Today's health care issues often require patients to be far more proactive than they have been in the past. This is particularly true for individuals whose lifestyles may put them at higher risk for contracting STDs than members of the general public. Health Testing Centers empowers these individuals as well as individuals without medical insurance to take control over their own health care decisions. We work with many different types of clients including those who only need one time testing and those with a chronic health condition that may require regular testing and monitoring.
Health Testing Centers offers patients across the U.S. a safe, convenient and cost-effective means of STD testing that keeps the results of diagnostic tests confidential and enables them to choose the treatment option that's right for their needs.
Nationally, the number of new STDs continues to grows to nearly 19 million infected, primarily between the ages of 15 and 24. The scope of this public health problem makes it important to know the facts about STDs in cities like Houston, TX. Chlamydia is spreading like wildfire in Houston, as well as TX and throughout the United States. Symptoms are either nonexistent or very mild for most Chlamydia sufferers, but the damage can be great. Each year, an estimated 30,000 women become infertile. Herpes is another STD that afflicts Houston. HSV-2, the common genital variety, is a life long infection, affecting as many as 21 percent of women in the country and 8 percent of men. Hepatitis A, B, and C as well as HIV-AIDS have been reduced dramatically in Houston, TX but there are new cases reported each year. While the percentage of those in the entire population with these diseases is small, they have remained stubbornly entrenched in recent years.
