Vitamin D Metabolism Profile
Vitamin D is not only an essential fat-soluble vitamin but also is an important nutrient for human growth and health. The Human body can either obtain vitamin D from food intake (mainly egg yolk, fish oil, and plants), or from synthesis by skin exposed to sunlight. The main function of vitamin D is to help a body absorb calcium, maintain bone health, regulate gene expression and cell function; furthermore, it is also hormone precursors.
After a body absorbs vitamin D, it will react by two hydroxylation, then it turns to 25-OH Vitamin D and 1,25-(OH)2-Vitamin D. Although only 1,25-(OH)2-Vitamin D is physiologically active, the blood concentration of 25-OH Vitamin D is 1000-fold higher than that of 1,25-(OH)2-Vitamin D, and moreover, 25-OH Vitamin D is the major storage pattern in human body. Therefore, 25-OH Vitamin D is clinically a target analyte for determining the status of vitamin D in human body.
Only the total amount of vitamin D can be detected in routine biochemical tests, so the amount of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D2/D3 (vitamin D2/D3) cannot be understood individually. This test provides two individual results using a high-performance liquid chromatography mass spectrometer , which can provide more accurate clinical reference for medical professionals.
|25-Hydroxyvitamin D2||Synthetic form; it is available in most nutritional supplements and vitamin enhanced foods.|
|25-Hydroxyvitamin D3||It is catalysis of ultraviolet radiation which formed when skin is exposed to sunlight, and then transports by blood throughout the body; finally, it needs to be activated into hormones, which is the main indicator of high concentration in blood.|
People with cancer medical history, those are suspected of osteoporosis, depression, immunocompromised, autoimmune diseases, those who do not enjoy sunlight, those who regularly prevent skin from sunlight, those often suffer from muscle pain, asthmatics, those suffer from atopic skin Inflammatory.
Estrogen Metabolism Profile
After estrogen metabolized by the liver, the metabolites of which will work on the target tissue, the metabolites can be divided into good or bad estrogen by the properties of metabolites. By measuring the proportion of healthy and risky estrogen metabolites, we can further understand the risk of suffering from breast cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer and prostate cancer.
High-stress office workers, people who are chronic fatigue, those who are suspected of having memory loss due to stress, hormonal disorders caused by stress, and those who are suspected of skin aging.
Anti-Stress-related Hormone Profile
In modern life, people can suffer from all kinds of possible stress. However, when a human body is under long-term stress, it is prone to suffer from stress-induced memory loss, hormonal disorders, skin aging, and even chronic diseases. This test can help you understand the current stage of stress period.
High-stress office workers, people who are chronic fatigue, those who are suspected of suffering memory loss due to stress, hormonal disorders caused by stress, and those who are suspected of having skin aging due to stress.
Insomnia Stress-related Hormone Profile
When a body faces different pressures caused by physiological or psychological emotions, the adrenal cortex will secrete stress-hormone (Cortisol) to cope with external pressure. Furthermore, when the pressure continues to accumulate and has not been relieved, the rhythm of secreting stress-hormone will begin to confuse, and eventually, the person will leads to sleep disorder. Insomnia stress hormone test is a precise but non-invasive test that analyzes the 24-hour secretory rhythm of Cortisol in a body to understand its own condition of stress regulation.
People with sleep disorders, those who are light sleepers and easily roused from sleep, those with chronic fatigue, those with depression, those with memory loss, and those with uncontrollable three-hypers series (high blood sugar, high blood pressure, and high blood lipid).。
Females Presenility-related Hormone Profile
A comprehensive analysis can assess the secretion amount of pituitary gland, corticoid, sex hormone and its balance ratio. Meanwhile, it can also evaluate the function of inventory in ovarian. Whether the secretion of the indicators mentioned above are balanced directly relates to several problems, such as female fertility, menstrual cycle, gynecological diseases, skin aging, cardiovascular health, and emotional health. By examining the secretion of hormones in a body, a diet plan or treatment can be scheduled based on an individual's physical condition; additionally, women can effectively maintain their health.
People with irregular menstruation, premenstrual syndrome, suspected ovarian dysfunction, sleep disorders, depression, and various gynecological diseases such as uterine fibroids, polycystic ovary, chocolate cysts, carcinoma of endometrium, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, hormone imbalance caused by stress, and those who are suspected infertility.
Females Senescence-related Hormone Profile
A complete analysis can assess the function of adrenal cortex, the secretion amount of sex hormone and its balance ratio. Meantime, anti-aging-related growth factors and the indicators of osteoporosis will be evaluated. In addition, the analysis can also help you understand the stage of the current stress period you are in.
Whether the secretion of the indicators mentioned above are balanced directly relates to several female problems, such as bone metabolism, physical strength, gynecological diseases, skin aging, cardiovascular health, and emotional health.
People who have symptoms of menopause, osteoporosis, those with a melancholic tendency, sleep disorders, gynecological diseases, those who have lost energy, and those who are aging.
Males Hormone Profile
A comprehensive analysis can assess the secretion amount of pituitary gland, adrenal cortex, sex hormone and its balance ratio. It can help you understand the stage of the current stress period you are in; meanwhile, it can detect the concentration of zinc, so the deficiency of it can be promptly discovered, and we can further control the progress of nutritional treatment.
People with long-term tiredness, reduced mass of muscle, increased body fat, memory loss, depression or anxiety, decreasing concentration, sexual dysfunction, cardiovascular diseases, male alopecia, prostate disease, male menopause, and those who have hormonal imbalance caused by stress.
