Cardio ION Profile - Blood & Urine

The ION with Cardiovascular Risk Markers

Articles

  • Dr. Stephen Sinatra: Metabolic Cardiology and the Cholesterol Myth - Dr. Sinatra looks at coronary disease as an inflammatory problem and believes statins are effective primarily due to their anti-inflammatory effect, but are needed only in certain circumstances.
  • Reactive Species and Antioxidant Markers - Normal cellular processes, ultraviolet rays from the sun, environmental pollutants and toxins, excessive intake of protein, total calories or alcohol, and even increased exercise, can increase reactive oxygen (ROS) and reactive nitrogen (RNS) species.
  • Fibrinogen's Secrets - If you’ve already had a heart attack, having elevated fibrinogen shows you who is most likely to die within less than four years. So if you have already had a heart attack and you’re not having your fibrinogen measured, you are being cheated because it is totally reversible.
  • The Fatty Acid Profile: Dietary Intake and Beyond - Fatty acid testing can provide a great deal of information allowing for individualized interventions. Varying patterns can help to identify not only essential fatty acid deficiency or excess, but also signs of insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, proinflammation, or omega-3 dominance.
  • Vitamin D: A Clinical Perspective - Although its primary role is to regulate calcium and phosphorus absorption/resorption to maintain bone health, the clinical significance of vitamin D is very broad. This article explains why vitamin D is so important to the body.
  • Why Test for Coenzyme Q10? - This article illustrates that measuring both direct and indirect biomarkers of CoQ10 sufficiency in order to appropriately diagnose and treat patients, and to monitor CoQ10 administration, can markedly improve patient outcomes and prevent mitochondrial related disease.
  • Assessment of Biochemical and Nutritional Individuality through Organic Acid Testing - Organic acid testing provides a broad view of many important bodily functions amenable to nutritional interventions. One urine sample can be used to evaluate dysbiosis, detoxification, and nervous system transmitter balance as well as multiple nutrient deficiencies.
  • Significance of Low Plasma Homocysteine - Low plasma homocysteine is clinically relevant because multiple organ and system disturbances can result from limitation of sulfur compounds and methionine methyl donor functions.
  • Significance of Urinary Tartaric Acid - Letter to the editor of Clinical Chemistry supporting the claim that urinary tartaric acid is not a valid measure of yeast overgrowth.
  • Autistic Therapies Focused by Laboratory Data - This review focuses on laboratory evaluation of organic acidurias for revealing metabolic weaknesses in autism that may be responsive to aggressive nutritional, detoxification and gastrointestinal immune balancing interventions.
  • Urinary Markers of Intestinal Yeast - Letter to the editor of Towsend Letter for Doctors and Patients gives the argument against the use of urinary arabinose for detection of invasive candidiasis and for the use of urinary D-arabinitol instead.
  • Urinary Markers of Yeast Overgrowth - This paper presents a review of scientific reports of some urinary markers of yeast overgrowth.

Case Studies

  • Mineral Testing and Osteoporosis - This is a case study involving a postmenopausal woman with osteoporosis. The case illustrates how whole blood minerals and toxic metals testing can give clues to causes of osteoporosis and help with supplement recommendations.
  • Probiotic Sensitivity - Profound elevation of 5-HIA suggests a bowel-specific serotonin syndrome that is producing a hypersensitivity to changes in the bacterial colonies of the gut.
  • Fungal Overgrowth but not Invasive Candidiasis - This case involved a 46-year-old female who was overweight and had poor muscle tone. She presented originally with chronic, severe headaches They improved with pressure and with the use of prednisone. This issue began at age 25.
  • Congenital Hypotonia - Evidence of profound mitochondrial oxidation lesions are seen in this infant with breathing difficulties.
  • Dysbiosis from Corticosteroid Use - The common assumption that prolonged courses of corticosteroid treatment can precipitate Candida yeast infections have never been so evident as in this case.
  • Biotin & Detoxification Needs in Cognitively Delayed Adult - Biotin deficiency may be linked to hyperlipidemia and up-regulated fatty acid desaturation in this mildly psychotic man.
  • Extreme Arabinitol - Extreme elevation of D-arabinitol presents an potential explanation of otherwise unexplained and unusual chronic symptoms.
  • Fat Malabsorption in Health Optimization - When plasma fatty acid levels fail to respond to supplementation with oils rich in essential fatty acids, fat malabsorption is indicated, even when the symptoms of essential fatty acid deficiency are not yet reported.
  • Yeast - Nitric Oxide Pattern - A possible case of autism and several metabolic markers that can be improved.
  • Prader-Willi-2 - Mitochondrial distress with oxidative stress and extreme glutathione up-regulation is exacerbated by glycine conjugation insufficiency and intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
  • Prader-Willi 1 - A series of Organix reports shows the nature of this genetic abnormality as numerous, severe, and persistent metabolic disturbances.
  • Philadelphia Chromosome - When follow up testing looks much worse while a young leukemia patient is improving, multiple factors are at play. Underlying dysbiosis and glutathione issues are involved in this case.
  • D-Lactate Study Set - Seven cases illustrate a variety of other bacterial marker abnormalities when D-lactate is high. The patterns instruct about etiologies and intervention strategies.
  • High Amino Developmental Delay - A combination of environmental, nutritional, and genetic metabolic weaknesses were found as potential causative factors in the failure of neurological development for this 2-year-old girl. Vitamin B6 insufficiency, arsenic exposure, and intestinal dysbiosis are key features in the initial laboratory workup.
  • Fishing Trip Heart Attack - After his first heart attack, this man had delilgently followed all recommendations from standard cardiology. The low fat diet and regular exercise routines, lowered his body weight and blood lipids. Then he headed out for his annual fishing trip and another MI hit him. The Cardio ION revealed multiple additional cardiac risk factors needing correction.
