Orthodox & Specialty Labwork
I sometimes recommend conventional blood work in order to assess thyroid function and autoimmune thyroid conditions; basic metabolic parameters such as kidney and liver function; red and white blood cell counts; vitamins D3, B12, and other nutrient levels; levels of inflammation in the body; electrolyte balance, and so forth.
I also work with certain specialty labs, including:
- Genova Diagnostics: salivary Adrenal Stress Profiles, comprehensive stool testing, Candida testing, hormone evaluation panels, Nutrevals (Nutritional Evaluations), etc. Genova Diagnostics offers an Easy Pay A insurance option whereby many of their tests are made available at a significantly discounted rate if the patient's insurance company qualifies for this program. I make this insurance option available to my patients.
- Cyrex Labs: state of the art comprehensive food sensitivity testing, neurological autoimmune testing, in-depth gluten autoimmune and gluten cross-reactive foods, etc.
- Doctor's Data: toxic metals and essentials elements assessment, comprehensive stool testing, cardiovascular risk profiles, and more.
- US BioTek: Environmental Pollutants Profile, global food antibody testing, Urinary Metabolic Panel, and more.
