Blood Chemistries

Our network of general practitioners will perform the wide range of blood chemistries necessary to increase the likelihood of finding abnormalities that are -

  1. present in toxicity conditions and related disorders
  2. common and present in all infections
  3. present in all chronic degenerative diseases
  4. associated with symptoms of sub-par health and general malaise

Essentially screening for a wider range blood chemistries can increase our chances of detecting the presence of an ongoing disease process, or establish a risk profile for your potential to develop diseases like  cardiovascular, auto-immune condtions or diabetes just to name a few.

In this context blood chemistry results have long been used to establish health status and aid in the determination of nutritional requirements and natural therapy medicine protocols we can use to correct the on-going disease process.

In an anti-aging medical environment you may pay over $500.00 to get these alternative type of pathology-chemistry tests performed as they are not considered routine tests that should be screened for on a regular basis. If you can find a doctor willing to perform the wide range of chemistries we test for then you are doing very well.  Using the Health Detective we can cover these costs under medicare and the process costs you less than $100.00, the money it costs for our doctor’s time to take your blood and send it off to the pathology laboratories we use.

This information is invaluable and essential in the final determination of your current state of health. Many g.p’s will just do a total blood cell count, a liver function test and cholesterol screen to determine your health status. This is grossly insufficient information when trying to determine whether an individual is healthy or potentially on a pathway to disease manifestation.

The health detective will screen blood chemistries that allow us to risk profile you for many conditioins -

  • Anaemia
  • Diabetes and Insulin Resistance Disorder
  • Heart Disease and Thrombosis Risk
  • Kidney Disease
  • Liver Health Status
  • Thyroid Function/ Disorders
  • Infection Status
  • Adrenal Gland Insufficiency
  • Arthritis Risk
  • Auto-immune Disease Risk
  • Emotional Stress

In summary you could say there is so much more to heart health status than simply having a low cholesterol, however, that is often all that is commonly performed by your GP so as to give you the all clear! Its just not enough!!!!!

Blood Chemistry Panel Screening
What makes our health screening Service more comprehensive?
Your GP will normally only request routine pathologies when doing health check ups that include pathology markers like Full Blood Count, Liver Function, biochemistry, Lipid and Cholesterol Studies and sometimes iron status.

We are interested in testing for a much wider range of potential abnormalities that there-fore provide us with a greater chance of finding deficiencies or the presence of an abnormal process going on within your body.

If your interested you can look at some of the other (than those above) blood chemistry markers we routinely include in our screening procedures when doing health assessments. All these markers provide a wealth of functional information on the status of your body organs (pituitary, thymus, adrenals, liver, cardiovascular system etc) and other biochemical processes within your cells and tissues.
The numerical data that comes back to us provides us valuable information on various aspects of your body’s health status and where within your metabolic/ biochemical matrix the answer to your health problems and symptoms can be found!!
