Micronutrient Testing

If you’re dealing with negative physical symptoms, don’t look or feel your best, have a chronic or acute illness or other adverse health conditions, there may be an underlying factor contributing to your condition called a micronutrient deficiency. If you’re deficient in micronutrients, it will negatively impact your health. At San Antonio Prime Wellness in San Antonio, TX, we offer micronutrient testing to help patients optimize health and wellness so they can live their healthiest, most vibrant lives.

Micronutrient Testing

Micronutrient testing is a way to optimize your health and wellness by getting to the root of your symptoms. Many people don’t realize that health conditions and negative physical symptoms are directly related to micronutrient deficiencies. Those deficient in important micronutrients often deal with inflammation and chronic disease, negatively impacting every area of life.

Micronutrient testing can measure vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, fatty acids, metabolites, and carbohydrate metabolism, as well as your total antioxidant function and immune response, to shed more light on the way your body receives and handles micronutrients. The testing results can help you move forward with a better understanding of how you can give your body what it needs to support health and wellness.


What Are the Symptoms of Micronutrient Deficiency?

There are many different symptoms indicative of a micronutrient deficiency, and different medical conditions and statuses are affected by how your body handles and absorbs micronutrients. Some of the most noticeable symptoms that indicate a micronutrient deficiency include:

  • Poor or weak immune system
  • Regular migraines
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Skin conditions
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Digestive issues and disorders (Celiac disease, IBD, IBS, SIBO)
  • Tingling sensation in the hands and feet
Aside from these particular symptoms, some health conditions worsen due to cellular micronutrient deficiencies. Many of these medical conditions can be managed, treated, or even prevented and reversed by addressing a micronutrient deficiency. Some of the medical conditions and statuses affected by the way your body absorbs and utilizes micronutrients include:
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Inflammation
  • PCOS
  • Poor response to stress
  • Hypertension
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Fertility issues
  • Mood related disorders
  • Arthritis
  • ADD and ADHD
  • Cardiovascular disease

What Causes Micronutrient Deficiencies?

There are many different factors that contribute to micronutrient deficiencies. Even those who live a healthy lifestyle, eat a healthy diet, and engage in lifestyle activities that promote health on all levels can suffer from a micronutrient deficiency. Some of the most common causes of micronutrient deficiencies include malabsorption, typically related to stress, acute and chronic illnesses and the medications prescribed to treat them, the aging process, biochemical individuality, and lifestyle habits. The total amount of physical activity you get on a day-to-day basis, the prescription or over-the-counter medication you use, alcohol consumption, and smoking can all determine how your body handles micronutrients.

How Does the Micronutrient Testing Process Work?

The micronutrient testing process is simple and minimally invasive. It begins with a standard blood draw. We will take a blood sample, typically from a vein in your arm, and then send that sample to a lab where the vitamins, fatty acids, minerals, antioxidants, and metabolites in your blood will be measured.

This test is the most accurate way to determine whether you suffer from a nutritional deficiency so that you can take the necessary steps to correct that deficiency, thereby improving your overall health and wellness and alleviating negative physical symptoms.

How Long Does It Take to Get Results?

Once you come in for the micronutrient testing process, you can expect to receive your results in 14 days. We review the results with you and then design a treatment plan to help remedy your deficiency so that you can experience optimal health and wellness.

What Does the Test Measure?

Micronutrient testing is a comprehensive process. The testing process is quick and painless, but the results are extremely informative. Once you complete the testing, we’ll provide results showing the measurement of 31 different vitamins, amino and fatty acids, minerals, antioxidants, and metabolites in your blood.
