Well as someone joking said in the thread on how to get cheap blood tests “move to canada”, so I did just this. Imagine my disappointment to learn that the general GP cannot order bloodwork for vitamins or minerals except B12, Ca, and Mg. Not even Vit D. Apparently you have to be referred to specialists to get anything else.
Also, the labs that do the tests can’t just sell you the tests you want if you pay for them yourself. You still need a doctors request and the cost is much higher than the states I think. This only because they told me it was 65$ for a vitamin D test, each vitamin or mineral would be a separate charge. The directlabs mentioned above seems to do quite a bit more for just 87$.
So looks like I need to leave the land of free health care and drive back down to good old capitalistic US if I just want a nice broad preventive type screening.
I’m sure if I break my leg Canada will do fine, but any long term problems on Soylent with deficiencies will be a nightmare… End Rant
