5. Free T3

6. Total T3

7. Resin T3 uptake

8. Reverse T3

9. Thyroglobulin

10. Anti-thyroglobulin antibody

  • Hyperlipidemia

  • Coronary artery disease

  • Hypertension

  • Metabolic Syndrome

  • Family history of CVD

  • Excess abdominal fat

  • Obesity

  • Insulin resistance

  • Fatty Liver Disease
     

Cardiometabolic Panel includes:

1. Lipoprotein Fractionation

2. Lipoprotein Particle Numbers

3. Total LDL Particles

4. Total HDL Particles

5. Triglycerides

6. Lipoprotein (a)

7. Leptin

8. Apolipoprotein B

Women's Health Assessment

​Conditions:

  • Menopause

  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

  • Infertility

  • Menstrual irregularities

  • Adrenal dysfunction

  • Mood disorders

  • Insomnia

  • Libido

  • Fatigue

  • Changes in hair and skin

  • Weight loss or gain 

​Hormone Panel includes:

  1. Cholesterol

  2. DHEAS

  3. Estradiol

  4. Progesterone

  5. Testosterone

  6. Vitamin D

  7. Cortisol

  8. Melatonin

Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ (CHI) measures important hormones and hormone conjugates that allow evaluation of metabolized hormones, insight into hormone stores, and a view into liver function. CHI also includes many clinically meaningful cortisol measures including those that may inform on cortisol awakening response, recovery and repair and cortisol conjugation pattern. CHI also includes 17-OH-pregnenolone, an important precursor steroid, along with clinically relevant estrogen ratios that provide insights into breast cancer risk and estrogen metabolism.

 

The Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ requires a 4 urine samples, collected over a period of two days, eliminating the need for a cumbersome 24-hour collection.

Note the combination of items will depend on the patient.

Men's Health Assessment

​The Men’s Health provides insight via the biomarkers most relevant to men’s health. Men typically suffer heart attacks about seven years earlier than women, making lipid measurements an important part of the panel. In Canada, prostate cancer represents 21% of new cancers in men and hyperprolactinemia is a common finding with impotence or infertility. The Men’s Health may be recommended when androgens are low, estrogens are high or when signs and symptoms related to sexual or cardiac health are noted.

The Men’s Health includes:

  1. Bioavailable Testosterone

  2. Cholesterol

  3. FIT

  4. HDL

  5. LDL

  6. PSA

  7. Triglycerides

Blood Assessment

The Hematology Assessment provides insight into common markers of blood health. The Complete Blood Count (CBC) reports on the health of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Iron, vitamin B12 biomarkers are included to assess for anemias. The Hematology Assessment may be recommended in the presence of suspected anemias, nutritional deficiencies or any conditions related to blood health (e.g. infections, leukemias, clotting disorders).

The Hematology Assessment includes:

  1. CBC + Differential

  2. Ferritin

  3. Iron/TIBC

  4. Vitamin B12

FOOD INTOLERANCE 

&

SENSITIVITY TESTING

IgG, IgM, IgA, IgE testing for a variety of foods. Testing immediate and delayed onset allergic reactions. 

There is a growing body of evidence to support the clinical benefits of eliminating IgG reactive foods from the diet.

In an IgG reaction, the IgG antibodies bind to food antigens creating antibody-antigen complexes. These complexes are normally removed by immune system cells called macrophages. However, if complexes are present in large numbers and the reactive food is still being consumed, the macrophages can’t remove them quickly enough. The food antigen-antibody complexes accumulate and can be deposited in body tissues. Once in tissues, these complexes can trigger inflammation, which may be responsible for a wide variety of symptoms.

MICRONUTRIENT TEST

Test your vitamin and mineral status. This one of a kind test, measures your nutrient status over the course of several months for a more accurate assessment than just a snapshot.

MTHFR GENETIC TESTING

Test your DNA so you are more informed about the right nutrients for you unique needs.
