Specialized Lab Testing
Naturopathic doctors use unique lab tests to help us get a picture of what’s going on inside your body at a molecular level. We can provide the standard tests that most medical doctors do, but to get a clearer picture on your health, we also offer tests that most other health care providers don’t- which is great for you! These tests tend to very helpful in figuring out what’s at the root cause of your illness and coming up with a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Lab testing can be a very effective way to understand what’s happening with your health!
Some tests of the specialized tests we provide include:
- Hormone testing using Labrix by Doctors Data
- GI Testing using either GI Map or Vibrant America
- Food Sensitivity Testing using Vibrant America or US BioTek
- SIBO testing using Aerodiagnostics
- Mold and mycotoxin testing using Great Plains Lab
Which tests we order, if any, will depend on your specific symptoms and our best clinical judgment. We only order tests that we deem necessary to help you reach your health goals as quickly and safely as possible.
Standard blood tests
We can order the same standard blood tests that you get at your medical doctor’s office, and these tests are often a great first step in assessing your general level of health and where any problems might be. They’re usually less expensive than some of the more focused tests, and can guide the direction we take your treatment in.
General test screening often includes:
CBC, CMP, TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Lipid panel, Vitamin D, HbA1c, ESR and/or hsCRP, Ferritin, Iron panel, (male and female hormones if needed), AM cortisol and urinalysis.
