What are the Medical Cornerstones?
We group a whole variety of tests into four main categories, or what we like to call the medical cornerstones:
- Nutritional Health
- Hormone Health
- Cardiovascular Health
- Metabolic Health
- With supplemental categories being added such as Blood Type and urine panel for common toxins
By grouping symptoms and tests in these four areas, we’re able to consider a wide range of chronic illnesses, diseases and conditions that prevent long, healthy lives.
Blueprint Diagnostics offers comprehensive test panels and biomarkers that uncover hidden risk factors to prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and related chronic diseases to ensure more effective treatment for the patient.
Iron metabolism, vitamins, and mineral deficiencies from poor dietary choices can be expensive to manage when allowed to progress such as Iron, Vitamin D, Folate and Vitamin B12 deficiencies.
Electrolytes, renal, liver and pancreatic abnormalities can cause serious dysfunction to organ function, which may be contributing to a host of symptoms and underlying disease states.
The conventional group of tests to determine risk is a good start, but when normal can miss 50% of all heart attacks and strokes. When combined with apolipoproteins and lipoproteins a far better prediction of health risk can be determined.
As natural response to stress or injury, inflammation biomarkers reveals the extent of endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress occurring in the blood vessels.
Glucose & Insulin Control
Multiple biomarkers can accurately detect the stage of progression towards diabetes and level of function of pancreatic beta cell function, which may reduce or eliminate a patient’s need for insulin.
Hormone balance is essential for regulating physical, mental, and metabolic health. A comprehensive hormone assessment is essential to managing weight and serves as a powerful early indicator of insulin resistance.
Antibodies that respond to the body’s own tissue can have deleterious effects on energy levels, gastrointestinal health, immunity, and brain function.
