Robert H. Thomas, MD, FACP, and the team at Coral Gables Executive Physicians in Coral Gables, Florida, use the micronutrient test to measure the overall health and wellness of your body through evaluating the body's cells. For more information, call the office today.
Measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your body’s cells by evaluating over 33 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, all of which play an important role in overall health and wellness.
It allows us to nutritionally assess for deficiencies and how any of these relate to a broad variety of clinical conditions including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, immunological disorders, and metabolic disorders.
The micronutrient exam is an excellent way to test the different vitamin, mineral, antioxidant and immune system functions. This is important because, from medical literature, there is a very strong correlation between many chronic and medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancers, autoimmune conditions that are based upon functional deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals and certain antioxidant levels as well.
Once the test results return, your provider can formulate a plan specific to your needs rather than just a generic formulation. For example, some people may do well with a change in dietary habits. Other people may need pharmaceutical grade strength vitamins or supplements in order to correct their deficiencies.
