What the Comprehensive Wellness Panel Will Tell You

This comprehensive wellness panel for women analyzes your blood to help you understand your risk for diabetes, kidney & thyroid disease.

  • Kidney function: measures the creatinine level in the blood, as well as the rate blood is filtered through the kidneys (called eGFR). Creatinine is a waste product that's filtered out by the kidneys. Elevated levels of creatinine might indicate that the kidneys are not functioning as well as they should to filter waste.
  • Thyroid Function screening determines the level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in your blood. TSH is the key indicator for how well the thyroid gland functions. Abnormal TSH levels can cause the thyroid gland to malfunction and lead to a variety of health issues.
  • The A1c screening measures average glucose (blood sugar) level in the blood over the previous 2-3 months, which is an indicator for diabetes risk.
  • C-Reactive protein: this high-sensitivity C-reactive protein screening measures the level of CRP in the blood. Higher levels of CRP indicates possible inflammation in the body, which can be a marker for cardiovascular disease or other problems.

About The Conditions Included in the Wellness Panel

  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects approximately 14% of people in the U.S., and the primary causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. Kidney disease will often develop without any symptoms. When detected early, CKD can be slowed through medication or lifestyle changes. Each year, kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer.1 Click here to review the risk factors.
  • Thyroid Disease: the thyroid is the largest endocrine gland in the body. It produces two hormones: T3 and T4, which control the rate at which your body burns energy and responds to stress hormones. Thyroid disease affects mood, metabolism, heart rate, and cause weight gain or loss. Click here to review the risk factors.
  • A1c screening is the most widely used tool to screen for diabetes risk. Diabetes occurs when the body does not produce or properly use insulin (the hormone that converts food into energy). The most common type of diabetes is Type 2, in which the body does not use insulin properly, called insulin resistance.

Diabetes is widespread—9% of adults in the U.S. have diabetes, and over 20% are not aware they have it.2 Diabetes puts people at a higher risk for stroke, heart disease, vision decline, and circulation problems.

  • C-Reactive protein (CRP), a by-product of inflammation in the body, has been linked by research to heart disease. When plaque forms in the arteries, it causes injury to the arteries, generating an inflammatory response, which causes the release of CRP into the blood. There are no risk factors for C-Reactive protein; a CRP screening helps to evaluate a person's overall risk for cardiovascular disease. Risk factors include diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, smoking, and family history of stroke or heart disease.

Comprehensive Wellness Panel for Women Screening Details

  • Kidney function results of this wellness panel have two measurements: one is the creatinine level in your blood, measured in mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter). The second result you will receive is the eGFR (Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate) which measures the rate that blood is passing through the filters in the kidneys (called glomeruli). The normal range for these measurements is different for men and women, so gender is factored into the result expected for normal kidney function.
  • Thyroid function screening for this wellness panel looks at two ways your thyroid can malfunction: Hyperthyroidism (too much thyroid hormone is produced in the body) and Hypothyroidism (not enough thyroid hormone is produced).
  • The A1c screening measures the average blood sugar level for the past two to three months. The American Diabetes Association recommends that the A1c test be the primary screening tool used to diagnose prediabetes, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes.
  • The high-sensitivity C-reactive protein screening for this wellness panel detects even small changes in the C-reactive protein levels in the blood. This is important when evaluating a person's overall risk for developing cardiovascular disease.
