1. Blood Health Profile -Chemistry Panel, Lipid Panel and Complete Blood Count (CBC)
An excellent tool for determining general health. Includes full blood chemistry (glucose, kidney and liver function), a full lipid workup (cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides) and a blood count.
2. Hemoglobin (A1C)
This test measures average blood sugar levels for the past 3-months. This is not a screening for diabetes, but a useful monitor for persons who are under treatment for diabetes.
3. Lipoprotein (a)
Studies show that individuals with high lipoprotein (a) levels are prone to early heart disease. Lipoproteins are believed to contribute to the formation of blood clots.
4. PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen, Males Only)
This test in combination with a doctor’s digital rectal examination is useful in alerting men to the possible presence of prostate cancer and other prostate abnormalities.
5. Sensitive CRP (C-Reactive Protein)
This test measures CRP protein produced in liver and muscle cells within the coronary arteries. Elevated CRP indicates a higher incidence of inflammation which may increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and lupus.
6. TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
This test detects several thyroid gland disorders which may cause weight gain, depression, forgetfulness, fatigue, vision problems, enlarged thyroid glands, and other health problems.
7. Vitamin D
In recent years, Vitamin D has been recognized as a pro-hormone that has multiple roles in maintaining optimal health. This screening reflects Vitamin D produced cutaneously and that obtained from food and supplements. Deficiency can be associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension.
