Bloodwork (LifeLabs)

Naturopathic physicians provide access to hundreds of routine and specialized lab tests that help manage wellness programs as well as predict, diagnose, and monitor both acute and chronic disease. Naturopathic physicians use Life Labs and can order all of the blood tests that are available.

– Ferritin (for diagnosing anemia)
– Fasting Insulin
