Allergies, vitamin deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and stress levels – these issues affect everyone in one way or another. With the advent of new medical technology, it’s easier now more than ever to track specific concerns that affect your health and come up with a plan of action.
Diagnostic testing is a noninvasive way to assess if your health is normal and determine the areas in which your body’s essential components are lacking. After a diagnostic test, we provide professional consultation about your health and recommended treatments, helping you to live your best life yet.
How Does Diagnostic Testing Work?
Diagnostic tests are performed to confirm or rule out conditions, illnesses, deficiencies and allergies. They can be used to give a more specific and customized report of your health and create a treatment plan centered around your needs.
With the right diagnostic test, you can learn about food sensitivities, determine which diet works for you based on your DNA and even figure out which nutrients you need to supplement. It’s quick and easy – diagnostic testing is done by drawing blood or swabbing your cheek for saliva. The turnaround time for results is between one and 30 days, depending on which tests are performed.
Why Do We Need Diagnostic Testing?
To combat health concerns and conditions, we have to know where they begin. This starts by checking for areas in which we are deficient, so we can more accurately understand what we can improve.
With continued research into allergies and how profoundly they affect our day-to-day lives, more and more people are seeking out allergy panels. Through IgE and IgG antibody detection, we can gather more insight into your body and identify any food, seasonal, environmental or animal allergies you may have. We can also use new diagnostic technology such as ImmunoCAP and Foodprint to find out your reaction to certain foods.
Salivary hormone testing is the most reliable medium for measuring hormones, one of the most integral components of our health. An imbalance in hormones can lead to conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS and fertility issues, to name a few. With salivary hormone testing, we can accurately measure the delivery of hormones to receptors in your body. This information helps us identify imbalances and treat health concerns driven by specific hormonal imbalances.
