Do You Present Symptoms of A Disease?


According American Cancer Association shown as an example due to its reliable statistics, more than 1.500 Americans die from cancer a day, which is the second most common cause of mortality in this country. Although symptoms of cancer are thought to be invisible in some types until it progresses, they can be found by a physician. Everybody may contract cancer but majority of the cases (77%) are 55 years old and over. Although some types of cancer are more fatal than others, the rate of survival of five years has improved by 18% since 1977 through early diagnosis, more efficient treatment and advantages.

The primary biomarkers investigated in the blood may provide significant clues for early diagnosis of some common types of cancer (colon, liver, lung, small cell lung cancer, breast, ovarian, testicles, prostate, and pancreas). They are not used as a Screening test because healthy individuals may also have somewhat high values. They are used by the physician in suspicious cases. The inflammation and dilated blood vessels found in the presence of cancer are referred to as "secondary" biomarkers. Make sure you review all outcomes with your physician. Consult your physician to be informed your risk of cancer.


Do you have shortness of breath or a chest pain when you walk or go up the stairs? Or do you get quickly tired or sweat and feel exhausted? These may be related to narrowed or obstructed heart veins and result in a heart attack, angina or paralysis. The cardiovascular disease is the globally most common cause of mortality.

Early diagnosis is the key to preventing onset of a cardiovascular disease. Cardiologists do not consider sufficient measuring cholesterol, HDL and LDL or viewing an image that includes only some part of the cardiovascular risk. Subgroup cholesterol/lipid profile, PLAC test, and other different tests allow a detailed analysis of many factors that may affect sensitivity to a heart attack and stroke, and completes this picture.

Sexual Function

Almost everyone becomes worried about their sexual drive for a temporary or longer period of time. Reduced sexual drive is only a natural consequence of aging process for most of the people. But for some, changing sexual drive may indicate hormonal unbalance or other diseases

This can be found by an extensive improved health assessment, and tests that help interpret the symptoms of metabolic function and sexual function disorders. Change in hormones is reviewed. This is a strong instrument that you and your doctor may use as part of your general health strategy.

Energy / Fatigue

Do you feel tired or drowsy? The symptoms of tiredness may vary from person to person and therefore differ. Some types are due to an underlying disease; however a more common type of fatigue is that fatigue is a transient feeling. Fatigue and low levels of energy may also present as weight gain or changing libido. It is perhaps easy to ignore such symptoms just saying “Ah, I’m getting old” but the other symptoms of low energy levels and fatigue should not be ignored.

The tests focused on this involve numerous underlying metabolic functions and hormonal state. It can be used as part of general health strategy and provide you and your physician with a strong tool. Have these tests as instructed by your physician and restore your normal energy levels.

Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes Period

Diabetes - 25,8 million of Americans (more than 8% of the population) are diabetic – it has reached epidemic proportions in the USA, American Diabetes Association (ADA) reports that blood-glucose level of 79 million Americans is higher than normal however it is not high enough to diagnose diabetes, i.e. there is pre-diabetes.

Obesity and pre-diabetes have increasingly become an important problem in the country too.

Pre-diabetes often causes long-term damages, lasting in 3 to 10 years. Diagnosed pre-diabetes does not mean that diabetes is inevitable. Pre-diabetes can be treated and reversible.

The standard tests, which are used to identify the risk of one individual despite prevalence of pre-diabetes, reflect only some part of the table. An extensive blood test goes beyond standard A1C and fasting plasma glucose tests, providing a profound view. A more detailed analysis for the risk of diabetes can be performed using blood-based markers associated with pre-diabetic conditions including leptine, adiponectin, and C-peptide.

General Health

There are several good health tips like "Do this exercise for backache; Try that food supplement; Eat fruits and vegetables to have proper nutrition and prolong your life”, however you may have some problems which can’t be revealed by conventional screenings. The adverse processes in your body may be overlooked if no personal assessment has been made for you. If no symptoms are apparent and you are only trying to be proactive for your health, an individual-focused healthy living plan is still needed to avoid any diseases.

The tests and biochemical procedures-including testing the chemicals and proteins in you blood- planned only for you may reveal many potential problems or diseases.

Cardiovascular diseases (risk assessment for heart attack and paralysis) Hematology-blood diseases- (anemia, hemochromatosis) Cancer (breast, colon, liver, ovary, prostate and pancreas) Metabolic disorders (diabetes, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance and obesity) Endocrine (hormonal) problems (thyroid disease, parathyroid diseases, pituitary and adrenal glands diseases) Autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus) Immune system (decreased immune functions, chronic inflammation), Imbalance of sex hormones (menopause, testosterone deficiency) Nutrition (vitamin deficiencies, protein deficiency, fatty acid imbalance) Organ condition (liver, renal, pancreas, gastrointestinal and musculoskeletal system functions)

As a result, “personal health risk assessment” is intended to be free from unnecessary examinations and achieve a fully extensive evaluation.
