VitaHealth Analysis Expanded – Male

There is a saying that “no money is worth poor health.” We’re of the same mindset and the first step to healthy living is being aware of your health. The expanded men’s lab tests for major organ and body health. Testing ranges from a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel to a vitamin panel to testing the health of the prostate. This package provides an assessment of overall health using tests often ordered at an annual wellness visit. It is also used to evaluate concerns common among men, including:

  • Screening for diabetes
  • Assessing risk for heart disease
  • Assessing testosterone and other hormone levels
  • Evaluating thyroid function
  • Evaluating cancer markers such as PSA and CEA
  • Assessing vitamin levels

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP14)

The U.S National Library of Medicine and the American Association for Clinical Chemistry recommends a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) recommends a regular schedule for this test. Monitoring the metabolism through kidney and liver function, this test gives your doctor a picture of your overall health and function of the major metabolic organs. This is the first step in monitoring how a specific condition or medication affects the liver or kidneys.

Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)

Studies by the National Cancer Institute point to abnormal levels of PSA in the blood being a sign of dysfunction in the prostate. More than 3 million U.S cases of prostate cancer are reported each year. Age, race/ethnicity, geography, and family history are all factors that affect prostate cancer risk. Testing for PSA can catch cancer at the earliest possible time and increases the success of treatment.

Vitamin D

Bone density and osteoporosis become major risks with age. Healing time for bones increases dramatically after the age of 35 and 40. Vitamin D assists the intestines in absorbing calcium from food. Vitamin D can only be obtained from the sun, so people living in less sunny climates will have Vitamin D deficiency and are at risk for osteoporosis later in life. Testing can catch the deficiency early on and prohibit further harm through treatment.

Testosterone

Research suggests that testosterone begins to dip 1% a year after age 30. This important hormone produced by the testicles contributes to the overall health in men by regulating bone density, muscle strength and mass, facial and body hair, and sex drive. Abnormal level of testosterone can lead to changes in sleep patterns, physical changes like increased body fat and decreased muscle mass, as well as emotional changes like decreased motivation or self-confidence.

VitaHealth Analysis

Expanded - Male

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel 14 (CMP14) Measures levels of 14 individual components to assess overall health
Complete Bood Count (CBC) with Differential Measures red and white blood cells, hematocrit, hemoglobin and platelets
Urinalysis (UA) Examines a urine sample for the presence of proteins and other signs of infection
Lipid Panel Cholesterol test for LDL, HDL, Total and Triglycerides
Hemoglobin A1C (HgbA1c) Measures the average amount of glucose (blood sugar) over the past 2-3 months to screen for diabetes or monitor existing diabetes
Microalbumin:Creatinine Ratio Evaluates the ratio of albumin (protein) to creatinine (waste product) in a urine sample to evaluate kidney function
C-Reactive Protein Highly Sensitive (hs-CRP), Cardiac Measures the level of C-reactive protein (CRP) to help assess risk for heart disease
Homocysteine High levels of homocysteine in the blood are related to a higher risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis
Thyroid Profile Measures T3 Uptake, T4 and T7
Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Measures the amount of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) to evaluate thyroid function
T-3 (Triiodothyronine), Total Measures the amount of triiodothyronine, T3, to evaluate thyroid function
Expanded Liver Panel Measures levels of several enzymes and proteins to assess liver function
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Sulfate Measures the level of the DHEA sulfate hormone to assess adrenal function
Testosterone, Free & Total Measures the total level of testosterone, including the small portion circulating freely in the body
Estradiol, Sensitive Measures the level of estradiol with increased sensitivity for men and post-menopausal women
Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Measures the level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to evaluate prostate function in men age 40 and older
Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) CEA is associated with certain kinds of cancers, especially colon and rectal cancer. Elevated CEA levels are also found with other cancers including pancreatic, gastric, lung, ovary, and breast
Vitamin D, 25 Hydroxy Measures the amount of vitamin D, an important factor in bone strength
Ferritin Measures level of ferritin to assess iron deficiency or iron overload
Vitamin B12 & Folate Measures the amount of B12 and folate (folic acid) to screen for nutrition or absorption issues and certain types of anemia
Vitamin C The Vitamin C blood test measures the levels of Vitamin C in the blood
Vitamin B6 The Vitamin B6 blood test measures the levels of Pyrodoxine in the blood
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) The Vitamin B1 blood test measures the levels of Thiamine in the blood
Iron Measures level of iron to assess iron deficiency or iron overload
Low-Density Lipoprotein (Direct) The direct low-density lipoprotein test (direct LDL-C) measures the amount of LDL cholesterol
