Body Composition Testing
Body Composition Testing is recommended for better insight into your health.
Based upon your results, you will be provided a personalized meal plan, weight loss goals, and fitness strategies to keep you on track and promote long-term success.
Subsequent testing is typically done every 4-6 weeks to help determine the effectiveness of your nutrition and fitness programming and make timely adjustments accordingly.
The Micronutrient test measures long-term nutrient status which shows us the level of the functional (usable & absorbed) amounts for 35 different nutrients. This is a better representation of nutrient status than traditional labs and will help us identify any nutrient deficiencies that could be contributing to behavior, cognition, weight regulation, or other symptoms.
Poor blood sugar regulation, unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels, and inflammation often present long before a diagnosis. The CardioMetabolic test helps us define your risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and stroke, progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation.
Hormone & Thyroid Testing
Comprehensive male and female hormone panels that reveal the overall state of your hormonal balance. Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease – mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can initiate a cascade of events that alters other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key.
Thyroid hormones directly regulate every cell in our body as most basic functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. We also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to the thyroid which can detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of gut health in relation to the immune system, mental health, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders, skin conditions, cancer, and weight regulation.
GI Map uses FDA-cleared DNA analysis to identify the microorganisms—bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites, as well as immune and digestive markers—that cause disease or that disrupt normal microbial balance in the gastrointestinal microbiome.
Signs of an unhealthy gut:
- Unintentional weight gain or loss
- Sleep disturbances
- Skin irritation
- Autoimmune Disorders
- Food Intolerances
