Catch Issues Early: Doctor-Recommended Tests for Runners
Over at MapMyRun.com, I talked with some amazing doctors about the best tests for runners and other athletes. And to be honest, I also talked a lot about what tests were kind of bull$hit. So it was a real eye-opener for me! For the most part, the tests we need the most as athletes are relatively standard. 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).
