What Can Biophysical250 Tell You?
(excerpted from Biophysical Corp)
Make your next annual physical a Biophysical™.
Millions of adults—even those who appear healthy—live with undetected illnesses. In the U.S. alone, 1.4 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Another 17 million will suffer an adverse cardiovascular event. The good news is that the sooner specific diseases and medical conditions are detected; the sooner—and more effectively—they can be treated. The Biophysical250 health assessment gives you information to help make decisions that can impact your health and change your life.
Biophysical250 surveys the biomarkers in your blood that could indicate many conditions and diseases including:
- Cardiovascular disease (such as risk for heart attack and stroke)
- Cancer (including breast, colon, liver, ovarian, prostate and pancreatic)
- Metabolic disorders (such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome)
- Autoimmune disease (including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus)
- Viral and bacterial diseases (such as mononucleosis and pneumonia)
- Hormonal imbalance (including menopause, testosterone deficiency, thyroid deficiency)
- Nutritional status (such as vitamin deficiencies, protein deficiencies)
Biophysical250 Autoimmune Disease Biomarkers
The immune system protects the body from potentially harmful substances such as microorganisms, toxins and cancer cells. Autoimmune disorders develop when the immune system destroys normal body tissues, resulting in the destruction of one or more types of body tissues, abnormal growth of an organ, or changes in organ function. Biophysical250 tests numerous biomarkers that can indicate the presence of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Biophysical250 Cancer Biomarkers
Cancer involves the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that have mutated from normal tissues. This growth can kill when these cells prevent normal function of vital organs or spread throughout the body, damaging essential systems. Certain cancers are frequently associated with specific serum biomarkers. Biophysical250 includes biomarkers to test for several types of cancer, including breast, colon, liver, ovarian, prostate and pancreatic.
Biophysical250 Cardiovascular Biomarkers
Cardiovascular refers to the heart (cardio) and blood vessels (vascular). Heart disease is any disorder that affects the heart's ability to function normally. The most common cause of heart disease is narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart itself. A number of biomarkers are associated with the process and effects of cardiovascular disease, which include heart attack and stroke.
Biophysical Cell Signaling Biomarkers
Immunity, inflammation and the production of new blood cells are mediated by the complex interaction of a number of serum biomarkers called cytokines. They are elevated in processes relating to host disease and repair. Biomarker250 includes numerous biomarkers to test cell signaling function.
Biophysical250 Diabetes and other Metabolic Disorder Biomarkers
Diabetes is metabolic disorder and a lifelong disease marked by high levels of sugar in the blood. It can be caused by too little insulin (a hormone produced by the pancreas to regulate blood sugar), resistance to insulin, or both. Pre-diabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but are not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. People who have pre-diabetes are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Biophysical250 can indicate the presence of pre-diabetes, type I diabetes and type II diabetes. Biophysical250 also includes biomarkers that can identify other metabolic disorders, such as metabolic syndrome and add info here.
Biophysical250 Hematology Biomarkers
Hematologic abnormalities can reflect problems with fluid volume (such as dehydration) or loss of blood. They can also reflect acute or chronic infection, allergies, anemia, or problems with blood clotting.
Biophysical250 Hormonal Imbalance Biomarkers
Endocrine glands produce and secrete hormones into the blood or lymph systems. These glands include the thyroid, parathyroid, hypothalamus, pineal, pituitary, adrenal, islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, and the gonads. The effects of these hormones may affect one organ or tissue, or the entire body. Biophysical250 includes biomarkers that can indicate hormonal imbalance such as menopause, testosterone deficiency and thyroid deficiency.
Biophysical250 Immune/Inflammation Biomarkers
The immune system consists of certain types of white blood cells, antibodies and other proteins that protect the body from potentially harmful substances. The inflammatory response is part of the immune reaction. It occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat or any other cause.
Biophysical250 Infectious Disease Biomarkers
Bacterial, parasitic and viral infections can be acute or chronic and affect every organ system. The causative agent of an infectious disease is often identified through the specific antibodies raised by the immune system to the infections organism. Biophysical250 tests for a multitude of infectious disease, including mononucleosis, pneumonia, chlamydia, pertussis, Lyme disease, hepatitis, herpes, Epstein-Barr, tuberculosis and human papilloma.
Biophysical250 Nutritional Status Biomarkers
Malnutrition means a person's body is not getting enough nutrients. The condition may result from an inadequate or unbalanced diet, digestive difficulties, absorption problems, or other medical conditions. Biophysical250 evaluates nutritional status, including vitamin and protein deficiencies and can indicate the presence of nutrition-related medical conditions such as celiac disease.
Biophysical Organ System Biomarkers
Major organ function is most comprehensively evaluated with blood tests assessing the levels of serum biomarkers that are regulated or synthesized by the various organs. In many cases, specific biomarkers are associated with the cause of impaired function.
Biophysical Osteoarthritis Biomarkers
Osteoarthritis is one of the most common types of arthritis. Arthritis involves inflammation of one or more joints and the breakdown of cartilage. Cartilage normally protects the joint, allowing for smooth movement. Cartilage also absorbs shock when pressure is placed on the joint, such as when you walk or otherwise bear weight. Without the usual amount of cartilage, the bones rub together, causing pain, swelling, stiffness and the formation of bone spurs. Biophysical250 includes several biomarkers to indicate the presence of osteoarthritis.
* Your physician may have to order your Biophysical250 and/or receive your Biophysical250 results. Some states permit consumers to order laboratory tests, but require that laboratory test results be sent to licensed physicians. Other states require that licensed physicians order laboratory tests and that the laboratory test results go to a licensed physician. Our customer service representatives will be able to tell you if your state requires your physician to order your Biophysical250, receive your Biophysical250 results or both. If your physician is required to receive your Biophysical250 results, your results will be forwarded by private courier, with a signature required, to the physician whom you designate.
Disclaimer: Biophysical250 results do not constitute a medical opinion or advice. These results are not medical care, treatment, a treatment recommendation or a diagnosis. Communication with medical professionals employed by Biophysical Corporation about the Biophysical250 or its results does not establish a physician-patient relationship.
