Well B helps you to optimize your well-being and your health
Your lifestyle is reflected in the biochemical composition of your blood.
Your daily habits, diet and exercise, alter your metabolic profile.
Your metabolic profile gives you information about your health status.
Doing Well B tests will not just allow you to monitor changes in your metabolism, it will also lead to the generation of a history of your individual lifestyle responses, allowing us to provide you with fully personalized recommendations on a continuous basis to achieve your goals.

Professional health FAQ
Individuals who achieve a high-risk outcome should perform an update after the proposed interventions, generally after 6 months.
Individuals who obtain a low risk outcome but who have some metabolic risk factor, usually after 1 or 2 years.
It is noteworthy that, unlike the genetic tests, the information of the kits varies with time, the intervention and its response, so the best way to have an updated follow-up is the individualized comparison of the results of the same patient before and after a certain intervention.
The Well B Obesity kit is suitable for those who are overweight or obese, or those who have an abnormal distribution of fat, being more dangerous when it accumulates in the abdominal area, detected, e.g., through the measurement of waist circumference.
The Well B Diabetes kit is suitable for people who are sedentary, obese and overweight, for those who have a family history of diabetes, for those that have high blood pressure, or for high risk ethnic groups.
If you are already suffering from a glycemic alteration (either a glucose intolerance or altered fasting blood glucose), it is recommended to use the Well B Diabetes kit, as it can detect changes in metabolism following lifestyle interventions (Diet and physical activity) or pharmacological.
As you well know, obesity and overweight are defined as an abnormal or excessive accumulation of fat which, in a variable way with other parameters (age, gender, family history, nutritional history, adipose tissue location, and comorbidities) can be detrimental to one’s health. Obesity can be considered as a risk factor for many chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, some mood disorders and cancer.
Depending on where this fat is accumulated, sometimes even without being overweight or obese, the person is susceptible to these diseases because it involves a change in metabolism that can be detected by the Well B Obesity kit, although there are no changes in the most established risk factors, such as glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Thus, it can stratify the risk of metabolic changes associated with excess fat that are harmful to one’s health, and in an anticipatory way, notify your patient and take measures aimed at improving their situation.
Insulin resistance is a risk factor for the development of diabetes and its comorbidities, which include cardiovascular diseases and some dementias such as Alzheimer’s. The scientific community believes that, the sooner diabetes and prediabetes are detected, the individual will have a better prognosis, reducing the progression of hyperglycemia and delaying their worsening.
Advances in the omics techniques offered by the kit allow to detect the metabolic risk of suffer from insulin resistance before being detected in a standard test. Thus, the Well B Diabetes kit can detect the metabolic changes associated with insulin resistance and measure the improvements produced by lifestyle interventions (diet and physical activity).
The results will be sent directly to the health professional from the laboratory, through a report indicating the metabolic risk and the interventions proposed. It will be adjusted according to the knowledge of the individual characteristics of the patient (allergies, history of intolerance, digestive problems with specific foods, dietary habits, among others).
Your health professional will have more information about your metabolism and may recommend interventions in a more personalized way, which is not possible with other systems of biochemical analysis from the market.
