Healthy Aging Panel (Basic) Blood Test

Item # LC100025

To assess general health, this test evaluates thyroid function, three vitamin levels, cardiovascular risk, four insulin resistance markers and a complete blood count and metabolic panel.

This panel contains the following tests:

Thyroid Function – Too much or too little thyroid hormone can spell trouble for your health and well-being.

  • Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)

Vitamins – Maintaining optimal levels is crucial for energy, immune function, mood regulation, and influencing the expression of genes involved in cancer development.

  • Vitamin B12
  • Folate
  • Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy

Cardiovascular Risk – Important marker for identifying inflammation.

  • C-reactive protein (high sensitivity)

Insulin Resistance Markers - Insulin plays a major role in metabolism—the way the body uses food for energy. Insulin resistance can lead to a variety of serious health disorders.

  • Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C)
  • Glucose
  • Insulin
  • Ferritin

General Health Markers - Comprehensive wellness screening to check cholesterol, liver and kidney function, blood minerals and proteins, electrolyte status, anemia, immune function, and more.

  • Complete metabolic panel with lipids
  • Complete blood count (CBC)

Sample Report

The rate at which people age varies widely and the hallmarks of aging, such as loss of muscle tone and energy, a declining immune system, increased levels of body fat, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and a depleted memory occurs much faster in some individuals than others.

Why does the difference exist? The answer is gene expression. In other words, it depends on whether or not you are running your aging software at optimal levels.

Improving our aging software is an attainable goal since aging is fundamentally a metabolic process. This panel checks those metabolic processes such as inflammation, vitamin and mineral balance, sugar and lipid control, immune function, and thyroid regulation.

Instructions

This test may be done fasting or 2-6 hours after eating. Both ways provide valuable information, though 2-6 hours after a meal provides a more realistic assessment of the state of your blood in everyday life. Stay hydrated and take your medications as prescribed. Avoid B12 and folate containing supplements for 12 hours preceding the test. The MMA test can provide more information on B12 status as high levels of MMA are a more sensitive marker of vitamin B12 deficiency.
