Preventive care is incredibly valuable. Taking advantage of preventive care could potentially save more than 100,000 lives each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Preventing diseases, or detecting them at the earliest stages, gives you the best chance for maintaining your health.
The team at Renew Infusions and East Valley Serenity Health in Gilbert, Arizona, offers comprehensive wellness labs that measure and analyze a full spectrum of hormones, vitamins, and minerals. Our wellness labs also detect genetic mutations that affect how your body functions.
Preventive lab testing gives you the opportunity to stop disease processes early, or prevent them from developing in the first place. Preventive care is your first line of defense against disease.
When a potential problem is detected, you have the opportunity to take the necessary steps or make the important changes in order to protect your health. Here’s a look at how our wellness labs can help you optimize and maintain good health.
Wellness labs at Renew Infusions and East Valley Serenity Health give us a snapshot of important aspects of your health status, including the levels of certain hormones in your blood, as well as your vitamin and mineral levels. These include:
Thyroid hormones play a key role in your health. Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck. It produces crucial hormones that are involved in a variety of metabolic processes. It helps to control your heart rate, blood pressure, and the amount of calories you burn each day.
Too much or too little thyroid hormone can lead to problems. Hypothyroidism occurs when your thyroid fails to make enough hormone, while hyperthyroidism happens when you have too much thyroid hormone circulating in your blood.
Thyroid hormone problems can cause mood changes, weight gain or loss, hair loss, fatigue, and other problems. Detecting thyroid problems enables you to start prompt treatment so you can feel better.
Testosterone declines naturally as men age. However, lower than normal testosterone is much more common than you may think, and it's not just your father’s problem. Men are experiencing sluggish testosterone levels at earlier ages, making this test an important part of staying healthy throughout your life.
Dehydriepiandristerone is an androgen hormone naturally high in men and lower in women. When DHEA levels are low in men, a number of symptoms can occur. Common symptoms of low DHEA in men include loss of muscle mass, fatigue, and weight gain.
Estrogen is a hormone produced in the ovaries that plays a key role in the female reproductive system. Low levels of estrogen cause a range of symptoms from night sweats and hot flashes to depression and low libido.
Hemoglobin A1C gives us a look at how well your body balances blood sugar by providing an estimated blood sugar average over the previous three months. Detecting elevated hemoglobin A1C levels before type 2 diabetes develops gives you the opportunity to make some diet and lifestyle changes to prevent it from developing.
Our wellness labs check the levels of various nutrients, including B, A, C, D, E, and K, as well as crucial minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Low nutrient levels are a commonly overlooked part of your overall wellness. Your body relies on the right amount of nutrients to function properly.
These are some of the tests our wellness labs cover. To learn more, and to schedule a consultation with one of our providers, call our office or book your appointment online today. Our friendly and knowledgeable team members look forward to helping you optimize your health.
