OPTIMAL HEALTHSTAT TEST

  17 Tests to evaluate your health and need for lifestyle changes

1.  Adrenal (Salinity)

Early Adrenal fatigue can sometimes manifest with high salinity (sodium) content in urine.  Advanced stages of Adrenal fatigue can be shown as low sodium levels.  The Adrenal Salinity Test can test for both high and low levels.

2.  Indican Test

This test measures the amount of indican in the urine.  The putrefaction of undigested foods within the bowels creates indican.  High levels of indican can indicate many conditions, including the presence of undigested foods, small intestine obstruction, diminished bile flow and Stomach disorders.

3.  Free Radical Test

Free radicals are formed with almost every biochemical reaction in the body.  Damage from free radicals can lead to cellular degeneration that may result in allergies, arthritis, fatigue and many other conditions.  High free radical levels can eventually contribute to the onset of cancer.

4.  Vitamin C Test 

This urine test measures for the deficiency of Vitamin C.  This vitamin is crucial to the health of the immune system, in the formation of connective tissue, and is essential for the cardiovascular system.  It is also a very powerful antioxidant. 

5.  Calcium Test

This test measures the level of calcium in your urine.  Calcium is essential for many cellular functions including blood coagulation balance, lactation, activating enzymes and for the function of nerves and muscles. 

6.  Nitric Oxide Test

This test determines the level of nitric oxide saliva with the use of a reagent strip.  Nitric Oxide is a naturally produced factor along the blood stream walls (endothelium).  It is a cardio-protective factor that promotes vascular wellness and better performance from the same amount of oxygen use.  Nitric Oxide will rise and fall throughout the day;  therefore, the challenge is to maintain a consistent elevated state by incorporating plant-based foods into your diet.

7.  Computerized Body Composition Analysis

The Bodystat®1500 is a Bio-impedance Analyser. It is a non-invasive device, which measures the impedance value of the body providing quick and effective analysis of body composition. It works by passing a safe battery generated signal through the body and measuring the impedance at a fixed frequency of 50 kHz. Once the test has been performed a complete body composition analysis is printed out and given to the patient.

The Bodystat®1500 measures/calculates

  • Body Fat % and Fat Weight*
  • Lean Mass % and Body Lean Mass *
  • Total Weight
  • Body Water % and Body Water*
  • Plus Normal Levels
  • Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)*
  • BMR/Body Weight
  • Average Daily Calorie Requirement*
  • Body Mass Index - Plus Normal Range
  • Impedance Values at 50kHz

8.  pH Test

In this test we'll determine the pH level of your urine.  The filtrates of the blood are usually acidified in the kidneys from a pH of 7.4 to about 6 in the final urine.  The urinary pH may rate from as high as 8.0 to as low as 4.5.  Typically the urine is best if it is slightly on the acid side at 7.4.  Note that in some situations, alkaline urine is good.  Kidney stones are less to form and some antibiotics are more effective in alkaline urine;  whereas, acid urine may help prevent the growth of certain types of bacteria.

9.  Specific Gravity Test

In this test "specific gravity" refers to the urine density, or the amount of cells in the urine.  Conducting this test provides insight to the kidneys ability to concentrate or dilute the urine.  A specific gravity of 1.002 to 1.035 is considered normal if kidney funtion is normal.  Levels above or below these may be due to dehydration or over-hydration.  Urine with high specific gravity is either contaminated, contains high levels of glucose, or is saturated with certain types of medications.

10.  Glucose Test

This test will show the glucose level in your urine.  Less than 0.1% of glucose that is  normally filtered by the kidneys appears in the urine.  Glycosuria (excess sugar in the urine) generally indicates diabetes.  When the blood levels of glucose are very high, some of the glucose begins to show up in the urine.  The glucose and ketones test are usually performed together.  Large amounts of ketones may be present in uncontrolled diabetes.

11.  Ketones Test

Ketones in the urine result from either diabetic ketosis or some other form of calorie deprivation (starvation) and are associated with high glucose findings in the urine.  

12.  Protein Test

This test will look for excess protein in the urine.  This condition is called urea.  Finding protein in the urine is probably the best test in screening for kidney disease.  It is important to note, however, that there may be a number of other causes for increased proteins in the urine.

13.  Nitrites Test

A positive nitrite test indicates that there may be a significant amount of bacteria in the urine.  Certain types of bacteria are more likely to raise the nitrite level in the urine.  Examples include E. coli and gram negative rods.

14.  Urobilinogen

Normal urine contains only small amounts of urobilinogen.  Elevated levels may indicate hemolysis and hepatocellular disease associated with pregnancy related conditions such as hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count (HELLP).  Bile duct obstruction can decrease levels of urobilinogen.  Excess levels or urobilinogen and biliribin in the urine may signal liver disease.

15.  Red Blood Cells Test

This test will check for blood in the urine, which is known as hematuria.  Hematuria is the presence of abnormal numbers of red blood cells in the urine.  This may be due to glomerular damage, tumors, kidney trauma, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, or physical stress.

16.  Biliruben Test

Biliruben in the urine is a sign of liver or bile duct disease.  The presence of biliruben or urobiligen in the urine indicates very poor liver function and must be taken very seriously.  

17.  White Blood Cells Test

White blood cells, or leukocytes, in the urine are referred to as pyuria.  These may appear as an infection in the upper or lower urinary tract or inflammation of the kidneys.  White blood cells may also appear in the urine from vaginal, cervical or urethral infections.
