A marker for diabetes, accelerated aging, early heart disease and obesity
Our strategy at Harding Medical Institute is to aggressively prevent serious and life-threatening illnesses such as diabetes from occurring. We utilize comprehensive, cutting edge blood analysis that can predict your risk of developing many diseases years before they happen. Because, diabetes can be delayed and even prevented by making changes to your lifestyle, optimizing hormone levels and early detection are the keys that can significantly lower your risk of developing the disease. A man’s risk of developing diabetes increases as Testosterone levels decrease with age, especially as abdominal fat rises due to changes in hormonal balance.
Every year the number of Americans at risk of developing type 2 diabetes is growing. Diabetes develops over many years in your body causing damage as it progresses years before it can be diagnosed with standard testing. However, this damage can be detected and prevented by measuring the levels of specific biomarkers in your blood—linked to the development of diabetes and obesity.
Determining A Person’s Risk Factors:
- PreDx Diabetes Risk Score
- C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
- Interleukin-2 Receptor (IL-2R)
Desensitization Of The Body To High Sugar:
Type 2 diabetes is a complicated metabolic condition in which your body is unable to properly metabolize sugar (glucose), a main source of fuel for your body for energy and growth. When you eat, your body breaks down food into a special sugar called glucose, which fuels the cells in your body. Critical to this process is insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your cells to take in glucose and use it for energy. If you have prediabetes, metabolic syndrome or diabetes, your body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t effectively use the insulin it does make. This deficiency or resistance to insulin causes glucose to build up in your bloodstream.
Chronic Buildup Of Glucose:
Chronically high glucose levels are harmful to the body and can eventually cause extensive damage to many of the body’s major organ systems. Therefore, it is no surprise that people with type 2 diabetes have double the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, or that diabetes is a leading cause of kidney failure, heart disease, nerve damage, and vision problems that can result in blindness. Obesity is linked to elevated insulin levels because high insulin levels block our bodies’ ability to use fat as fuel.
