For over twenty years, we have all understood that our longevity is based on what we do right now, what we eat, our level of physical activity, or the stress of everyday life. One of the fundamental points is to regularly check blood metals to assess our status of selenium, copper, zinc or more commonly iron levels. It has long been known that a level of selenium that is too low can induce cancer-like diseases or too high copper contents can also be signs of a particular disease.
This kind of analysis is commonly done since a long time in biological laboratories and often prescribed by doctors called "anti-aging" to make this type of assessment. However, one item comes out of the batch, COPPER which is well known to reflect the oxidation state of cells and be the sensitive point that needs to be checked during balances.
For more than 10 years, our laboratory has specialized in a specific measure related to copper called copper isotopic measurement (dCu) and which allows to see if the value obtained is in a range that can be considered as healthy or at risk. Moreover, with regular monitoring of this parameter, it is possible to verify that no noticeable changes in copper management are in progress.
Before summer, we will propose specific analyzes concerning the prediction of the osteoporotic state of women after menopause. This technique is based on the measurement of calcium isotopes composition and will be proposed as part of a Franco-German collaboration. The interest of this technique is that it requires only 1 ml of serum and provides information of better quality than the conventional radiological method that is DXA.
