Check Up Health Optimization Men (ages 18 – 40) Screening Check Up

Young men’s Screening Check Up uses the tests of the Basic Check up Screening Panel, as described herebelow:

 

Test / AnalyteDescription / Detects - Measures
Complete Blood Count - Measurement Hematocrit, Red -White Blood Cells - Platelets and Morphology
Detects Anaemias, Infections - Bone marrow disorders.
Indications of chronic deseases
Erythrocyte Sedimentation RateChronic Inflammations - infections
CRP-hsAccute Inflammations - infections.
Cardiovascular risk factor
GlucoseDiabetes
UreaRenal function
CreatininineRenal function
Uric AcidArthritis
Nutritional assesment
Total CholesterolCardiovascular Risk Factors
Cholesterol Dietary intake
Drug therapy assessment
HDL Cholesterol
LDL Cholesterol
Triglycerides
Atheromatosis Index
Liver Enzyme γ-GTLiver function test
Hepatitis B/C - drug -alcohol induced - fatty liver - cancer etc
Liver enzymes ALT & AST
UrineBladder health
Kidney function

Moreover, due to the particularities of these ages (need of evaluating multiple cardiovascular risk factors – possible nutritional inadequacy – issues in concentration – risk of hair loss, etc) the following additional tests are recommended :

Fibrinogen (Fibr)

Coagulation factor, responsible for the healing of injured vessels. Used to detect intravascular inflammation and assessed as an independent cardiovascular risk factor. 

Homocysteine ​​(HCY)

An independent cardiovascular risk factor, which is also related to thrombophylia. High values are observed in obese people, smokers, as well as people with the frequent MHTFR C677T gene mutation.

Creatine phosphokinase (CPK)

An enzyme found in muscle cells, used as a marker of muscle strain from exercise and ligaments injuries. The test may provide additional information for autoimmune diseases, in cases where muscular pains persist without obvious reasons.

Iron (Fe) and Ferritin (Ferr)

Tests are performed to assess the adequacy of dietary iron, and detect possible malabsorption problems (celiac desease, gastritis, etc). Potential iron deficiency causes anemia and fatigue symptoms, and can also cause general behaviour change, poor hair quality (and loss), as well as low athletic performance

Thyroid hormone (TSH)

Hormone that regulates thyroid gland function and the metabolic rate of the whole body. Prolonged thyroid disfunction is often related to fatigue, sleeping disorders, over sweating, obesity, lack of concentration, behavioural problems and psychological disorders. Preventive thyroid screening is even more valuable to people with family history in thyroid disorders .

Vitamin B12

Critical substance for the maintenance of the nervous system and mental functions. It also has a vital  role in the protection of the cardiovascular system. Malnutrition, malabsorption or excessive needs, are the most common reasons of vitamin deficiency for the men of this age.  

Vitamin D3 (25-OH-D3)

Critical substance for calcium uptake from bones and vital substance for immune system integrity. Surveys show that  as much as 80% of the  general polulation show D3 deficiency. Deficiency at this age can cause problems to immunity, wellness of the body and rarely problems in the skeleton.

OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL BLOOD SCREENIG TESTS 

Sexually transmitted diseases

  • Hepatitis B – C, HIV I / II
  • Ureoplasma – Mycoplasma – Chlamydia -Chronic infections causing infertility
  • Common Microbes – Fungus
  • HPV detection – typing Wart virus

Trace elements

  • Calcium index of metabolism – endocrine diseases
  • Magnesium vital for muscle function – wellness
  • Zinc regulates immune system – maintains hair on scalp

Cardiovascular Danger

  • CVD-4 (MTHFR, V-Leiden, Prothrombin, b-Fibrinogen) Thrombophilic genomic factors in cases of familial history of stroke
