Metametrix Introduces the New Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile - A Snapshot of Overall Nutrition
Date:1/13/2009

DULUTH, Ga., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Metametrix Clinical Laboratory (http://www.metametrix.com), a leader in nutritional and metabolic testing services, announced the introduction of the new Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile. This new profile is an excellent way to measure a patient's overall health, nutrient processing, and dietary insufficiencies.

The Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile measures the following nutrients:

-- Vitamin A - essential for immune defense, neural development, and maintenance of healthy skin and vision

-- Vitamin D - essential for reducing cancer risk and health maintenance

-- Vitamin E - an important free radical scavenger and protective antioxidant

-- Vitamin K - reduces cardiovascular disease risk and critical for strong bones

    -- Beta-carotene - an important antioxidant to keep cells healthy

    -- Coenzyme Q10 - necessary for converting food energy to cellular energy

From a simple serum collection, levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K plus beta-carotene and coenzyme Q10 are measured to evaluate total body status of these antioxidant nutrients. Evaluating levels of these vitamins and nutrients in one report can help practitioners determine if a patient has dietary issues, or if the patient has more serious insufficiencies in processing nutrients, such as diseases that interfere with the digestion of fat. Also, it is important to make sure these nutrients are working together properly, such as vitamin K for calcium maintenance, vitamin D for calcium absorption, and vitamin A for bone remodeling. The Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile is a great tool for practitioners to get an overall view of a patient's health status before treatment options are explored.

For 25 years, Metametrix Clinical Laboratory has been an industry leader in producing innovative, Next Generation Technologies(SM) for measuring nutritional insufficiencies, metabolic dysfunction, as well as toxic influences on health. Metametrix is committed to applying the latest advances in testing services to functional and integrative medicine with a focus on quality, innovation, and education.
