Advanced Lipid Profile and Cardiovascular Markers
Years ago, we used to comment about a patient’s cholesterol based on the Total cholesterol. We then learned that was incorrect, and moved forward to measuring HDL and LDL and Triglycerides . There are now ways to stratify this even further into different types of HDL and LDL. Both categories have good and bad types. So, it is useful to know which type you predominately have. There are also many other cardiac markers which we can measure to help with risk stratification.
Four Point Cortisol Testing
This test has been used by NASA to assess astronaut stress . It can assess stress and risks for metabolic syndrome.
Telomeres are little sections of genetic material at the end of your chromosomes which are thought to prevent chromosomal fraying when cells divide. As your cells age, the telomeres shorten. Eventually, they become too short and the cells stop dividing and die. Age adjusted telomere length is thought to be the best method to assess biological age. So, measuring your telomere length may be useful. Therapies directed to slow telomere regression may be useful at slowing aging and age-related disease. There are several natural and pharmacuetical compounds which have been shown to be able to slow down telomere regression.
Can your genes affect the way that you respond to different types of food and to exercise?
