Results are easier to read and understand because they include explanations of what each measure is and what it indicates. By using advanced diagnostic testing, we turn hope into results! This is the future of lab testing and based on proven science.


Is Advanced Diagnostic Testing Right For You?

Our bodies are complex, so different root causes may show up as symptoms that seem typical or irregular for that particular ailment. This is especially the case if one source of disease or dysfunction is interacting with another. The best way for our practitioners to discover deficiencies is to use advanced diagnostic tests.

Functional Medicine testing goes beyond what traditional medicine is able to offer

Thyroid Testing

Thyroid dysfunction has a wide array of symptoms and can be difficult to diagnose. Symptoms may present as weight gain or loss, dry skin, hair loss, depression, or fatigue. A lack of proper diagnosis can occur within conventional medicine because usually only TSH and T4 tests are performed. Our advanced thyroid panel includes testing for TSH, T4, free T4, total T3, free T3, reverse T3, and thyroid antibodies. This advanced panel provides a comprehensive view of your thyroid to understand your complete thyroid health and check for possible autoimmune thyroid problems.

Hormone Testing

Hormones play a crucial role in our health, for both men and women, but most of the time, they go unnoticed if they are properly balanced. However, if levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone become unbalanced, symptoms can be severe. This may result in acne, hair loss, weight gain, low sex drive, infertility, anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, or changes in the menstrual cycle. Our providers use saliva and advanced blood tests to assess the relationship of these hormones to determine whether or not they are at healthy levels or if treatment is needed.

Gastrointestinal Testing

Gut health is essential to the health of the whole body. Understanding how your gut interprets and absorbs nutrients can be key in addressing the root cause of your symptoms. If your gut microbiome is imbalanced, it can lead to a whole slew of symptoms. Comprehensive stool analysis and advanced blood tests can assess your gut function, especially issues like inflammation and malabsorption. Therefore, advanced gut testing can be extremely helpful for those who have IBS, cardiovascular disease, weight problems, autoimmune disease, or diabetes.
