Diagnostic Blood Test:

GlycA (NMR)

GlycA is a novel composite marker of inflammation that reflects enzymatic glycosylation, the process by which sugar attaches to proteins. GlycA reflects the serum concentration and glycosylation state of five major acute-phase inflammatory proteins (a1‐acid glycoprotein, haptoglobin, a1‐antitrypsin, a1‐antichymotrypsin, and transferrin).
