CUSTOM MICRONUTRIENT TESTING

Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells. These tests allow your nutritional assessment for a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.) Contact us for more information. Cost may vary based on your insurance coverage.

What is Micronutrient Testing?

Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells.  Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.

Vitamins

Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Folate, Pantothenate, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin K

Chromium, Fructose Sensitivity, Glucose-Insulin Metabolism

Fatty Acids

Oleic Acid

IMMUNIDEX™

Immune Response Score

Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to affect the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis.

MTHFR Test

MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate – it is involved in the metabolism of folate and homocysteine. The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid).

Risks Associated with MTHFR Variants/High Homocysteine:

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Venous and Arterial Thrombosis

  • Who Should be Tested?

  • Those who have a familial history of cardiovascular disease, stroke or thrombosis.

  • Cerebral Vascular Disease (Stroke)

  • Methotrexate Toxicity for Cancer Therapy

  • Those with high homocysteine levels.

  • Those who are candidates for long-term methotrexate therapy.
