Functional Laboratory Testing

Functional laboratory testing is a diagnostic approach used in integrative and functional medicine to gain deeper insights into a person's health and well-being. Unlike conventional lab tests that primarily focus on diagnosing diseases or conditions, functional testing aims to identify imbalances, dysfunctions, or underlying factors that may contribute to health issues before they manifest as diseases.

Functional laboratory testing involves a wide range of tests that assess various aspects of an individual's health, including:

  1. Hormone Levels: Assessing hormone imbalances that can affect energy, mood, metabolism, and more.

  2. Nutritional Status: Evaluating nutrient deficiencies that impact overall health and specific conditions.

  3. Gut Health: Analysing gut microbiome composition, digestive function, and identifying any microbial imbalances.

  4. Immune Function: Investigating immune system activity and potential dysregulation.

  5. Toxicity Levels: Measuring exposure to environmental toxins and heavy metals.

  6. Genetic Markers: Identifying genetic predispositions to certain health conditions.

  7. Inflammatory Markers: Detecting chronic inflammation, a common factor in various chronic diseases.

  8. Stress Markers: Assessing the impact of stress on the body's systems.

Functional laboratory testing offers a personalised approach to health assessment, allowing tailored  interventions and treatments based on an individual's unique biochemical makeup.

It also enables a comprehensive understanding of the root causes of health issues, empowering individuals to take proactive steps toward optimal well-being and prevention.
