TOTAL BASELINE TEST INCLUDES
Complete Blood Count (CBC):
CBC levels are used to evaluate your overall health & detect a wide range of disorders or infection, including leukemia, anemia, and blood clotting.
hsCRP & C-Reactive Protein:
This test measures levels of hsCRP & C-Reactive Protein, two markers in the blood that indicate the presence of inflammation in the body. Systemic inflammation has emerged as a powerful predictor of coronary heart disease, among others. Some diseases that have been linked to elevated levels of inflammation are cancer, autoimmune conditions like lupus, thyroid issues, and inflammatory bowel disease. Elevated CRP has also been associated with depression and the loss of cognitive ability in seemingly healthy people. Tracking markers of inflammation can help prevent disease from progressing or even beginning to develop.
Lipids are fats and fatty substances used as sources of energy by your body. Lipids include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), & Total Cholesterol. Knowing your lipid levels is a great measure of cardiac protection, as well as whether you have levels conducive to adequate hormone production.
Heavy Metal Toxins Panel:
This panel measures toxins in the bloodstream and metabolic function (kidney function, liver function, fluid balance, and electrolyte levels). Heavy Metal Toxicity is attributed to the onset of several illnesses, chronic fatigue, and infections.
This panel tests all thyroid-related biomarkers. The thyroid regulates our metabolic rate and is associated with changes in body weight and energy levels. This test also tracks autoimmune antibodies, which can begin to occur years before a person’s thyroid results are out-of-range. Proactively checking the status of your thyroid can prevent your thyroid from slowing down.
Iron is incredibly important in the production of hemoglobin, or the substance in the red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout your body. Low levels of iron mean that your body is struggling to produce enough oxygen-carrying blood cells. Iron-deficiency anemia results from low iron levels and can lead to fatigue, frequent headaches and dizziness, pale complexion, and heart palpitations, among other symptoms.
If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or adhere to a vegan diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin being exposed to sunlight. It also occurs naturally in a few foods, including some fish, fish liver oils, egg yolks, and in fortified dairy and grain products.
B12 is a powerhouse for making DNA, nerve and blood cells, and is crucial for a healthy brain, metabolism, and immune system. It plays a major role in regulating your mood, energy levels, memory, heart health, skin, & digestion.
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel:
This panel gives your healthcare provider important information about the current status of your metabolism, including the health of your kidneys and liver, as well as electrolyte and acid/base balance and levels of blood glucose and blood proteins. Results are also used to monitor known conditions, such as hypertension, and to monitor the use of medications that can cause any kidney or liver-related side effects.
Hormones are special chemical messengers that are created in glands throughout your body. These messengers control most major functions that occur within your body, from simple needs like hunger signals to more complex systems like reproduction and mood. Having a clear understanding of the major hormones and what they do will help you take control of a large majority of your health.
This panel tests proBNP, Lipoprotein (a), & hemoglobin A1C, biomarkers that evaluate heart function and cholesterol particle size. This is an in-depth analysis of particle size in relation to the type of cholesterol tested.
This tests both rheumatoid factor (RF) and ANA. Higher levels of these can indicate that your body is producing antibodies and potentially attacking itself.
This level is measured in men to assess risk for prostate cancer or prostatitis (an enlarged prostate).
