Laboratory Tests

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test

Test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the cellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites, while conveying the body’s need for these micronutrients that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health. This test provides the basis of a personalized, functional approach in addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolic disorders and micronutrient deficiencies. Nutritional Status & Health.


DISEASE THERAPY AND MANAGEMENT:

Diagnose and treat nutritional risk factors that contribute to the therapy/management of many degenerative disease conditions.  

FAMILY HISTORY:  Provide prevention measures for patients with family history of common chronic disease conditions.  

HIGH RISK GROUPS:  Certain high risk groups are more susceptible to vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies that can affect treatment outcomes and overall health.

PROACTIVE RISK ASSESSMENT:  Provide customized prevention by early detection of nutritional deficiencies for proactive patients.  

CHALLENGING CASES:  Gain insight into generalized complaints with no apparent specific disease source and to provide treatment options based on biochemical individuality.

IMMUNIDEX™

Immune Response Score - A unique Clinical Tool

A patient’s IMMUNIDEX™ score is one measurement to evaluate a person’s cell-mediated immune system performance. Specifically, it measures T-cell lymphocyte proliferation. Since immune function is a systemic measure of general health, a higher IMMUNIDEX™ score is generally desired since it means a person can respond efficiently not only to exogenous threats such as pathogens or allergens, but also to endogenous threats like tumors. The immune system, comprised of both cell-mediated (Th1) and humoral (Th2) components, when balanced and performing optimally, affords us critical protection and promotes health and wellness.

Micronutrient deficiencies will undermine a person’s immune function, and thus lower the IMMUNIDEX™. Since the highly complex immune system is dependent on the intracellular availability of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, correcting specific micronutrient deficiencies typically raises the IMMUNIDEX™ and contributes to tangible clinical benefits, such as reduced infections and may assist in achieving balance.
