A COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH OVERVIEW
GO EVEN DEEPER
The NEXT|HEALTH Total Baseline is a next-level health overview. It includes the entire NEXT|HEALTH Baseline test (over 50 biomarkers to assess your overall health status, including inflammation, hormones, metabolism, immunity, and more) and goes even deeper with panels that measure things like thyroid health, heavy metal levels, and autoimmune markers.
The NEXT|HEALTH Total Baseline is a deep dive into your current state of health. It provides all the data you need to commence or track the progress of your health optimization journey.

THE NEXT|HEALTH TOTAL 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.
hsCRP & C-Reactive Protein:
hsCRP and C-Reactive Protein are markers of systemic inflammation, which has emerged as a powerful predictor of coronary heart disease and other diseases like cancer, autoimmune conditions and thyroid issues. Elevated hsCRP has also been associated with depression and impaired cognitive function in seemingly healthy people. Tracking inflammation markers is a useful tool in disease prevention.
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.
Heavy Metal Toxins Panel:
This metabolic panel and heavy metal toxin screen reveals any kidney or liver strain that may hinder healthy detoxification. Toxin accumulation can lead to inflammation, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular disease, hormone imbalances, and Alzheimer's disease.
This panel measures all thyroid-related biomarkers to diagnose Hashimoto's, iodine deficiency, and proactively reveal early signs of thyroid dysfunction. Suboptimal thyroid function is a common cause of fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, weakness, and depression.
Iron is critical for the production of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout your body. Low levels of iron indicate that your body is struggling to produce enough oxygen-carrying blood cells. Low iron can lead to anemia and symptoms like fatigue, frequent headaches, dizziness, pale complexion, and heart palpitations.
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:
This 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.
Hormones act as chemical messengers, delivering signals that regulate many important functions within the body. They control simple needs, like hunger signals, as well as more complex systems, like reproduction and mood. Hormonal imbalances can lead to symptoms like weight gain, fatigue, depression, and other serious conditions. Knowing your levels is the first step to optimizing your hormones, which can have a profound impact on your overall health and wellbeing.
This panel tests proBNP, lipoprotein (a), and hemoglobin A1C, important measures of heart function and cholesterol particle size. This provides an in-depth analysis of particle size in relation to the type of cholesterol tested.
This tests both rheumatoid factor (RF) and ANA. These biomarkers indicate if your body is producing antibodies and potentially attacking its own tissues.
PSA (men only):
This biomarker assesses risk of prostate cancer or prostatitis (an enlarged prostate).
