ION Profiles - Blood & Urine
Individual Optimal Nutrition
What is the ION SM Profile?
The Metametrix ION (Individual • Optimal • Nutrition) Profile is the most comprehensive profile available, revealing nutritional deficiencies, metabolic dysfunction, and toxicities. Combining profiles of organic acids, amino acids, fatty acids, nutrient and toxic elements, and antioxidant vitamins, the ION Profile represents your best testing value. It measures more than 100 components, integrating them into a complete picture of your individual biochemistry.
What is the Cardio/ION Profile?
The Metametrix Cardio/ION (Individual • Optimal • Nutrition) Profile is a combination of nutritional analyses that measures levels of organic acids, fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Over time, functional nutritional inadequacies can result in a variety of chronic health conditions. The Cardio/ION Profile can help determine the basis for these chronic health conditions.
TRIAD Bloodspot Profile
The TRIAD Bloodspot Profile gives your patients an easy-to-use option to collect their specimens at home—no blood draw required! With simple finger sticks and an overnight urine collection, the TRIAD Bloodspot Profile gives you the same quantitative information as the TRIAD Profile.
Using the synergetic power of the Organix, Amino Acids, and Allergix IgG4 Food Antibodies testing, faster and more effective results are produced. Because targeted, individualized interventions based on the TRIAD Bloodspot Profile can be more cost-effective than simple protocol-based treatment plans, the TRIAD Bloodspot Profile represents real value.
Nutrient & Toxic Elements - Blood
Toxic elements and selenium are measured in whole blood while major and other trace nutrient elements are measured in erythrocytes. Erythrocyte concentrations are good indicators of body pools of essential elements such as magnesium, potassium, chromium, and zinc. Various regulatory agencies have deemed whole blood to be the preferred specimen for assessment of toxic elements exposure to aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury.
Estronex Profile - Urine
Assess Risk for Estrogen Sensitive Cancers
The Estronex Profile measures six important estrogen metabolites and their ratios to help women, and even men, assess whether he or she is at risk of developing estrogen sensitive cancers.
Estrogen sensitive cancers include uterine, ovarian, cervical, prostate, and even head and neck cancers. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the US during 2010; about 1,970 new cases are expected in men. Avoid chances of becoming a statistic and assess estrogen levels and decrease risk with the Estronex Profile.
IGF-1 Profile - Serum
Insulin-Like Growth Factor Type 1
The Insulin-Like Growth Factor Type 1 (IGF-1) test measures serum levels of IGF-1 (also called Somatomedin C), an anabolic hormone produced in the liver and essential for maintenance of muscle tissue. Serum levels of IGF-1 vary depending on age, sex, growth hormone secretion, liver function, and nutritional status. Levels below normal are associated with chronic stress and fibromyalgia.
DNA/Oxidative Stress Marker - Urine
DNA/Oxidative Stress Marker
The interaction of reactive oxygen species with DNA and RNA produces oxidation products of these base rings. DNA repair enzymes must remove the damaged bases in order to maintain viability. Oxidation of guanosine produces 8-hydroxy-2’-deoxyguanosine (8OHdG). The concentration of 8OHdG in urine has been shown to be an accurate measure of the rate of polynucleotide oxidative damage. Elevated 8OHdG is a sign that antioxidant nutrient intake may need to be increased. Toxicants and lifestyle stress factors may contribute to increased oxidative challenge.
Male Hormones Profile – Serum
The Metametrix Male Hormones Profile provides clinicians with a powerful tool for ensuring optimal male hormone balance and metabolism. The Male Hormones Profile uniquely allows for evaluation of both total testosterone and free, bio-available testosterone (free androgen index) with inclusion of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Assessment of androgen metabolism is also enhanced with measurement of estradiol, demonstrating the degree of aromatase activity that may influence prostate health. In addition, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is included with this profile offering a marker for the impact of male hormones on the prostate gland.
GI Effects Complete Profile - Stool
The Latest Advancement in Stool Analysis
GI Effects is unlike any other stool analysis profile, going beyond the standard parameters for identifying gastrointestinal disorders.
The GI Effects Profile uses DNA analysis to identify microbiota including anaerobes, a previously immeasurable area of the gut environment. DNA assessment is specific and accurate, avoids the pitfalls of sample transport, reports results as specific numbers, and is more sensitive than classic laboratory methods.
Organix Comprehensive Profile - Urine
Go Beyond the Symptoms with an Organic Acid Test
The Organix provides a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes and the efficiency of metabolic function. Identifying metabolic blocks or problems with detoxification, gut dysbiosis, or oxidative stress that can be treated nutritionally allows for individual tailoring of interventions.
Allergix IgG4 Food Antibodies 90 - Serum
IgG4 Delayed Food Reactions
IgG4 antibodies are associated with non-atopic or “delayed” food reactions that can worsen or contribute to many different health problems. These reactions are considered the most common form of immunologically mediated food intolerance.
