Hemoglobin A1C Test

Monitor blood sugar with HbA1C

The hemoglobin A1C test (also known as HbA1C) is used to show the long-term changes in blood sugar. When blood sugar is elevated over a long period of time, a sugary coating called glycosylated hemoglobin develops over the surface of the red blood cell. As more of the oxygen carrying hemoglobin is coated, it can decrease the cell's ability to transport oxygen.

Hemoglobin A1C can be used to monitor blood sugar therapy. As daily blood sugar improves and stabilizes, Hemoglobin A1C levels should improve also.

How Often Should My Hemoglogin A1C Levels Be Tested?

The lifespan of a red blood cells is approximately 120 days, therefore, it has been recommended to retest Hemoglobin A1C every 2-3 months.

Thyroid Antibodies

Test for Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TGA)

Hashimoto's hypothyroidism is affecting people from all age groups at an alarming rate. As antibodies attack the thyroid gland over time, you may develop low thyroid symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, constipation, slow metabolism, swelling, increased sensitivity to cold, and depression.

Symptom fluctuation, a medicine cabinet full of medication and supplements, and doctors not being able to correctly diagnose you are signs that you may have an autoimmune condition. Even though Hashimoto's disease constitutes over 80% of all hypothyroid cases, it is often missed. Many times traditional laboratory tests such as Thyroid Simulating Hormone (TSH), T4, and T3 will be normal in cases of Hashimoto's.

Have this test run if you suspect Hashimoto's or you have been previously diagnosed with hypothyroidism and theses tests were not run.
These two sets of antibodies (Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) and Thyroglobulin (TGB) antibodies) are used to diagnose Hashimoto's. Since these antibodies fluctuate over time, one should consider TH1/TH2 and CD4/CD8 ratio tests to monitor their treatment plan. These tests gives detailed information about the health of your immune system.


What's Being Tested:

  • Anti-thyroglobulin antibodies (TGA)
  • Anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO)


Notes:

  • Since auto-antibodies tend to fluctuate, it is important to retest once (1) per week for three (3) weeks if results are initially negative.


Fasting: No

Specimen: Blood (Draw Location | How It Works | FAQs)

Turnaround Time: 6 Business Days


ANA Test

The Antinuclear antibodies, or ANA test, is used to determine the presence of autoimmunity. Elevated ANA levels are typically seen in Systemic lupus erythematosus (also known as Lupus or SLE). However, since a large percentage of those with autoimmune attack to one tissue have attacks to others, ANA should be run in all suspected autoimmune conditions.

We have created a test panel to screen for all of the most common autoimmun conditions including Lupus. Learn more

Genova DNA Stool Test | GI-Effects

Gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) function is important for general health. This includes balancing beneficial bacteria in the gut to enhance health benefits. GI tract health is key in digestion, nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens.

Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, and various disease states. Poor GI tract function can also lead to food allergies and other toxicities. The GI-Effects Metamextrix stool test uses advanced DNA technology analyze GI tract health.

Your intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, some beneficial, some neutral, and some that can be harmful. It is essential to know the bacterial balance of your GI tract, especially if you have long-standing health problems. Health enhancing intestinal bacteria serve to prevent the overgrowth of potentially harmful bacteria in the gut.

Symptoms of an unhealthy GI tract may not always be present. This specific Metametrix stool test gives a detailed analysis of GI tract health. You and your healthcare practitioner can use the information to develop a plan to restore optimal function of the GI tract. Read more

Why should you use the Genova GI-Effects Stool Test?

  • Requires only one, single sample collection.
  • Greater accuracy due to advanced technology DNA analysis.
  • Evaluates balance of GI tract bacteria shown to contribute to weight gain.
  • If autoimmunity is a concern, the DNA stool test may point out areas of the gut that could negatively impact the immune system.
  • Identifies drug resistance genes to help determine ideal drug agents.
  • To maintain good health
  • See a Sample Report or read the Technical Information for the GI Effects DNA stool test.

Reverse T3 Test

In times of stress, the body may need to conserve energy. Since thyroid hormone acts like our internal thermostat, thyroid hormones may be suppressed in times of stress. One way this is done is by converting the thyroid hormone T4 into an inactive form of the active T3 hormone called reverse T3. This lowers the amount of available active T3 which can lead to hypothyroid type symptoms.

Since it is not standard to check for reverse T3 levels, your lab results may look normal but are still having low thyroid type symptoms. Instead of identifying the underlying stressor, most are prescribed the standard thyroid replacement hormone.

What's Being Tested:

  • Reverse T3
