Athletic Performance Panel
Athletic Performance Panel
This provides you with key information necessary for you to monitor or enhance your athletic or personal performance. It includes a comprehensive blood work up, in addition to vitamin, mineral, hormone, and inflammatory markers. This panel allows you to stay on top of your game by monitoring your athletic fitness on a more sophisticated level.
If you are trying to lose weight, improve your fitness performance, or just want to be more proactive with your health, this panel will provide you with some very important insights. Deficiencies in B vitamins, vitamin D, magnesium, iron, or low testosterone levels can negatively impact training and recovery. In addition, knowing your creatine kinase level lets you know if you are over working your muscles and causing inflammation.
The Athletic Performance Panel Includes:
CBC (Complete Blood Count)
A CBC gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. This panel looks for many illnesses, including anemia, infections, and leukemia, in your blood.
CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel)
CMP is a blood test that measures your sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. This panel includes ALT/(SPGT), alkaline phosphatase, AST/SGOT, bilirubin total, bun, calcium, carbon dioxide total, chloride, creatinine, globulin, glucose, potassium, protein total, sodium. AG ratio, bun/creatinine ratio.
The lipid panel measures HDL (high-density lipoprotein), LDL (low-density lipoprotein), VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein), and provides a LDL:HDL ratio. The ratio can help a person evaluate their risk for heart disease.
Iron & TIBC
Iron is an important mineral that your body needs to stay healthy. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, the protein in your red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body. The total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) test looks at how well the iron moves through your body.
Ferritin is a protein found inside cells that stores iron so your body can use it later. A ferritin test indirectly measures the amount of iron in your blood.
This test detects blood sugar imbalances, such as high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Measuring glucose can screen for prediabetes and diabetes and is also important for monitoring persons with diabetes.
Vitamin B12 & Folate
Measuring vitamin B12 & folate levels can help determine the cause of macrocytic anemia. Vitamin B12 is necessary for the formation of normal red blood cells, nerve function, and tissue and cellular repair.
Vitamin D, 25-hydroxy test measures the level of circulating vitamin D in the blood. This very important vitamin performs many vital roles in the body, including supporting bone and immune health. Many people do not have adequate vitamin D levels. This test can be helpful in identifying an insufficiency and determining an optimal vitamin D3 supplement dosage level.
Magnesium is a mineral that is important for strong bones and muscles, heart health, glucose and blood pressure regulation, energy production, and nerve function. This test is used to determine the level of magnesium in red blood cells, which provides a very accurate measurement.
Creatine Kinase, Total
Creatine Kinase is an enzyme found in the heart, muscle, brain and other tissue, which is released into the bloodstream when a muscle is damaged. This test is used to detect, evaluate, and monitor muscle damage, including damage to the heart.
Testosterone, Free & Total
Testosterone is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, endocrine tissue in male testicles, and female ovaries. It is also produced from the conversion of steroid hormones such as DHEA. Testosterone plays an important role in mood and mental outlook, bone and muscle health, cardiovascular health, and libido. Testosterone levels tend to decline with age. Total testosterone measures the total amount of testosterone in the blood stream. Free testosterone measures the amount of testosterone that is available to connect with testosterone receptors in the body.
