Cmon man!, help me grow this list

Screening for latent tuberculosis.

Per the USA CDC, up to 13 million Americans have latent TB.

Everolimus and Sirolimus are associated with increased risk of active TB infections in transplant patients. Even a lower dosage may theoretically be enough to increase the odds of a latent infection becoming active somewhere in the body. Physicians may wish to consider treating latent TB with standard antibiotic protocols prior to prescribing rapamycin for life extension.


"Overall in this study, a 5-fold increase in the reports of tuberculosis among sirolimus 2.0% […] treatment groups. Source


Welcome, and interesting topic. I believe this about latent TB, I did a rotation in a TB clinic in Med School.

And, while not a blood test, may be covered by insurance:

Sorry, like supplements I am trying to reduce it to the necessary few that are really meaningful. Your list is just too burdensome imo.
