" My doctor said my bloodwork was great! But, why didn't I feel great?"
THE N|H BASELINE INCLUDES:
CBC (Complete Blood Count):
CBC levels provide insight into overall health and can detect a wide range of disorders or infection, including leukemia, anemia, and blood clotting.
High-Sensitivity CRP (hsCRP):
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a marker of systemic inflammation, which has emerged as a powerful predictor of coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. Elevated hsCRP has been associated with depression and impaired cognitive function in seemingly healthy people.
Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) reveals your average blood sugar levels over the last 2-3 months. This is an important marker to evaluate diabetes risk, heart function, and cholesterol particle size.
Lipids include fats and fat-like substances that the body stores as a source of energy for future use. They include triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and total cholesterol. Lipids are an important measure of cardiovascular and hormonal health.
Known as the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is produced by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. It also occurs naturally in a few foods, including some types of fish, fish liver oils, egg yolks, and is added to fortified dairy and grain products. If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or follow a vegan diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency.
B12 is an energy powerhouse. It plays a key role in DNA, nerve, and blood cell production and is crucial for healthy brain function, metabolism, and immune health. This essential vitamin plays a major role in regulating your mood, energy levels, heart health, memory, digestion, and skin health.
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel:
The CMP provides important information about the current state of your metabolism, including kidney and liver function, as well as electrolytes, acid/base balance, blood glucose, and blood proteins. These markers are also used to monitor known conditions like hypertension, as well as to monitor medications that may have kidney or liver-related side effects.
