Metabolic Profile – Molecular Metabolic Profile
An accurate representation of the Metabolism through measurement of the body’s metabolic acids. It provides us with important information about the gastrointestinal function, the cellular energy production, the metabolic and digestive disorders, and the deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids. It also analyzes the levels of specific of neurotransmitters and mitochondrial function.
The Metabolism is the set of biochemical reactions that take place in the cells of living organisms.
These structural biochemical reactions determine the energy at a cellular level, but also the state of function in tissues and organs.
Any deviation, when in fact it occurs for a long time, is expressed in the form of Diseases such as:
Autoimmune Diseases, Chronic Diseases, Cardiac Problems, Diabetes, Neurological Diseases, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Gastrointestinal Diseases, Chronic Fatigue, Obesity, Endocrinological Problems.
The Metabolic Profile examines 39 important factors (organic acids) that play a major role in the metabolic process.
The indicators that can detect the poor absorption of food and nutrients and the proper functioning of the intestinal barrier are measured. It detects chronic digestive problems, common causes of nutritional deficiencies, intestinal or stomach upsets, fungal bacteria overgrowth.
Production of energy
Indicators that give us information about the cellular energy cycle (Krebs) are measured. This cycle provides the body with its basic energy needs, converting 90% of food energy into cellular energy. Disorders at this level are responsible for, elevated cholesterol levels, chronic fatigue, premature cellular degradation and aging.
The metabolites of neurotransmitters, that serve as an important diagnostic indicator of abnormal metabolism, are evaluated. Substances such as serotonin, adrenaline, dopamine, can significantly affect the response to stress, emotional health, mental health and sleep.
An analysis of the metabolites of amino acids that require vitamins and minerals is perfomed, so that possible deficiencies in vitamins B6, B12 and C, magnesium, copper, iron and several amino acids can be detected. This test provides us with an assessment of nutritional adequacy and covers a wide range of vitamins, co-enzymes, trace elements and other nutrients.
The toxic load that has accumulated in the body is detected by measuring the products excreted during the metabolic process.
The assessment of Organic Acids in urine provides a broad overview of the body’s function. It offers maximum diagnostic accuracy, depicting the Metabolic pathways and controlling the mechanisms that help maintain the proper functioning of the Organization.
The Metabolic Analysis Profile is an important clinical tool for detecting imbalances that are likely to cause Metabolic, Nutritional and Neurological Disorders. With the help of these results, the treating physician can draw up a personalized treatment in order to restore optimal metabolic health.
The test results are completed in two to three weeks.
Specific tests make sense and should only be used in combination with other standardized medical data and elements (e.g. medical history, symptoms, clinical examination, test results, etc.).
