LabSmarts Release Notes New features and enhancements Details for Each New Release New Features (R1.1.4 – 05/28/20) Vitamin D, 1,25 (OH)2 Bar graph added to Nutrients Analysis panel. Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (Sed Rate, ESR) Measures how quickly RBCs settle out of anticoagulated blood in one hour. Different ranges for over and under 50 years of age for each gender. Bar graph added to Inflammation Analysis panel. Non-specific measurement of inflammation. Notes tab In each analysis section to add your own notes specific to that section. Practitioner Notes At the end of analysis to add your overall notes about the test and/or client. Insights tab in Immune System Analysis section Shows logic for each % likelihood of Immune System Abnormality pattern. Enhancements Changed name of Platelets Analysis to Coagulation Analysis panel Added Fibrinogen bar graph to Coagulation Analysis panel Fibrinogen is needed to make fibrin which binds to platelets to form a blood clot. Fibrinogen bar graph is currently in the Inflammation / Oxidative Stress Analysis panel because it’s an acute-phase reactant and is quickly elevated in times of inflammation. Added Globulin bar graph to Immune System Analysis panel. Globulin is needed to make immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins are used by the immune system to identify and neutralize pathogens. Used in the calculation for the Immune System Abnormality likelihood gauge. Future use in rules to identify Possible Root Causes of Immune System Abnormality. Added Alkaline Phosphatase bar graph to Immune System Analysis panel. Alkaline phosphatase is an indirect measurement of zinc. Zinc is needed to activate T cells. T cells control and regulate immune responses and neutralize pathogens. Currently used in the calculation for the Immune System Abnormality likelihood gauge. Future use in rules to identify Possible Root Causes of Immune System Abnormality. Added Ferritin bar graph to Inflammation / Oxidative Stress Analysis panel. Ferritin is an acute-phase reactant. Elevated ferritin is a strong indicator of inflammation. See Item 1 Under Optimal Min and Max: https://labsmarts.com/bibliography/#ferritin When ferritin is found and measured in serum, it has leaked from damaged liver cells. Ferritin loses most of its iron while in the serum. The iron is in an unliganded form that causes serious damage to cells.
