Nutritional deficiencies can occur for various reasons and are often caused by stress, inadequate sleep, illness, or another health condition. You may also have certain nutrient deficiencies if you do not eat the right foods for your body’s requirements. Nutritional deficiencies are so prevalent that tests are designed to analyze your body’s nutrient status. There are many medical nutrition tests available today, but we would like to discuss the more popular ones below.
6 Popular Medical Nutrition Tests Available at Cambiati Wellness Center
We offer over a dozen different types of basic medical nutrition tests, including:
1. Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT)
This is a test to determine what kind of diet would be best for you. The information provided by the GTT is only general and does not indicate if you have diabetes or not. To get a better picture of your health, we recommend that you take part in our blood glucose screening.
2. Vitamin D Test
We recommend that all our patients get tested for vitamin D levels twice a year. Vitamin D is needed for the parathyroid glands to produce hormones that regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in our blood. It also helps the body absorb calcium from our food and contributes to bone growth and maintenance. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to rickets, osteomalacia, and osteoporosis, which are conditions that cause bones to become weak, brittle, soft, and eventually break.
3. Glutamine Test
This test measures glutamine levels in a person’s blood and will show if there is an issue with an under-utilization of glutamine in one’s system. Glutamine is one of the building blocks of protein and plays an important role in immune function and recovery from illness.
4. Probiotics Test
This test will determine how effectively you use your probiotics to promote good health. It also shows whether you have been taking too many or too few probiotics, which can cause unwanted side effects such as diarrhea or gas.
5. Heavy Metal Testing
Heavy metal toxicity has become a widespread problem in our culture because of the increased use of chemicals in our food and water supply and the general increase in pollution all around us. This test can help you identify how much heavy metal you have in your system and clue you in on how much detoxing you need to do. This test will also show you what supplements will most effectively remove heavy metals from your body.
6. Saliva Test
Saliva testing offers a quick and easy way to determine the sugar and fat content in your blood and urine. This test will help you identify any nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing to your poor health.
