Don’t Just Guess!

on January 16, 2019

For many of us, including myself, the new year brings renewed focus to exercise more, eat a healthier diet and get more sleep. How do you know if all that hard work is paying off? Up until now, the bathroom scale has been a way to measure if all that hard work is paying off.

SpecialtyHealth is offering a new test to help you monitor your success. The GlycA is a blood test used to monitor the bodies inflammatory progresses such as insulin resistance.

For the first time, SpecialtyHealth is offering two important blood tests; the NMR with an insulin resistance score and a GlycA used to monitor the bodies inflammatory progress.

What is Glyc-A?

Glyc-A is a measure of inflammation. High GlycA levels are significantly predictive of cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke, need for by-pass or stenting), as well as development of diabetes, even after adjustment for traditional risk factors.  It is also used to monitor the progress of treatment of those who are known to have an inflammatory process in their body, such as insulin resistance or rheumatoid arthritis.
