These tests are required if you want to test for inflammation in your body. These tests check for systemic or whole body inflammation.
Inflammation is something that you don’t want going on in your body. High levels of inflammation in the body increase your risk of developing almost every major disease including autoimmune disease, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and much more.
Inflammation has also been associated with accelerated aging!
No matter how you look at it, it’s not something you want in your body.
The good news is that you can test for inflammation in your body by looking at some simple blood tests.
These blood tests help identify the presence of both acute and chronic inflammation but they don’t tell you WHY the inflammation is present.
These tests are so important that I order them in just about every patient that I see. They are especially helpful if you have thyroid problems or just want to stay in optimal health.
These tests include:
– Antibody testing (optional)
– IL6, TNFa, and fibrinogen (optional)
Learn why these tests are so important and what they mean for you in this video.
