NutrEval 

[Genova Labs]

What is the NutrEval Test?

nutreval-fm-nutritional-test-blood-urine

NutrEval is our most comprehensive functional and nutritional assessment including:

  • Organic Acids: providing insight into nutritional cofactor needs, digestive issues, cellular energy production, neurotransmitter metabolism, detoxification, and now Oxalates!

  • Oxidative Stress: indicating problems with antioxidant capacity and oxidative damage

  • Amino Acids: essential and nonessential amino acids to indicate dietary intake, maldigestion or malabsorption, and amino acid metabolism - these can be assessed in either plasma or first morning void urine

  • Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids: reflecting dietary intake and metabolism of fatty acids measured in RBC's to assess important fatty acid imbalances

  • Nutrient & Toxic Elements: providing a window into short-term exposures to various toxins along with direct evaluation of key minerals

How is Genova’s Nutritional Testing Different?

  • Genova nutritional testing measures 100s of areas in the body that are impacted by poor nutrition. Your results are presented in a personalized report so that your doctor can help create a plan specific to your needs.

  • Genova’s tests identify subtle imbalances related to many common health issues that can be found before standard labs can detect them.

  • The test allows insights on how nutrition and the environment are impacting your body. Testing can reveal toxic exposures and measure your body’s ability to neutralize those toxins

What Advantage Does the Profile Offer Compared to Other Diagnostics?

The NutrEval Plasma is one of the most comprehensive nutritional profiles available assessing a broad array of macronutrients and micronutrients, as well as markers that give insight into digestive function, toxic exposure, mitochondrial function, and oxidative stress.

Genova provides a user-friendly report with clinically actionable results including:

  • Suggested digestive support and vitamin, mineral, amino acid, and fatty acid recommendations based on an algorithmic calculation of functional need for cofactors in the body's metabolism

  • Functional pillars with a built-in scoring system to guide therapy for methylation support, toxic exposures, mitochondrial dysfunction, fatty acid imbalances, and oxidative stress

  • Interpretation-At-A-Glance pages provide educational information on nutrient function, causes and complications of deficiencies, and dietary sources

Who Might Benefit From NutrEval Testing?

Research suggests that nutritional shortfalls or imbalances may be at the root of many chronic conditions. The NutrEval can help identify specific, personalized recommendations for even the most difficult-to-treat patient cases.

NutrEval Plasma testing is effective for patient concerns such as:

  • Curious about vitamin and mineral needs/ personalized supplement recommendation

Sample Report

What Can You Expect from NutrEval Testing?

Imbalanced or insufficient nutrients affect a wide range of body functions, producing symptoms that negatively affect the quality of life and, with some chronic diseases, may be considered a root cause. A structured comprehensive nutritional analysis – such as the NutrEval Plasma profile – to evaluate underlying imbalances provides clinical utility by supporting insight into development of personalized treatments.

 

 Identification and targeted treatment of underlying imbalance with customized nutrient recommendations can enhance other treatments and increase the patients' overall health and ability to combat chronic illness.
