The Role of Adjunctive Lab Testing in Comprehensive Diagnosis

Female,Patient,And,Doctor,Have,Consultation,In,Hospital,Room Adjunct laboratory tests are specialized diagnostic tests that can provide valuable information when there are no clear structural or pathological findings that align with your clinical symptoms. With adjunctive lab testing, you can benefit from a more accurate diagnosis, which can ultimately help you lower treatment expenses and rule out certain conditions or diseases

At Modern Medicine, our healthcare providers may sometimes suggest additional lab testing to better understand the underlying causes of your health concerns. Here are some examples of what may be included in adjunctive lab testing.

Types of Adjunctive Lab Tests

Adjunctive lab testing includes undergoing a series of comprehensive tests including but not limited to the following:

Gastrointestinal Stool Testing

A stool test is a diagnostic tool that examines a stool sample to help diagnose gastrointestinal diseases and colon cancer. Stool tests can also help diagnose other conditions that affect the digestive tract, such as: 

  • Infections from parasites, viruses, or bacteria
  • Poor nutrient absorption
  • Cancer

Food Sensitivity and Allergy Testing

Food sensitivity tests measure the amount of IgG antibodies in the blood for each type of food. Meanwhile, food allergy tests measure the amount of IgE antibodies in the blood for specific foods. A skin or blood test is typically used for these types of tests.

Micronutrient Testing

Micronutrient deficiencies have been linked to chronic diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Micronutrient testing is a blood test that measures the levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential nutrients in the body. It’s a comprehensive nutrient analysis that can help identify functional deficiencies at the cellular level. 

Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitter testing can help diagnose health issues related to neurotransmitter loss, including weight problems, memory impairment, and insomnia. Through neurotransmitter testing, you can measure neurotransmitter levels and test for any imbalances using a blood or urine sample.

Adrenal (Cortisol/DHEA) Testing

Cortisol and DHEA are the most abundant adrenal hormones of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. They regulate immune, metabolic, and cognitive functions. The purpose of adrenal (cortisol/DHEA) testing is to determine if the adrenal glands are functioning properly. The test may also detect adrenal tumors or cancers.
