Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile (A, E, D, K, CoQ10 & Beta-Carotene)


The Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile is a great tool to gain an overall perspective of a patient's health, nutrient processing, and dietary insufficiencies. Serum levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K plus beta-carotene and coenzyme Q10 are measured to evaluate total body status of these antioxidant nutrients. What are the benefits of measuring all fat-soluble vitamins together? Testing these nutrients together in one panel is important because nutrient functionality is dependent on the adequate supply of each nutrient. For bone health, taking vitamin D without adequate levels of vitamins A, E, and K may be detrimental since all are needed for proper bone calcification. Antioxidants, such as vitamin E, CoQ10, and beta-carotene, help ensure proper oxidation-reduction chain reactions. Vitamins measured include:

  • Vitamin A specific maintenance roles have been reported for vision, bone growth, skin and mucosal integrity, spermatogenesis, as well as protection against cataracts, atherosclerosis, macular degeneration and cancer.
  • Vitamin D, "the sunshine vitamin", is necessary for maintaining blood levels of calcium and phosphorus for healthy teeth and bones. Vitamin D also plays a vital role in immune functions and is essential for reducing cancer risk and health maintenance.
  • Vitamin E is an important free radical scavenger and protective antioxidant for membrane tissues, helping to stop damage to healthy cells. Both gamma and alpha tocopherol are reported to better assess oxidative stress and inflammation.
  • Vitamin K is important in the deposition of ionic calcium needed for proper blood coagulation and bone formation. Research finds vitamin K to be a potential protector against osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, and possibly cancer.
  • Beta-carotene serves as an important antioxidant in keeping cells healthy, and also serving as a pool that is converted to vitamin A when needed. Beta-carotene also helps to identify a healthy diet.
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) allows food energy to be converted into cellular energy. Organs with the highest need for energy, such as the heart, lungs, and liver, require high levels of CoQ10. CoQ10 also protects cells from free radicals, helps with proper mitochondrial function, and is associated with cardiovascular health.
The Fat-Soluble Vitamins Profile tests for levels of:
  • Vitamin A

Comprehensive Nutritional Deficiencies Profile w/(optional) Genomics


Why Use the Comprehensive Nutritional Deficiencies Profile? The Comprehensive Nutritional Deficiencies Profile (CNDP) identifies key nutritional deficiencies. The CNDP evaluates overall nutritional status to determine personalised dietry needs for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients. The CNDP is an advanced diagnostic tool to guide nutritional therapies, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic conditions. Select genomics biomarkers may be added to the profile for enhanced personalisation of therapies. CNDP with Genomics We are excited to announce that we will now be offering select single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) on our most complete nutritional profile. Assessment of these select genomic markers in conjunction with the CNDP supports broadened clinical insight and enhanced personalisation of therapeutics in an array of patient conditions such as depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, cardiometabolic syndrome, inflammatory conditions, and chronic pain syndromes.

The CNDP is designed to assist in the management of nutritional deficiencies. It is ideal for establishing a baseline assessment ahead of clinical intervention with nutraceuticals as well as subsequent monitoring if needed. What Advantage Does the Profile Offer Compared to Other Diagnostics? Although practices are changing, the traditional medical model does not currently place emphasis on biochemical individuality. The conventional clinical approach to nutrition-related symptoms does not routinely include utilisation of comprehensive nutritional testing. When testing is performed, select vitamins are assessed to determine if the level is sufficient to meet nutrient requirements based on healthy individuals. However, a comprehensive assay – such as NutrEval FMV – provides several advantages for patients with nutrient-related symptoms.
  • Identification of imbalances that may precede abnormal findings on standard laboratory panels
  • Comprehensive nutritional assessment indicating the functional need for specific nutrients, diet modification, antioxidant protection, detoxification and other therapies
  • personalised nutrient recommendations based on biochemical individuality
What Can Clinicians and Patients Expect from NutrEval Testing? Imbalanced or insufficient nutrients affect a wide range of body functions, producing symptoms that negatively affect the quality of life and, with some chronic conditions, may be considered a root cause. A structured comprehensive nutritional evaluation panel – such as the NutrEval FMV profile – to evaluate nutritional deficiencies provides clinical support by providing insight into development of personalised treatments. Identification and targeted treatment of underlying imbalance with customized nutrient recommendations can enhance other treatments and increase the patients' overall health and ability to combat chronic illness.

Urine Iodine


Iodine is an essential trace element, vital for healthy thyroid function. Adequate levels are required to enable the production of T3 and T4 thyroid hormones, whilst also being required in other areas of health. Deficiencies can lead to impaired heat and energy production, mental function and slow metabolism. Urine iodine is one of the best measures of iodine status. This test is not performed as a loading test, but can be used to establish existing levels or to monitor iodine supplementation. Test Type: Urine Test Please contact us for pricing




Vitamin B12 & Folate


The analysis of these important vitamins is part of an assessment of certain types of anaemia and nutrient status during pregnancy. Please contact us for pricing




Vitamin D


The Vitamin D test measures levels of Vitamin D to gain an overall perspective of a patient's health and dietary insufficiencies. Total Vitamin D (measured as 25-OH-D) generally refers to both its natural and synthetic forms. Vitamin D2 is synthetic, while D3 is naturally found in food and activated by sun exposure. To provide you with more complete information about your patients' intake, Genova Diagnostic's Vitamin D test measure both forms, 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), and 25-hydroxyvitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). The likelihood of vitamin D insufficiency is increased in malabsorption syndromes, aging (elderly individuals have a reduced capacity for vitamin D3 formation), darker skin (higher concentrations of melanin reduce efficiency in vitamin D3 production), obesity (fat-soluble vitamin D is stored in adipose, which reduces bioavailability), and minimal sun exposure, such as in winter or at more northern latitudes. Test Type: Blood Test Please contact us for pricing




Ferritin


Ferritin is the most sensitive marker for an iron deficiency as it is the main storage form of iron in the body. This test measures serum levels. Please contact us for pricing
