The Metabolic Health Check Up
Where do you sit on the Metabolic Health Scale, and why should you book a Metabolic Health Assessment?
How This Could benefit Me?
Are you feeling tired? Does your performance drop after lunch? Does your body ache for no apparent reason? Are you forgetting names? Has your doctor been concerned about your blood results or blood pressure?
What We Do
We undertake a detailed examination with attention to the markers of Metabolic illness. A comprehensive history is essential.
What sort of things do we check?
Ferritin and Uric Acid. The impact of too many carbs and the presence of insulin resistance can be detected with raised ferritin and uric acid. Mildly abnormal liver function tests can represent Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.
Lipids. We focus on triglyceride and HDL, not LDL cholesterol. Modern evidence based science interepts your lipid results differently and it’s likely your cardiovascular risk (Heart Attack risk) could be different. You may have even been prescribed medication that can potentially be stopped.
We measure insulin and C-peptide. This gives us more understanding of the impact of insulin on the body.
Vitamin D. This is in fact a hormone and is so important, so often low and virtually never checked on a standard blood panel.
Minerals like zinc are so important for immune function and again usually not checked on a standard blood panel.
Optional – Taupo only – Biometrics including an assessment of visceral fat with the impedance scales.
What Outcome is Achieved?
These blood test allow us to visualize how your body is processing energy, if fat is being stored or burnt and if you are at higher or lower heart attack and stroke risk than you thought.
