Diagnostic Profiles

BioMed can provide a wide range of diagnostic profiles taken from hair, blood, or saliva including:

BioMed has for several years used Genova Diagnostics - a trusted and reliable provider of comprehensive and innovative clinical laboratory services

for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of complex chronic disease. Chronic diseases are often complex and Genova's system-based testing helps BioMed

develop targeted treatments for their patients. Easy-to-read colour graphic reports synthesise test results into user-friendly information and facilitates

practitioner-patient communication.

Genova provides a 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

One of the most up-to-date tests available is:

NutrEval FMV Profile Testing - a comprehensive test for identifying functional nutritional deficiencies and insufficiencies

Nutritional profiles help practitioners identify root causes of dysfunction and treat clinical imbalances that are inhibiting optimal health.

These advanced diagnostic tools provide a systems-based approach for clinicians to help their patients overcome chronic conditions and live a healthier life.

Why Use the NutrEval FMV Profile?

The NutrEval FMV®is both a blood and urine test that evaluates over 125 biomarkers and assesses the body's functional need for 40 antioxidants,

vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients. Personalized recommendations for nutrients are

determined by using an algorithm based on the patient's test findings. The NutrEval Plasma and NutrEval FMV (first morning void) differ based on

which sample type is used to measure amino acids, plasma or urine.

The NutrEval report offers:

  • Nutrient recommendations for key vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and digestive support
  • Functional pillars with a built-in scoring system to guide therapy around needs for methylation support, toxic exposures, mitochondrial dysfunction,
  • fatty acid imbalances, and oxidative stress
  • Interpretation-At-A-Glance pages for patient education
  • Dynamic biochemical pathway charts for clearer understanding

When should testing for NutrEval FMV be considered?

According to the World Health Organization, every country in the world is affected by one or more forms of malnutrition. The term malnutrition addresses

3 broad groups of conditions:

  • Undernutrition (wasting, stunting, underweight)
  • Micronutrient-related malnutrition from inadequate or excess vitamins or minerals
  • Overweight, obesity, and diet-related noncommunicable diseases (such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some cancers)

Proper nutrition is key to preventing a number of diseases. Nutrients are necessary to feed every cell and ensure all body systems are functioning properly.

Testing can help clinicians and patients gain an understanding of how nutritional imbalances may be impacting their health. Certain conditions or dietary,

genetic, and lifestyle factors may predispose a person to having nutrient imbalances.

Symptoms and conditions associated with nutrient imbalances

  • Mood disorders
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Obesity/ Insulin resistance/ Type 2 Diabetes
  • Autism
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Issues/ Malnutrition/ Dietary Guidance
  • Maldigestion/Malabsorption
  • Increased nutrient demand in physical trauma/healing

What advantage does the NutrEval FMV offer compared to other diagnostics?

The NutrEval FMV 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.

A Functional Nutritional Assessment

There are various methods of assessing nutrient status, including intracellular and extracellular direct measurement, and measuring biochemical

pathway markers that require specific nutrient cofactors for proper metabolism. The NutrEval uses a combination of these methods and synthesizes

the information via an algorithm that determines personalized nutrient needs. The algorithm is based on functional markers shown in the literature

to be associated with a need for a particular nutrient.

Functional evaluation of nutritional status assesses metabolic intermediates produced in enzymatic pathways of cellular energy production, detoxification,

neurotransmitter breakdown, and amino acid metabolism. Specific metabolites outside of reference range may signal a metabolic inhibition or block.

This abnormality may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect. It is possible for an individual to have

normal blood levels of a vitamin in order to maintain homeostasis, while exhibiting signs of insufficiency/deficiency for that vitamin.

For this reason, direct testing of individual nutrients alone does not provide a complete picture.

What can patients expect from NutrEval FMV testing?

Personalized recommendations for amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, digestive support, and other nutrients are provided for each patient.

Additionally, exposure to select toxic substances and oxidative stressors may need to be addressed. Comprehensive stool testing or SIBO breath testing

may be appropriate to investigate the possible cause for maldigestion/malabsorption and dysbiosis.
