This test is used to identify elevated levels of interleukin-1 beta(IL-1β).
Life Extension® believes that chronic inflammation which is modulated by cytokines such as IL-1β, is the common denominator of all age-related disease. While cytokines are important in the inflammatory response as well as a healthy immune response, the cytokines themselves have the potential for inducing damage, especially at high levels.
IL-1β is one of the key mediators of the inflammatory response to physical stress with elevated levels being associated with: anxiety, panic disorders and those at an increased cardiovascular risk.
Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
