Metabolic health refers to the proper functioning of the set of the body's biochemical cell and tissue processes, both at rest and during physical activity. An imbalance in these processes can lead to various conditions and diseases that affect our body's capacity to produce energy efficiently, balance hormones, and maintain healthy levels of essential molecules. The underlying cause of most metabolic health issues often arises from a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
Timely understanding and management of metabolic disorders can lead to a more balanced and healthier life. Recognizing these issues early is crucial. A swift diagnosis means earlier interventions, potentially preventing complications or halting progression. However, diagnosing some metabolic disorders can be a challenge. This is where BioCertica steps in!
Awareness of your genetic predisposition can help you identify signs and symptoms early on and assist medical professionals in pinpointing the issue quicker. As some symptoms of metabolic disorders might be non-specific, DNA testing can provide clarity, adding valuable insight to the diagnostic process.
