Functional Medicine Diabetes Program
Discover how our Functional Medicine Diabetes Program can help you address blood sugar issues like diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance, and improve your metabolic health naturally.
Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 29 million people in the US currently have diabetes. Still, as many as 8 million are not yet aware that diabetes is affecting their health.
Signs and symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes with hyperglycemia can include increased thirst, increased urination, increased appetite, fatigue, blurred vision, and nausea. Additional indicators are slow-healing wounds, erectile dysfunction, and mensuration problems, as well as neurological issues.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommend diabetes screening for adults age 45 and older and for adults who are under 45 years of age, overweight, and have any additional risk factors for type 2 diabetes. Some risk factors include being overweight, obese, or physically inactive, high blood pressure, blood glucose dysregulation, and dyslipidemia. Additional factors to consider are a relative with diabetes, a history of gestational diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and a history of cardiovascular disease. The early detection of risk factors, including hidden risks, equates to a more timely intervention to stop or delay the progression to diabetes before it becomes more complex to manage.
The Functional Medicine Comprehensive Diabetes Panel can help identify individuals with insulin resistance or prediabetes who are at risk of developing diabetes. This panel incorporates a complete blood count, a comprehensive metabolic panel, and a complete urinalysis. Also included in this panel is antibody testing for type 1 diabetes, hemoglobin A1c with average glucose, GlycoMark, and C-peptide. Another critical component in this panel is a nutrient assessment of vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, as well as the advanced NMR LipoProfile.

Blood Chemistry Analysis (value $1,158) ⭐
(Functional Medicine Comprehensive Diabetes Panel 2020) included in this panel is antibody testing for type 1 diabetes, hemoglobin A1c with average glucose, a nutrient assessment of vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, as well as the advanced NMR LipoProfile.
Food Inflammation Test (FIT) (value $750) ⭐
The Food Inflammation Test (FIT) employs unique methods that detect both IgG antibody and Immune Complexes together to determine the reactivity of each sample against a wide variety of food antigens. Measuring IgG and Immune Complexes together increases the sensitivity over other tests which measure IgG alone.
Measures sensitivity to 176 foods, colorings and additives spanning all major food groups.
GI Map (value $700) ⭐
In the last few decades, DNA Analysis has transformed the field of microbiology. The National Institutes of Health have followed suit with initiatives such as the Human Microbiome Project, which characterized the microbiome from over 15 habitats of the body in more than 200 healthy human subjects using DNA analysis.
Heavy Metals Toxicity Test
Red Blood Cell (RBC) Elements (value $300) ⭐
Red blood cell (RBC) elements tests are used to assess the status of essential elements with important intracellular functions, such as magnesium, copper and zinc. Deficiencies or excesses of these essential elements affect numerous metabolic processes. RBC element analysis is also useful for the assessment of ongoing or recent exposure to specific toxic metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, methylmercury and thallium, that accumulate preferentially in erythrocytes.
Organic Acid Test (value $558)⭐
The Organix® Comprehensive Profile is a nutritional test providing insights into organic acids and a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Additionally, children’s reference ranges are designed to provide more accurate pediatric nutritional evaluations. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize patient responses and lead to improved patient outcomes.
Functional Medicine Health Report (value $400) ⭐
Each patient possesses unique biochemical characteristics, just like fingerprints. Even for patients with the same condition, their contributing imbalances may be very different. That is why, for optimal results, health decisions should incorporate understandable, actionable information about one’s biochemistry. The Functional Medicine Health Report provides this insight with precision and is augmented by research-backed nutraceutical recommendations.
The Functional Medicine Health Report takes your patients’ lab data and analyzes it to help you understand what’s going on inside.
Access To Events (Webinars, Podcasts, & Facebook Class Facilitations) ⭐
