Inflammation

This blood test can indicate inadequate recovery from exercise or overtraining that can result in inflammation and muscle damage.

 

CRP

High sensitivity C-reactive protein is used to detect inflammation. CRP is an acute phase reactant, a protein made by the liver and released into the blood within a few hours after tissue injury, the start of an infection, or other cause of inflammation or cardiac disease.

 

ESR

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) indirectly measures inflammation in the body. Increased amounts of proteins in the blood such as fibrinogen or immunoglobulins which are increased in inflammation increase the ESR.

 

Lactate Dehydrogenase

Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is an enzyme required for converting glucose into energy for your cells. LDH is released into the blood when cells are damaged. This test can be widely used.

 

Creatinine Kinase

Creatinine kinase (CK) is release into the blood when muscle cells are injured. Prolonged elevation after periods of rest can be an indication of over training.

 

 

H2 - Pancreatic Function
