  2. Heart Health Precision: ApoB and Lp(a) provide superior heart disease risk assessment, revealing hidden dangers that cholesterol tests miss.
  3. Early Diabetes Detection: Fasting insulin testing uncovers potential diabetes risk before blood sugar spikes, allowing for proactive prevention, instead of traditional blood glucose tests which often tell the truth too late. 
  4. Essential Vitamins & Minerals: Our panel assesses Vitamin D, B vitamins, and iron; rarely screened in conventional screenings, but are crucial for overall health, energy, and disease prevention.
  5. Superior cancer screening: Through our partnership with Lucence, we offer liquid biopsies with higher accuracy and reduced false positives compared to traditional methods, leading to earlier detection and less anxiety - as an exclusive add on to our flagship panel.
  6. Curated for Impact: Mito Health prioritizes biomarkers with the strongest links to longevity optimization, excluding less informative, general screening tests.

Longevity Cardiac Biomarkers - ApoB, Lp(a)

ApoB provides a superior assessment of heart disease risk compared to traditional cholesterol tests.

  • Traditional cholesterol panels focus on LDL-C ("bad" cholesterol), but this metric can be misleading. LDL particles vary in size, and smaller, denser ones are more likely to infiltrate artery walls and initiate plaque buildup.
  • ApoB offers a direct count of atherogenic (plaque-forming) particles. Since each ApoB molecule is attached to a single LDL particle (or other harmful types), your ApoB level reveals the true number of potential threats in your bloodstream.

Lp(a) is crucial for understanding your inherited heart disease risk.

  • Lp(a), or lipoprotein(a), is a genetically determined factor. It resembles an LDL particle but carries additional proteins that promote inflammation and blood clotting within arteries.
  • High Lp(a) levels significantly increase heart disease risk, even with good traditional cholesterol numbers. Your genes largely determine your Lp(a), making it essential to know your levels, especially with a family history of cardiovascular problems.

Proactive Diabetes Biomarkers - Fasting Insulin

Uncover Hidden Diabetes Risk with Insulin Testing

Don't wait for blood sugar spikes to signal trouble! Insulin testing offers an early warning system for potential diabetes, outperforming traditional methods that only react once diabetes has already taken hold. By measuring your insulin levels, you can identify subtle changes in your body's ability to process sugar – even before pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes fully develop. This knowledge empowers you to take proactive steps to protect your long-term health.

Understanding Insulin Resistance

Insulin acts like a key, unlocking your cells to absorb glucose (sugar) from your bloodstream. In the early stages of diabetes, your cells become slightly resistant to insulin's effects. To compensate, your body produces more insulin to maintain normal blood sugar. This increased insulin level is a red flag, signaling the potential for future diabetes.

Why Test Your Insulin Levels?

Traditional diabetes screening focuses on blood glucose levels. However, by the time blood sugar is elevated, some damage may have already begun. Unfortunately, conventional health screening relies on elevated blood glucose to diagnose diabetes, which often comes too late. Insulin testing provides a window into your metabolic health, catching insulin resistance early. This allows you to make lifestyle changes that can prevent or delay the onset of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Vitamins and Minerals - Vitamin D, Vitamin B, Folate, Iron

Vitamin D: The Essential Sunshine Vitamin

Most of us lack sufficient vitamin D, despite its wide-ranging benefits. Beyond its well-known role in calcium absorption and bone health, vitamin D acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent, bolsters your immune system, and supports healthy muscle and nerve function. Research even suggests it may help protect against age-related cognitive decline.

Iron: Fueling Your Energy and Performance

Iron deficiency is a widespread issue. While severe cases can lead to anemia (low hemoglobin), even mild deficiency impairs your body's ability to transport oxygen effectively. This can lead to fatigue, reduced exercise performance, and a general feeling of low energy.

Measuring various iron markers – plasma iron, total iron-binding capacity, iron saturation, and ferritin (your body's iron stores) – provides a comprehensive picture of your iron status, allowing you to optimize your levels for peak performance..

B Vitamins: Powerhouses for Body and Mind

Vitamin B12 and folate are indispensable nutrients with far-reaching impacts on your health.  Vitamin B12 is vital for maintaining healthy nerves, producing DNA, and creating red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout your body. Folate is essential for DNA synthesis, cellular repair, and works in tandem with B12 for proper red blood cell production and iron utilization. Deficiencies in either of these B vitamins can have serious consequences for your physical and mental well-being.

Exclusive kidney biomarkers - Cystatin-C, Homocysteine

Cystatin-C: A Superior Marker for Kidney Health

  • Beyond Creatinine Limitations: Creatinine levels fluctuate with muscle mass, potentially masking kidney issues, especially in athletes or those with variations in body composition.
  • Produced by all cells at a constant rate, Cystatin-C offers a more reliable snapshot of kidney function, regardless of muscle mass or diet.
  • Early detection of kidney dysfunction with Cystatin-C allows for prompt interventions that can protect long-term kidney health and overall well-being.

Elevated Homocysteine: A Red Flag for Your Health

  • Heart Health Risk: High homocysteine levels are associated with an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
  • Bone Health Concerns: Elevated homocysteine can contribute to osteoporosis, increasing the risk of fractures.
  • Cognitive Decline Link: Research suggests a possible connection between high homocysteine levels and cognitive decline, including Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
  • Vitamin Deficiency Indicator: Elevated homocysteine may signal deficiencies in B vitamins (B6, B12, and folate), which are crucial for proper homocysteine breakdown.
  • Managing homocysteine levels through lifestyle changes and potential supplementation can help reduce your risk of chronic diseases and support your overall well-being.

Conventional health screenings often overlook valuable tools like homocysteine and Cystatin-C, which hold promise in detecting a wide range of health concerns. Our flagship model, however, incorporates these advanced biomarkers by default, offering a more comprehensive and proactive approach to your well-being.

Understanding Our Biomarker Choices

The Mito Health Flagship panel focuses on providing the most valuable longevity insights. Here's why we don't include some commonly found, but less impactful, tests:

  • Body composition (BIA scales): Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) scales estimate body composition less accurately than DEXA scans. Their results fluctuate with hydration and other factors. DEXA scans provide the gold-standard for body composition analysis, including crucial insights into visceral fat distribution.
  • ECG (Electrocardiogram): ECGs are valuable in specific contexts but may have limited utility for healthy individuals without symptoms. Some conditions only show on an ECG during exertion or when symptoms are present.
  • Chest X-Rays:  Routine chest X-rays have limitations for lung cancer screening and tuberculosis detection, especially in healthy, low-risk populations. Chest X-rays are not ideal for early detection of lung cancers, which tend to start small. High-risk individuals should opt for low-dose CT scans for more effective screening.
  • Creatine Kinase (CK): CK detects muscle damage, useful in diagnosing injuries, extreme exercise-related conditions, or heart attacks – situations usually accompanied by noticeable symptoms.  
  • Hepatitis, VDRL screening Hepatitis screening is crucial for high-risk individuals, those with family history, or those showing signs of liver damage. Similarly, VDRL testing for syphilis is most relevant for those at risk. For low-risk individuals, these tests might not be the most impactful use of resources. Prioritising biomarkers with broader health implications could be a more strategic approach for overall health assessment.
  • Conventional cancer markers often trigger unnecessary worry due to their limitations. These markers, though elevated in cancer, can also be high in benign conditions. For example, a common marker like CEA has low accuracy, only slightly increasing the true chance of having cancer. Our focus is on proactive solutions.

    We partner with Lucence to leverage their cutting-edge liquid biopsy test, LiquidHALLMARK® at exclusive rates. This painless blood test offers highly accurate early cancer detection through ctDNA analysis.
