PREMIUM Concierge Service Testing

The most comprehensive and exclusive diagnostic testing available in the healthcare marketplace. Nineteen distinct lab panels that evaluate all known biomarkers that indicate and contribute to athletic performance, cardiac robustness, lipid optimization, thyroid well-being, absolute inflammation quantification, as well as reproductive hormones for women and men.  As with all of our labs, this testing includes a thorough consultation with our medical team for a profound assessment of your body’s biochemistry with a custom tailored approach to your nutritional, medicinal, dietary and supplement recommendations.

*Note, this panel takes 8 vials of blood to process, about 24 ml. This is well below the blood donation amount of 450ml, but will be more than other blood draws you have had in the past.

Advanced Cholesterol

  • HDL – Measure of healthy cholesterol that helps to decrease the amount of LDL
  • LDL – High levels of LDL can lead to cardiovascular disease and clogging of essential vessels
  • Total Cholesterol – HDL + LDL
  • Triglycerides – Measured fat in the blood; in high amounts, it can deposit in the vessels contributing to vascular disease
  • Lipoprotein A – Elevations in Lp(a) are associated with heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke
  • ApoB – A protein used to help with lipid processing; high levels of ApoB have a strong correlation to heart disease

Panel Adds:

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids – Essential fatty acid found in fish that decreases inflammation in the body and decreases the risk of chronic disease
  • Free Fatty Acids – Unbound fatty acids in the blood that can lead to plaque build-up in arteries, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Lipid Particle Sizes – Size of unbound lipids in the blood
  • Lipid Particle Numbers – Number of unbound lipids in the blood
  • ApoA1 – Binding protein of HDL, the “healthy cholesterol” that helps reduce amounts of LDL cholesterol in the blood

Liver and Kidney Function

  • AST/ALT – Liver function tests
  • Total Bilirubin – Byproduct of red blood cell breakdown
  • BUN/Creatinine – Chief metric of kidney function
  • Albumin – Main blood protein produced in the liver that helps regulate oncotic pressure
  • Total Protein – Important to evaluate nutritional status and edema

Sex Hormones

  • Testosterone – Fat-soluble primarily male sex hormone
  • Estradiol – Potent estrogen, the main female sex hormone
  • Free Testosterone – Measure of unbound testosterone
  • DHEA – Produced in the adrenal glands and is a precursor to testosterone and estrogen
  • Sex Hormone Binding Globulin – Binds to testosterone and estrogen; usually twice as high in men than women

Metabolic Maintenance

  • Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF-1) – Secreted in response to Growth Hormone and helps to build strong muscles and bone; it is synthesized in the liver
  • Insulin – Hormone necessary for sugar to get into the cells; Insulin resistance is a chief symptom of Type 2 Diabetes
  • Cortisol – Produced by the adrenal glands and acts as a primary stress hormone used by the body

Blood Sugar Control

  • HbA1C – Gives a 3-month valuation of blood sugar control; this test looks at red blood cells and the glycosylation of the sugar on the surface of the cell; this is a more in-depth test to check for diabetes; the higher an A1C value, the poorer blood sugar control you have
  • Glucose – Chief metric measured to check for diabetes

Advanced Thyroid Panel

Approximately 20 million Americans have thyroid disorders.

  • Total T4 – Measure of total T4 bound and unbound in the body; T4 will turn into T3 when it becomes active
  • Total T3 – Active thyroid hormone in the body; helpful in confirming the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism
  • T3 Uptake – Thyroid function test useful in diagnosing hypothyroid and hyperthyroid conditions
  • Free T3 – T3 not bound to carrier proteins
  • Free T4 Index – T4 not bound to carrier proteins
  • Reverse T3 – Measure of degradation of thyroid hormone from rare disorders
  • TSH – Measure of thyroid stimulation from the brain
  • Free T4 – Storage bank of T4, the thyroid “pantry”

Advanced Inflammation

  • C Reactive Protein – Generalized inflammatory marker that may indicate an increased risk for arterial plaque formation
  • Fibrinogen – Acute phase clotting factor
  • Homocysteine – An amino acid; high levels of Homocysteine have been linked to the development of cardiovascular disease

Women's Reproductive Panel

  • Progesterone – Produced mainly in the ovaries and helps regulate the menstrual cycle
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – Stimulates the growth, nourishment and development of an egg prior to ovulation; increases estrogen production
  • Luteinizing Hormone – Produced in the brain to help trigger ovulation

Nutrient Panel

  • Vitamin D – Over half of Americans have deficiencies in Vitamin D which is necessary for absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphate from the diet; Calcium synthesis is necessary for strong bones, muscular function and nerve transmission; Vitamin D is gained from sunlight as well as the diet
  • Calcium – Essential for bone strength and muscle function
  • Electrolytes – Potassium, Chloride, and Sodium, key electrolytes that help regulate numerous body functions including nerve transmission and the beating of your heart
  • Bicarbonate – Responsible for acid/base balance in the body
  • Folate – B vitamin essential for growth and development; essential for making DNA and RNA and for processing amino acids
  • Magnesium – Helps to regulate over 300 biochemical activities in the body; the “relaxation mineral”
  • Vitamin B12 – Essential for the fatty sheath surrounding nerves in the brain and body; a deficiency can indicate anemia
  • Total Iron Binding Capacity – How well iron is bound to protein carriers in the blood
  • Ferritin – A measure of iron storage in the blood; a low level of Ferritin can indicate that anemia is likely to happen soon
  • CBC w/ Differential – Detailed assessment of the fundamentals of your blood cells; helps identify anemia and total counts of white blood cells
