Healthy Aging Panel (Comprehensive)
Item Catalog Number: LC100026
The rate at which people age varies widely and the hallmarks of aging, such as loss of muscle tone and energy, a declining immune system, increased levels of body fat, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and a depleted memory occurs much faster in some individuals than others.
Why does the difference exist? The answer is gene expression ... in other words, it depends whether or not you are running your aging software at optimal levels.
The good news is that improving our aging software is an attainable goal since aging is fundamentally a metabolic process! This panel addresses aging biomarkers associated with inflammation, cardiac function, vitamin and mineral balance, sugar and lipid control, immune function, and thyroid regulation. This panel also contains a urinalysis which can help detect problems in many parts of your body including your kidneys, urinary tract, heart and liver. A urinalysis can help detect many problems before symptoms occur!

This healthy aging panel requires an 8 to 12 hour fast prior to the blood draw; however make sure you drink water in order to stay hydrated. A random urine sample will also be collected as part of this panel so samples taken in the morning before 10 AM are preferred but not required. Take all prescription medications as prescribed.
