Lab Testing

At Vitalogy, we believe that lab testing is an essential component of personalized, high-quality healthcare. Our team of experts uses specialized diagnostic tests to help diagnose conditions, monitor treatment outcomes, and optimize treatment plans. We offer routine blood work to all our patients, which can detect various issues, including inflammation, autoimmune diseases, and abnormalities in blood glucose, liver function, and iron stores. With our state-of-the-art lab testing services, you can feel confident that you receive the best possible care.

Common Lab Tests:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): A CBC measures the different types of cells in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It can detect issues such as anemia, infections, and blood cancers.
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): A CMP evaluates your liver, kidney, and metabolic function by measuring electrolytes, blood sugar, and liver enzymes. It can help detect liver or kidney disease, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders.
  • Ferritin (Iron Stores): Ferritin is a protein that stores iron in your body. Low ferritin levels can indicate iron deficiency anemia.
  • Thyroid Hormone (T3 & T4) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): These evaluate thyroid function and detect thyroid disorders, such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
  • Lipid Panel (Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL): A lipid panel measures your blood cholesterol levels and can assess your risk for heart disease and stroke.
  • Vitamin D: This test measures the level of vitamin D in your blood, which is essential for strong bones and overall health.
  • Complete Hormone Panel: A comprehensive hormone panel measures various hormones in your blood and can help detect hormonal imbalances, including those related to thyroid, adrenal, and reproductive function.Our medical clinic offers a wide range of routine lab testing beyond the list provided. You can order any lab test you need at our facility, and we have in-house phlebotomy services for drawing blood during appointments.

Hair Testing

At Vitalogy, we offer hair testing to provide a unique perspective on your health. Our hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) measures mineral content in hair to identify interrelationships between minerals and vitamins in your body. This analysis provides a comprehensive evaluation of significant mineral levels, ratios, and toxic metal exposure, which can inform treatment plans and help optimize your overall health. Our team will work with you to interpret your test results and develop a personalized plan to address any imbalances or deficiencies.

The Impact Of Trace Minerals On Your Metabolic Functions:

  • Zinc: Zinc plays a vital role in insulin production, storage, and secretion. It is also necessary for the production of growth hormones and DNA synthesis.
  • Magnesium: Magnesium is essential for normal muscular function, including the heart. A deficiency leads to an increased risk of abnormal heart conditions, anxiety, and nervousness.
  • Potassium: Potassium is critical for the transport of nutrients into cells. A deficiency can lead to muscular weakness, mild depression, and lethargy.
  • Sodium: Adequate amounts of sodium are required for normal health, but excess intake can be associated with hypertension. Sodium plays a key role in maintaining fluid balance.
  • Iron: Iron is necessary for the production of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. A deficiency can lead to anemia, fatigue, and decreased immune function.

Hair analysis can help us identify imbalances in these and other trace minerals, allowing us to develop a personalized plan for optimizing your metabolic functions and overall health.

What To Expect From Your Hair Analysis

We obtain a hair sample by cutting the first inch and a half of hair closest to the scalp at the nape of your neck. This sample is processed in a licensed clinical laboratory using a series of chemical and high-temperature digestive procedures. Our team uses state-of-the-art equipment and methods to ensure your test results are accurate and precise, giving you a comprehensive evaluation of your mineral levels, ratios, and toxic metal exposure.
