Total Cholesterol: Basic cholesterol reading represents the total amount of Cholesterol circulating in your blood at the time of the test.
Lipid Profile: A complete Cholesterol screening that gives you your total number and both the good (HDL) and bad (LDL) levels along with Triglycerides and risk/ratio assessment. A Cholesterol test can help determine your risk of atheroscleorosis, the buildup of plaque in your arteries that can lead to narrowed or blocked arteries throughout your body. High Cholesterol levels are a significant risk factor for heart disease.
Glucose: Used to determine the blood sugar level. It’s a great way to see if you might be at risk for diabetes.
Hemoglobin A1c: Reflects your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months. Specifically, the A1C test measures what percentage of your hemoglobin (a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen) is coated with sugar (glycated). The higher your A1C level, the poorer your blood sugar control.
Body Composition: The body’s relative amount of fat to fat-free mass. Those with optimal body composition are typically healthier, move more easily and efficiently, and in general, feel better than those with less-than-ideal body composition. Achieving a more optimal body composition goes a long way toward improving your quality of life and overall wellness.
Hemoglobin: Measures the amount of hemoglobin in your blood. Lower than normal hemoglobin can mean you have a low red blood cell count (anemia). Anemia can have many different causes, including vitamin deficiencies, bleedings and chronic diseases.
pH Balance: Testing your pH is important because if your are overly acidic, you may have low energy, find it difficult to lose weights, experience poor digestion, suffer from aches and pain, and even fall victim to more serious disorders.
H.pylori: H.pylori infection occurs when a type of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) infects your stomach, usually during childhood. A common cause of peptic ulcers, H.pylori infection is present in about half the people in the world.
Thyroid: Tests for hypothyroidism. Women, especially those older than age 50, are more likely to have hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism upsets the normal balance of chemical reactions in your body. Untreated hypothyroidism can cause a number of health problems, such as obesity, joint pain, infertility and heart disease.
