Highly Sensitive C-Reactive Protein

CRP is an inflammatory marker. CRP is widely reported as a possible key indicator of heart health & may help physicians predict a patient's long-term risk of a cardiovascular event. Do not participate if you have tissue injury, infection or general inflammation. Individuals with Arthritis should not have this measured.

WBC (white blood cells), RBC (red blood cells), Hgb (hemoglobin), Hct (Hematocrit), Platelets, MCV (mean cell volume), MCHC (mean cell hemoglobin concentration), Neutrophils, Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Eosinophils and Basophils.

TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) & Free T4

Total Testosterone

Magnesium (Mg)

Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong and the heart rhythm steady. Adults who consume less than the recommended amount of Mg are more likely to have elevated inflammation markers. Low Mg appears to be a risk factor for osteoporosis. There's some evidence that eating foods high in Mg and other minerals can help prevent high blood pressure in people with prehypertension.

FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone)

Used to help women determine if they are in menopause or have gone through menopause. For women age 45 and older, Women who have had a hysterectomy and did not have their ovaries removed, Women who are experiencing changes in their normal cycle, are having irregular cycles, or are experiencing hot flashes. This test is not valid if on any form of estrogen or progesterone.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 (also known as cobalamin) is a vitamin required for neurologic function, DNA synthesis, and production of blood cells. The major dietary sources are meat, fish, and dairy products. While not present in significant amounts in plants, it is added to a variety of fortified grain and cereal products. Groups at risk for B12 deficiency include older adults, vegetarians, and patients with impaired B12 absorption (such as those with gastrointestinal disorders or following gastrointestinal surgery). Symptoms of B12 deficiency include fatigue, anemia, weakness, constipation, and tingling of hands and feet. Dietary supplementation is usually effective for B12 replacement; however, injections are required in some cases.

Vitamin D - 25 Hydroxy

Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin in response to sunlight. The best nutrition sources of D are oily fish primarily salmon and mackerel, some vegetables, yeast and fungi. Vitamin D is converted to 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the liver. The measurement of 25-OH vitamin D concentration in the serum or plasma is the best indicator of vitamin D nutritional status. Vitamin D deficiency is commonly treated with vitamin D2 or D3 medications, fortified foods or nutrition supplements.


Ferritin is a blood cell protein that contains iron. A ferritin test helps your primary care provider to understand how much iron your body is storing.
