Spectracell Nutritional Testing
We offer patients the most advanced nutritional testing available from Spectracell Laboratories. Too often patients are taking vitamins and minerals without knowledge of which vitamins or minerals they actually need more of, or less of. Traditional testing is helpful, but it does not indicate how well your body is utilizing various nutrients. Two patients with the same serum levels of Zinc, for example, can have different functional levels.
The micronutrient test from Spectracell enables us to help patients with functional deficiencies. The result is much more informed and effective nutritional guidance from our providers. Most insurance plans do offer coverage for micronutrient tests.
In addition to the micronutrient testing, a genetic test which measures telomeres in your DNA has become helpful for anti-aging medicine to assess your rate of aging compared to the average rate.
Spectracell also offers an advanced test to assess cardiovascular health, allowing for more in depth and accurate evaluation of blood cholesterol, risk for heart disease and stroke.
