    Celiac & Gluten Sensitivity Blood Spot

    $179.00

    Celiac disease (CD) is often undiagnosed and is caused in genetically predisposed individuals by abnormal intestinal permeability and abnormal immune response to gluten, a protein complex found in wheat, barley, spelt and rye. The inflammatory autoimmune response damages the lining of the small bowel and is associated with diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, and systemic autoimmune conditions.  Gluten sensitivity can cause similar symptoms but without the same level of tissue damage.  The Celiac & Gluten Sensitivity profile from Doctor’s Data helps differentiate between CD and gluten sensitivity by evaluating the serum titers of IgA and IgG  for deamidated gliadin peptide, gliadin, and gluten.

    DNA Methylation Blood Spot

    $650.00

    Identification of SNPs that influence health and disease risk may improve clinical success and allow patients to optimize health and wellness.

    The DNA Methylation Pathway Profile allows clinicians to screen their patients for a variety of genetic changes (single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs) that may impact the function of important biochemical processes such as methionine metabolism, detoxification, hormone balance and Vitamin D function. The presence or absence of SNPs may modify disease risk. The risks may be reduced by lifestyle changes, and inefficient biochemical processes can be supported by diet and nutritional supplements to maximize the functions of metabolic pathways.

    Vitamin D Blood Spot

    $120.00

    25-Hydroxyvitamin D, known for its role in bone health and calcium absorption, also appears to affect immune function, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular issues, and other conditions. Vitamin D occurs in two forms—D3 is obtained from animal diet sources and through sun exposure, and D2 is obtained through vegetable diet sources. Both forms of the vitamin are used to fortify various foods and in supplements. Doctor’s Data uses the gold standard LC/MS QQQ method to measure Vitamin D2, D3 and total Vitamin D.
