BasicCheck

The BasicCheck is a first-line preventive biology assessment. Carried out on a blood sample, it provides an inventory of your health through a choice of relevant biological markers.

What is BasicCheck?

BasicCheck is a first-line preventive health assessment test. Carried out on a blood sample, it provides an inventory of your current health through the testing of relevant biological markers.
Your health can be altered by various dysfunctions: oxidative stress, (micro) nutritional deficiencies, underlying inflammation, metabolic or hormonal imbalances…

The parameters measured in this profile make it possible to evaluate the activity of the various mechanisms and to identify possible imbalances so that you can correct them.

What can you expect from BasicCheck?

BasicCheck can, among other things, reveal vitamin or trace element deficiencies, low grade inflammation, potential intestinal hyperpermeability, oxidative stress…
This assessment will enable you to identify the origin of the problem or to guide you towards further testing to be carried out.

Once you have obtained your results, and on the advice of your practitioner or health professional, you will be able to implement appropriate solutions

Who is BasicCheck for?

BasicCheck is suitable for anyone who is concerned about their health: men or women, young or old, with specific symptoms or not.
Digestive disorders, fertility problems, dermatological symptoms, chronic fatigue or unexplained stress may be linked to biological abnormalities that will help guide the health professional in his or her patient support.

Why does BasicCheck include these parameters specifically?

BasicCheck brings together test parameters which enable the evaluation of basic dysfunctions which are at the origin (or consequence) of most pathologies, symptomatic or not:

  • ultra-sensitive CRP, whose elevation indicates the existence of low-grade inflammation,
  • uric acid, the trace elements copper, zinc and selenium, as well as vitamins A and E, actors of antioxidant protection and oxidized LDL, reflecting the level of oxidative stress in the body,
  • vitamin D, a significant test parameter due to its multiple implications (bone/joint health but also immunity, inflammation, mood, cognition, memory…).
  • the thyroid hormones TSH and free T3, the latter representing the biologically active form and whose level depends closely on the conversion of free T4, itself conditioned by a sufficient quantity of co-factors including, in particular, iron, zinc, vitamins A and D which are present in this profile,
  • ferritin, a control of the body’s iron reserves and an indicator of possible high-grade inflammation,
  • glycated hemoglobin, whose level may point to a potential blood sugar imbalance that should be explored,
  • homocysteine, a major player in the methylation processes essential to cellular metabolism, the level of which may reflect a deficiency in vitamins B6, B9 or B12,
  • casein IgG, whose normality can reassure the integrity of the intestinal epithelium and eliminate the hypothesis of hyperpermeability (leaky-gut).
  • and finally coenzyme Q10, the body’s main antioxidant and whose deficiency, which is not exceptional, may be associated with muscular or neuropsychic disorders
