At-home health tests are handy tools that put patients in control of their own health. There are multiple benefits to at-home health test kits: they’re convenient, affordable, and reliable. Here are a few key benefits of using home tests to check for certain conditions.


Are you worried about your health but don't want to drive all the way to your local doctor's office to get checked out? What if we told you that you might not have to? Nowadays, you can test for many health conditions, including celiac disease and thyroid disease, from the comfort of your home.

At-home health test kits aren't foolproof, and you may need additional tests to confirm a diagnosis and get the necessary treatment. Still, they're great for pre-screening certain conditions and gaining a better understanding of your health so you can feel confident and informed when discussing your concerns with your doctor.

Not sure if an at-home health testing is right for you? Here are some of the benefits of at-home health test kits to consider.


When you add up the numbers, at-home health tests are more affordable than testing at a doctor's office, especially if you don't have medical insurance. You need to pay for the gas to get to the office and back home, the doctor's fee, and the lab fee for an in-office test. For an at-home test kit, it's only the cost of the kit. It includes FREE shipping, doctor's prescription, and a prepaid return envelope to mail the sample to a CLIA-certified lab.


Another benefit of at-home health test kits is they’re remarkably easy to use. Each kit comes with detailed instructions for collecting samples. If you’re confused, you can contact the company selling the kit for additional guidance. In most cases, it will only take a few minutes to collect your samples. Then, all you have to do is ship them off and wait patiently for your results by email.

Easily Accessible

At-home tests ship directly to your door, making them convenient if you live in a rural area, can't drive, or have a disability that complicates finding reliable transportation. No need to drive to your nearest doctor's office, hospital, or urgent care clinic—just place your order online and wait for your package to arrive.
