The Healthy at Immunities Wellness Panel Panel Includes:
Omega Check, Vitamin D 3, Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10 Total, C-Reactive Protein, γ-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT), Hemoglobin (Hb) A1c , Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential, Homocystein, DNA Oxidative Damage Assay, urine (8-OHgD)
Omega Check: Includes Omega 3 Total, Arachidonic Acid/EPA Ration, EPA, DHA, DPA, Arachidonic Acid, Linoleic Acid, OmegaCheck, and Omega 6 Total.
Vitamin D3 is ordered when an individual has low calcium and/or symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. This can appear as bone weakness/softness, or fractures in adults, or as rickets (bone malformation) in children.
Vitamin C: Used to determine Vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C is needed for growth, development and repair of all body tissues. Vitamin C deficiency may be due to malnutrition (scurvy), malabsorption, alcoholism, kidney failure, hyperthyroidism and increased need due to pregnancy.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10; Ubiquinone 50) is an endogenous compound found in most human tissues. It possesses multiple cellular and extracellular functions, primarily based on its ability to undergo redox cycling. It is also a fat-soluble co-factor that is critical for energy producing metabolic pathways and for the proper functioning of the mitochondrial oxidative system.
C-Reactive Protein, Quantitative: Used to aid in the diagnosis of infections or diseases which cause inflammation.
γ-Glutamyl Transferase GGT: used to determine why a patient would have elevated levels of alkaline phosphatase or also known as ALP. This test would be recommended for any patients with disease associated with the bile duct, and also for patients who have liver or bone disease.
Hemoglobin A1c:Diabetes and prediabetes in adults can be diagnosed and screened for using this test. When glucose attaches to hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1c is then created. When glucose levels are elevated, more glycated hemoglobin is created.
The Complete Blood Count (CBC) is often used as a broad screening test to determine an individual’s general health status. It can be used to:
- Screen for a wide range of conditions and diseases
- Help diagnose various conditions, such as anemia, infection, inflammation, bleeding disorder or leukemia, to name just a few
- Monitor the condition and/or effectiveness of treatment after a diagnosis is established
- Monitor treatment that is known to affect blood cells, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy
Homocysteine: This test is ordered for a variety of clinical purposes including heart conditions, and vitamin b12 or folate deficiency. Testing homocysteine can be effective in identifying abnormal levels of B12 and folate before symptoms are present.
DNA Oxidative Damage Assay, urine (8-OHgD): Measurement of 8-hydroxy-2′- Deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) in urine provides a quantitative assessment of ongoing oxidative damage or stress in the body.
