Wellnessfx Vs. Insidetracker
I'm looking to get a comprehensive blood test to check up on all my essential biomarkers. So far it seems that there are three popular options: WellnessFX, InsideTracker, and Talking20. Talking20 isn't up and running yet, so I'm trying to decide between the first two.
WellnessFX is definitely much more comprehensive but costs $529 for the performance package. InsideTracker's performance package is $299 but much more limited. I'm trying to figure out if I'll be missing out on any essential biomarkers if I go the cheaper route. I figure I'll be much more likely to keep getting tested in the future (every 4 months ideally) if the price isn't too crazy.
If I go with InsideTracker, here is what I'd be missing compared to WellnessFX:
Total Iron Binding Capacity
Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEA)
IGF-1 (Growth Hormone surrogate)
And if I go with WellnessFX, here is what I'd be missing compared to InsideTracker:
I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to blood work and biomarkers, so I'm not sure which of these are actually essential to keep track of and take action on, and which are just to impress consumers with vasts amounts of data.
