Add a COVID-19 Antibody Test to Your Annual Exam
One of the first steps to going back to a normal and active lifestyle is knowing whether you have been exposed, resulting in potential immunity to the virus. As the summer begins, you want to reunite with friends and family, return to the workplace, and engage in social activities with the peace of mind you deserve.
For a limited time, we are offering a COVID-19 antibody test when you book an annual exam or schedule a lab visit. This simple, yet accurate, blood test detects antibodies that suggest you may have immunity to the virus. Call us today at (866) 806-8235 to schedule an antibody test with your annual exam or lab visit to address your overall health and confidently start returning to normal.
For your convenience, our team now offers advanced antibody testing during your other visits to streamline the process and help determine if you have already been exposed to and recovered from COVID-19. Our test is simple, practical, and affordable to help you learn if your body has developed antibodies in response to the virus.
Antibody tests also include a complimentary vitamin B-12 injection to thank you for taking the test to learn if you have been exposed and taking an active part in helping stop the spread of coronavirus. B-12 injections may help support your immune system and enhance your overall wellness and energy levels.
Antibodies and Your Immunity
While studies are ongoing, research suggests that coronavirus antibodies may provide some level of immunity. With most viruses, once you have been infected, your immune system starts developing antibodies to fight the infection and prevent reinfection. Once these antibodies are in your system, many scientists believe you will have some level of immunity from the virus for some period of time, though more is learned about this novel coronavirus everyday.
Who is Eligible for this Test?
Qualified patients can add our antibody test to their annual wellness exam or lab appointment if they have previously had symptoms and have not had symptoms for three weeks or longer.
Some common symptoms include:
- Shortness of breath
- Sore throat
- Muscle Pain
- New loss of taste or smell
- Gastrointestinal symptoms:
If you have previously experienced these symptoms and have since recovered, you may be eligible for our antibody test during your annual exam or lab visit.
If you are currently experiencing symptoms, please visit a primary care provider, urgent care, local health department, or a hospital ER for testing for an active infection.
Accurate Antibody Testing
Our test, using Abbott Labs’ advanced antibody testing methods, is a simple blood draw that is over 99.9% accurate at correctly detecting COVID-19 antibodies 17 or more days after symptoms began. The test we are using, the Abbott SARS-CoV-2 IgG assay, is FDA Authorized and provides higher accuracy than finger-prick antibody tests.
Antibodies help your body fight infection. When you’re exposed to infection, the human body normally develops antibodies as an immune response. Our antibody test determines if your blood has developed antibodies in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus.
FDA-Authorized Antibody Test
Our team at Low T Center uses an FDA-authorized antibody test. The test meets the strict guidelines for detecting COVID-19 antibodies required under the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization. This authorization makes this test available to use during this public health emergency based on clinical trials and scientific research that measure the safety and validity of the test.
There are currently no FDA-approved or FDA-cleared COVID-19 antibody tests, as none have undergone the stringent review protocols and totality of evidence required by the FDA for approval or clearance.
