Ulta - Metabolic Progress – BRIEF

This is an affordable set of tests to do quarterly to assure your progress results in your healthiest metabolism. Your diet, fitness lifestyle and nutritional intake should improve your energy, weight and inner metabolic health. But don’t merely trust it’s working. Run this Progress Panel to take a snapshot of your insulin response, blood sugars and lipids and pivot off these results as directed in Dr. Maurer’s book, The Blood Code. To lower your cost, vitamin D, vitamin B-12 and ferritin are not on this panel therefore see the Ulta - Metabolic Discovery – FULL Panel if they are required.

When is an Amylase test ordered?

When a person displays symptoms of a pancreatic disease, a blood amylase test may be conducted.

  • Abdominal or back pain that is severe
  • Fever
  • Appetite loss.
  • Nausea

A urine amylase test may be requested in conjunction with or after a blood amylase test. A health practitioner may conduct one or both of these tests on a regular basis to evaluate the success of treatment and see whether amylase levels are increasing or decreasing over time.

What does an Amylase blood test check for?

Amylase is one of numerous pancreatic enzymes that aid in carbohydrate digestion. This test detects the presence of amylase in the blood.

Amylase is produced from the pancreas into the duodenum, the first region of the small intestine, where it aids in the digestion of carbohydrates. Other organs, including the salivary glands, generate it as well.

Amylase is normally found in modest amounts in the blood and urine. Increased levels of amylase are released into the blood when pancreatic cells are harmed, as in pancreatitis, or when the pancreatic duct is obstructed by a gallstone or, in rare situations, a pancreatic tumor. This raises amylase levels in the blood.

Lab tests often ordered with an Amylase test:

  • Lipase
  • Trypsin
  • Trypsinogen

Conditions where an Amylase test is recommended:

  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Pancreatic Diseases
  • Pancreatitis

How does my health care provider use an Amylase test?

An amylase test is used to identify and track acute pancreatitis. It's frequently ordered in conjunction with a lipase test. It can also be used to detect and track chronic pancreatitis and other pancreas-related conditions.

A urine amylase test may be requested as well. Its level will usually correspond to blood amylase concentrations, but the rise and decrease will occur later. A urine creatinine clearance test may be ordered in conjunction with a urine amylase test to determine the ratio of amylase to creatinine filtered by the kidneys. Because poor kidney function might result in a decreased rate of amylase clearance, this ratio is used to assess renal function.

An amylase test on peritoneal fluid may be used to assist diagnose pancreatitis in some instances, such as when there is a buildup of fluid in the abdomen.

Amylase tests are often used to track the progress of pancreatic cancer treatment and after gallstone resection that has resulted in gallbladder attacks.

What do my Amylase test results mean?

A high level of amylase in the blood may suggest the presence of a pancreas problem.

Amylase levels in the blood often rise to 4 to 6 times higher than the highest reference value, also known as the upper limit of normal, in acute pancreatitis. The increase happens within 4 to 8 hours following a pancreas damage and usually lasts until the cause is effectively treated. In a few days, the amylase levels will return to normal.

Amylase levels in chronic pancreatitis are initially fairly increased, although they frequently decline over time as the pancreas deteriorates. Returning to normal levels may not signal that the source of damage has been rectified in this scenario. The size of the amylase rise does not indicate the severity of pancreatic illness.

Amylase levels may also be elevated in persons who have pancreatic duct obstruction or pancreatic cancer.

Urine amylase levels rise in lockstep with blood amylase levels and remain elevated for several days after blood levels have returned to normal.

A high amount of amylase in the peritoneal fluid can indicate acute pancreatitis, but it can also indicate other abdominal problems including a clogged intestine or poor blood supply to the intestines.

A low amylase level in the blood and urine of a person with pancreatitis symptoms could indicate that the amylase-producing cells in the pancreas have been permanently damaged. Reduced levels can also be caused by renal illness or pregnancy toxemia.

Increased blood amylase levels along with normal to low urine amylase levels could indicate the presence of a macroamylase, a harmless compound of amylase and other proteins that builds up in the bloodstream.

We advise having your results reviewed by a licensed medical healthcare professional for proper interpretation of your results.



More than one-fourth of the world's population is unfit. This 25% of people aren't physically fit enough to be considered healthy.

But how can we tell if we're a part of that population? How do we measure our fitness level, and do we need to keep track of things like muscular endurance and body mass index (BMI)?

If you're asking any of these questions, you need a fitness health assessment. Fitness tests can help you and your healthcare providers understand what level of fitness you're at. With this information, you can plan to improve your fitness and lower your health risk.

To learn more about fitness lab tests and fitness in general, keep reading.

What Is a Fitness Health Assessment?

A fitness health assessment includes various exercises and tests that help evaluate your current level of health. To cover different kinds of health, it's important to assess different areas of the body and different abilities.

A fitness health assessment will include many different stages. Here are some examples:

  • General health evaluation
  • Body composition measurements
  • Cardiovascular endurance testing
  • Muscular endurance testing
  • Flexibility testing
  • Fitness lab tests

Each one of these categories is essential in determining the condition of your health. So, it's important not to skip any areas.

Since it's the least physical part of the evaluation, many people skip blood testing. It may not seem like an indicator of endurance or strength, but it still allows you and your healthcare team to determine how well the insides of your body are doing.

It's important to note that - just because you work out and/or eat right - doesn't mean that you're healthy on the inside. This is why we need to get a good look at the whole picture before your healthcare provider can truly say whether or not you fall within normal limits for your age.

Benefits of Getting a Fitness Health Assessment

The results of your fitness health assessment can tell you and your healthcare providers a lot about your health inside and out.

First, it gives your healthcare team a baseline. By knowing where your health levels and physical capacities are now, you and your healthcare provider can make better decisions about your health in the future.

For example, your healthcare provider may note some hypertension and high blood glucose during your exam. With this information, they now understand what your future goals need to focus on. Even better, they know how to help you improve from these numbers.

Next, a health assessment can be great for people already struggling with chronic illness or those starting to develop signs of something more serious. For these individuals, fitness tests can act as an incentive.

Fitness health assessments are concrete, and they provide exact numbers. From this objective data, patients can begin bettering themselves and improving their overall health. Seeing those numbers improve acts as a sort of incentive for these individuals.

Lastly, we should highlight the importance of fitness tests in training. Whether you're an athlete who's in conditioning or someone who likes going to the gym with their personal trainer, fitness tests can make it easy to set goals. Your trainer can test your current physical condition and help you figure out what your future goals are.

Overall, fitness health assessments are good for anyone and everyone. Even if you're not an athlete, fitness tests can help better your health overall and keep you more mindful about your body's condition.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Poor Fitness?

Since your fitness level has to do with the condition of your entire body, the signs and symptoms of being unfit are plentiful. Also, these signs and symptoms exist all over the body.

Here are some examples of the most common signs and symptoms of poor fitness:

  • Labored breathing
  • Shortness of breath after light activities
  • Mood swings
  • Weak or aching muscles after minimal activity
  • Insomnia or other sleeping problems
  • The development of health-related chronic diseases

This last sign is worth talking about. Notice how we're referring to health-related chronic diseases rather than all of them.

It's important to note that some people are predisposed to form these kinds of diseases due to genetic or environmental factors. So, we're not including congenital diseases or genetic predispositions here.

Rather, we're talking about some of the most notable chronic illnesses that have formed in individuals because of their eating habits, exercise habits, and other lifestyle choices. This could include hypertension, type II diabetes, coronary artery disease, and the like. Although these conditions have a genetic component, they can be exacerbated by poor diet and activity choices.

When in doubt, talk to your healthcare provider about your health and your goals.

How Is Fitness Monitored With Lab Tests?

Before wrapping up, we should talk about fitness lab tests. As we said, this is the most underrated part of the fitness health assessment. However, it can tell you the most about your actual health.

Just because someone isn't obese doesn't mean that they're healthy on the inside. Likewise, just because someone is obese doesn't mean they're unhealthy.

Since you cannot determine someone's health by looking at them, you should get lab testing. Here are some common tests that healthcare providers order to evaluate fitness level and health risk:
