The complete blood count (CBC) test is one of the most common tests ordered. A CBC test can help indicate infections, anemia, and vitamin B12 deficiency.

Many people use this CBC test panel to monitor abnormal results.

What's Being Tested:

  • number of white blood cells (WBC)
  • number of red blood cells (RBC)
  • hemoglobin content (Hgb)
  • hematocrit (Hct)
  • mean corpuscular volume (MCV)
  • mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH)
  • mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC)
  • platelet count and volume
  • White Blood Cell Differential
  • Neutrophils
  • Lymphocytes
  • Monocytes
  • Eosinophils
  • Basophils

Fasting Requirements: No

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

Turnaround Time: 3 Business Days


C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Blood Test


C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is used to detect inflammation. Chronic inflammation can leave to heart disease and many other health issues. If CRP is elevated, one should investigate the reasons for the inflammation. Once it is found, you can use this marker to monitor the effectiveness of treatment.

What's Being Tested:

  • C-Reactive Protein (CRP High Sensitivity)


Fasting: No

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

Turnaround Time: 3 Business Days



Mineral and Heavy Metal Blood Test


This heavy metal blood test is used to if you suspect recent toxic exposure to dietary minerals, toxic minerals, and toxic heavy metals such as mercury.

If you are monitoring chelation therapy (removal of metals from your body), the urine heavy metal test is the most appropriate.

What's Being Tested:

    • Nutritional Elements
      • Chromium
      • Copper
      • Magnesium
      • Manganese
      • Potassium
      • Selenium
      • Vanadium
      • Zinc
    • Toxic Elements
      • Cadmium
      • Lead
      • Thallium
      • Tin
    • Toxic Heavy Metals
      • Antimony
      • Arsenic
      • Mercury

Fasting: No

Specimen: Packed Red Blood Cells, Genova Test Kit® (Draw Location | How It Works | FAQs)

Turnaround Time: 7 Business Days

Note:
  • This kit cannot be mailed or collected in New York State only.



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.



What's being tested:

  • Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C)

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

What's Being Tested:

  • Antinuclear Antibodies (ANA) Screen with Reflex to Titer and Pattern

Fasting: No

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

Turnaround Time: 4 Business Days


Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine), Plasma

What's Being Tested:

  • Vitamin B1

Fasting: No

Specimen Type: Plasma (Draw Location | How It Works | FAQs)


Vitamin B-6, Plasma

What's Being Tested:

  • Vitamin B-6

Fasting: No

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




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

Fasting: No

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

Turnaround Time: 4 Business Days


Important Note: If you are ordering from one of our reverse T3 restricted states (NY, NJ, MA, or RI), click here for other options.
