Micronutrient Testing – What Your Body is Trying to Tell You

Posted by on Jul 7, 2015 in Functional Medicine, Nutrition | 0 comments


Nutrition is at the core of integrative health and SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing is one of the most advanced diagnostic tool available. As previously mentioned, micronutrient testing looks inside a white blood cell to see what the your nutritional status is and measures vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, carbohydrate metabolism, oxidative stress levels, and can even assess immune function.

While the genetic test can help you understand what diseases or deficiencies you might be prone to and the resulting supplements or lifestyle changes that could help, micronutrient testing pinpoints what your body is lacking. The testing looks at your nutrition status over the past 90 days, so if you had a really good week or a really bad week, don’t worry that won’t alter the test.

SpectraCell’s test is quite comprehensive and analyzes your blood for the following:

This test does require you to have a blood sample drawn, but you can easily identify a facility to have this done on Spectracell’s website using your zipcode: http://www.spectracell.com/patients/find-a-drawsite/.  When you show up at the blood draw site, you will present them with the box that your test comes in and they take care of the rest! Once your blood is drawn, they will send the sample off to be tested and the results will be sent to Dr. Deanna.
