The future, past and present collide as methods of testing for disease culminate together to give us amazing ways to look after our health. From evaluations of urine on tablets inscribed by Ancient Babylonians and Sumerian physicians to apps and plug ins for our smartphones today, tests have come a long way in 6000 years baby! We’ve travelled far in to a new era of health from centuries ago.

We now have many methods of testing for disease, monitoring our health and testing for toxins as well as showing our DNA. Different methods now include testing via the blood, urine, skin, stool, biometric tests, and fitness. Tests can be done in the clinic, online and are more and more available at home. The list is ever increasing with advances in science and research. Bacteria and compounds showing ill health conditions can be discovered easily through various forms of testing. Because some tests are no longer required to be performed in laboratories, hospitals or clinics, patients have a way of being more responsible for their own health and receiving information much faster than they have in the past.

Some people have an aversion to needles or have trouble urinating on demand!

This also allows diseases to be tested by more people, decreasing the spread of disease and providing earlier treatment for many health conditions. As new developments continue in science and research, we will see more of these testing methods becoming easily attainable by the everyday Joe. Various testing methods and some of the conditions they test for are:

  • Urine: Fertility, Drug use, Diabetes, STDs, Cholesterol, Prostate cancer (PSA), Candida, pH, UTI
  • Blood: Fertility, Drug use, Diabetes, Toxins, STDs, Cholesterol, Prostate cancer (PSA), Candida, pH, UTI, DNA
  • Saliva: Fertility, Diabetes, STDs, Cholesterol, Prostate cancer, Candida, pH, UTI, DNA
  • Stool: Food allergy, food intolerance, gut health, bowel cancer
  • Breath: Alcohol, ketones
  • Hair follicle: Drugs, Toxins, DNA Skin Test; Allergies, skin conditions
  • Fitness Test: Lung function, heart function
  • Biometric Test: Full health screening
  • Online test: Neurological.

Various tests are available not only in clinics but are widely available online and in your own home.

Some people have an aversion to needles or have trouble urinating on demand! With a lot of tests now there are many different ways to test, diagnose and obtain a result that may cause you less discomfort. Saliva tests are the new frontier along with wearable technology and nanotechnology. A simple swab test in the cheek is becoming more widely available for tests that used to have to be taken via a blood sample or a urine sample. These tests are also relieving the discomfort of having a diagnostic test for children.

These varied tests are also becoming more economically viable which is only better for both patient and the health profession. This also aids people in lower socio-economic environments and in third world countries to have greater access to medical testing facilities and diagnostics. Nothing can replace the doctor for treatment but together with easily accessible tests, better communication and greater patient satisfaction is the ultimate outcome.
