Functional Lab Tests
A Representative List of Tests
• Food and Inhalant Intolerance Test (IgG, IgE):
Allergic reactions can change over time, sometimes disappearing altogether. However, you may have underlying allergies that are contributing to muscle and joint pain, fatigue, weight gain, hyperactivity, skin irritations, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome and you don’t even know it. This test can determine what foods and inhalants your body may be intolerant to.
• Micronutrient Test:
Tired of not knowing which supplements can best enhance your health and life? This test can determine what nutrients your body may be deficient in so you can get a customized nutritional or supplement plan that is right for you.
• Gastrointestinal Candida Antibody Test:
Candida is a yeast found in the gut. It affects the immune system. Symptoms include fatigue and foggy head, mood swings, digestive problems, fungal infections and bladder infections.
• Gluten Sensitivity Test:
If you have digestive problems, you may want to get tested for gluten sensitivity. This test detects an increased sensitivity to gluten, a constituent of wheat, rye, and barely, leading to digestive problems and celiac disease.
• Secretory IgA Test:
Chronic intestinal infections due to bacteria, yeast, or even parasites, food sensitivities, aging, antibiotics, medications, and stress decrease SigA levels. SigA is an important indicator of digestive immune function. Low levels of SigA can lead to recurrent infections and even food intolerances. This test determines the level of SigA in your blood.
• Intestinal Permeability Test:
Food allergies, arthritis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome can all be attributed to leaky gut syndrome. This test is a urine analysis to detect the presence of leaky gut syndrome in your intestines.
• Digestion Profile Test:
Your gut is an important component of your health, wellbeing, and vitality. This test includes a stool analysis, evaluating digestion, absorption, and metabolism of nutrients, gut bacteria, and yeast activity.
• Adrenal Stress Index Test:
How well does your body deal with emotional, physical, or chemical stress? This saliva test assesses levels of adrenal stress hormones to determine just that. If your adrenal glands are functioning at sub-optimal levels, you may experience allergies, chronic fatigue, insomnia, depression and anxiety.
• Female Hormone Test:
Hormonal imbalances contribute to a whole host of conditions including but not limited to PMS, menopause, endometriosis, infertility, fibroids, polycystic ovaries, osteoporosis, weight gain, water retention, breast tenderness or breast swelling. This saliva test measures levels of progesterone, estrogen and testosterone over a 28-day period.
• Cardiovascular Assessments:
Knowledge is power when it comes to this assessment. Many heart disease risk factors can be reduced or eliminated if discovered early. These assessments will determine your cholesterol, homocysteine, CoQ10, and insulin levels to provide a comprehensive picture of your heart health and cardiovascular disease risk.
