A medical laboratory or clinical laboratory is a laboratory where tests are usually done on clinical specimens in order to obtain information about the health of a patient as pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Laboratory tests typically check a sample of your blood, urine, or body tissues. Your doctor then analyzes the test samples to see if your results fall within the normal range. The tests use a range because what is normal differs from person to person. Many factors affect test results.
At Integrated Health Clinic our Naturopathic Doctors have at their disposal a full repertoire of laboratory testing, performed both in-house and external. These tests provide information critical to effectively understanding your health concerns and formulating an individualized program of care.
