About Regular Testing

Lab testing may be suggested to you to provide us with an update on your gut helath as well as taking a look at bone resorption markers.

The lab also provides tests that take a look at your Osteoporosis profile using different methods such as urine/finger prick/hair mineral/full blood draw/stool/saliva. We will provide Phlebotomy clinics for you throughout the year otherwise we can offer tests that you can do at home where you can dispatch the samples to the lab and the results will come back to our clinic.

The testing we use will help us to gain a more thorough understanding of your health status and as a result we may gain an insight in order for us to prescribe accordingly to support your current health issues.


Here are some tests we use at the clinic:

Bone Health Testing

Osteoporosis Profile includes the testing of:

  • Enzymes
  • Minerals
  • Vitamins

Testing Bone Formation

Markers that are specific to bone formation include:

  • Bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BSAP)
  • Osteocalcin (OC)
  • N-terminal propeptide of type I procollagen(PINP)
  • Carboxy terminal propeptide of type 1 collagen (PICP)

Testing Bone Resorption

Markers that are specific to bone resorption include:

  • N-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (NTX)
  • C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (CTX)
  • Pyridinoline (PYR)
  • Deoxypyridinoline (Dpd)

Hair Mineral Analysis:

Maybe used for:

  • Toxic Metals
  • Hair Mineral ratios
  • Mineral Reference Ranges

Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA):

Provides the levels of long chain fatty acids (LCFA) which are normally broken down by pancreatic lipase and absorbed by the intestinal mucosa. Elevated levels of LCFAs in the stool suggest fat malabsorption in the small bowel, possibly resulting from bile salt insufficiency, excessive dietary fat, or inflammation within the intestinal mucosa. The total faecal fats are calculated as the sum of faecal triglycerides, phospholipids, cholesterol and long chain fatty acids (LCFAs). Elevated levels reflect pancreatic insufficiency (expect elevated triglycerides), malabsorption (expect elevated LCFAs or cholesterol), or both.

Urine Testing

Looking at reference ranges of some minerals;

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Phophorus
  • Zinc

Other Testing

Other Testing we provide include Vitamin D profile, Lipid profile and Thyroid profile

Regular testing will help...

Test results support the improvement of gut integrity

Test results provide the prescription of personalized supplementation

Results of lab testing checks biomarkers to closely monitor reference ranges for deficiencies and toxicities

Lab tests can assess Gastro issues/Bone formation & Bone resorption
