At Framework Integrative Medicine, we offer standard screening and diagnostic labs, as well as specialty labs services. Our providers are trained to perform an in-depth evaluation of your blood chemistries and basic panels, looking beyond the standard “normal” ranges so you can focus on optimizing your health.
Imaging orders for screening and diagnostic evaluations can be sent to a location of your choosing based on insurance coverage and location. This includes orders for ultrasounds, X-rays, DEXA scans, CT, and MRI imaging when indicated.
We advocate for early screenings for autoimmune activity, hormone and thyroid imbalance when patients notice changes in their health. Early identification of these health concerns allows for a higher quality of care and disease prevention.
For your convenience, we offer in-house blood draws and urine screenings. We also have affordable cash lab pricing for patients without insurance coverage.
If you are in need of more specialized testing, we partner with reputable private labs to offer various options. Below are our most popular tests:
• Food Intolerance & Allergy Testing: Blood testing for food intolerances (IgG) and allergies (IgE) can reveal triggers for inflammation and lingering health symptoms that were previously hard to treat. Common symptoms of food intolerances include abdominal bloat, IBS symptoms, easy weight gain, migraines, hormone imbalance, fatigue, eczema and other rashes.
Traditional food allergies (IgE) that are mild can go unrecognized for years, meanwhile causing significant interruptions to you digestive function and overall health. We include IgE testing for the most common food allergies when ordering our extensive IgG intolerance panels.
• Gut Health Panels: For those with chronic gastrointestinal symptoms or suspected gut dysbiosis (imbalance), we offer comprehensive stool testing to screen for underlying causes. These panels test for chronic parasites and bacterial infections, inflammation, pancreatic function, blood, gluten antibodies and more. They can even reveal early markers for inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis.
• Urine & Salivary Hormone Panels: Comprehensive hormone testing sometimes requires looking beyond standard blood results, especially when symptoms and blood results don’t align. Salivary hormone testing provides highly sensitive results for free (biologically active) hormone levels, and allows for a more extensive evaluation of cortisol levels.Dutch urine testing is another high quality tool for evaluating your hormone levels, and most importantly, how your body metabolizes those hormones. It allows us to identify how you break down your cortisol, progesterone, testosterone and estrogens and includes metabolites for measuring melatonin production and certain vitamin deficiencies.
• Heavy Metal Testing: In our modern world we are surrounded by heavy metals on a daily basis. Exposures occur via our water, foods, skin and air. Whether you have a history of acute heavy metal poisoning or you’ve accumulated the toxins over time, heavy metals build up in our tissues and can negatively impact health through neurotoxic effects and endocrine (hormone) disruption.
For new, “acute” heavy metal exposures blood testing is fast and reliable. When we are looking for high levels of accumulated heavy metals over time, urine testing with a chelating agent is the recommended testing route. The chelating agent binds and removes the heavy metal(s), which we can then measure in your urine.
Conditions which may be triggered or worsened by heavy metal toxicity include autoimmune diseases, thyroid disease, nervous system disorders, and changes in cognition.
