You may have read my recent article Reading Between the Lines of Your Blood Work Results and wondered what I might see on your blood work. You may have even recently gone to your doctor who ran blood work and said you’re just fine, even though you feel far less than. Some of you have contacted me to look at your blood work, so I wanted to list exactly which markers I look at to give you a complete nutritional assessment.
Very few patients in the past 20 years have come in with what I would consider a thorough panel, when looking from a functional standpoint. Conventional doctors are looking for outright pathology. I’m looking for subtle changes in your blood work to identify areas that are out of balance and may be causing symptoms.
So, here are the markers I’m looking for:
Basic Functional Blood Chemistry Nutrition Panel
- Uric Acid
- Total Protein
- A/G Ratio
- Total Bilirubin
- Alk Phos
- Serum Iron
- Iron Saturation
- Total Cholesterol
- Free T3
- Free T4
- Total T3
- Total T4
- T3 Uptake
- Thyroglobulin Antibody
- Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy
. . .just to name a few
Significant cash discounts are available. If you’d like to use your insurance, please ask your primary care practitioner to order a panel and we can review your results.
Why do you need such a big panel?
When looking at blood chemistry from a functional or nutritional standpoint, we need to correlate a number of different markers, many of which are missing from regular panels. In addition, we need a thorough look at what’s going on with the body in order to determine where your symptoms are originating. This type of analysis will provide enough information to make science based nutritional recommendations, supplement suggestions and lifestyle modifications that will set you on the road back to optimal health.
I’m ready. . .how do I get started?
To have your blood work analyzed by Dr Lisa from a Functional Blood Chemistry outlook, please book a New Patient Appointment. You will be invited to the patient portal when you will be able to complete online paperwork and upload whatever labs you may have. If labs need to be ordered, lets discuss your case first so we can order everything we need.
