We offer a clinical and integrative approach that promotes wellness in our patients by personalizing treatment and care. Anti-ageing medicine addresses the cause of illness, not only treating the symptoms. We make sure you are at your optimal from the inside out, so you not only look, but feel your very best.

Our Approach

Anti-ageing medicine applies advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases. We pay special attention to the body’s thyroid hormone function, working closely with our in-house laboratory and our partner Govita Laboratory to do specialised tests to analyse hormone production and look for other markers of age-related health problems. Our anti-ageing treatments and analysis usually involve collaboration between numerous of our in-house practitioners.

Services List

Anti-Aging

Further to our Full Physical Examination at Dr Lauren Bramley & Partners, these Anti-Ageing Tests provide an even more in-depth analysis of particular symptoms that you may be presenting.

Please note that some of the tests are conducted at overseas laboratories, so please allow up to 3-4 weeks for results. 

Anti-Aging Tests

Reverse T3

Reverse T3 is a non-functioning form of the active hormone triiodothyronine (T3). In the tissues, T4 normally converts to T3, however, other hormones (e.g. cortisol) may inhibit this conversion, producing reverse T3. High levels of reverse T3 indicate thyroid resistance and produces symptoms of low thyroid function (hypothyroidism).

Iodine 

Iodine is the building block of thyroid hormone and de ciency is rampant and treatable resulting in improved thyroid function and symptom improvement. If you are taking iodine supplements, you are required to stop 7 days prior to this blood test.

Pregnenolone 

This is known as the mother hormone, which all other steroids including testosterone and estrogen are derived from. It is important neuro-active steroid important for proper brain development, cognition, memory and mood.

Testosterone Free 

Men and women both produce testosterone, which attaches to two proteins — albumin and Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). This test measures your total testosterone and the amount of free testosterone (i.e. unattached to proteins) in your blood. Women with high levels of free testosterone may have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition marked by infertility and/ or lack of menstruation. Men with low levels can lose their libido, suffer bone loss or become infertile.

IGF-1 

Insulin-like Growth Factor – 1 is measured to help diagnose the cause of growth abnormalities, evaluate pituitary function and monitor treatment of Growth Hormone   deficiencies and excesses.

Telomere Test 

Telomeres – the sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome, serve as a cap to your genetic material. Serial evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to normal population.

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Hormonal imbalances, whether as an endocrine disorder or natural age-related decline in levels, can result in a number of problems including PMS, weight gain, irregular periods, mood disorders, depression, sexual dysfunction and infertility. We analyse hormonal balances and then create highly personalised treatments using hormones that are identical on a molecular level with endogenous hormones to address these health issues.

Thyroid Management

Thyroid management is an area which are practitioners look at very closely. At Dr. Lauren Bramley & Partners, we offer a series of tests to evaluate thyroid function to ensure better hormonal balance and overall health. We profile TSH, Free T3, Free T4 including ATA and the TPO.

An under active thyroid can lead to weight gain, cholesterol and insulin resistance so we aim to regulate its function so you look and feel your best.

Quicksilver Scientific Mercury Tri-Test

Quicksilver Scientific’s Mercury Tri-Test, available through Dr. Lauren Bramley and Partners, is a patented advanced clinical testing suite that biologically monitors:

  • your exposure level to the different forms (species) of mercury (methylmercury and inorganic mercury); and
  • the ratio of methylmercury to inorganic mercury indicating an index of your excretion ability for each form of mercury – i.e. your capability to remove this exposure through the body’s detoxification pathways

The test can be further expanded to include and measure rare forms of this toxic element (ethylmercury and propylmercury). A customised report provided to you contains raw and graphical data allowing you and your healthcare practitioner to interpret the results and to plan for a detoxification strategy, should it be required.

Govita Laboratories

 

Govita Laboratory are a state-of-the-art technology driven Laboratory focusing on the development of novel molecular biomarker panels and their applications in preventive medicine and health.

 

  • EstroGene

Newly designed DNA test panel to uncovers mutations of major genes in the estrogen metabolism influencing development of breast cancer and osteoporosis. Results can help in guiding birth control choice, fertility treatment, and hormonal replacement therapy.

 

  • ThyroGen

Newly design DNA test to genotype the individual’s thyroid conversion gene to guide right treatment choice for hypothyroid patients.

 

  • DetoxGen

Newly designed DNA test panel to identify inherited genetic variants involved in the major detoxification processes necessary for removing toxic substances.

 

  • Methyla

A unique metabolic test panel to assess the body’s methylation functions, and to guide precise interventions for restoring the methylation balance needed for cardiovascular health and cell energy.
