Vitamin B12Neurologiac & Cardiovascular protection
Vitamine 25 (OH) D3Immune system support - Bone calcium uptake

Cardiovascular risk markers (HDL cholesterol – homocysteine ​​and fibrinogen) are of limited interest in women of these ages, and are therefore omitted unless there is another reason.

The additional selected screening tests though for the age, are :

Electrolytes – Sodium (Na +), Potassium (K +) and Chlorine (Cl-)

The most important salts of the body regulated by kidneys. Impaired renal function, medications – cardiac drugs, dehydration, loss of thirst sense, may alter seriously electrolyte levels. High or low levels of electolytes cause confusion, drowsiness, degradation in mental functions, disruption of cardiac function.

Calcium (Ca), Phosphorus (P) and Magnesium (Mg)

Trace elements with high impact on the overall health. Nutrition problems, malabsorption, medication, can significantly alter their levels. Μetabolic disorders, hormonal imbalance, and chronic deaseases may underline also ubnormal levels in trace elements. Among the most common situations in elderly persons are muscle cramps (magnesium deficiency), and high calcium levels due to chronic vitamin D deficiency.

Total Proteins, Albumin and Globulins

Mainly used to evaluate the proper nutrition, hepatic and renal function and the overall health of the immune system.
