Bannockburn, IL, United States, 2010/07/16 - Glycemion Strategies announces the availability of a combination test specifically developed by Healthy Life Labs for diabetes and inflammation to serve the 150,000 dental professionals in the US and the millions of at-risk patients they serve.
Glycemion Strategies, Inc., an Illinois-based company that develops strategic initiatives for diabetic consumers and their professional health care providers, announced today the availability of a combination test specifically developed by Healthy Life Laboratories for diabetes and inflammation to serve the 150,000 dental professionals in the US and the millions of at-risk patients they serve.
“Until now, such testing would require a venous draw performed by a trained phlebotomist at a clinical laboratory, which is not practical for most dental professionals”, explained Henry Warner, CEO of Glycemion Strategies, Inc. “We contracted with microsampling industry leader, Healthy Life Laboratories to develop a convenient and accurate platform to collect fingernick blood which could be transported to and analyzed by a certified clinical laboratory,” added Warner.
Dr. Jack Maggiore, Chief Scientific Officer of Healthy Life Laboratories explains, “Two key underlying metabolic conditions that manifest in the oral cavity are diabetes and inflammation, and the biometric markers most appropriately used to screen for these conditions are Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) respectively. Dental professionals need to assess the risk of these disorders before initiating any invasive procedures.”
