Lab Testing Q&A

What is lab testing?

Lab testing is a broad service that includes tests and assessments for various disorders, diseases, and body functions. Lab tests can offer extensive information about your health that’s not readily apparent with just a physical exam. In fact, lab tests can diagnose or rule out a wide variety of suspected illnesses. 

Beyond their diagnostic purposes, lab tests can also offer insight into how well a specific treatment is going or help with treatment planning.  

Many lab tests involve a blood draw, while others involve other fluid or tissue samples from your body. The team lets you know how the test works and what to expect. They can also inform you why you’re getting the test and what the positive or negative results indicate. 

What are the purposes of lab testing?

There are many reasons why you might need a lab test at Nizhoni Functional Medicine. Lab testing gives you answers about your biochemistry and the function of your body. They can also detect various infections like viral, bacterial, or fungal illnesses. 

Nizhoni Functional Medicine provides routine lab testing options like:

  • Lyme disease tests
  • Genetic tests
  • COVID-19 antibody tests
  • Food sensitivity tests
  • Food allergy tests
  • Micronutrient tests
  • Tick-borne disease tests
  • Wheat Zoomer™
  • Neural Zoomer™
  • Gut Zoomer™

The team recommends these tests based on your needs and symptoms. They often recommend testing during sick visits to gather more information about a suspected illness. 

When do I see results from lab testing?

In many cases, you can get your results before you leave the office. However, immediate results aren’t always an option depending on the test. While basic testing is available at Nizhoni Functional Medicine, advanced labs can analyze your samples more in-depth. 

If the team at Nizhoni Functional Medicine sends your sample to an outside lab, it’s because that lab can evaluate the sample in more detail to give you accurate results. As soon as your results are available, which can take several days to over a week, the team contacts you right away. They let you know what the results mean and how they’ll influence your treatment plan.
