Access to advanced functional testing and interpretation from an experienced Functional Medicine Doctor is one of the real strengths of our clinic. Our advanced nutritional and metabolic panels can give real insight into the root causes of chronic illness and allow us to accurately track progress and create bespoke treatment plans.

Our Doctor team are also trained in nutritional Genomics through Lifecode Gx. Understanding genomic causes for dysfunction is often helpful in complex or difficult cases. However, we do not offer genomic interpretation without organic acid screening as we feel it is important to look at the current metabolism alongside underlying genetic predisposition to make informed treatment decisions in this complex and emerging area of medicine.

Please note – these tests can only be ordered by existing patients. If you would like an appointment please complete the form on this page

Home phlebotomy (UK-based): Arrange to have your bloods taken in advance of your appointment in the comfort of your own home or office. Our partner Innuvi provide phlebotomy services via a UK-wide network of nurses. Other providers may be recommended in some circumstances.

Appointments can be cancelled up to 48 hours in advance with no charge. Cancellation with less than 48 hours’ notice or a failure to attend attracts the full fee –£75

Thriva Blood tests:

Thriva are our preferred UK supplier of standard blood tests for our new patient health screens and follow up testing. Offering excellent value and a wide range of laboratory testing, Thriva screening panels are offered to all of our new patients.

New Patient Health Screen:

Our New Patient screen is offered to all new patients and is a comprehensive standard panel including:

  • Full blood count, Kidney Function and Liver function
  • Lipid profile
  • HbA1c (diabetes screen)
  • High Sensitivity CRP (sensitive inflammation screen)
  • Active B12 and Total B12, Folate, Advanced iron profile, Vitamin D
  • Coeliac Disease screen
  • Advanced Thyroid profile

We also offer many other bespoke panels including:

Advanced Thyroid Panel

Thyroid Advanced profile with Reverse T3

Vitamins and iron

Endocrine Clinic pre-BHRT assessment

Genova Diagnostics

We have access to all of Genova’s extensive functional testing panels but list those most commonly used in clinic below. The following kits can be posted directly to your address:

Metabolomix + Test: Urine Organic and amino acids including biomarkers for:

  • Protein digestion and absorption,
  • Yeast and bacterial dysbiosis,
  • Intracellular B Vitamins,
  • Inflammatory markers.

GI Effects Comprehensive stool analysis. This test offers valuable insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome.

Lactulose Hydrogen and Methane Breath test (SIBO analysis) A breath test which captures exhaled hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) gases following patient ingestion of a lactulose solution to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.

Elemental Analysis Profile Evaluates recent toxic element exposure and assesses nutrient mineral status.

Homocysteine Used to assess ‘methylation’ capacity – may be used to monitor therapy in those with previous high levels. High homocysteine levels can contribute to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and dementia.

Urine Iodine – Useful when assessing thyroid problems and nutritional status.

Adrenal Stress Profile – Used to assess cortisol levels through the day and assess adrenal gland function.

Regenerus Laboratories

We hold and account with Regenerus and the following tests may be advised for you:

Hair Toxic and Essential Elements An inexpensive and valuable screen for physiological excess, deficiency or maldistribution of elements. As protein is synthesised in the hair follicle, elements are permanently incorporated into the hair and represent a temporal record of element metabolism and toxic exposure.

Other Labs

As well as the labs detailed above, we also work with specialist screens from:

  • Lifecode Gx Genomic panels designed to assist in Functional Medicine treatment planning which can help us to understand underlying genetic predispositions to specific conditions and how these may be addressed with nutritional and lifestyle intervention.
  • MELISA(specialists in metals allergy testing based in Germany).
  • Armin Laboratories (specialists in Lyme Disease and Viral infection screening).
  • TDL (UK based Private lab with extensive traditional testing which may not be accessible elsewhere).
