The Premiere Panel
The Premiere Wellness Panel has all the test that the basic wellness panel test has to offer including the following tests:
If a ferritin test reveals that your blood ferritin level is lower than normal, it indicates your body’s iron stores are low and you have iron deficiency. As a result, you could be anemic.
If a ferritin test shows higher than normal levels, it could indicate that you have a condition that causes your body to store too much iron. It could also point to liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, other inflammatory conditions or hyperthyroidism. Some types of cancer also can cause your blood ferritin level to be high.
Folic acid can be measured in the liquid portion of blood (serum). This reflects a person’s recent intake of folic acid in the diet. Folic acid is found in foods such as liver; citrus fruits; dark green, leafy vegetables (spinach); whole grains; cereals with added B vitamins; beans; milk; kidney; and yeast.
The hs-CRP test accurately measures low levels of CRP to identify low but persistent levels of inflammation and thus helps predict a person’s risk of developing CVD.
The CBC blood test panel measures levels of:
- Red blood cells
- White blood cells
Abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts as revealed in a complete blood count may indicate that you have an underlying medical condition that calls for further evaluation.
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures blood sugar (glucose) levels, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function.
The CMP blood test panel measures levels of:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
LDL helps cause atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that leads to plaque build-up and heart attacks. This lipid panel measures levels of: Total Cholesterol, HDL – “Good Cholesterol”, LDL – “Bad Cholesterol”, and Triglycerides.
Used to help determine overall thyroid function by measuring levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. TSH stimulates the thyroid to produce thyroxine (T4) and ultimately triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones stimulate the metabolism of nearly every tissue in the body.
The A1C test is a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes and to monitor how well you’re managing your diabetes.
A vitamin D test is used to screen for or monitor bone disorders. It is also sometimes used to check vitamin D levels in people with chronic illnesses such as asthma, psoriasis, and certain autoimmune diseases.
Vitamin B12 is vital for good health. Your body needs steady levels of this nutrient to make enough red blood cells and keep your nervous system working.
The main health problem associated with poor B12 absorption is a condition doctors call “pernicious anemia.” It develops if you lack intrinsic factor, a type of protein made in the stomach. Without it, you can’t absorb enough vitamin B12 from food.
