This blood test measures Vitamin B12 levels. All of the water-soluble B vitamins work as a team to help promote healthy nerves, skin, eyes, hair, liver, muscle tone and cardiovascular function. Vitamin B12 is necessary for red blood cell production and neural function. Deficiencies in Vitamin B12 may be due to an inherited factor, limited dietary intake or problems with absorption (due to lack of intrinsic factor or gastric secretions in the stomach). A Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause anemia, neurologic disorders and an elevation in the inflammatory marker homocysteine, which has been implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. If B12 is deficient, the body can have a difficult time using the B vitamin, folate.
This test is used to evaluate the amount of Vitamin A in the blood.
This fasting blood test is used to evaluate Vitamin A & Carotene levels. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin also known as retinol.
This blood test measures folate levels within blood. Folate is categorized as a B vitamin. Folate is needed for the synthesis of DNA in rapidly dividing cells.
Online Lab Testing: DNA Methylation Pathway Profile allows clinicians to screen their patients for a variety of genetic changes (single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs) that may impact the function of important biochemical processes such as methionine metabolism, detoxification, hormone balance and Vitamin D function. The presence or absence of SNPs may modify disease risk. The risks may be reduced by lifestyle changes, and inefficient biochemical processes can be supported by diet and nutritional supplements to maximize the functions of metabolic pathways.
This fasting blood test measures lipid (or blood fats) levels. Contrary to cholesterol’s negative reputation, our bodies cannot function without it. Cholesterol is needed to produce Vitamin D, steroid hormones and bile acids. Cholesterol is needed to produce brain cells. Low levels of cholesterol are linked to depression, aggression and global amnesia because nerve conduction and transmission is affected.
This is our most popular health and wellness screening panel. It includes the basics such as a CBC, CMP 14, Lipids (Cholesterol), Hemoglobin A1c (HA1c) and a urinalysis as well as the inflammatory markers CRP-hs and Homocysteine. This panel also includes an expanded review of thyroid function (TSH, T4, Free T4 & FT3), Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. For more information on labs, please review the Individual Lab list.
Dr. Amy’s Thyroid Plus Panel includes these tests: TSH Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies, Thyroglobulin Antibodies, Ferritin, Vitamin D3 (OH), Selenium – RBC, Zinc – RBC, Magnesium – RBC and a Vitamin A.
Here is our basic health and wellness screen. This is a great panel for a basic health and wellness physical, a pre-employment physical or for your own personal information and record keeping. This screen includes a CBC, CMP, Lipids (cholesterol), TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), as well as C-reactive protein (CRP -Cardio) to look for inflammation and a urinalysis to check kidney function. As in all of our health screens, we include a Vitamin D. For more information please review Individual Labs.
