Functional Testing

Functional tests can give us more detailed information about where imbalances lie in the body, which systems in the body are perhaps not functioning optimally or if there are nutritional deficiencies.  

Many of these tests are carried out either using urine, saliva, blood spot or stool samples. Tests are sent directly to you to carry out at home and return by post. On receipt of the results, we can use this knowledge to make a more detailed and targeted nutritional plan. 

Types of tests include:

Metabolic health (blood lipids, glucose, insulin)

Thyroid and adrenal health

Digestion and the gut microbiome

Nutritional deficiencies (vitamins, minerals, fatty acids)

Hormones (menopause, PCOS)

Liver and detoxification
