Micronutrient deficiencies are becoming increasingly common. Even if you are supplementing, you may not be assimilating or absorbing the nutrients properly. 92% of Americans are deficient in one or more nutrients at the Recommended Daily Allowance level, which do not necessarily reflect the nutrients required for optimal health.
The micronutrient panel uses a blood sample to provide a comprehensive analysis on how efficiently you are using your vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and fatty acids at a cellular level. The test also measures your carbohydrate, glucose, fructose and fat metabolism. This is unique from standard serum nutrient tests, which do not evaluate if the cells are absorbing and utilizing these nutrients at a functional level.
Dr. Wills will review and interpret your test results, and work with you to address the cause of your deficiencies to optimize levels. Replenishing may be done by improving digestive tract function, making appropriate dietary changes or through oral, intravenous or intramuscular supplementation.
