Mental Check Panel: Finding the Root Cause
Mental health refers to a person’s emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and behave in daily life. Lab testing, on the other hand, refers to the use of laboratory methods and analysis to diagnose and monitor various medical conditions.
Lab testing may be used to measure certain biomarkers in the blood, such as hormone levels or neurotransmitters, to help diagnose and monitor certain mental health conditions. Lab results may provide important information about the functioning of various systems in the body, including the nervous system, which is involved in regulating mental health.
Wellacy (AKA FastLabs) is dedicated to providing patients with actionable lab results. With your health as our priority, Wellacy (AKA FastLabs) offers you a Mental Check Panel – designed to help identify the underlying root causes of depression and anxiety, so you can address them using nutrition, supplements, and other lifestyle factors.
The Mental Check Panel is 8 tests in one:
Folate and Vitamin B12:
Vitamin B12, on the other hand, is necessary for the proper formation of red blood cells and the proper function of the nervous system. A deficiency in vitamin B12 can cause symptoms such as memory loss, depression, and cognitive decline. Both deficiencies can cause serious mental health issues if left untreated.
Vitamin D, Calcium, and Magnesium:
Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to an increased risk of depression and other mood disorders. Some studies have also suggested that vitamin D supplementation may be effective in improving symptoms of depression, anxiety, and cognitive function. Additionally, it’s also important to note that vitamin D deficiency can also lead to other health issues such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.
Low levels of calcium and magnesium have been linked to an increased risk of depression and anxiety. Additionally, they also play a role in the regulation of stress hormones, such as cortisol. Some studies have suggested that supplementation may be effective in reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Calcium can be obtained through diet, such as dairy products, leafy green vegetables, and fortified foods. It is important to note that excessive intake of calcium supplements can lead to health problems, such as kidney stones, so it’s always recommended to consult a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen. Magnesium can be found in many food sources, including spinach, almonds, black beans, and avocado. Both are available as dietary supplements.
