i have no idea about life extension, sorry
here in canada, there is provincial coverage, and in this province, if you want anything done that isn't covered, you go to a naturopathic doctor or anyone that can write a lab requisition, and pay them to write it for you, and then you pay the lab to run the test.
not sure how it goes in colorado.. sorry
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
