Many years of scientific and clinical research demonstrate that Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a powerful and natural cancer fighter. Once known solely for this benefit, newer studies have established its value for inflammatory and fibrosis related conditions like cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, liver cirrhosis, diabetes and arthritis. This is because MCP is a natural blocker of
In the last few decades, hundreds of studies have proven that Galectin-3 plays a role in cancer development. In small amounts, galectins are perfectly healthy and actually aid cellular communication, and healthy growth and development. However, studies show that excess Galectin-3 in the body directly promotes unhealthy cell behaviors such as inflammation, uncontrolled abnormal cell growth, colony formation (tumors) and metastasis, among others.

Galectin-3 Testing for Health and Disease
The Galectin-3 serum blood test is a significant biomarker used to measure the risk, progression and cardiovascular disease, metastatic cancer and conditions related to inflammation and fibrosis. Because scientists and medical doctors recognize Galectin-3 as a significant target in the management and treatment of these conditions, Galectin-3 testing is an important addition to routine screening panels. The test itself is inexpensive and covered by most health insurance carriers.

Where to test?
For patients: Galectin-3 blood tests must be ordered from a standard medical lab by your primary care physician or health provider. For complete testing information, test interpretation and referral materials to take to your doctor, contact client services at Health Diagnostics Laboratory (1-877-443-5227).
For practitioners: LabCorp of America offers Galectin-3 testing with other routine serum tests. Galectin-3 test code is 004110. Health Diagnostics Laboratory (1-877-443-5227) also offers Galectin-3 testing and provides detailed information to assist in interpretation and analysis, along with information on targeted health solutions for addressing elevated Galectin-3.
