This at-home urine collection is a marquee test for any individuals dealing with blood sugar dysregulation, or those on numerous prescription medications. Consistently elevated blood sugars produce high amounts of free radicals in the body which, in the long-run, promote further disease processes. Certain medications are also known to induce nutrient deficiencies. The most well-known example is that of a CoQ10 deficiency caused by the administration of a statin drug prescribed for lowering cholesterol.
This test assesses the metabolites of the cellular energy producing Krebs Cycle and isolates specific nutrient deficiencies in compromised individuals.
