As part of my Nutritional Assessment I use following ADVANCED clinical lab tests:

In addition to  your recent routine labs from your PCP or other physician, I could order some advanced lab tests in order to assess your nutrient and vitamin/mineral deficiencies.


The cutting edge of clinical testing is Organic Acids test, which could  detect early markers for critical vitamin and mineral deficiencies, oxidative stress markers, neurotransmitter production levels, markers of intestinal dysbiosis - yeast or bacterial overgrowth, as well as give and idea about the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Dietary and lifestyle modifications based on the results of OA tests could lead to significant improvements in the levels of pain/fatigue, regulation of Gastrointestinal function, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain. 


The Great Plains Laboratory has a great deal of resources and recommendations on specific testing for Organic Acids, Mycotoxin profile, Glyphosate testing, toxic chemical profiles etc.

The Genova Diagnostics is another great provider of comprehensive and innovative clinical laboratory services for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of complex chronic diseases. 

I recommend NutrEval and GI Effects tests to many of my clients and could order these tests for direct delivery to your home.

COMPREHENSIVE STOOL ANALYSIS

GI-MAP™  is the Comprehensive stool analysis that I recommend  and order for  almost everyone scheduling an appointment.  The GI-MAP™ (GI-Microbial Assay Plus) stool test utilizes cutting edge, Quantitative PCR technology to provide a true DNA/PCR based stool analysis which provides actionable information to the clinician regarding the microbiota and how it relates to many inflammatory, autoimmune, metabolic, cardiovascular, and other chronic diseases. This test is able to provide invaluable information and identify pathogens, viruses, parasites, normal and opportunistic bacteria, H Pylori with virulence factors and drug resistant strains etc.

ASSESSMENT OF SEX AND ADRENAL HORMONES

Millions of women and men suffer from hormonal imbalances. Whether it is menopause, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, premenstrual symptoms (PMS), mood swings, or depression, these symptoms can lead to more serious problems if misdiagnosed. Identifying the root cause of chronic health issues is certainly correctable, but only if properly identified.  comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites.  It also includes the daily, free cortisol pattern, organic acids, melatonin (6-OHMS), and 8-OHdG.  DUTCH is the most complete assessment of sex and adrenal hormones, along with their metabolites, in one easy to administer test that does not need a blood draw. Simple dried urine collection process is great for baseline measurements of hormonal imbalances. After utilizing the DUTCH test, you will be able to work with your medical provider to continue to track and evaluate hormone levels, ensuring they are at their optimum balance.
