Micronutrient Testing at MetroMD
SpectraCell is a micronutrient blood test offered here at MetroMD. The purpose of this test is to determine any nutrient deficiencies one may have. Based on the results of this test our specialists can help guide your diet towards a direction that will ensure you are properly nourished.
Typically, this can be done by adjusting one’s diet alone. However, for people who have a hard time introducing or including nutrient heavy foods in their diet, there are different options. These options include vitamin therapy or the addition of supplements.
For vitamin therapy patients typically come in once a week or bi-weekly. An IV fusion enables patients to get proper nutrients directly to their bloodstream, our blends can be tailored to your needs. This means we can include more of the vitamins you are lacking!
If IVs are too time-consuming or you don’t like being poked supplements are the alternative option. Stone Natural Medicine is a great natural way to boost your vitamin intake. The variety of products offered are all naturally sourced from earth instead of being compounded in a pharmacy.
Regardless, it is important to have a good idea of what nutritional deficiency you may have if any. Typically patients perform SpectraCell tests annually or every 2-3 years. If you have any questions regarding this treatment or would like to set up your SpectraCell test you can give us a call at 323-285-5300.
