Nutritional Deficiency Comprehensive Blood Test
Nutritional Deficiency Comprehensive Blood Test (Labcorp)
This package includes a comprehensive selection of tests to help evaluate a person's nutrition. These types of tests can be especially helpful for a person who is observing a vegan or vegetarian diet. Vegetarians focus on omitting meat from their diet while vegans typically avoid any animal-based products including eggs and dairy. While there are health benefits to these types of nutritional choices, it is also important to ensure that you are getting the important vitamins and nutrients your body needs to function properly. Deficiencies in these nutrients can affect your health in ways you may not anticipate and may even counteract the intended benefits of your dietary choices. Periodic bloodwork can assess your general health and identify if there are deficiencies in your diet that need to be addressed. Bloodwork can also show the positive impacts that dietary choices are making on your health.
People who are not observing special diets can also benefit from general health and nutritional testing. These tests can identify health issues you may not be aware of and help you to work with your doctor in determining the steps you can take to protect and improve your overall wellness.
This package includes:
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Iodine (Urine)
- Iron and Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC)
- Lipid Panel (Cholesterol)
- Methylmalonic Acid (MMA)
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
- Vitamin B12 and Folate
- Vitamin D
A Basic Nutritional testing package is also available. In addition to the tests in these packages, there are other blood tests that can be helpful in evaluating your health. A Hemoglobin A1C test is useful for checking your average blood sugar level over the past couple of months. This test is one of the primary tools for evaluating a person's risk of developing diabetes. An Omega 3 blood test measures healthy fatty acids that play an important role in heart health. Since one of the primary dietary sources of omega-3 is fish, people observing a meat-free diet may need to monitor their levels and find alternative sources.
The Comprehensive Nutritional Bloodwork package can be ordered by anyone who wants to assess their nutrition and overall health. These tests can be particularly helpful for people who are observing special dietary plans including vegan or vegetarian.
Turnaround for these tests is typically 5-8 business days.
