As much as possible, Dr. Rispoli uses the most advanced laboratories, especially those that work with your health insurance companies for possible reimbursement.
Listed below are many examples of the kinds of tests she may order for you:
Genomic Insights Evaluates Over 12 Key Areas of Health
Methylation• Detoxification• Cognition• Inflammation• Anti-Aging• Endocrine• Structural• Energy/Metabolism• Estrogen Genomics• Androgen Genomics• Cardiometabolic• Gastrointestinal.
So basically by understanding your genetics you can navigate away from harmful foods for you, meds that your genes can't tolerate, what foods and exercises are good for you. All of this can have a huge impact on your health and longevity.
Testing might include Thyroid, Adrenal, Sex hormones, Growth hormone, Pituitary hormones, and Insulin, Osteoporosis Risk, Estrogen Metabolism Risk for cancer.
White Blood Cells and Lymphocyte subpopulations, baseline and stimulated cytokine levels, allergies or sensitivities, an autoimmune disease.
Testing for vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and organic acids, heavy metal, chemical exposures, vitamin D.
Evaluating digestion, absorption, inflammation, “Leaky Gut Syndrome,” intestinal dysbiosis, yeast/Candida, parasites, SIBO, and bacterial infections.
Testing for levels of toxic metals such as Mercury, Lead, and Cadmium. Certain other environmental toxins may also be evaluated.
To evaluate depression, anxiety, ADD, insomnia, fatigue, migraine headaches, and chronic pain.
Safe, non-invasive testing methods such as metabolic risk assessment through blood testing like s ApoB, Lp(a), Lp-PLA2, homocysteine, CRP, ApoE, fibrinogen, more in-depth cholesterol, and fat testing and insulin levels, Metabolic Analysis: BMI, for C-Reactive Proteins, A1C, Insulin and Leptin.
Skin testing, as well as blood testing for food and environmental allergies, gluten sensitivities, advanced testing for Celiac Disease, Seasonal nasal allergies, and Asthma. Elimination/Rotations Diets may also be used to determine food allergies and mold.
Percent lean mass and percent body fat.
Once this is done, the laboratory test can be mailed to you, or you can pick them up. Most tests are done in the privacy of your own home, except blood tests, we send you to a lab to have your blood drawn for these if you are in the local area.
The testing methods are urine, saliva, hair sample, or finger prick/blood spot.
After you pay for the test we mail you the kit, the results take two weeks, the test results will be mailed to us, and we will call you to go over the results, it’s that easy! All tests include the consultation for the report of findings in the price.
DNA Testing Advances the Application of Precision Medicine
Many SNPs can influence the odds, or risk, a patient has of developing a specific health condition. When it comes to specific diseases or syndromes, most SNPs carry low risks. Low risk does not mean that a SNP is unworthy of attention, but rather that the findings must be interpreted as part of an integrated whole, including other SNP result findings that the GenomicInsight ® panel identifies. GenomicInsight ® provides an unprecedented and comprehensive understanding of a patient’s SNP genomics, coupled with an explanation of each SNP, its potential impact on health, and interventions clinical research has shown will impact their expression. The Genomic Insight ® DNA test fosters meaningful conversations between clinicians and patients. Enjoy powerful clinician/patient bonds as you work together to optimize wellness.
