In our office, we do not draw blood. We can refer to you a local clinic for blood draw or to a testing center. We recommend Quest Diagnostics or LabCorp but we partner with several other local blood draws. We recommend getting a physician referral for a complete metabolic panel (includes electrolytes, lipid panel, glucose, HgA1c, liver enzymes, among others) and bringing in the results for interpretation. In addition to a standard comprehensive chemistry panel, we recommend some additional tests:
- Anemia panel (includes iron, ferritin, folate, and vitamin B12)
- Vitamin D
Do You Offer Food Sensitivity Testing or Micronutrient Testing?
We can also refer you to a local clinic to get blood drawn if you would like to get a food sensitivity test called LEAP MRT. Dr. Wiss is a certified leap therapist. This test can be authorized remotely for most states.
We offer several other tests as well, including the Nutreval from Genova Labs. This functional test uses blood and urine to ascertain information about your need for vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and so much more. This includes an organic acid test which is a deep dive into your physiological processes.
We also recommend getting your microbiome tested. We can mail you a kit and this test can be taken at home. We can help interpret the results for you.
Another informative test is genetic testing through 23andMe. This test can tell you what health conditions you may be at higher risk for. It also describes the breakdown of your heritage as well as several wellness indicators. The raw data can then be analyzed for further recommendations.
If you did all of these tests together, Dr. Wiss can make very clear and targeted recommendations for you.
