Thorne's Essential Health Panel provides a comprehensive assessment of clinically relevant biomarkers and research-driven personalized recommendations.
Lipid Panel • Blood Panel
Total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL Cholesterol, HDL Ratios, Non-HDL Cholesterol
Healthy lipid levels are essential for maintaining cardiovascular and liver health, as well as maintaining healthy hormone and nutrient levels.
Lipid Particles • Blood Panel
Apolipoprotein B, Lipoprotein (a)
Lipid particles provide an in-depth look at lipoprotein quantity and quality and provide detail about risk for cardiovascular disease.
Stress & Inflammation • Blood Panel
Indicators of the stress and inflammation the body is experiencing.
Glucose Metabolism • Blood Panel
Glucose, HbA1C, Insulin, HOMA-IR
This category is related to your ability to maintain normal blood sugar levels and how that relates to your risk for insulin resistance/prediabetes, diabetes mellitus, or metabolic syndrome.
Thyroid • Blood Panel
Thyroid hormones regulate how fast or slow the body's cells work — everything from how fast or slow the heart beats to how quickly or slowly the intestines digest food.
Reproductive Hormones • Blood Panel
DHEA-S, Estradiol, SHBG, Total Testosterone, Free Testosterone
Helps provide insights into performance measures. An imbalance in these hormones can affect many important functions, including overall growth and muscle gain, metabolism, mood, libido, immune health, and reproductive health.
Liver • Blood Panel
Albumin, A/G Ratio, Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), ALT (SGPT), AST (SGOT), Globulin, Total Bilirubin, Total Serum Protein
Liver health is essential to over 500 vital functions such as detoxication, blood sugar regulation, vitamin synthesis and more. Alcohol, fatty foods, being overweight, environmental toxins, and exercise all have an impact on the liver's health.
Kidney • Blood Panel
Blood Urea Nitrogen, Creatinine, BUN/Creatinine Ratio, GFR Estimate (eGFR)
The kidneys detoxify the body of environmental pollutants and other harmful substances. Kidney health is critical for balancing hydration and minerals, red blood cell formation, activating vitamin D, regulating blood sugar, and maintaining homeostasis.
Blood • Blood Panel
Platelet Count, White Cell Count, Absolute Neutrophils, Lymphocytes, Absolute Lymphocytes, Monocytes, Absolute Monocytes, Eosinophils, Absolute Eosinophils, Basophils, Absolute Basophils, Red Blood Cell Count, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MVP, MCH, MCHC, MCV, RDW
A detailed assessment of red and white blood cells, which are important for maintaining energy, normal immune function, and optimal circulation.
Vitamins • Blood Panel
Folate, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D
These three vitamins play an important role in many systems of the body, including energy and metabolism, nervous system function, bone health, muscle health, immune function, methylation, healing, and recovery.
Minerals & Electrolytes • Blood Panel
RBC Magnesium, Calcium, Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Chloride, Potassium, Sodium
Sodium, potassium, and chloride are electrolytes that help maintain chemical and electrical balance across all cells and nerves. Calcium and magnesium are essential minerals that support bones, nerve health, and muscle function. Testing RBC magnesium is the most precise way to evaluate magnesium in the cells.
Iron • Blood Panel
Ferritin (Serum), Iron, TIBC
If these biomarkers are low, a person can begin to experience issues with energy, fatigue, weakness, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, and depression. If they are high, a person might be experiencing signs of liver damage, stomach or joint pain, or an irregular heartbeat.
