My Nightingale results
Of the 250 biomarkers measured, 16 biomarkers particularly relevant for the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes are shown in the figure below. 11 of these items are not usually measured in the standard health check-up.
Standard health check-up results
in the traditional
and My Nightingale
- ● HDL cholesterol
- Also called the “good” cholesterol. Associated with preventing arterial stiffness.
- ● LDL cholesterol
- Also called the “bad” cholesterol. Associated with promoting atherosclerosis.
- ● Non-HDL cholesterol
- All cholesterol levels that trigger arterial stiffening. It is a comprehensive management index for the risk of arterial stiffening, and high levels are associated with atherosclerosis, abnormal lipid metabolism, and familial hyperlipidemia.
- ● Triglycerides
- Accounts for the majority of body fat and is associated with obesity and lifestyle-related diseases.
- ● Glucose
- Glucose levels in the blood. Associated with diabetes and vascular damage.
My Nightingale’s unique results
results included in
- ● VLDL cholesterol
- Reflects triglyceride levels as it carries triglycerides in the bloodstream.
- ● ApoB
- Binds to LDL cholesterol and circulates in the body, thus reflecting the amount of LDL cholesterol.
- ● ApoA1
- Binds to HDL cholesterol and circulates in the body, thus reflecting the amount of HDL cholesterol.
- ● Ratio of ApoB/ApoA1
- Indirectly reflects the ratio of LDL/HDL cholesterol.
- ● GlycA
- Glycoprotein acetylation. Reflects chronic inflammation.
- ● Percentage of omega-3
- Reflects the amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which have triglyceride-lowering and other beneficial effects.
- ● Percentage of omega-6
- Reflects the amount of omega-6 fatty acids, which have cholesterol-lowering properties.
- ● Percentage of monounsaturated fatty acids
- High levels often reflect insulin resistance.
- ● Percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids
- Reflects the amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.
- ● Percentage of saturated fatty acids
- High levels are associated with the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
- ● Branched chain amino acid
- High levels are associated with type 2 diabetes risk.
What My Nightingale reveals
By examining in detail the results that are not measured in standard health check-ups and physical examinations,
My Nightingale will not only reveal your risk of developing lifestyle-related diseases, but also provide advice on how to reduce your risk.
Risk of developing
The risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes within 10 years is statistically assessed.
Specific actions to take to
reduce the risk
As many as 250 blood biomarkers are examined and evaluated in detail, including ones not measured in standard blood tests. This reveals indicators and hidden information of particular problems, enabling us to define actions to be taken for improvement.
