All the major chronic diseases today are preventable!
According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), chronic diseases are not prevented by vaccines or generally cured by medication, nor do they just disappear. The major chronic disease killers (heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes) are considered “largely preventable” with positive lifestyle habits, such as physical activity and proper nutrition.

HealthStat is a combination of 17 simple, point-of-care tests that enable Dr. Rodriguez to:
- Determine your risk for various digestive disorders and toxicities.
- Discover your level of free radical activity (damage from free radicals lead to cancer, pre-mature aging, and a myriad of other degenerative conditions).
- Asses your risk for immune function, infections, and atherosclerotic plaques.
- Evaluate your risk for osteoporosis and other related disorders caused by calcium deficiencies.
- Determine your ability to maintain consistent energy levels and other related disorders caused by adrenal dysfunction.
- Access your risk for diabetes and much more!
After testing, Dr. Rodriguez will provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your current health risk factors. You will also receive complete protocols in your customized plan for addressing these risks.
Components of the HealthStat Urinalysis Test:
Early Adrenal fatigue can sometimes be manifest with high salinity (sodium) content in urine. Advanced stages of Adrenal fatigue can be shown as low sodium levels. The Adrenal Salinity Test can test for both high and low levels.
This test measures the amount of indi- can in the urine. The putrefaction of undigested foods within the bowels creates indican. High levels of indican can indicate many conditions, including the presence of undigested foods, small intestine obstruction, and diminished bile flow and stomach disorders.
Free radicals are formed with almost every biochemical reaction in the body. Damage from free radicals can lead to cellular degen- eration that may result in allergies, arthritis, fatigue and many other conditions. High free radical levels can eventually contribute to the onset of cancer.
This urine test measures for the deficiency of Vitamin C. This vitamin is crucial to the health of the immune system, in the forma- tion of connective tissue, is essential for the cardiovascular system and is a very powerful antioxidant.
This test measures the level of calcium in your urine. Calcium is essential for many cellular functions including blood coagula- tion balance, lactation, activating enzymes and for the function of nerves and muscles.
This test determines the level of nitric oxide thru saliva with the use of a reagent strip. Nitric Oxide is a natu- rally produced factor along the blood stream walls (endothelium). It is a cardio-protec- tive factor that promotes vascular wellness and better performance from the same amount of oxygen use. Nitric oxide will rise and fall throughout the day; therefore, the challenge is to maintain a consistent elevated state by incorporating plant-based foods into your diet.
This test will determine your body fat percentage. Compara- tive studies using these measures produce results very close to the “gold standard” (under water weighing), but in a much simpler fashion; via piezo electrical resistance very accurate numbers can be had. Body fat percentages have been directly linked with Obesity and many of the top diseases today. Even a slight increase in body fat can increase heart disease risk factors two-fold.
In this test we'll determine the pH level of your urine. The filtrates of the blood are usually acidified in the kidneys from a pH of 7.4 to about 6 in the final urine. The urinary pH may rate from as high as 8.0 to as low as 4.5. Typically the urine is best if it is slightly on the alkaline side at 7.4.
Note that in some situations, alkaline urine is good. Kidney stones are less likely to form and some antibi- otics are more effective in alkaline urine; whereas, acid urine may help prevent the growth of certain types of bacteria.
In this test “specific gravity” refers to the urine density, or the amount of cells in the urine. Conducting this test provides insight to the kidneys ability to concentrate or dilute the urine. A specific gravity of 1.002 to 1.035 is considered normal if kidney function is normal. Levels above or below these may be due to dehydra- tion or over-hydration. Urine with high specific gravity is either contaminated, contains high levels of glucose, or is satu- rated with certain types of medications.
This test will show the glucose level in your urine. Less than 0.1% of glucose that is normally filtered by the kidneys appears in the urine. Glycosuria (excess sugar in the urine) generally indicates diabetes. When the blood levels of glucose are very high, some of the glucose begins to show up in the urine. The glucose and ketones tests are usually performed together. Large amounts of ketones may be present in uncontrolled diabetes.
Ketones in the urine result from either diabet- ic ketosis or some other form of calorie depri- vation (starvation) and are associated with high glucose findings in the urine.
This test will look for excess protein in the urine. This condition is called urea. Finding protein in the urine is probably the best test in screening for kidney disease. It is important to note, however, that there may be a number of other causes for increased proteins in the urine.
A positive nitrite test indicates that there may be a significant amount of bacteria in the urine. Certain types of bacteria are more likely to raise the nitrite level in the urine. Examples include E. coli and gram negative rods.
Normal urine contains only small amounts of urobilinogen. Elevated levels may indicate hemolysis and hepa- tocellular disease associated with preg- nancy related conditions such as hemo- lysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count (HELLP). Bile duct obstruction can decrease levels of urobilinogen. Excess levels of urobilino- gen and biliribin in the urine may signal liver disease.
This test will check for blood in the urine, which is known as hematuria. Hematuria is the presence of abnormal numbers of red blood cells in the urine. This may be due to glomerular damage, tumors, kidney trauma, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, or physical stress.
Biliruben in the urine is a sign of liver or bile duct disease. The presence of biliruben or urobilinogen in the urine indicates very poor liver function and must be taken very seriously.
White blood cells, or leukocytes, in the urine are referred to as pyuria. These may appear as an infection in the upper or lower urinary tract or inflammation of the kidneys. White blood cells may also appear in the urine from vaginal, cervical or urethral infections.
