Moreover, due to the particularities of these ages ( risk of prostate cancer – hormonal imbalance – erectile disfunction ) the following additional tests are recommended :

PSA (prostate antigen) and optionally free-PSA (free prostate antigen)

Used in early detection of prostate cancer, one of the most important causes of death among middle-aged and older men. Accurate assessment of PSA is succeded by comparing the results obtained yearly.

It is also used for the assessment of possible prostate infections (prostatitis) and benign hyperplasia.

Testosterone

The most important androgenic hormone, mainly used to detect  possible hormonally originated limited sexual mood. Also used as  a general body and psychology- wellness marker in middle aged men .

Sexually transmitted diseases

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

Trace elements

  • Sodium-potassium homeostatic agents – often affected by drugs
  • Calcium  index of metabolism – endocrine diseases
  • Magnetisium 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 with strokes – infarctions

Auto indices

  • RF, ANA  indicative tests for the detection of most autoimmune disorders / rheumatopathies

Tumour Markers

  • CEA, CA 19-9 gastrointestinal inflammation -neoplasm  index and also an index for other organs / systems
