  • Vitamin D-3 Level (25 – OH Vit D3 )
    • Ideal is 65 – 100 ng/ml as long as serum calcium 10 or less.
    • Research suggests we need this hormone for protection against a number of serious diseases, including many types of cancer.
    • Needed for bone health
  • HemoglobinA1C (glycocylated hemoglobin)
    • Ideal is less than 5.0 (lower is better)
    • Is a measurement of the percentage of blood sugar attached to hemoglobin, the oxygen carrying protein in red blood cells.
    • The test indicates average blood sugar levels for the past three months
  • Fasting Insulin
    • Ideal is less than 7
    • In this blood test your blood is tested after an overnight fast.
  • hsCRP (cardiac high sensitivity CRP)
    • Ideal is less than .5
    • Is a substance produced by the liver that increases in the presence of inflammation in the body.
    • Low-level internal inflammation can lead to many serious, age-related diseases.
  • Homocysteine
    • Ideal 7-9
    • Single greatest cause of brain degeneration and shrinkage
    • Elevated homocysteine levels are thought to contribute to plaque formation by damaging arterial walls. High levels may also act on blood platelets and increase the risks of clot formation.
    • Some evidence suggests that people with elevated homocysteine levels have twice the normal risk of developingAlzheimer’s
    • Homocysteine elevations strongly suggest problems in using folic acid and critical B-Vitamins properly.
