The Metabolomic Profile from Doctor’s Data provides assessment of the likelihood of the development of Metabolic Syndrome in people who are at-risk. The Metabolomic Profile evaluates five biomarkers that may reflect a patient’s risk of developing Metabolic syndrome, which is identified by certain cardiometabolic risk factors, with insulin resistance and adiposity as its central features. Identification of individuals with metabolic syndrome is important due to its association with an increased risk of and Type II Diabetes mellitus and coronary heart disease.
Biomarkers included in this test:
* Hemoglobin A1c – this marker estimates the average blood glucose concentration for the 120-day life of the red blood cell.
* Insulin – an elevated insulin level is associated with insulin resistance and the development of Type II Diabetes.
* High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein – estimates the risk of cardiovascular disease.
* Leptin – this is a hormone produced by the cells of adipose tissue and provides a signal to the brain telling us that we have reached satiety when we are eating a meal. Elevated levels of leptin have been associated with excess adipose allowing for the receptors in the brain to develop leptin resistance resulting in a decreased satiety response to meals.
* Body Mass Index – this is a calculated marker based on height and weight.
Indications for the Metabolomic Profile:
* Increased waist size or Body Mass Index (BMI)
* High triglycerides
* High total cholesterol
* Low HDL cholesterol
* Fasting glucose greater than 100 mg/dL
* Family or personal history of cardiovascular disease or Type II Diabetes
