Critical Blood Tests
Personal Health Analysis can provide a summary analysis of your health issues. A more detailed analysis can be obtained if you provide certain critical blood tests.
You will typically take the Personal Health Analysis without complete knowledge of your blood parameters. Based on the analysis of your answers to the questionnaire a blood test will be prescribed for you if you wish to take it to get a more detailed Personal Health Analysis and Treatments Report. You can then assess your report and add the results of your blood test to get the more definitive Report.
When you complete the questionnaire you will automatically be given instructions to follow to get your blood test.
There are some blood tests that are not frequently prescribed by many doctors but that we feel are critical for pre-diagnostic purposes. Our purposes are to insure that we detect potential problems and health issues early enough for you to initiate effective treatment.
CRP Blood Test
One very important blood parameter is C reactive protein (CRP) obtained in a blood test which indicates if inflammation is a problem for you. CRP is the best predictor of a heart attack. It is even more predictive than your cholesterol level, blood pressure or your family history.
Inflammation plays a key role in diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and some forms of cancer and many other conditions.
Abnormal CRP measurements can indicate that you have:
- Inflammatory Conditions
- Insulin Resistance
- Overweight and obesity (causes inflammation)
- Chronic Allergies (causes inflammation)
CRP measurements can help identify the cause and source of inflammation in your body. It can help identify health problems before you even notice symptoms; early enough to effectively treat most common diseases while they are still treatable.
A1C Blood Test
An A1C (glycated hemoglobin or HbA1c) blood test gives you a picture of your average blood glucose level for the past 2 to 3 months. The results indicate your risk for diabetes and/or how well your diabetes treatment is working.
Hemoglobin inside red blood cells carries oxygen from the lungs to all the cells of the body. Hemoglobin, like all proteins, links up with sugars such as glucose. Diabetes is a condition where you have too much sugar in your bloodstream. This extra glucose enters your red blood cells and links up (or glycates) with molecules of hemoglobin. The more excess glucose in your blood, the more hemoglobin gets glycated. It is possible to measure the percentage of A1C in the blood. The result is an overview of your average blood glucose control for the past 2 to 3 months.
The amount of A1C in your blood reflects blood sugar levels for the past 120 days which is the typical lifespan of a red blood cell. For someone with diabetes and high blood glucose levels, the A1C level is higher than normal. If you have diabetes risks, you should have your A1C level measured at least twice a year.
All of the blood tests that you may need will be prescribed by your doctor or by one of our doctors if you choose when you take the Analysis.
