#BloodTestingDrive Sign Up for Low Carb Houston

At the upcoming conference, Low Carb Houston, on October 24-26th we’ll be hosting a blood testing drive where anyone can get their blood taken right there on site for a comprehensive set of tests:

  • C-Peptide
  • CBC With Differential/Platelet
  • Comp. Metabolic Panel (14)
  • Fatty Acids, Free (Nonesterified)
  • Ferritin, Serum
  • GGT
  • Glucagon
  • Hemoglobin A1c
  • High sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP)
  • Insulin
  • Lipoprotein (a)
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR)

We’ve managed to negotiate a bulk rate price of $297 per person and the results will be analyzed at Labcorp to be returned in one to two weeks from the blood draw.

Consider Helping Us Grow the Data Pool

While we are excited to provide these services for those who can’t easily get these tests done, a major motivator for this drive is getting more data for the benefit of the community, which is why you are given the option to provide your anonymized results to our pool, which we hope you’ll take. If you follow my work, you know how important I consider open source data for the advancement of science (this is especially important for the LC community). But, again, it’s your option either way and we appreciate the consideration.

I signed up for the blood draw – question though – do I have to sign up and attend the conference in order to do the blood work? Thanks

Siobhan Huggins

Yes, the blood draw is actually onsite at the conference!


This is wonderful. It’s nice to see a list of recommended tests for those of us interested in digging into the the finer points. I can’t attend but I’m guessing that these are available through LabCorp also (?). Would you please consider making a post with a list each of basic tests, intermediate tests, and super dork tests? And maybe a blurb about each test and it’s potential usefullness. One final question – what would be a approximate non-bulk rate of getting this full battery run? Thanks!

Siobhan Huggins

What you’re already asking for already exists via this post! All are available through labcorp. 🙂

Beautiful. Thanks much for the great info. I use direct labs and order my tests when they have frequent 20%-off specials.
