Post COVID-19 Testing Panel
Post COVID-19 Testing Panel (Labcorp)
This package includes testing that can help identify or monitor health conditions that are experienced by some people who have had an infection with SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19. The majority of COVID illnesses resolve within 4 weeks. However, after recovering some people will continue to experience long-term health complications. These conditions are sometimes referred to as "Long COVID" or "Chronic COVID." In general, Long COVID is defined by symptoms that persist for more than 4-12 weeks from the initial infection. Post-COVID illness can affect different people in different ways. Some may develop symptoms that never entirely go away. Others may feel fully recovered and develop new or returning symptoms later. Some people may develop worsening symptoms associated with a pre-existing condition.
This package includes:
- C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Quantitative
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Free T4
- Urinalysis, Complete
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B12
Symptoms of post-COVID illness can include but are not limited to fatigue, shortness of breath, cough, chest pain, headache, cognitive impairment (brain fog), lightheadedness, insomnia, abdominal pain, diarrhea, mood changes, heart palpitations, loss of endurance, irregularity in menstrual cycles, and erectile dysfunction.
These tests are not intended to diagnose any specific conditions. Abnormal test results should be discussed with a person's primary care physician.
A more comprehensive, Expanded Post-COVID testing panel is also available.
Turnaround for these tests is typically 2-3 business days.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
8-12 hours of fasting is preferred prior to specimen collection.
For the urine specimen, a clean-catch midstream collection is recommended to minimize contamination and improve accuracy. See lab personnel for additional collection instructions.
It is recommended that someone taking Biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R) stop consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
