Blood Work for Weight Loss, Hormone Optimization & Disease Prevention
Knowing your blood markers is a powerful diagnostic tool which helps your physician establish baselines, identify the cause of a disease or disorder you may have, but more importantly it can help you learn how to prevent diseases from occurring. Blood test results can also be utilized to create effective weight loss programs and help to restore youthful hormone levels.
A comprehensive hormone panel for males and females will assess deficits and/or imbalances that can have significant impact on one’s health and quality of life. Thyroid as well as male and female reproductive hormones are assessed. Establishing baselines or knowing hormonal imbalances can put a person’s mind at ease knowing they may just be a going through a normal stage in life, rather than having a disease. Proactive treatment plans in regard to aging can then be discussed.
Various genetic markers will be assessed that can determine your risk of heart disease, blood clotting and stroke. Knowing such can prompt motivation and diligence toward a lifestyle that greatly reduces/eliminates one’s genetic predisposition. Traditional lipid profiling is an OK start but many times falls way short on its own in accurately assessing your cardiovascular and related diseases risk. Advanced testing will further assess the type and particle characteristics of your good and bad cholesterol, which has been shown to be significantly more valuable than traditional lipid lab values at assessing risk.
Inflammation drives heart disease and most related diseases. Specific markers of inflammation and oxidation, not routinely tested, will assess the ‘drivers’ of disease-hidden inflammation. Advanced and extensive biomarkers are tested for problems with blood sugar regulation, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and other metabolic dysfunctions. Routine testing is also done for blood count, liver, kidney and electrolyte status. Various vitamin and Essential fatty acids (Omega oils) assessment reveals deficiencies, insufficiencies and effectiveness of vitamin/supplement therapies.
