Functional Medicine Tests

Functional medicine labs are a set of specialized laboratory tests used to help diagnose and treat underlying imbalances or dysfunctions in the body that may be contributing to chronic health conditions. These tests often go beyond standard blood work and can include assessments of hormones, nutrient levels, digestive function, immune system function, toxic exposures, and genetic markers.

Functional medicine labs can provide valuable information for doctors and patients in developing personalized treatment plans to address underlying health issues.

– Micro nutrient test: This can include testing for deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that can impact overall health and wellbeing.

– Food sensitivity testing: This evaluates how the body responds to certain foods and can help identify foods that may be causing inflammation or contributing to chronic health conditions.
