I am a registered practitioner with a number of diagnostic testing laboratories and offer functional testing as part of a nutritional therapy consultation. Functional testing is in keeping with personalized nutrition and functional medicine. Testing is not a first option but in some instances it may bring greater clarity and serve to deliver a more tailored solution to your individual needs. My role in providing this service is to facilitate an opportunity, where appropriate, for you to test privately or refer you for testing, and to interpret the results for you. Regular GP blood tests are often limited in range and may be offered only at the doctor’s discretion.
Test fees vary and are additional to the consultation fee. In some instances but not all, a blood draw is required and where this is more than a finger prick the services of a phlebotomist will be an additional cost.
Below are examples of some of the tests available through my practice:
- Food Intolerance Tests
- Full Nutritional Evaluation
- Full Thyroid Panel which includes TSH, Free T4, Free T3, TPO Antibodies
- Vitamin D
- Cardiovascular Health Profile
- Adrenal Stress Profile
- CDSA Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis
- Female Hormone Panel
- SIBO – Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth
