General Health Panel

Only $32

 
DLS Regular Price: $49

Fasting Required: Yes 10-12 hours
Specimen: Blood
Lab: Quest Diagnostics
Results: 1-2 business days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Description:CMP: The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) is a frequently ordered group of 14 laboratory tests that gives important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.
Complete Blood Count (CBC's): It is a blood test that checks hemoglobin, hematocrit, red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), and platelets. Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases. Changing levels of red or white blood cells can indicate disease or infection and are very helpful in a health screening.

Celiac Disease Diagnostic Panel

Lab: Quest Diagnostics
Results: 5-7 business days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Description: Celiac disease is characterized by the presence of Transglutaminase, Gliadin, and Reticulin Antibodies. Such patients display a hypersensitivity to gluten (wheat) in their diet. The antibody is undetectable when patients with hypersensitivity are placed on gluten-free diets. Antibody IgA is more specific and IgG is more sensitive to Celiac disease.
Analytes Reported:
Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Antibodies (IgG, IgA)
Gliadin (Deamidated Peptide) Antibody (IgG, IgA)
IgA (Immunoglobulin A)

Arthritis Panel

Only $119

 
DLS Regular Price: $197

Fasting Required: Yes 10-12 hours
Specimen: Blood
Lab: Quest Diagnostics
Results: 3-5 business days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Tests Included:
C-Reactive Protein Quantitative: Used as a test for inflammatory diseases, infections, and neoplastic diseases. CRP is a more sensitive, rapidly responding indicator than ESR. CRP may be used to detect early postoperative wound infection and to follow therapeutic response to anti-inflammatory agents. Progressive increases correlate with increases of inflammation/injury.
Rheumatoid Factor: The test for rheumatoid factor (RA) is used to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. The test may also be used to help diagnose an arthritis-related condition called Sjögren’s syndrome. About 80% to 90% of patients with this syndrome have high amounts of RA in their blood.
ANA: Antinuclear Antibodies, is used to help diagnose systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and drug-induced lupus, but may also be positive in cases of scleroderma, Sjögren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s disease, juvenile chronic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, and many other autoimmune and non-autoimmune diseases. For this reason, SLE, which is commonly known as lupus, can be tricky to diagnose correctly. Because the ANA test result may be positive in a number of these other diseases, additional testing can help to establish a diagnosis of SLE. Your doctor may run other tests that are considered subsets of the general ANA test and that are used in conjunction with patient symptoms and clinical history to rule out a diagnosis of other autoimmune diseases.
Uric Acid: The uric acid test is used to learn whether the body might be breaking down cells too quickly or not getting rid of uric acid quickly enough. The test also is used to monitor levels of uric acid when a patient has had chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
Sedimentation Rate: A blood test which is used to screen for inflammation, cancer, and infection. A high sedimentation rate is found in a wide variety of infectious, inflammatory, and malignant diseases - the presence of an abnormality which needs further evaluation.
CMP-14:The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) is a frequently ordered group of 14 laboratory tests that gives important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.

• Oral Hormones (pills) Should be used as prescribed on the day of collection.
• Injections, Subcutaneous Pellets and Transdermal Patches it is recommended to collect mid cycle of the dosage interval.
CORTISOL/GLUCOCORTICOID SUPPLEMENTATION: CONSULT WITH YOUR PROVIDER for instruction if you are taking a cortisol supplement for adrenal support (or any other glucocorticoid for medical reasons). Note: certain medications, including hydrocortisone creams and asthma inhalers, contain cortisol. To evaluate your natural cortisol production, it is recommended to stop using cortisol-containing products 5 days prior to sample collection. Consult with your provider prior to stopping cortisol-containing medication(s).
WOMEN WITH MENSTRUAL CYCLES: Collect saliva during one day of the mid-luteal phase (day 19-23 of a 28-day cycle)* counting the first day of your period as day 1.

Description: A comprehensive preventative breast health program extends beyond imaging and lifestyle optimization, and includes accurate assessment and comprehensive treatment of demonstrated hormone imbalances. Labrix offers the Women’s Health and Breast Panel as an accurate, non-invasive tool to advance risk prevention and support you in providing exceptional care to your patients.
The Women’s Health and Breast Panel evaluates foundational hormone and adrenal status. This panel provides an in-depth look at estrogen levels, conversion patterns and offers two risk assessment ratios (Estrogen Quotient and PG/E2 Ratio) and also a customized women’s health and breast health specific interpretation. This additional clinical information is essential to further the conversation with your patients about targeted treatment options such as BHRT, nutraceutical and herbal supplementation, as well as potential lifestyle modifications.
Estrogens: There are three forms made by the body: estrone, estradiol and estriol. The form used in past hormone replacement therapies is estradiol, often in the form of concentrated pregnant mare’s urine (premarin). It is a proliferative (causes growth) hormone that grows the lining of the uterus. It is also a known cancer-causing hormone: breast and endometrial (uterine) in women and prostate gland in men. It will treat menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia and memory-loss. With the bio-identical formulas estriol is matched with estradiol (biest) to provide protective effects and additional estrogenic benefits. The other major protector in keeping estradiol from running amok is progesterone. Estrone and estriol are also useful hormones to test.
Progesterone: Called the anti-estrogen because it balances estradiol’s proliferative effects. It is considered preventive for breast and prostate cancers as well as osteoporosis. In addition, too little progesterone promotes depression, irritability, increased inflammation, irregular menses, breast tenderness, urinary frequency and prostate gland enlargement (BPH).
Testosterone: An anabolic hormone (builds tissue) that is essential for men and women. The proper level of testosterone is necessary for bone health, muscle strength, stamina, sex drive and performance, heart function and mental focus.
DHEA: An important adrenal gland hormone, which is essential for energy production and blood sugar balance. DHEA is a precursor to other hormones, mainly testosterone.
Cortisol: Your waking day hormone (highest in the morning and lowest at night). It is necessary for energy production, blood sugar metabolism, anti-inflammatory effects and stress response.

Anemia Panel

Only $119

 
DLS Regular Price: $169

Fasting Required:
 No

Fasting Required: Yes 10-12 hours
Specimen: Blood
Lab: Quest Diagnostics
Results: 3-5 business days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Tests Included:
Complete Blood Count (CBC): Used as a broad screening test to check for such disorders as anemia, infection, and many other diseases. It is actually a panel of tests that examines different parts of the blood.
Ferritin: Composed of iron and protein, Ferritin is a storehouse for iron in the body. Measurement provides an accurate picture of how much iron you have available in reserve. It is used to evaluate anemia and for diagnosing iron deficiency. Low Ferritin is a sign of iron deficiency. Ferritin is high with inflammation, infection, liver disease, iron overload, certain amends and certain cancers (leukemia and lymphoma).
Transferrin: Blood levels are used to evaluate anemia and deficiency. High transferrin levels are found in iron deficiency, pregnancy, and in those taking birth control pills. It is low in liver disease, kidney disease, cancer, chronic inflammation, hereditary transferrin deficiency, or when there are excessive amounts of iron in the body.
CMP-14: The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) is a frequently ordered group of 14 laboratory tests that gives important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.
Iron w/TIBC: Serum iron level - measures the level of iron in the liquid part of your blood.
Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) - measures the amount of transferrin, a blood protein that transports iron from the gut to the cells that use it. Your body makes transferrin in relationship to your need for iron; when iron stores are low, transferrin levels increase, while transferrin is low when there is too much iron. Usually about one third of the transferrin is being used to transport iron. Because of this, your blood serum has considerable extra iron-binding capacity, which is the Unsaturated Iron Biding Capacity (UIBC). The TIBC equals UIBC plus the serum iron measurement. Some laboratories measure UIBC, some measure TIBC, and some measure transferrin.
Vitamin B12: To help diagnose the cause of anemia or neuropathy (nerve damage), to evaluate nutritional status in some patients, to monitor effectiveness of treatment for B12 or folate deficiency. B12 and folate are primarily ordered to help diagnose the cause of macrocytic anemia.
Folic Acid: Detect folate deficiency, monitor therapy. Usually measured with red cell folates and vitamin B12 levels. Measurement of both serum and red cell folate levels constitutes a reliable means of determining the existence of folate deficiency. These tests are recommended for those with anemia. B12 and folate are primarily ordered to help diagnose the cause of macrocytic anemia.

144 Food Panel IgG (Blood Spot) – US BioTek Kit

Only $229

 
DLS Regular Price: $279

Lab: US BioTek
Specimen: Blood Spot
Results: 7-10 business days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Special Instructions: It is suggested that you maintain your usual dietary habits and consume a variety of foods when possible within a couple weeks prior to blood collection, unless advised otherwise by your healthcare practitioner. Avoid eating foods that may have potentially resulted in a previous adverse reaction and/or anaphylaxis, as secondary exposure may prove fatal. Do not perform this test if you are taking blood thinning medications or if you have a blood clotting disorder unless authorized by your healthcare practitioner.
Immunosuppressive drugs such as oral and intranasal corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone, beclomethasone, fluticasone, triamcinolone) and topical cortisone suspensions and creams, in addition to immune-modulating drugs, may affect test results for antibody assessment.
Description: Food allergies and sensitivities are recognized to be correlated with many plaguing health conditions, but with proper identification and elimination of offending foods, many experience relief from their symptoms.
