At Integrated Nutrition of Mount Kisco, PLLC and Blood Logic, Inc. we work in close partnership with you towards developing your natural healing plan. What you do not need is a generalized “one size fits all approach.”  Our approach for clarifying your health issues, finding hidden causes of your health problem(s) and developing natural solutions has been woven into our carefully designed longevity approach that we call The Blood Detective’s Longevity Plan. We believe that developing a Metabolic Map of your entire body by performing specialized health tests (e.g., biomarkers) is a truly holistic way of viewing, appreciating and managing your health concerns. As a concierge practice, we make ourselves truly available to you.  As a paperless office we are concerned about the world environment as it affects our “internal environment”…namely, your health.

Lactic Acid Test to determine red blood cell health, toxicity, inflammation and oxidation

Lactic acid is an energy molecule used as metabolic fuel for your heart, but too much lactic acid in your circulation can mean that you have any number of health conditions including poor circulation, chronic infection, inflammation, tissue damage and poor oxygen delivery.

Too much lactic acid can contribute to low blood ph causing chronic pain, poor exercise tolerance, brain fog, fibromyalgia and even cancer. Other health problems and conditions that are sometimes associated with elevated lactic acid levels are:

Dehydration, deficiency of certain nutrients, poor carbohydrate tolerance, poor aerobic tolerance, cardiovascular and pulmonary issues, shock, severe infection, disease of red blood cells and of the liver, lactic acidosis, medication response are just some of its many causes. Focused natural approaches must be focused on the specific reasons for lactic acid elevations..

The Blooddetective way of managing elevated lactic acid levels includes identifying it’s cause, co-managing your health problems with nutrition and lifestyle improvements that target your overall health condition.

Lactic Acid Test

A Lactic Acid Test is a blood test that measures the level of lactate (lactic acid) made in the body. Lactic acid is a biomarker in the blood of a variety of health problems. A biomarker is a test that, when normalized, predicts a greater "health span" (less disability) and improved lifespan.  

Lactic acid may contribute to osteoporosis, heart disease, hardening of the arteries and arthritis.

Lactic acid is like a fire that burns with the body promoting inflammation, pain, abnormal cells and other health problems.

HEALTH ISSUES POTENTIALLY INVOLVING HIGH LACTIC ACID LEVELS

  • Autoimmune disease

  • Cancer

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • CoQ10 deficiency

  • Fatigue

  • Heart Disease

  • Heart failure

  • Hyperacidity (high stomach acid)

  • Hypoacidity (low stomach acid)

The majority of lactic acid is produced by muscle tissue, red blood cells, and/or bacteria that can be used as an indirect assessment of the oxygen level in tissue.

A biomarker is a test that has the potentially of predicting, when interpreted against other markers, your overall morbidity and mortality (how long you live and risk of developing one or more degenerative diseases). Below are some of the reasons why Dr. Wald requests serial measurements of lactic acid

According to Dr. Wald, "...like other biomarker tests lactic acid levels vary and knowing the extent of these variations (highs and lows) helps to personalize and tailor natural approaches to excessive lactic acid levels. "

It can also be a determining factor towards uncovering the cause and course of lactic acidosis, a serious and sometimes life threatening condition induced by the build up of lactate. However, a large segment of the population suffers from low level lactic acidosis that may contribute to serious health problems. This Low Level Lactic Acidosis is largely under-appreciated and under-diagnosed by traditionally trained physicians. Scientific support for its existence and health and disease implications are well described (see: J of Clinical Endocrinology, University of California, L. Frassetto, Potassium bicarbonate Reduces Urinary Nitrogen Excretion in Postmenopausal Women (82:254-259, 1997).

Through a small sample of blood, a lactic acid test can uncover the cause of high acidity (low pH) of the blood and thus unmask smoldering conditions that are or may potentially affect your health now and in the future.

Serial measurements of lactic acid are necessary for proper interpretation of physiological trends and response to our therapeutic efforts.

WHY WE PERFORM LACTIC ACID TESTS

  • To check for lactic acidosis and sub-clinical lactic acidosis

  • To determine the cause of low pH of the blood

  • To determine the cause of chronic pain

  • To determine the cause of chronic inflammation

  • To determine the effectiveness of exercise

  • To determine the effectiveness of dietary interventions

  • To determine the effectiveness of stress-reduction strategies

  • To determine the degree of hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in tissue

  • To determine the physiological state and the degree of perfusion of body tissue

inflammation

  • Liver functional problems and failure

  • Muscle spasm

  • Pain

  • Renal Failure

  • Respiratory Failure

  • Seizures

  • Severe infection

  • Shock
