In spite of my grumpy expression, I enjoy monitoring health-related tests in an attempt to improve them. So I built this site to compile all the resources for doing your own testing. It's also meant to convey the idea that you don't need a doctor to get your own bloodwork, which was surprising to me starting out.

I post occasionally on the Facebook page or Twitter account as I bumble my way around the blood, microbiome, and gene testing world. If you click "like" or "follow", I will look slightly less grouchy for the day.
