Here are a few of the lab tests that Dr. Altneu most frequently orders and finds they provide valuable insight for clients:
- Comprehensive Wellness Panel - $149 - This is a custom, comprehensive blood panel that includes $600-worth of tests in one place for a discounted price: CBC with differential, CMP, CRP (a marker of inflammation), Ferritin, Hemoglobin A1c, Homocysteine (a marker for your folate status and how well you're methylating), Iron + TIBC, Lipid Panel, Comprehensive Thyroid Profile with Free T3 + T4, and Vitamin D.
- DUTCH hormone test - $300 - this is the most advanced hormone test, offering an extensive 24-hour profile of hormones along with their metabolites (how well you're detoxifying and metabolizing the hormones) as well as markers of B vitamins and gut inflammation, to identify causes of hormonal symptoms.
- HTMA - Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis - $112 - this measures the levels of essential nutrients and toxic minerals stored in your body.
Together, we can decide if any of these would be helpful for you. Tests are not required, but they are available.
