Advanced Laboratory Analysis

To create individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach we recommend advanced laboratory testing which allows us to discover the underlying cause of disease and create personalised treatment plan that leads to improved patient outcome. “Knowing” empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the issue.

Blood Tests:

The Healthy Living Panel

This assessment is great for establishing a baseline of your current health and for monitoring progress to optimal health. It provides an overall of your health: red and white blood cell count, liver, pancreas, kidney, blood electrolytes, lipids, thyroid stimulating hormone, and metabolic health. Your healthcare provider may also recommend additional markers. That depends on the symptoms presented. Healthy Living Assessment must be collected after 12-14 hrs fasting.

Basic and Enhanced Thyroid Assessments

The thyroid gland is responsible for metabolism, life maintenance. When thyroid hormone levels are out of balance, so are you. Thyroid Assessments may be recommended when hyper- or hypothyroidism is suspected or when other hormone imbalances are present.

The Basic Thyroid Assessment includes:

  • Free Triiodothyronine (FT3)
  • Free Thyroxine (FT4)
  • TSH
  • Thyroperoxidase Antibody (TPO)

The Enhanced Thyroid Assessment includes the following tests:

  • Free Triiodothyronine (FT3)
  • Free Thyroxine (FT4)
  • TSH
  • Thyroperoxidase Antibody (TPO)
  • Reverse T3
  • Anti-Thyroglobulin

Lipids Assessment (Fasting preferred)

To assess the risk of cardiovascular disease the Lipids Assessment may be recommended reports on cholesterol, triglycerides, and the lipid transport proteins LDL and HDL.

Fatigue Assessment

The Fatigue Assessment provides insight into common causes of fatigue, which may be related to anemias, chronic mononucleosis, and hypothyroidism. The Fatigue Assessment may be recommended in the presence of low cortisol or when clinical signs and symptoms of general malaise are evident.

  • CBC & Differential
  • Iron/TIBC
  • Ferritin
  • Vitamin B12
  • TSH
  • Mono Spot

The Female Hormone Assessment (blood) includes:

  • Cortisol AM
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
  • Progesterone
  • Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate (DHEAS)
  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
  • Testosterone
  • Estradiol

The Female Fertility Assessment includes:

  • Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH)
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone, Total
  • Prolactin (PRL)
  • Free Testosterone
  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
  • Free Thyroxine (FT4)

Autoimmune Assessment:

  • Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA)
  • Antineutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies (ANCA)
  • Anti-Double Stranded DNA (anti-dsDNA)
  • Rheumatoid Factor (RF)

Metabolic Assessment (Fasting):

Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk factors that increase the chance of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes. Your healthcare provider may recommend the Metabolic Assessment (Fasting) if you have abdominal obesity, high blood sugar, elevated triglycerides, high blood pressure, and low HDL levels. The Metabolic Assessment may also be recommended in the presence of certain hormone patterns, including elevated cortisol, high androgen levels in women, and low androgen levels in men.

The Metabolic Assessment (blood, fasting) includes:

  • Gamma Glutamyl Transpeptidase (GGT)
  • Glucose (Fasting)
  • Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
  • hs-CRP
  • Fasting Insulin
  • Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)
  • Triglyceride

Allergy Testing

A food allergy/sensitivity is an inflammatory response of the immune system to a food trigger or allergen. It is only after period of continuous exposure to the trigger (chronic inflammatory response) we can experience symptoms.

1. Combo E-95 & A-95 Panel

The Combo Food Panel tests for 189 foods, plus a Candida Screen.

2. E-95 Basic Food Panel

The E-95 Basic Food Panel tests for 94 of the most commonly eaten foods, plus a Candida Screen.

3. A-95 Additional Food Panel

4. Inhalant Panel

The Inhalant Panel tests for 36 IgE Allergens, specific to the region you reside in.

5.  Food & Inhalant Combo Panel

The Food & Inhalant Combo Panel tests for 189 IgG4 food sensitivities, Candida, and 36 IgE inhalant allergens specific to your region.

The Rocky Mountain Analytical FST™ IgG Food Sensitivity test has three different options for testing IgG antibodies:

RMA FST™ Enhanced:

Our most comprehensive panel, the Enhanced panel tests for 222 different foods, including 80+ foods not available in the Basic panel. This panel is especially popular with patients who eat less meat, wheat, and refined sugar. This panel has the potential to identify more foods that the patient may be intolerant to; thereby providing you more robust information.

RMA FST™ Vegetarian:

Tests over 160 different foods including all of the vegetarian foods offered in the Enhanced panel, as well as dairy and eggs, but excluding fish/seafood and meat.

RMA FST Basic:

The Basic panel reports on 125 foods, including the most common food sensitivities in all categories: milk (cow, goat, and sheep), eggs, corn, and wheat.

Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity Panel 1+Panel 2

Tests Gluten/ Gliadin igG, Gliadin IgA, Transglutaminase IgA, Wheat IgE

Food Safe Bloodspot (finger prick)

Tests 96 different Allergens and Candida most commonly used for testing food allergies in children.

Comprehensive Cardiovascular risk profile:

This profile provides extensive evaluation of numerous biomarkers of abnormal lipid  metabolism, inflammation, clotting factors, kidney function and blood sugar levels, as well as the status of magnesium, iron and key antioxidants. The panel is unique in that it is the only one available that addresses the levels of oxidized LDL, small density LDL and lipoprotein(a) and lipoprotein (b). It includes Co Q-10, vitamin E (Tocopherol α and Tocopherol ¥), and C-reactive protein.

Note: Oxidized LDL (High blood levels of oxidized LDL is sensitive biomarkers of fatty plaque formation in the arteries).

Blood Glucose Reading:(fasting, postprandial-2 hours after meal)

Screening test for diabetes or hypoglycemia

Urine tests:

Urinalysis (in house)

Urinalysis is a simple test, which can provide important clinical information about:

  • Urinary bladder infections
  • Kidney disease
  • Monitoring of diabetes 15 URINE TESTS

Metabolomix+ 

An urinary nutritional evaluation that includes key organic acids and amino acids to evaluate the functional need for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, digestive support, amino acids, toxic and nutritional elements.

Studies suggest that even a balanced diet may not provide all essential nutrients and contribute to nutritional insufficiencies that may be at the root cause of complex chronic conditions.

The report also contains dynamic biochemical pathway charts for clearer understanding of:

  • Mood disorders
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Fatigue
  • Obesity and weight issues
  • Cognitive decline
  • Athletic optimization
  • Malnutrition

Organix® Comprehensive Profile:

The Organix® Comprehensive is a nutritional test providing insights into organic acids and a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Identifying nutritional deficiencies that can be easily corrected allows us to create customized program that leads to improved health outcomes preventing age related declines.

It is valuable for determining:

  • Functional vitamin and mineral status
  • Amino acid insufficiencies
  • Oxidative damage and antioxidant need
  • Liver detoxification capacity
  • Neurotransmitter metabolites
  • Mitochondrial energy production
  • Methylation sufficiency
  • CoQ10 status
  • Markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth

Urine Toxic Metals/Essentials Elements:

Toxic metals adversely affect every organ system in the body and disrupt the balance of nutrients. Analysis of the levels of toxic metals in urine after the administration of a chelating agent (EDTA, DMSA, DMPS) is used to evaluate the accumulation of toxic metals. The comparison of urine element concentrations before and after administration of a chelator can be used to estimate net retention of potentially toxic elements. Two chelating agents (EDTA and DMPS) are introduced intravenously and DMSA – orally prior to urine collection. Chelation Challenge (IV) 45min with CaEDTA, DMSA, DMPS.

Urine Iodine Test:

Iodine/Iodide is an essential element that is crucial for normal function of the thyroid gland and the healthy breast tissue. This test helps to assess urinary iodide excretion.
