Submission Options:

Option 1: Authorize Grassroots Labs to send your results on your behalf directly to Medi-Share’s Health and Wellness Department. Live Chat on their website, email, or call their support desk for a link to their Release of Information form. This step is optional but more convenient for you. If you prefer, we will accept official results directly from you.
*Note: To forward your results directly to Medi-Share, these lab services require a HIPAA release form. Some vendors may charge for this service.

Option 2: If you didn't authorize Grassroots Labs to send your results directly to Medi-Share, they will send you an email when the results are posted. Please send your results to health@mychristiancare.org or fax to (321) 308-7775.

Lab draw tips:

  • Fast between 10-14 hours, 12 hours is ideal. (A prolonged fast can raise cholesterol levels)
  • Stay well hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water per day for 72 hours before testing.
  • Some medications and supplements can affect your results. Please list all your meds.
  • Be well rested and stay calm. Undue anxiety and nervousness can affect blood pressure and some lab values.
  • Blood drawn from a vein is more reliable than a finger stick. Finger stick samples may need to be repeated, especially if the finger was squeezed or milked to get the blood drop.
  • Laboratories often discount a combined lipid and HbA1c test.

*Laboratory testing is not a treatment but a tool to aid in the detection of illness and disease. Your test results should show a range for normal readings. It is possible that results outside of the normal range may indicate a false positive or may be normal for you. If your results do fall outside of the normal range it is important that you consult with your doctor. It is also a good idea to share your results with your doctor even if they are in the normal range.
