Laboratory Testing

I offer all basic laboratory testing you can obtain through your medical doctor – however I encourage that basic testing be done through your medical doctor (if they agree there is a valid medical reason to do so) as it will be covered under your OHIP plan.  OHIP does not cover testing recommended by naturopathic doctors.  As part of a thorough assessment, I may recommend having the following tests to be requisitioned:

  • Complete Blood Count + Differentials
  • Iron (ferritin) levels
  • B12 levels, RBC folate
  • Thyroid panel – TSH, fT4, fT3
  • Liver Function Tests
  • Kidney Function tests
  • Blood sugars – fasting glucose, fasting insulin, HOMO-IR, HbA1c
  • Serum hormones – DHEA-S, free testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, FSH, LH, prolactin
  • Vitamin D (25OHD) – typically not covered by OHIP
  • Cardiovascular risk screening – Cholesterol Panel, Homocysteine, hsCRP

Naturopathic doctors offer a wide range of Functional Diagnostic Testing, which are tests that provide us with in-depth information that aids in our understanding of the body as a whole.  Each test is recommended depending on the nature of your concerns. These tests are not covered by OHIP.

  • Digestive Health Tests – Food Sensitivity Testing (blood), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (Breath), Comprehensive stool analysis (for bacteria, parasites, fungus)
  • Heavy Metal Testing – Urine
  • Comprehensive Hormone Testing – DUTCH Steroid hormones (Urine test), Salivary Hormone testing (to monitor prescribed hormone-replacement therapy)
  • Comprehensive Metabolic testing – Organic Acid testing (urine), Micronutrient screens (blood)
