Tests

At Wolfe Functional Medicine, we are proud of our full-suite of products, services, and tests designed to help our patients reach their full health and performance potential.

Food Sensitivity/Allergy Testing

Sensitivity testing is even more important than allergy testing because sensitivities can cause cumulative damage and inflammatory conditions even if they don’t cause an acute allergic response!

Comprehensive Diagnostic Stool Analysis/Parasitology Testing

This test can identify if there is an imbalance in healthy gut flora and/or essential short chain fatty acids, as well as identify inflammatory markers. It also tells us which bacteria/parasites are responsible for any imbalance or infection and with which healthy bacteria (microflora) you may be experiencing deficiencies.

Elemental Hair Analysis or Comprehensive Urine Elemental Profile

These tests are ideal for patients suspected of toxic element/heavy metal toxicity as well as potential nutrient mineral wasting.

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth Breath Test

This test identifies bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine which is a common condition that often contributes to chronic symptoms of maldigestion and malabsorption, including boating, gas, diarrhea, irregularity, and abdominal pain.

Intestinal Permeability Test

This test allows us to confirm “Leaky Gut Syndrome“. That means that the tight junctions of gut lining become weak and often separate causing unwanted particles to pass through the lining and into the gut stream. This can cause a host of inflammatory health conditions, auto-immune diseases, depression and anxiety, as well as skin problems, just to name a few.

Dutch Hormone Testing

Sex hormone such as Estrogen metabolites and Androgen Metabolites as well as Free Cortisol patterns. DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily (diurnal) pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin (6OHMS), 8-OHdG and six organic acids. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.

Urine Mycotoxin Testing

Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage. This is a very important test for “Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome”.

Lyme Testing

Early and late stage Lyme testing through IgeneX. This test is an immunoblot test vs. western blot and is found to be much more sensitive. This is completed through a blood test.
