Your longevity guide to Cystatin C. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What is Cystatin C?

Cystatin C is a protein produced by cells throughout the body, particularly by cells in the kidneys. It serves as a natural inhibitor of enzymes called cysteine proteases, which play roles in various cellular processes. 

Cystatin C is a marker of kidney function that is more sensitive and accurate than creatinine—a waste product filtered by the kidneys—as it is less affected by factors like muscle mass. It helps doctors assess how well your kidneys are filtering waste from your blood.


How it’s related to your healthspan

Cystatin C levels are directly related to kidney function and overall healthspan. Healthy kidneys efficiently filter Cystatin C from the blood, maintaining stable levels. 

Elevated levels of Cystatin C indicate reduced kidney function, which can be a precursor to chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes, significantly impacting healthspan and quality of life. 

Monitoring Cystatin C levels can therefore help detect early kidney dysfunction and allow for interventions to slow disease progression, potentially extending overall healthspan and reducing the risk of associated conditions.

 

How to optimise your Cystatin C results

Optimising Cystatin C levels involves adopting habits that support kidney health and function. 

Maintaining a balanced diet low in sodium and processed foods helps reduce the strain on kidneys. Incorporating foods rich in antioxidants, such as berries, leafy greens, and nuts, can protect kidney cells from damage. Adequate hydration is crucial for optimal kidney function, so aim to drink plenty of water throughout the day. 

Managing blood pressure and blood sugar levels through diet, exercise, and medication if necessary, helps prevent kidney damage. Regular monitoring of Cystatin C levels through medical check-ups allows for early intervention if kidney function starts to decline.
