Laboratory Testing

At Dr. Pappas Health, we take a comprehensive approach to fitness support that incorporates both functional medicine and the Mediterranean lifestyle.

Laboratory Testing

We combine the principles of functional medicine with the insights gained from advanced laboratory testing to provide comprehensive health assessments and personalized treatment plans. Located in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia, our team is dedicated to helping you understand and optimize your lab test results to support your health and well-being.

About Functional Medicine

Functional medicine takes a proactive, holistic approach to health care, focusing on identifying and addressing the root causes of illness rather than simply treating symptoms. By considering the unique genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that influence your health, we can develop personalized treatment plans to promote optimal wellness and vitality.

Advanced Laboratory Testing

Our laboratory testing service utilizes state-of-the-art diagnostic tests to assess various aspects of your health, including:

  1. Nutritional Status: Comprehensive tests can evaluate your levels of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, providing valuable insights into potential deficiencies or imbalances that may be impacting your health.

  2. Hormone Levels: Hormone testing can assess your levels of key hormones such as cortisol, thyroid hormones, sex hormones, and insulin, helping to identify hormonal imbalances that may be contributing to symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, and reproductive issues.

  3. Gut Health: Advanced stool testing can analyze the composition of your gut microbiome, identify harmful pathogens, assess digestive function, and detect inflammation or dysbiosis that may be associated with gastrointestinal symptoms or conditions.

  4. Cardiovascular Markers: Blood tests can evaluate your lipid profile, inflammation markers, insulin resistance, and other cardiovascular risk factors to assess your risk of heart disease and guide preventive strategies.

  5. Genetic Testing: Genetic testing can provide insights into your unique genetic makeup, including genetic predispositions for certain health conditions, drug metabolism, and nutrient metabolism, helping to tailor treatment plans to your individual needs.

Our Approach

At Dr. Pappas Health, we believe that laboratory testing is an essential tool for uncovering hidden imbalances and guiding personalized treatment strategies. Our approach to laboratory testing includes:

  1. Comprehensive Assessment: We’ll conduct a thorough review of your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle factors to determine which laboratory tests are most appropriate for your individual needs.

  2. Interpretation and Analysis: Once your test results are available, our team of experienced practitioners will interpret and analyze the data in the context of your overall health profile, identifying any areas of concern or opportunities for optimization.

  3. Personalized Treatment Plans: Based on your lab test results and health goals, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that may include dietary and lifestyle modifications, nutritional supplementation, hormone therapy, gut healing protocols, and other targeted interventions to address underlying imbalances and promote optimal health.

  4. Ongoing Monitoring: We’ll regularly monitor your progress through follow-up testing and adjustments to your treatment plan as needed, ensuring that we’re effectively addressing your health concerns and optimizing your outcomes over time.
