Blood is a treasure trove of information about an individual’s metabolism, physiology, and disease risk. We just need the right tools to dig up and appreciate the treasure.
A Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis (FBCA) provides those tools along with clinical guidance and support. FBCA evaluates each biomarker within an optimal range to identify early trends toward dysfunction and detects biomarker patterns that can help guide intervention and therapy.
Many of the basic blood chemistry tests described below are found on what is known as the Complete Metabolic Panel or CMP14. These include metabolic markers that reflect liver function/health, kidney function, gallbladder function, hydration, electrolyte balance, protein status, and more.
The Complete Blood Count (CBC) includes markers that reflect red and white blood function and characteristics.
Here is a quick rundown of biomarkers found in a basic blood chemistry panel and CBC.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that basic blood tests aren’t valued. These blood chemistry tests hold a ton of functional information on your patient’s journey towards or away from optimal health and should be a part of EVERY blood panel you run on your patients. Below are some biomarkers that you can find in a basic blood test to indicate overall health.
Below are some of the dysfunctions you can assess from looking at patterns between various biomarker results:
You can see that even basic blood chemistry is just the tip of the iceberg of a treasure trove of information about metabolism, physiology, and disease risk.
Functional blood chemistry analysis is vital to identifying and addressing early changes in metabolism before they progress into significant dysfunction or outright disease.
