Why Track?

Regular testing of biomarkers can act as an early detection system. Especially if you're not getting enough sleep, have improper nutrition, substandard training, unwise lifestyle choices or weak bone health. Lab Me helps by detecting non-optimal levels of blood biomarkers . For example high levels of cortisol which is an indicator of stress.

Additional Info

Ferritin

Ferritin stores iron in the body.  Ferritin fluctuates with iron levels; when iron levels are low, so are ferritin levels, which can cause symptoms of weakness, fatigue and dizziness. When there is an abundance of iron, there is an increase in ferritin, which can cause swelling of the liver and liver damage, fatigue, weight loss, weakness and sometimes darkening of the skin.

Ferritin is tested to identify the storage capacity of iron in the body.
