The He-Profile© is composed of the following tests:
DHEA-S is the "adrenal anti stress, pro immunity, longevity hormone", according to Dr. Schandl. The immune system is impaired without adequate amounts of this hormone. Most, if not all cancer patients and those in the process of developing cancer have very low or no DHEA in their blood.
IGF-1 (Somatomedin-C) is the human growth hormone responsible for bone growth, youth, strength, and vigo
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) In general, serum PSA levels increase due to physical changes to prostate architecture caused by trauma, infection, inflammation, prostate manipulation, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) or malignancy. The test levels to these changes can serve as the basis for the clinical use of the test. The PSA concentration in the serum of healthy men is many folds lower than that in seminal fluid. PSA in seminal fluid is predominantly free or uncomplexed. In serum, the majority of PSA is bound to inhibitors such as 1-antichymotrypsin and macroglobulin. Measured total PSA consists of free and bound PSA.
Medical scientists found that one in four patients with normal rectal exam and normal PSA levels between 4.0 and 10.0 ng/mL, already have prostate cancer. A Free-PSA determination may more likely indicate the presence or absence of prostate cancer. A cut-off point of 25% Free-PSA was established as demarkation line between a normal and abnormal result. Furthermore, it was found that 20% of men with benign disease as determined by biopsy and normal DRE (direct rectal examination) and a total PSA between 4 and 10 ng/mL presented with a Free-PSA value greater than 25%, i.e. normal.
Percent Free-PSA determination may establish relative risk of prostate cancer.
Estradiol - The chief female reproductive hormone. Estradiol's presence may play a major role in the development of prostatic cancer. Therefore, it is essential to measure its level especially in men over 40 years of age. If there is too much of it in the blood it not only could contribute to the development of prostate cancer but it will also contribute to demasculanization and a diminished libido.
Progesterone is the second most important female hormone with numerous metabolic functions. One of these is increasing cerebral sugar metabolism. This hormone is not only important for the female but also for men. Actually, its presence contributes to the prevention of prostate cancer by modulating estrogen's carcinogenic effects. In a sense it balances out possible estrogen over-production by the male.
Total Testosterone - The male reproductive hormone. Testosterone exists in serum both free and bound to albumin and to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) (testosterone binding globulin). Unbound (free) testosterone is the active moiety. Free as well as total testosterone can be measured. Usual testosterone assays measure both bound and unbound levels.
