It’s rare that you need super-expensive in-depth panels, unless you’re experiencing some seriously weird symptoms and a basic panel has already been done. It definitely got me thinking about my overall health, and if you have a physical coming up, I highly recommend reading this so you can ask your doctor about checking some of these markers (if he or she isn’t already).
