You may be at high risk for a deadly disease without knowing it. And in this case, what you don't know can kill you. This important book can help save your life. For the first time, two doctors inform us about lifesaving medical tests that can diagnose deadly diseases--including various cancers, heart disease, aneurysm, and stroke--at their earliest stages when they're most likely to respond to treatment. Some of these tests are so new that your doctor may not know they exist!

This book will help you construct your Personal Risk Profile-based on your age, gender, ethnicity, family medical history, and environmental hazards. You'll then use this profile to determine exactly which medical tests to take-and you'll learn how taking these tests can rescue you from an avoidable, premature death.

Dedicated to improving the quality of care available to all patients, Drs. Johnson and Sandmire guide you through each of these tests, explaining the process, cost, reliability, and potential health risks in language that you can understand. They also offer strategies for persuading your doctor to order the tests and convincing your insurance company to foot the bill. And if your insurer won't pay, they'll let you know where to go to get the tests for a reasonable price.
