Functional Medicine Labs

What Are

Functional Medicine TESTS?

Sure, any doctor can order labs. The typical approach is to offer prescriptions as a solution for markers that fall in the abnormal column. The goal, chemically modify the markers back into the “normal” range. That approach isn’t working. That’s NOT what we do.

Another option, is to do a little research on your own, and then order your own lab tests in the mail. There are also local box stores where you can “order any lab test now,” and you can do the same with those results.

Perhaps your solution approach is to stop into a nutrition store, and stock up on supplements you think might help with the markers that show up in the “abnormal” column of the results.

That’s NOT what we do. We aren’t a glorified version of the “do it yourself” approach because that isn’t really working, either.

What’s missing? Functional interpretation. Having a team of professionals scour your lab values including all of those that fall within the huge range of “normal” to see how we can help you get your lab values in the narrow range of “optimal.”

Every lab marker effects every other. Cortisol high? It could be related to blood sugar instability. Thyroid out of balance? It could be related to your birth control. Homocysteine levels high? Maybe you aren’t properly absorbing B vitamins due to a digestive issue.

At Well Infused, we run a full 70-biomarker lab panel for every one of our clients interested in our holistic, functional medicine approach.

Our team does a thorough review of your health history, medicine use, current supplement program, and assess effectiveness of current approach, and make recommendations for improvement.

The goal, optimal function. Biomarkers balanced and positively impacting every aspect of your physiology.

We’ll make lifestyle modification changes, offer recommendations on the type of eating style will best improve your health status, and supplements or IV nutrition that will address deficiencies.

Your plan won’t be like anyone else’s, because your lab results won’t be the same as any other client we serve.

That’s what makes labs at Well Infused drastically different, and more valuable than labs you’ll get absolutely anywhere else.

How are Functional Medicine tests performed?

Simplicity is important when embarking on any health journey. That’s why not only do we order a comprehensive blood chemistry panel including hormones, we also do your blood draw on-site.

Unless we’re only doing a hormone follow-up, you will need to be 12-hours fasting for these draws.

Once the results are back, our functional team will read and interpret those results, come up with customized recommendations to optimize blood chemistry, and address any lab values that are out of optimal range - NOT just the labs that happen to fall in the "abnormal" column.

With your results in hand, you'll also be able to watch an informative webinar at home, to fully understand the labs and what they mean for your health.

You will follow up with a member of our team to review those recommendations, and get set up with the appropriate supplements and dietary recommendations or services to reach your goals.

We Measure 70+ Essential Biomarkers

Energy and Fuel

Understanding Oxygen and Nutrition Fueling our bodies efficiently starts with understanding the vital roles of oxygen and nutrition.


Red Blood Cell Health: Your red blood cells ensure oxygen is transported efficiently to every part of your body. Key indicators to watch:

◆ RBC Count: How many oxygen-delivering cells you have.
◆ Hemoglobin: Amount of oxygen-carrying protein present.
◆ Hematocrit: Percentage of red blood cells in your total blood.
◆ MCV: Average size of your red blood cells, affecting oxygen delivery.
◆ Vital Nutrients: Ferritin, Iron, Vitamin B12, B9, and % Saturation.

Blood Sugar Dynamics: Your blood sugar, or glucose, is essential for energy. Keeping it balanced is vital:

◆ Fasting Glucose: Snapshot of sugar level after not eating.
◆ Hemoglobin A1C: Three-month average of blood sugar.
◆ Estimated Average Glucose: Broader picture of daily glucose levels.

Heart and Lipid Health

Keeping the Balance Our bodies, apart from water, consist mainly of fats (lipids) and proteins, with lipids playing several vital roles.


Blood Lipids: These fats should move freely in our vessels, available for energy or cellular construction.

◆ Triglycerides: Reflects metabolic health, not just dietary fats.
◆ LDL Cholesterol: A crucial factor, but not the sole agent in heart disease.
◆ HDL Cholesterol: The beneficial cholesterol offering insights when considered alongside other markers.
◆ Total Cholesterol: Alone, doesn't reveal much about heart disease risk.
◆ Lipid Ratios: Comparisons of various lipid levels crucial for understanding heart disease risk.
◆ Apolipoprotein B: A new approach to understanding LDL cholesterol's nuances.

Detoxification

Cleanse, Refresh, and Restore In today's environment, our bodies confront numerous toxins. Coupled with the waste from our metabolism, detoxification is more vital than ever.


Liver & Kidney: Body's Natural Filters: Central to removing toxins and waste.

◆ AST/ALT/GGT: Indicators of liver health and potential challenges.
◆ Bilirubin & Alkaline Phosphatase: Clues about blood cell recycling and nutrient status.
◆ Creatinine, eGFR, and Blood Nitrogen: Insights into kidney health.
◆ Protein Markers: Albumin and Globulin. Reflecting how well we digest and utilize protein.

Cellular Communication

for Peak Health Optimal health requires coordinated cellular communication, driven by micronutrients, electrolytes, and hormones.


Electrolyte Balance: Minerals that power everything from our heart & muscles to our mind. The ‘electric currents’ required to operate your body must be in a tight balance determined by lifestyle, nutrition and diet

◆ Key indicators include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chloride, and Co2.

Hormonal Symphony: Over 600 hormones ensure harmony within our body's systems.

◆ Thyroid Health: Governs our energy use. Key indicators include TSH, T3, T4, and antibody levels.
◆ Sex Hormones: Impact a spectrum of health aspects, including metabolic health and stress response. Key indicators include Estradiol, total and free Testosterone, DHEA-S, LH & FSH

Heart and Lipid Health

Keeping the Balance Our bodies, apart from water, consist mainly of fats (lipids) and proteins, with lipids playing several vital roles.


Blood Lipids: These fats should move freely in our vessels, available for energy or cellular construction.

◆ Triglycerides: Reflects metabolic health, not just dietary fats.
◆ LDL Cholesterol: A crucial factor, but not the sole agent in heart disease.
◆ HDL Cholesterol: The beneficial cholesterol offering insights when considered alongside other markers.
◆ Total Cholesterol: Alone, doesn't reveal much about heart disease risk.
◆ Lipid Ratios: Comparisons of various lipid levels crucial for understanding heart disease risk.
◆ Apolipoprotein B: A new approach to understanding LDL cholesterol's nuances.

Immune System and Inflammatory Markers:

Strengthening Immunity and Reducing Inflammation In a world full of health challenges, our body's internal defense needs to be resilient.


Immune Health: A fortified immune system defends against numerous threats.

◆ Vitamin D: A key regulator of immune response.
◆ White Blood Cells: Indicators of the body's immune reactions.

Inflammation's Double-Edged Sword: Both a protector and a potential problem.

◆ High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein: A top inflammation marker.
◆ Homocysteine: Can impact blood vessels and brain cells.
◆ Uric Acid: Elevated levels can indicate dietary and metabolic issues.
◆ GGT & Alkaline Phosphatase: Early indicators of inflammatory diseases.
◆ Clotting Factors: Elements like platelets and fibrinogen rise when there's an immediate threat from inflammation.
