration: Excess sugar build up in the blood causes increased urination which, in turn, results in dehydration. Dehydration has countless effects on the body’s functionality and cell sustainability.
When to get tested:
If you are overweight (BMI 25 or over), have a family member with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and exercise fewer than three times a week, or any combination of these things, you need to get tested for type II diabetes.
Anyone older than age 45 should have an initial blood sugar screening. If the results are normal, check it every three years thereafter.
The Hemoglobin A1C test measures your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months.

Vitamin D deficiency is a global epidemic with an estimated one billion people below healthy levels. In fact, 64% of Americans do not have enough Vitamin D.
Vitamin D has been found to be a huge influence on normal body processes, and if your levels are too low, your body is not operating at optimal levels. If you don’t know your Vitamin D levels, you may be vulnerable to numerous health problems, including: Type II diabetes, cancer, infections, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, and neurological disease.
Vitamin D supplements are an easy solution, but they are fat-soluble, meaning you don’t want to take too much or it can be toxic. Monitoring your vitamin D level is easy, inexpensive, and can prevent diseases that could cost you your life.
