Naturopathic Doctors have full access to laboratory testing through Life Labs. At Arc Integrated Medicine, we use this privilege frequently to help evaluate and diagnose our patients. Not only do we use these labs in a way that is similar to your medical doctor, but we also take advantage of all the tests that Life Labs has to offer, in an effort to not only treat disease but optimize your health.
Life Labs offers significantly more testing than you typically see done by a GP, and some of these labs can help us get a much clearer picture of how healthy you are.
We offer various panels through the lab that can screen for:
Nutritional deficiencies – Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Iron Panel, Folic acid, Magnesium, Zinc and Copper can all be tested
Cardiovascular risk – Lipid panels, Apo-lipoprotein B, CRP-hs, HbA1c, homocysteine
Blood sugar metabolism – Blood glucose, HbA1c, Glucose tolerance, insulin
Thyroid & hormone deficiencies – TSH, free T4/T3, thyroid antibodies, estrogen and progesterone levels, DHEA-s, Bio-available testosterone, and more!
