MiniCheck

MiniCheck is a first-line preventive biology assessment consisting of 7 fundamental parameters. It enables the identification of possible harmful processes or deficiencies (macro- or micronutritional) that may become more serious over the years.

What is MiniCheck?

The reduction of your well-being and state of health can be explained by various dysfunctions: oxidative stress, (micro) nutritional deficiencies, metabolic or hormonal imbalances, underlying inflammation…

The 7 parameters dosed in this panel allow us to evaluate the activity of the different mechanisms and to identify possible imbalances so that you can correct them with your practitioner.

What can we expect from MiniCheck?

MiniCheck can highlight the most common micronutritional deficiencies, low grade inflammation or oxidative stress.

This check-up will enable you to specify the origin of possible symptoms and direct you towards possible further research.

This information will enable your practitioner to provide you with the best possible support and help you regain your well-being and vitality.

Who is MiniCheck profile for?

The MiniCheck is aimed at any health-conscious individual: man or woman, young or old, with or without specific symptoms.

Digestive or dermatological disorders, weight problems, chronic fatigue or unexplained stress may be linked to biological abnormalities.

Parameters

CRP Ultrasensitive, Homocysteine, Vitamin D, Zinc, Selenium, Oxidised LDL, Coenzyme Q10

More information on the MiniCheck

Why does MiniCheck include these parameters specifically?

MiniCheck 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,
  • oxidised LDL, a reflection of the body’s level of oxidative stress,
  • vitamin D, a significant test parameter due to its multiple implications (bone/joint health but also immunity, inflammation, mood, cognition, memory…).
  • 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,
  • zinc, a cofactor of more than 300 enzymes and particularly involved in antioxidant defences and immune support,
  • selenium, an important player in antioxidant protection and the smooth synthesis of thyroid hormones,
  • coenzyme Q10, the body’s main antioxidant and whose deficiency, which is not exceptional, may be associated with muscular or neuropsychic disorders
