Our testing includes:

  • Hormone Levels 

Optimal levels of  free and total testosterone, estradiol, and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) are necessary to make progress professional and athletically not to mention maintain your personal relationships. If estradiol and testosterone are unbalanced a person may experience: fatigue, memory loss, loss of strength, trouble losing weight, strength loss, low libido, joint pain, difficult concentrating, among many other problems. Identifying and correcting imbalances is incredibly important in regaining and maintaining health and excelling physically.

  • Traditional Lipid Profile

This basic group of tests to determine risk for cardiovascular and related diseases is a good start but should always be combined with advanced testing to unveil a more accurate picture of total health.

  • Lipoprotein Particles

Lipoprotein particle size/number and Apolipoprotein concentrations reveal levels of good and bad cholesterol particles, which provide a far better predictor of risk than traditional lipid profiles alone.

  • Inflammation

Inflammatory processes are independent predictors of risk. Testing reveals the level of inflammation of blood vessels that may lead to plaque rupture, ultimately resulting in a heart attack or stroke.

  • Heart Function

Advanced tests strain or other damage to the heart muscle, which can lead to more appropriate treatment for preventing heart attacks.

  • Genetics

Genetic markers predict risk for heart attacks and strokes, plus sensitivity to commonly prescribed medications.

  • Metabolic

Metabolic markers can lead to early detection of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which may reduce or eliminate a patient’s need for insulin.

  • HS-Omega-3 Index

A Fatty Acid Profile is a potent indicator of the nutrients in a patient’s diet that can improve cardiovascular health.
