Specialty Lab Testing

H2MD offers dozens of unique and comprehensive specialty lab panels in addition to standard labs. These comprehensive lab panels can provide valuable information that may shed light on the causes of your health issues, as well as help determine your risks for future health problems. These labs can provide a foundation on which to build a health plan and strategy for your unique health needs.

Examples of some of our Specialty Lab Testing

This extensive lab panel is used to identify deficiencies of several key nutrients, such as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and amino acids; abnormalities in energy production; gut bacteria dysbiosis, yeast overgrowth and leaky gut markers; neurotransmitter status; and heavy metal toxicities. Everyone could benefit from this lab panel! This test is used by many patients to determine if changes in their diets and supplement therapies are beneficially impacting their nutritional status.
Boston Heart Diagnostic Lab Panel
This comprehensive cardiovascular lab panel evaluates multiple markers to get a very detailed look at your current cardiovascular status as well as your future cardiovascular risks. It also tests for key genetic markers crucial to heart health. This lab panel tests for much more than the standard and inadequate “cholesterol test”. If you have been diagnosed with elevated cholesterol levels, have a history of heart disease, and/or have a family history of heart disease you may want to strongly consider taking advantage of this test.
Hormone Testing
This can be done utilizing blood, saliva and/or urine samples to get an excellent look at your hormone status. This testing is often done by women experiencing menopausal symptoms, or by men experiencing “manopause”. However, any patient with symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, depression, weight gain, low sex drive, and/or irritability could likely benefit from hormone testing. The testing is simple, and hormone imbalances are easily treatable with excellent outcomes.
Comprehensive Stool Analysis
This valuable test can often shed light on chronic and/or acute digestive problems that do not respond to standard therapies. This test analyzes a person’s stool for deficiencies of several key digestive enzymes, overgrowth of yeast, gut bacteria dysbiosis, presence of parasites and malabsorption. Many patients with a diagnosis of IBS or who are experiencing chronic constipation, diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, anemia and abdominal pain should consider this test.
Food Allergy Testing
This test can help guide you and your physician in addressing food intolerances that you may or may not know you had. Food intolerances can often cause unexplained fatigue, joint pain, sleep issues, rashes, congestion, IBS—symptoms often associated with “autoimmune disorders”.
Genetic Testing
There are several genetic tests that can be obtained, either as a profile or individually. Single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs, can be identified using a buccal swab (which collects cells from the inside of your mouth) or a blood sample. Certain SNPs are associated with increased risks of certain diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, peripheral vascular disease, and overactive inflammatory responses, to name a few. We use SNPs to also guide certain nutrient and drug therapies. Many patients are taking advantage of using genetic markers and SNPs to identify potential adverse and deadly drug reactions.   SNPs can be used to evaluate how a person metabolizes certain nutrients, handles environmental toxins, metabolizes hormones, and responds to inflammation. Genetic testing is rapidly changing the way medicine is being practiced.
