What Kind of Testing do you Offer at Nutrition in Recovery?
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 Genetic 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. David Wiss is a certified leap therapist. We offer several other tests as well, including micronutrient testing through Cell Systems Sciences.
We also recommend getting your microbiome tested through Microbiome Labs. They will 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.
