Nutrition is at the core of integrative health and Concierge IV Nutrition’s Micronutrient Testing is the most advanced diagnostic tool available. Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells. These tests allow your nutritional assessment for a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.
Your cellular metabolism and your cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels) are very intricately linked. For various reasons – not just age – our metabolism changes. Our personal chemistry controls these changes and they can be measured in Concierge IV Nutrition’s CardioMetabolic panel, which covers the three main areas of keeping a healthy metabolic profile your whole life: Glycemic Control, Lipid Profile, and Vascular Inflammation.
Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die – a normal biological process. Concierge IV Nutrition’s Telomere Test can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age.
Concierge IV Nutrition offers comprehensive male and female hormone panels that reveal the overall state of hormonal balance in a patient. Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease – mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can initiate cascade of events that alters other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key.
Thyroid hormones directly regulate every cell in our body as well as basic functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. We also test several proteins that affect thyroid function and thyroid antibodies, enabling us to detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
