AML WEIGHTLOSS PANEL PLUS

Sometimes, there is a medical cause for weight gain or the inability to lose weight. Similar to the AML Weight loss Panel, the AML Weight loss Panel Plus provides insight on the inner workings of your body’s foundational biomarkers, however, this panel differs in that it includes three additional evaluations (Estradiol, Testosterone Free, Testosterone Total) to dig deeper into how your body is responding to its current normalities.

Maintaining Testosterone levels is crucial in building muscle and losing fat in both men and women. Lack of estrogen may cause the body to use starches and blood sugar less effectively, which would increase fat storage and make it harder to lose weight. Consult with your physician to understand what course of action is best for your weight loss solution.

Panel Breakdown
  • CBC with Diff -measures the quantity of all the different types of cells in the blood, and can provide a good indication of various nutrient concerns such as iron and the b vitamins
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel - used as a wide-ranging screening tool to assess organ function and check for illnesses such as diabetes, liver disease, and kidney disease
  • Lipid Panel - measures fats and fatty substances that are important elements of cells used as a source of energy by your body. Helps to assess risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Thyroid Panel - evaluates thyroid function and/or help diagnose hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism due to various thyroid disorders
  • Insulin - a major fat storing hormone that helps transport glucose, the body's main source of energy, from the blood to within cells
  • Estradiol - is produced by the ovaries and known as the "active" estrogen—the one that can achieve the fullest range of estrogen effects because it goes out there in our tissues and sockets into estrogen receptors and causes estrogen effects
  • Hemoglobin A1C - assists in identifying those at an increased risk of developing diabetes. Also used to monitor a person's diabetes and to aid in treatment decisions
  • Testosterone, Free & Total -  a hormone (commonly produced in males, but is also in females in small amounts) that affects sexual features and development. Determines the level of testosterone (free and total) in your system. In men, it is made in large amounts by the testicles. In both men and women, testosterone is made in small amounts by the adrenal glands, and in women, by the ovaries
