LONGITUDINAL MEASUREMENT AND MONITORING OF BIOMARKERS
In Antiaging Preventive Medicine, it is not enough to take a “snapshot” of one’s state of health at a specific moment in time. Our biomarkers evolve over time, and there are countless situations, that may alter them: aging, changes in lifestyle habits, stressful situations, etc. Therefore, we must continuously monitor the evolution of our body, over time, in order to act on these alterations.In this way, Longitudinal Measurement and Monitoring of Biomarkers is a fundamental cornerstone of Antiaging Preventive Medicine and our programs.
A competent physician, before attempting to administer a remedy to his patient, must investigate, not only the illness he wishes to cure, but also the patient’s habits and physical constitution.
(Marcus Tullius Cicero)
At Neolife, one of the most relevant factors of our programs, is the cornerstone of longitudinal measurement and monitoring of biomarkers, which is applied:
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE HEALTH CONTINUUM IN PATIENT BIOMARKERS
The Health Continuum begins with initial personalized checkups. Subsequently, in the evolutionary control consultations (every 3 or 6 months, depending on each person, their progress, and the goals they’ve set), the altered biomarkers in the patient’s health are analyzed, longitudinally over time, which are associated with one of our preventive panels (cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, metabolic, osteoporosis, oncological), with the aim of positioning them at optimal levels, where there is an absence of disease.
WHY TURN TO NEOLIFE TO MONITOR YOUR HEALTH MARKERS?
The key to the success of any program, is its periodic monitoring over time, the Health Continuum. Our programs do not consist of only specific checkups, with a series of recommendations; at Neolife, we set objectives, define a plan, provide the tools to achieve them, and periodically monitor the evolution of biomarkers.
Comprehensive biomedical monitoring of health and longevity markers, is essential as the starting and follow-up point for the program, in order to obtain measurable and comparable goals, and to be able to take the necessary actions to achieve optimal health.
We identify what changes the patient may suffer (appearance of diseases) when certain parameters are destabilized, which will require an additional determination of markers, in order to proceed with further adjustments.
The measurement of biomarkers guarantees patient safety: we will act within specific limits for each of them. In this way, we try to minimize unwanted effects, mimic the functioning of the body, and avoid inappropriate practices (dangerous additives used in bodybuilding, dubious practices of slimming clinics, etc.).
The quality of the clinical tests, is a necessary aspect for their correct interpretation. We ensure that everything is carried out under the best possible conditions.
The recurrent analysis, of the numerous biomarkers of health and longevity, is carried out jointly by the Medical Team and the Nutrition Team. This comprehensive approach to health is complemented by a strong team of consultants from other medical specialties.
