    Adrenocortex Stress Profile with Cortisol Awakening Response

    $280.00

    A Comprehensive Tool to Assess the HPA Axis — Stress Response and Resiliency

    The Adrenocortex Stress Profile (ASP) provides an assessment of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis using carefully timed salivary samples of the hormones cortisol and DHEA. Salivary testing is an easy, non-invasive option to measure unbound, biologically active parent hormone levels. The report offers an easy-to-interpret graphic which plots the results of the cortisol awakening response (CAR) and the natural diurnal rhythm.

    Types of tests

    • Adrenocortex Stress Profile (ASP): Four salivary samples measured throughout the day to give insight into the natural circadian diurnal cortisol rhythm, and help clinicians address specific daily stressors.
    • Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR): Three awakening samples to evaluate CAR with one evening cortisol sample.
      • CAR is a transient, immediate rise in cortisol upon awakening and is distinct from the diurnal rhythm. CAR reflects a person’s ability to cope with anticipated challenges and their perception of control around chronic stress, providing insight into HPA axis resiliency.
      • The isolated evening cortisol has distinct clinical implications. Elevated evening cortisol is linked to insomnia and associated with various diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonally driven cancers, and osteoporosis.

     

    • Adrenocortex Stress Profile with Cortisol Awakening Response (ASP with CAR): Six samples that offers the most comprehensive look at cortisol and the HPA axis.

    This test is useful for

    • hypertension
    • cardiovascular disease
    • gastrointestinal and immune dysregulation
    • diabetes and metabolic syndrome
    • depression
    • chronic fatigue
    • persistent pain
    • neurodegenerative disease and cognitive decline

    Amino Acids 11 Profile – Blood Spot

    $259.00

    What is the Amino Acids 11 Blood Spot Profile?

    Amino acids play central roles as building blocks of proteins and as intermediates in metabolism. Amino-acid metabolism may be compromised by common lifestyle and dietary factors, which may result in inadequate levels of essential amino acids and/or missing nutrient cofactors required for effective amino acid metabolism. The Bloodspot Amino Acids 11 Profile is a finger-stick amino acid test that can illuminate problems in basic amino acid absorption by determining amino acid imbalances in the nine essential amino acids and two conditionally essential amino acids. Intervention with a customized amino-acid supplement based on test results may be effective in conditions associated with inefficient amino acid metabolism.

    The complete Amino Acids 11 Profile Bloodspot assesses:

    • Essential Amino Acids
      • Limiting Amino Acids
      • Branched Chain Amino Acids
      • Other Essential Amino Acids
      • Conditionally Essential Amino Acids
      • Ratios

    This test is useful for

    • Gaining insight into Dietary Protein Intake and Digestion/Absorption
    • Weight Issues/Dietary Guidance

    CardioGenomicPlus™ Profile

    $535.00

    The CardioGenomic Plus™ Profile uses genomic testing to identify the risk of genetic susceptibility to cardiac related diseases and conditions. Specifically, the CardioGenomic Plus™ Profile evaluates genetic variations, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes that modulate blood pressure regulation, lipid balance, nutrient metabolism, inflammation, and oxidative stress.

    This test uncovers potential genetic susceptibility to:

    • Hypercholesteremia
    • Atherosclerosis
    • Obesity
    • Hypertension
    • Myocardial infarction
    • Thrombosis
    • Endothelial dysfunction
    • Stroke

    Cholesterol Regulation and Atherosclerosis

    • ApoE (apolipoprotein E)
    • CETP (cholesteryl ester transfer protein)
    • SELE (selectin E)

    These genes affect how the body breaks down and clears fats and how cholesterol is processed. They also affect lipid balance, plaque formation, and blood vessel integrity and function.

    Methylation

    • MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase)

    Polymorphisms of this enzyme can disrupt the metabolism of homocysteine, resulting in its accumulation as well as impaired methylation. The presence of these SNPs can increase risk of cardiovascular disease, blood vessel damage, thrombosis (blood clots), stroke, and degenerative aging.

    Hypertension

    • GNB3 (guanine nucleotide-binding protein)
    • AGTR1 (angiotensin II receptor-1)

    Polymorphisms of these genes are associated with blood vessel constriction, sodium and water retention, obesity, and increased susceptibility to hypertension.

    Coagulation

    • Factor 2 (prothrombin)
    • Factor 5 (Leiden)
    • PAI-1 (Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1)
    • GP3a (Glycoprotein 3)

    These genetic variants can over-activate blood clotting processes, increasing the risk of sudden cardiac events such as thrombosis, heart attacks, and strokes.
