The Nutritional Deficiencies Panel helps indicate how you metabolize key vitamins and nutrients. Dietary vitamins and minerals are critical for nourishment, energy, immunity, and healing. Deficiencies in essential nutrients can contribute to many health ailments, such as vision loss, osteoporosis, anemia, depression and more. Studies indicate that genetics play a large role in nutritional deficiencies. The information provided in this Nutritional Deficiencies Panel allows for patients and providers to make informed dietary and supplement choices. A number of genes are included that determine the function of key vitamins and iron.
Ideal Candidates for this panel include individuals with:
Anemia as evidenced by mucosal or nail bed pallor
Abnormalities in lab results for the complete blood count (High or low MCV, low MCH, low HgB, hyper-segmented neutrophils)
Rickets or osteomalacia
Poor response to nutritional therapies
Poor growth in children
Our partners at Kashi Clinical Laboratories use the latest in quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction instrumentation with a high degree of sensitivity for detecting gene snips accurately.
Scientific rigor matters
SNP’s are only included in our panels when peer reviewed studies show there is a clear connection with treatment decision making, the studies are relevant across a range of population types, clinical intervention is indicated, and that nutritional or other lifestyle choices can affect the regulation of gene expression.
