Basic Health Screen (BHS)
Also called a chemistry panel, the Basic Health Screening, consists of a CMP, CBC, and urinalysis, and is designed to assess the functionality of your major organs, including your heart, kidneys, and liver as well as your bones, muscles, and nerves. A CMP, which stands for Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, is actually a series of 14 specific tests that display information about your pH balance, electrolyte levels, blood sugars, and blood proteins, as well as the functionality of your kidneys and liver. CBC stands for Complete Blood Count to check for diseases such as anemia or various infections. Like the CMP, it is actually a panel of tests that check for things such as your red and white blood cell counts, platelet numbers, hemoglobin levels, and various other factors. A urinalysis is useful to check for diabetes and urinary tract infections. It gives accurate measurements of things such as your glucose and ketone levels.
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)
The ALT test helps to diagnose liver disease. Alanine aminotransferase, or ALT levels should be low. High ALT is a potential indicator of a liver injury, damage or disease. This test is the most accurate among the panel of liver tests.
Measures the control of blood glucose levels in people with diabetes over a 6 to 12 week period.
Heart Health Screening Level 1
The Lipid Profile test and C-Reactive Protein test are both powerful heart assessments. A lipid profile is comprised of four tests that help to determine your risk level for coronary heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes. Included in a lipid profile are tests for total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides. The high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein test measures the amount of inflammation in your body. High levels of C-reactive protein could be an indication of an infection or other serious disease such as heart disease.
Thyroid Function Test Level 1
Includes a Thyroid Profile test as well as a TSH blood test. A thyroid profile helps to identify the causes of metabolism issues, fatigue, and a general feeling of poor health. The three most common thyroid problems are hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and thyroid cancer. The TSH, or Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone blood test checks overall thyroid gland function.
Male Prostate Screening
This screening includes the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. A high PSA level can be an indication of a prostate tumor.
Male Hormone Levels
The Male Hormone Check consists of tests that measure levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and Free and Total Testosterone. Abnormal HGH results may be caused by disorders of the pituitary gland and are adversely affected as men age. A Testosterone test measures the level of male hormone in the blood. The levels of this hormone naturally begin to decrease after age 40, so normal level results are age adjusted. Many physicians now believe that addressing low levels of Testosterone and HGH are the key to slow the aging process by treating aging as a disease, Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Sulfate- A steroid hormone produced by precursor cholesterol in the adrenal cortex. Cortisol levels can indicate problems with the adrenal glands or pituitary gland. Cortisol has numerous functions including playing an important role in metabolism and helping the body manage stress, he sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) blood test measures the amount of this glycoprotein that binds to the sex hormones testosterone and estradiol. A SHBG blood typically performed to evaluate a person's hormone levels. We also measure for Total Estrogen.
