Knowing your blood levels of CoQ10 is helpful in determining whether you need to take a CoQ10 supplement as well as if you’re absorbing adequate amounts from your supplement routine. Fortunately there is an affordable and easy way to test your CoQ10 levels.
The sample is then shipped to an independent lab from Life Extension and tested for CoQ10 levels.
The results are sent to Life Extension who then informs you of the test results.
Life Extension will tell you if your CoQ10 levels are normal or below normal and allows access to an on site medical doctor who will discuss the results with you.
What is the Cost of the Test?
The test from Life Extension is $145 for members and $195 for non-members.
Then there is the cost of the clinic that takes the blood sample.
Whether this is covered by your health insurance probably depends on a number of factors such as if recovering from a heart attack, on statins and if your doctor orders the test and on your health insurance policy.
What if My CoQ10 Values are Low?
If your values are below normal then the best course of remediation is through CoQ10 supplementation.
CoQ10 is virtually non-toxic and has been given in large doses to human subjects with no ill effects.
