DIAGNOSTIC TESTING

FULL SPECTRUM TESTING AND EVALUATION

CCIM specializes in achieving precise diagnoses for conditions in the scope of internal medicine. Frequently people come to us who have suffered for years without diagnosis for complicated symptoms.

The first step is an evaluation with the physician: A comprehensive and extraordinarily thorough history and physical examination. Based on this initial assessment, further testing may be necessary. While any physician can order tests, Dr. DV specializes in interpretation of the tests, then using those interpretations to create customized programs targeted to the unique needs of each person. These treatment plans emphasize rapid improvement of symptoms, emotional well-being, and close follow-up.

Each patient undergoes a thorough diagnostic workup and establishment of diagnoses prior to initiating therapy.

BLOOD TESTS

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING

We use cutting-edge testing and resources to achieve an articulation of the underlying causes of presenting symptoms. Typically we discover the unique physiology and biochemistry, as well as organ and hormone function, of each person we serve.
  • Metabolic panels
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Blood sugars
  • Systemic and cardiac inflammation
  • Iron levels and blood counts
  • Vitamin D levels
  • Thyroid hormone levels
  • Liver biosynthetic capacity and function
  • Kidney function
  • Evaluation of clotting capacity
  • Zonulin – which measures intestinal permeability (“leaky gut”)

URINE & STOOL TESTS

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING

Levels of micronutrients (which are essential for optimal cellular function) including: Vitamins (E, C and A), minerals, CoQ10, organic acids, amino acids (including branched-chain), glutathione, alpha lipoic acid, pancreatic enzymes, probiotics, B-vitamins( including folic acid and B12), metabolic markers and lipid peroxides.
  • Neurotransmitter levels
  • DUTCH urine steroid hormone metabolite testing
  • Presence of infection
  • Kidney function
  • Pancreatic function
  • Inflammation
  • Gut Microbiome
  • Presence of parasites, fungus (Candida)
  • Levels of endogenous (“good”) bacteria
  • Levels of pathogenic (“bad”) bacteria
  • Measures of dysbiotic gut environment
  • Presence of food allergies
  • Amounts of small chain fatty acids and bile acids
  • Presence of infection
  • pH
