LAB TESTING

Lab testing is available for Virginia nutritionists -- for in-state labs and for reciprocal out-of-state labs.

Tests for Medicare and Medicaid patients require a physician’s authorization.  All labs used are CLIA

certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act, 1988, administered by Medicare).

STANDARD TESTING

Standard tests, such as chemistry, CBC, lipids, etc, are done at Lab Corp or Quest Diagnostics.  These labs

bill your insurance directly.

NUTRITIONAL LAB KITS

A variety of nutritional tests are performed at specialty labs, and all are CLIA certified.  Special lab kits are

provided in approved shipping containers.  Tests include: vitamins, minerals, food allergies, heavy metals,

stool tests, neurotransmitters, comprehensive cardio-metabolic panels, and other tests.  Most tests are

covered by PPO and POS insurance plans, Medicare and Tricare.
