Diagnostic tests are used for nutrition patients. They can help clarify health conditions and deficiencies. Tests can also provide added reassurance that a course of action is appropriate.
A patient ‘MOT’ can be done annually to check health levels are maintained. Kits are sent to the patient at home. After taking the sample, the patient returns the kit to the laboratory for analysis. The tests are very quick and simple to do. Full and clear instructions are given with every test.
Testing services incur an additional cost over and above the nutrition consultation fee. Some of our most popular tests are listed below. Get in touch for the full range or for further information.
