Anti-Oxidant And Anti-Inflammatory Nutritional Assessment
- Chronic fatigue
- Allergies, recurrent infections
- Ocular (macular degeneration, cataract, dry eye)
- Cerebral (Alzheimer, stroke)
- Vascular (tingling of the extremities, cold extremities, Raynaud's syndrome, venous stasis, phlebitis, arteritis)
- Articular (arthritis)
- Metabolic (overweight, obesity, non-insulin dependent diabetes).
Indeed, certain vitamins, minerals and fatty acids have the function of protecting our cells against attacks and controlling inflammation.
Our body is able to produce some of these elements. Some of them, such as omega-3 fatty acids, are said to be essential because they can only be provided by the diet.
Biology allows us to verify the effectiveness of a treatment. For example, if I take such and such a vitamin, do my levels rise? And if it does not go back up, then you have to ask yourself why and whether you should continue to buy this supplement!
It is the same with food. If I detect a deficit in an anti-inflammatory, anti-aggregating, lypogenolysis omega 3 (which activates fat melting): does this make up for my deficits or does the problem come from assimilation?
The Erythrocyte Fatty Acid Profile: analyses all the fatty acids making up our cell membranes.
SOD, GPX: this is the first line of antioxidant defence and requires several cofactors: copper and zinc, selenium and glutathione.
Finally, ferritin and transferrin: iron storage and transport proteins
Vitamin E, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin (acting at the level of the eyes, the biggest producer of oxidative stress in the body)
Apolipoproteins ApoA and ApoB are proteins responsible for transporting fats.
Lp(a) is an independent risk factor for Coronary heart disease - Cerebrovascular disease - Obliterative arteritis of the lower limbs - Restenosis after ocular angioplasty.
Ultrasensitive CRP: invisible chronic inflammation (low grade) or significant localised inflammation (high grade).
Haptoglobulin is a marker of vascular inflammation.
A1GP is a marker of high-grade inflammation and has a role in immune regulation.
Albumin and pre-albulmin are proteins of inflammation.
Inflammatory and Nutritional Index PINI: allows to assess the inflammatory and antioxidant risk. This index is very useful before a surgical operation for example.
Glutathione and Thioredoxin*: regulate antioxidant defences.
IGF1* is a protein linked to growth hormone. Its signalling has been found in colon cancer, thyroid cancer and breast cancer.
IGFPB3* is the main transporter of IGF1. Its level can be modified in hyperthyroidism, chronic renal failure, diabetes, breast, ovarian and prostate cancer.
The Homa and Quicki indices* make it possible to determine possible risk factors for type 2 diabetes.
Active B12*: Mainly responsible for neurological or haematological disorders.
Vitamin D*: Deficiency is a risk factor for breast, gastric and colorectal cancer. On the other hand, an excess of this vitamin is associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer.
Iodine* is involved in the composition of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) and is essential for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland (growth and trophicity).
