Vitamin Deficiency Testing
Are you getting enough of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients for optimum health? You may assume you are getting the right nutrients if you eat a healthy diet or take oral supplements, but that is not always the case. Many factors can impact the level of nutrients absorbed and used by the body. The only way to know for sure is to undergo lab testing to determine the level of vitamins and other nutrients in the body. Our team at NexGen Health offers medical-grade vitamin deficiency testing at our facility in San Jose, CA as part of our treatment services.
All the vitamins and nutrients that you ingest must be absorbed in the digestive system. Some vitamins are fat soluble, requiring fat to assimilate them into the body. Water-soluble vitamins and minerals may not need fat, but they still can be limited in absorption due to other factors. Certain health conditions can impact the stomach and intestines, creating poor nutrient absorption. Other factors that can contribute to nutrient levels in the body include:
- Exercise and athletic training
- Stress and anxiety
- Injury, illness or surgery recovery
- Alcohol, tobacco or drug use
- Nutritional variety
Many people are surprised to learn they have a nutritional deficiency. Plus, even when nutrients are within the “normal” ranges, they may not be high enough to achieve optimum health based on your genetics and lifestyle.
Benefits of Medical Grade Nutrient Testing
Our medical team at NexGen Health customizes our IV drip therapies and other health services to each individual patient. Medical grade nutrient testing can give us a baseline of where you are in achieving optimum health. We also use vitamin, mineral and amino acid testing to monitor your nutrient levels as you begin IV therapy and using oral supplements. In many cases, low levels of certain nutrients can help diagnose health issues and identify the best treatment plan to improve health and wellness.
