Abstract

  Metabolic diseases like hypertension, excess weight, obesity, type-2 diabetes, and vascular diseases have increased in prevalence and incidence rapidly, to epidemic proportions worldwide. Studies from several laboratories, have demonstrated altered vascular flow, development of endothelial dysfunction, hardening of the arteries, and subclinical atherosclerosis as the earliest signs of vascular disease. In our efforts to find noninvasive diagnostic tools, to detect metabolic risks we have been testing emerging technologies, including activity trackers like Fitbit, Apple watch, thermal imaging, AGE-Reader (www.diagnoptics.com), as well as several LD-Technology products. We have validated several of their products, for monitoring metabolic risks such as blood pressure, impaired glucose tolerance, lipid abnormalities, insulin resistance, cardiac functions, autonomous risk, sympathetic risk, endothelial dysfunction, and for computing wellness index. In an earlier article we described the use of wellness screening in determining the benefits of structured wellness training on cardiometabolic risks and wellness index. In this study, we have evaluated the effect of transdermal delivery of phytochemical on autonomous nervous system score, vascular function score, and wellness index. Commercially available rejuvenation oil, applied on the skin, showed significant improvement in autonomous nervous score, vascular function score, as well as overall wellness index. We would like to include several other noninvasive technologies for conducting a battery of tests, to improve early diagnosis of metabolic risks, as well as better management of the observed risks, and to follow the progression of these cardiometabolic risks and their regression.
