Diagnostic Testing

Functional diagnostic testing, interpreted by specially trained medical doctors, can identify risk factors for a wide variety of health conditions before they become symptomatic, and yield information on existing conditions that may have gone previously undiagnosed with seemingly unrelated symptoms. Baseline functional assessments and lab work, utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques, are essential for an initial comprehensive evaluation and risk factor assessment.  Some of the tests are repeated periodically and additional testing may be required, to enable the physician to monitor and adjust an individual’s treatment plan.  Initial testing usually includes blood tests and selected imaging studies and subsequent testing varies as appropriate.


Testing Procedure Measures/Evaluates
Blood Tests  
biochemical profile electrolyte levels, kidney function, liver function
hematologic profile red blood cells (oxygen carrying) white blood cells (infection fighting) platelets (blood clotting)
serum inflammatory mediators biochemicals that regulate inflammation
PSA levels risk for prostate cancer
CA 125 risk for ovarian cancer

cardiovascular profile:

homocysteine, lipoprotein (a), triglycerides, C - reactive protein, HDL and LDL cholesterol, Apo-lipoprotein A-1 and B

risk factors for stroke, heart attack and sudden cardiac death

hormone profile:

insulin, thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, growth hormone                              

biochemical messengers that regulate mood, energy, appetite, sex drive, tissue repair and inflammatory response
micronutrient panel vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant levels
Salivary Testing  
cortisol, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone

tissue levels of hormones that regulate

Imaging Studies  
CT angiography       

anatomy of the coronary arteries, reversible  soft plaque, risk of heart attack and sudden cardiac death

coronary calcium score amount of calcium in the coronary arteries- correlates with amount of hard plaque in arterial walls, risk of heart attack and sudden cardiac death
bone mineral density scan

amount of calcium in bone, osteoporosis, fracture risk

virtual colonoscopy

anatomy of the large intestine, early tumor detection

chest CT Scanning anatomy of lungs, early tumor detection
