Vitamin and Genetic Testing
An innovative assessment of a patient’s intracellular nutritional status. 34 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants are evaluated.
Are You in Control of Your Health, or Is It Controlling You?
Micronutrient testing offers the most accurate, scientifically proven method of assessing nutritional deficiencies.
Be Proactive, NOT Reactive
Traditionally, a person waited to go to the doctor at the first signs of a symptom. Today, individuals are looking for way to not only manage illness with personalized treatment plans, but they are also seeking to achieve a higher level of wellness.
Eating a balanced diet, exercising and taking a multivitamin is simply not enough. Each person's body is unique in its own way. Due to the complexity of the human body, an individualized healthcare approach is the only way to guarantee optimal results.
What is Micronutrient Testing?
Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body's deficiencies.
What results will I see?
Micronutrient lab results include an overview page with all deficiencies listed, numeric and graphic reports easily identifying deficiencies and repletion and supplementation recommendations.
*Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to affect the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis.

Comprehensive male and female hormone test panels are offered. Both end-point steroid hormones as well as precursor hormones are included so the precise place of imbalance in the complicated hormonal cascade can be pinpointed. Thyroid hormones directly regulate every cell in our body as most basic functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. We also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid which can detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
CardioMetabolic and Pre-Diabetes Testing
Institute of Antiaging Medicine offers a complete CardioMetabolic Panel to measure risk of heart disease and diabetes. The new panel, which includes advanced Lipoprotein Particle ProfileTM , reports several clinically relevant biomarkers in three areas: (1) Glycemic control (2) Lipid Metabolism and (3) Vascular Inflammation. Each patient is given a pre-diabetic risk score ranging from 1-8 depending on their results.
How fast are you aging? Assess your biological age with Telomere Testing by measuring the length of your telomeres in relation to your age.
Is your cardiovascular treatment strategy best for your specific genetic composition? Apolipoprotein E Genotyping determines your genetic risk associated with the Apolipoprotein E gene. Results of this test have important implications in the treatment strategies for patients in reducing cardiovascular risk.
MTHFR Genotyping determines an individual’s genetic risk associated with the MTHFR gene. Results of this test have important implications in the treatment strategies for patients in reducing risk.
Factor V Leiden and Prothrombin
Genotyping indicate whether a person has an increased likelihood of forming blood clots (thrombosis). Presence of either gene increases the chance of deep vein thrombosis, and may also provide useful information on heart attack risk.
