Good metabolic health is key to maintaining a healthy weight, boosting your energy levels and overall well-being, and managing your risk of chronic health problems like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. By improving your metabolic health, you can help reach your goals of feeling better, having more energy, and maintaining a healthy weight.
C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
Why: Helps us understand how much inflammation is present in the body. This can help us make informed decisions about a successful weight loss plan. Why Track: By monitoring hs-CRP, we can get a better idea of how our body is responding to our diet and exercise plan and make sure that we are taking the necessary steps to achieve our weight loss goals.
Why: A1C is an important marker of your overall health and is a key indicator of your average blood sugar levels over the past three months. Keeping an eye on your A1C can help you spot any patterns that may be making it hard for you to lose weight. For example, if your A1C goes up, it could be a sign that your blood sugar is too high and that you need to adjust your diet and exercise to get it back to a healthy level. By tracking and measuring your A1C, you can stay informed and make sure that your blood sugar and insulin levels are in check, which can help you reach your weight loss goals more quickly.
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
Why: A metabolic panel is a series of blood tests that measure various biomarkers to give an overall picture of your body’s metabolic health. It helps measure the levels of electrolytes, proteins, glucose, enzymes and other substances in your blood. It also helps to diagnose conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease and thyroid dysfunction, which can affect your weight loss goals. By tracking these biomarkers, your doctor can determine if any underlying health issues are interfering with your weight loss plan.
Hormones control many important functions in your body, including metabolism, growth, and reproduction. When your hormones are out of balance, it can cause a wide range of symptoms, like fatigue, weight gain, and mood changes.
T4, T3, TgAB, TPO, TSH
Why: The thyroid is a gland that helps regulate metabolism, which is your body's ability to burn calories and use energy. If your thyroid isn't functioning properly, it can have an impact on your weight loss progress. By tracking and measuring your thyroid panel, you can identify any issues or irregularities that might be interfering with your body's ability to burn calories and use energy. This can help you make the necessary adjustments to your diet and lifestyle to ensure that you are on the right track for achieving your weight loss goals.
Nutrient deficiencies are a lack of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy. When you don't get enough of a certain nutrient, your body can't function as it should, leading to a variety of health problems. So, if you're trying to lose weight, build muscle, or just feel better overall, getting the right nutrients is essential.
Iron plays an important role in helping your body burn fat, as well as transporting oxygen throughout your body. When your iron levels are low, your metabolism can slow down, making it harder to lose weight. Additionally, iron helps with energy levels, so tracking and measuring your iron levels can help you ensure you have the energy you need to stay motivated and on track with your goals.
Vitamin B12 helps your body create energy from the foods you eat, so it's important to make sure you're getting enough. It also helps your body burn fat and build muscle, both of which are important for weight loss.
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Your complete blood count (CBC) measures important components of your blood, such as red and white blood cells, hemoglobin, and platelet count. All of these elements play a role in your overall health, which is necessary for successful weight loss. For instance, if your red and white blood cell count is low, it may be harder to get the energy needed to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. A low hemoglobin count could mean that your body is not getting the oxygen it needs, which can also make it harder to get the physical activity needed to lose weight. A low platelet count could also mean you have a harder time recovering from exercise, which can impede your progress.
Stress, Energy, Focus, and Sleep
Sleep deprivation and chronic stress can make it harder to lose weight. Energy and focus can affect your motivation and drive to do physical activity. We look at biomarkers to better understand how we can optimize across each of these areas.
Cortisol, AM and PM
Cortisol is a hormone that is released when the body is under stress. This hormone can affect your metabolism, which can cause your body to store fat rather than burn it.
Magnesium helps regulate your metabolism, and increased levels can lead to better fat burning and improved energy levels. Additionally, magnesium helps control hunger hormones, making it easier for you to make healthier food choices and keep your cravings in check.
