What this test measures?

Nutrient Health Panel

Nutrition testing allows you to evaluate the levels of macronutrients and micronutrients in the blood, giving you better insight into what your body has in excess or if you are experiencing any deficiencies.

Nutritional testing has many uses, such as assessing blood chemistry, hormone function, gut health, metabolic function, blood sugar regulation, food sensitivities and allergies, organ function, and much more.

Magnesium is a mineral stored in your bones, tissues and cells that is important in producing energy, muscle and nerve function, heart health and bone strength.  You absorb magnesium into your system through your small intestines when you eat foods such as spinach, whole grains, nuts, beans, bananas, milk, and salmon.  

High Magnesium Levels - While not as common as low levels, high magnesium levels are typical in those with kidney damage or those who take certain drugs.  Excessive levels of magnesium can cause serious complications, including cardiac arrest

 Low Magnesium Levels - Low magnesium levels can indicate inefficient mineral absorption often caused by excessive alcohol consumption, underlying kidney problems, certain medications, celiac disease or chronic digestive issues.  Over time, magnesium deficiency can lead to decreased calcium and potassium levels, weak bones and negative effects on your heart. 

Symptoms of long-term magnesium deficiency can include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sleepiness
  • Headaches
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Muscle spasms

Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) is an essential vitamin and plays an important role in blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function and the production of DNA.  It is found in foods such as meat, fish, dairy, and fortified foods such as breakfast cereal and is widely available as an oral supplement.

High Vitamin B12 Levels - Abnormally high B12 levels may suggest liver or kidney problems, diabetes, or certain forms of leukemia. Megadoses of the vitamin can lead to acne and rosacea.

Low Vitamin B12 Levels - While vitamin B-12 deficiency is not common in the US, people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet might be prone to this deficiency because plant foods don’t contain vitamin B-12.  Older adults and people with digestive tract conditions that affect absorption of nutrients may also be susceptible to vitamin B-12 deficiency.

Symptoms of low vitamin B12 levels:

  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Intestinal problems
  • Nerve damage
  • Mood disturbances

Folate (vitamin B-9) is important in red blood cell formation for healthy cell growth and function. This nutrient is crucial during early pregnancy to reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and spine.  There is evidence folate can reduce the risk of various cancers and is helpful in treating depression.

High Folate Levels - While excess folate levels aren’t usually dangerous, they are linked to some conditions, including certain types of cancers.

Low Folate Levels - could be caused by the following: high alcohol consumption, diet low in folate, genetic factors and certain medications.

Symptoms of low folate:

  • Fatigue
  • Gray hair
  • Mouth sores
  • Tongue swelling
  • Growth problems

For most, a balanced diet usually provides all the folate you need. Folate is found in dark green leafy vegetables, beans, peas, nuts, oranges, lemons, bananas, melons, and strawberries. The synthetic form of folate is folic acid and is in many fortified foods, such as cereals and pastas.

Vitamin D plays a major role in regulating your immune system to help you fight off infection. Vitamin D also regulates many other cellular functions in your body.  Its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and neuroprotective properties support immune health, muscle function and brain cell activity. Knowing our Vitamin D levels will help you to understand your susceptibility to illnesses.

Low Vitamin D (25-OH D) levels- Deficiencies in Vitamin D can lead to low calcium absorption which in turn causes weakened bones that become soft and brittle and prone to fractures.  Perhaps the most commonly known condition attributed to low Vitamin D levels is osteoporosis - a loss of total bone mass.  Deficiency in Vitamin D may lead to rickets in children and adverse outcomes in pregnant women and may also contribute to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.

Symptoms of low Vitamin D:

  • Fatigue
  • Bone pain 
  • Muscle weakness, muscle aches or muscle cramps
  • Mood changes like depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Hair loss

What are the signs and symptoms of iron deficiency?

Iron deficiency occurs when your body does not have an adequate supply of iron. This can be troublesome as iron is used to make hemoglobin, a substance needed to enable red blood cells to carry oxygen. This deficiency is often referred to as anemia and is characterized by the following symptoms:  

  • Extreme fatigue 
  • Weakness 
  • Pale skin 
  • Fast heartbeat or shortness of breath 
  • Cold hands and feet 
  • Inflammation or soreness of your tongue 
  • Brittle nails 
  • Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances such as ice, dirt, or starch 

To reduce your risk of iron deficiency, you should consume iron rich foods including red meat, pork, seafood, beans, dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruit, peas. In addition to, or in place of iron rich foods, you can also take iron supplements.

What are the signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency?

When your body is deficient in vitamin D, your bones and muscles take a toll as this vitamin is essential for bone development and maintenance.  Vitamin D is needed in order for your body to use calcium and phosphorus to build bones and support healthy tissues. It also plays a role in your nervous system, your musculoskeletal system, and your immune system. Symptoms of vitamin D can look different in children compared to adults: 

Symptoms in Children:

  • Incorrect growth patterns due to bowed or bent bones 

  • Muscle weakness 

  • Bone pain 

  • Deformities in joints 

Symptoms in Adults:

  • Fatigue 

  • Bone pain 

  • Muscle weakness, muscle aches or muscle cramps 

  • Depression or mood changes 

There are several ways to curb vitamin D deficiency – most agree the best course of treatment include: sun exposure, taking supplements, and adding foods rich in vitamin D, such as: salmon, tuna, trout, beef liver, mushrooms, egg yolks, and cod liver oil into your diet. 

What are the signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency?

Magnesium deficiencies aren’t commonly discussed, but that may be attributed to the fact that it’s often underdiagnosed. The obvious signs and symptoms don’t appear until your levels are severely low so it’s important that the following are not overlooked: 

  • Loss of appetite 
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Fatigue and weakness 
  • Shaking 
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Hyperexcitability 
  • Abnormal heart rhythms 

This deficiency can be remedied by eating a balanced diet. A magnesium-rich diet consists of leafy green vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.

What are the signs and symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency?

Vitamin B12 deficiency is often overlooked as its symptoms are similar to other nutrient insufficiencies but it’s essential for energy production and central nervous system function. The ability to absorb vitamin B12 worsens with age, but children and young adults can also experience vitamin B12 deficiencies. Be on the lookout for the following B12 deficiency symptoms: 

  • Weakness, tiredness, lightheadedness 
  • Heart palpitations and shortness of breath 
  • Pale skin 
  • Smooth tongue 
  • Constipation, diarrhea, loss of appetite 
  • Numbness or tingling, muscle weakness 
  • Vision loss 
  • Depression, memory loss, or behavioral changes 

Similar to most deficiencies, it can be corrected by eating foods that are rich with that particular vitamin. For vitamin B12, you should add more meat, poultry, seafood, dairy products, and eggs to your diet. You can also add a supplement to your daily routine. 

What are the signs and symptoms of folate deficiency?

Folate is especially important for women who are pregnant as it aids in the growth and development of unborn babies. Your body needs folate to make new red blood cells and the genetic material in your cells (DNA), hence why it can be troublesome if expectant mothers are experiencing an insufficiency. Regardless of if you are pregnant or not, you should look out for the following symptoms of folate deficiency: 

  • Extreme fatigue 
  • Paleness 
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Irritability 
  • Mouth sores or mouth ulcers 
  • Reduced sense of taste 
  • Memory loss 
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Weakness 

Eating a well-balanced diet full of leafy greens, citrus fruits, nuts, beans, peas, seafood, eggs, dairy, meat, poultry, and grains can help you prevent folate deficiency. If these foods aren’t a part of your everyday meals, there are also supplements available. 

What is the difference between vitamin B12 and folate deficiency?

Due to the dietary sources of B12, vegetarians and vegans are at a higher risk of developing vitamin B12 and/or folate deficiencies. You can find folate in peas, beans, citrus fruits, and dark green leafy vegetables whereas vitamin B12 comes from meat, poultry, seafood, and dairy products. Both deficiencies can cause fatigue, weakness, and anemia, however, severe vitamin B12 deficiency can cause complications like depression, paranoia, delusions, memory loss, incontinence and loss of taste and smell.
