Multiple Methods to Understand Your Health and Your Progress In Treatment

Dr. Hackett offers a multitude of testing to help you find the best path forward in achieving your best health. Better information for more refined interventions means a focused supplement regime and a clearer strategy to reach and maintain your wellness goals.  

SPECTRACELL MICRONUTRIENT PANEL

micronutrient logo_newSpectraCell-LaboratorisSpectraCell Laboratories specializes intercellular testing which can allow you to give nutritional assessments to your patients for various clinical conditions which includes arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolism disorders and micronutrient deficiencies.

  • Diagnoses are based upon clinical observation primarily and the static levels of certain nutrients in serum of the regular CBC test, but  does not represent indicators for assessing cell metabolism and utilization because nutrients in serum cannot show the degree the measured nutrients were (or were not) metabolized. The micronutrient test has shown to answer that question. Metabolism of nutrients means you are absorbing and utilizing the nutrition and supplements you are ingesting.
  • SpectraCell tests use a patented, chemically control media that contains the minimal amount of each essential micronutrient needed to support optimal lymphocyte growth or mitogenic response.
  • SpectraCell also provides a total antioxidant function test called SPECTROX which assesses the ability of cells to resist damage caused by free radicals and other forms of oxidative stress, the measurement on the test provides a portrait of each patients long term nutrient status.
  • Micronutrient testing allows Dr. Hackett to clearly identify functional intracellular deficiencies that limit mitogenic responses and cell mediated immune function. SpectraCell tests provide her and you, the patient, with an easy to read test report which includes numerical and graphic representations for each result and supplement information explaining each nutrient from deficient and how to obtain the nutrient needed in food.
  • Most adults who are taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient. Make sure that you are getting the nutrients you think you are taking by testing and getting Rx-only supplements. Vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiencies contribute to conditions such as endocrine dysfunction, GI disorders, arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
  • Micronutrient testing measures the internal environment of the white blood cell for selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients.
SPECTRACELL Comprehensive Lipid Profile

SpectraCell-LaboratorisNutrient and Lipid Level Considerations for Heart and Metabolic Health

  • Understand your metabolism of sugars and fats with this in depth test.
  • Metabolic Syndrome increases your chance of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Metabolic Syndrome risk increases with age. The development of metabolic syndrome is influenced by deficiencies in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
  • According to the American Diabetes Association type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is when the cells do not receive enough insulin causing glucose build up in the blood stream. This can cause a negative effect on a person’s eyes, kidneys, nerves and heart. Micronutrients play an important role in treating and preventing diabetes.
  • Immunidex score is one measurement to evaluate a person’s cell-mediated immune system performance, it measures T-cell lymphocyte proliferation. A higher immunidex score means a person can respond efficiently to exogenous threats and also pathogens, allergens and endogenous threats. Micronutrient deficiencies will undermine a person’s immune function, and lower the immunidex.
  • Before type 2 diabetes is diagnosed poor blood sugar regulation and unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels are present. The SpectraCell’s CardioMetabolic and Pre-Diabetes panels offer definitive diagnostic and clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and progression toward type 2 diabetes.
  • Pre-diabetes is a condition where the body cannot efficiently metabolize foods, especially carbohydrates impairing glycemic (blood sugar) control which progress to diabetes when not properly treated or addressed.
  • Pre-Diabetes Biomarkers identify metabolic abnormalities that may progress into diabetes.
  • Lipid profile indicates whether a person’s cholesterol-carrying lipoproteins are predominantly healthy or atherogenic and is useful in stratifying cardiometabolic risk in asymptomatic people.
  • Lipid Panel is a general marker for cardiometabolic risk, lowering LDL-cholesterol is currently the primary target of treatment. The triglycerides and low HDL-cholesterol associated with metabolic syndrome when elevated are negatively impact the pre-diabetic risk score.
  • Measuring cholesterol alone is insufficient for accurately assessing cardiometabolic risk by using SpectraCell’s Lipoprotein Particle it measures both the density and number of lipoprotein particles.
  • It is important to know your lipoprotein particle numbers because cardiovascular risk increases with a higher LDL particle count. More than 20 percent of the population has cholesterol-depleted LDL and a patient’s cholesterol may be normal but their lipoprotein particle number could be much higher than expected.
SPECTRACELL Telomere Testing

SpectraCell-Laboratoris

Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal fraying when a cell replicates. The length of your telomeres can indicate your cellular age which may or may not correlate with your chronological age. The longer and more intact your telomeres are the more youthful your health. SpectraCell’s Telomere Test can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age.

  • The Telomere Score is calculated based on the patient’s average telomere length in peripheral whole blood cells and is compared to telomere lengths from a population sample in the same age range as the patient to determine the patient’s percentile score.
  • Telomere length shortens with inflammatory diet, or one that increases oxidative stress which includes refined carbohydrates, fast foods, processed foods, sodas, artificial sweeteners, trans fats and saturated fats. To slow down telomere shortening dieting with a large amount and variety of antioxidants that improves oxidative defense and reduces oxidative stress. Consuming 10 servings of fresh and uncooked fruits and vegetables, mixed fiber, monounsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids, cold water fish, and high quality vegetable proteins will help preserve telomere length.
SPECTRACELL MHFTR Testing

mthfr logo_newSpectraCell-Laboratoris

MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid). Translation: this biochemical relationship refers to an important aspect of how your body absorbs B vitamins and deals with inflammation.

  • MTHFR is important because certain mutations in the gene coding for MTHFR produce an enzyme that has reduced activity, reduced activity can lead to elevated levels of homocysteine (a.k.a. hyperhomocysteinemia), especially when folate levels are low, high homocysteine (>13umol/L) may double the risk of developing illness or complications and MTHFR genotyping can provide information about potential causes of elevated homocysteine and approaches for addressing it.
  • People with high homocysteine levels, a familial history of cardiovascular disease, stroke or thrombosis and candidates for long-term methotrexate therapy should consider getting tested for MTHFR.

DUTCH test - comprehensive hormone panel

PA-Logo-NewDUTCH_Comprehensive_Hormone_Test_a_470x413_399-1Precision Analytical was started by Mark Newman with the help of some very talented physicians and analytical chemists. Mark spent years directing a urine hormone testing lab and most recently directed salivary hormone testing at ZRT laboratories for over six years gaining a fairly unique and thorough perspective on blood, urine, and saliva hormone testing. This unique experience led to a vision for a revolutionary way to test hormones. The question of how to best test hormones is what drove the creative process that initiated this lab. Blood (serum), urine, and salivary testing all have significant limitations. Our unique testing methods bridge the gap between existing methods to create better tools for healthcare providers to address the needs of their patients.

Precision Analytical exists to make it easier for patients and their healthcare providers to find answers to complex clinical questions that affect their lives every day. Our unique hormone testing and reporting methods create better tools for healthcare providers to explore hormone issues with their patients. We are fully committed to the mission of improving the lives of those who trust us for their laboratory testing needs.

Precision Analytical is a CLIA certified laboratory run by a small team of dedicated scientists with combined experience of over 50 years in performing laboratory tests and developing novel testing methods. Lab testing involves a series of questions that must be addressed in putting together methods that are accurate and precise (reproducible). Lab quality is critical to ensuring that healthcare providers make the best decisions they can for their patients.

Another issue that can hamper the clinical decision making process is the complexity of hormone testing results. We are committed to creating lab reports that help increase the confidence and competence of healthcare providers as they steer their patients towards a healthier life.

Hair Testing

Mineral Blueprint

Providing a mineral blueprint of one’s biochemistry, a hair tissue mineral analysis can provide pertinent information about one’s metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity.

 

A hair tissue mineral analysis performed by Analytical Research Labs, Inc., is a screening test for the level of 20 minerals and toxic metals in a sample of hair. It is a tissue mineral biopsy that is non-invasive, relatively inexpensive and extremely accurate. Our laboratory uses only the most advanced and sophisticated instrumentation available today, the Perkin Elmer Elan 9000 ICP Mass Spectrometer to assess mineral levels in parts per million or parts per billion.

 

A hair tissue mineral analysis is considered a standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals species. The same technology is used for soil testing and testing of rock samples to detect mineral levels.

 

Hair, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows. Although the hair is dead, the minerals remain as the hair continues to grow out. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the past three to four months, depending on the rate of hair growth.

Why is Our Hair Analysis Unique?

Several factors combine to make our hair tissue mineral analysis the best in the industry!

 

We are one of only two laboratories that do not wash the hair at the laboratory. Washing hair samples at the laboratory has been shown to erratically wash out the water-soluble elements. This creates much less accurate results. In a 2001 study in the Journal of the AMA (Seidel, S. et al., Assessment of Commercial Laboratories Performing Hair Mineral Analysis, JAMA, 285(1) Jan 3:67-72.) the two laboratories that did not wash the hair, of which we were one, showed superb reliability.

 

We use technologically advanced testing instruments, including the Perkin Elmer Elan 9000 ICP Mass Spectrometer.

 

We are proud of our laboratory quality control procedures. These include known controls which are tested at the beginning, middle and end of every batch of hair samples to insure the accuracy of the results.

 

We automatically retest any reading that is out of a normally expected range, provided sufficient hair is available for a second sample.

 

Test results are printed on an easy-to-read graph, unlike many of the other laboratories. This is a great benefit for both practitioners and their clients as well. The printed graph includes the mineral results, major mineral ratios and the oxidation type.

 

We offer the only complete individualized test interpretation by the method developed by the late Dr. Paul C. Eck, our founder. This 15-20 page report is unique as it includes information related to one’s metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, immune system, autonomic balance, glandular activity and metabolic trends, a personal dietary supplement program, basic diet recommendations and other information that can be inferred from the test results.

 

We offer the only personalized transition dietary plan based entirely upon the results of one’s hair tissue mineral analysis. This 25 page report includes three transition diets, menu plans and a wealth of information covering food preparation, eating habits, changing one’s habits, cooking, shopping and other valuable information.

Quintron - Hydrogen Breath Tests for Gut Health Analysis

Breath trace-gases were first used as an indicator that complex sugars (disaccharides) were not broken down (hydrolyzed) and absorbed in the small intestine during the digestion of foods. Hydrogen (H2) was measured
in the breath after administering a dose of the sugar to be studied. The widest application of the test was for lactose malabsorption or lactose intolerance, which is related to milk intolerance in a majority of adults world-wide. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) of the NIH (USA) estimates that between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant. The hydrogen breath-test (often referred to as the HBT) replaced a blood-test which was based on the absence of a blood glucose response following lactose ingestion. The test is not as reliable as the breath hydrogen test since it produces a greater proportion of false negative and false positive tests.

Take Control and Get your Life Back with Gut-Chek!

Knowledge is power. Gut-Chek for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) will let you know whether your pain and discomfort are due to this very common condition. With this knowledge you can begin the road to recovery and take back your life.

Gut-Chek for SIBO is the same hydrogen breath test used at leading medical centers and by thousands of doctors. It is simple to use, non-invasive and accurate. We will measure each sample for hydrogen and methane gases as well as perform a quality control measure of the CO2 levels. You can order this home test today for just $129.00 with free shipping and a no questions asked full refund policy if you are not completely satisfied.

Why use the hydrogen breath test to assess for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth?

Medical professionals agree that the glucose hydrogen breath test is the best option available to test for SIBO.  Glucose is more sensitive than lactulose to a wide range of bacteria, can be ordered online without a physician and unlike lactulose is not a prescription laxative.   The lactulose test is available by obtaining a healthcare professionals order and contacting us.  Gut-Chek gives you easy, at home access to this leading technology.

  • Simple: Easy to obtain, easy to use and easy to understand.
  • Convenient: Testing is done in the convenience of your home on your schedule.
  • Inexpensive: Same test, same information but a fraction of the cost of testing at a medical center or your doctor’s office.
  • Fast Results: All tests are analyzed immediately upon arrival in our lab and the results sent by email to you that day.

Why is testing for SIBO Important?

The incidence of bacterial overgrowth increases with age. Atrophic gastritis (chronic inflammation of the stomach), estimated to occur in 20 to 30% of healthy seniors, is the most common cause of reduced gastric acid secretion. This is a predisposing factor for bacterial overgrowth.

Recent research by Dr. Mark Pimentel has suggested a link between irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and bacterial overgrowth. In one study 78% of the 157 patients diagnosed with IBS also tested positive for SIBO using the hydrogen breath test. This is an important finding for people that suffer from IBS because SIBO can be successfully treated.

Patients with the following clinical conditions are at potential risk of SIBO:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Diabetes
  • Rosacea
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cirrhosis
  • Immunodeficiency syndromes
  • Chronic pancreatitis
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Celiac Disease
  • Long-term treatment with anti-secretory (e.g. PPI’s) medications

Fructose Malabsorption Test

Have you been told that you have IBS, celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or lactose intolerance but all the recommended dietary changes don’t make you feel better? Well the answer may be that you have been misdiagnosed. The symptoms of fructose malabsorption mimic all these diseases. Gut-Chek for fructose malabsorption is a simple way of determining whether your suffering can be eliminated through a different dietary approach. With this knowledge you can begin the road to recovery and take back your life.

Gut-Chek for fructose malabsorption is the same version of the hydrogen breath test used at leading medical centers and ordered routinely by thousands of doctors. It is simple to use, non-invasive and accurate. We will measure each sample for hydrogen and methane gases as well as perform a quality control measure of the CO2 levels. You can order this home test today for just $129.00 with free shipping and a no questions asked full refund policy if you are not completely satisfied.

 Why is testing for fructose malabsorption important?

The fact that people vary significantly in their ability to process fructose has only recently been understood. The issue has become more relevant in the last decade because of the changes to our diet. Whether you are consuming more fruit through fruit smoothies or eating more processed food the amount of fructose in the average diet has increased. Fructose malabsorption is commonly overlooked as a source of belly pain. Recent research seems to indicate that many IBS patients actually have fructose malabsorption and experience improvement of symptoms on a low fructose diet.

If you are not sure that the fructose malabsorption breath test is right for you, please read more.

 

Lactose Intolerance Test

Know for sure! Concluding that you have lactose intolerance based on symptoms has been shown by countless studies to be very inaccurate. Misdiagnosing lactose intolerance results in unnecessary and unhealthy self-imposed dietary restrictions. Gut-Chek for lactose intolerance is a simple way to use facts when making dietary decisions. With this knowledge, you can begin the road to recovery and take back your life.

Gut-Chek for lactose intolerance is the same version of the hydrogen breath test used at leading medical centers and ordered routinely by thousands of doctors. It is simple to use, non-invasive and accurate. We will measure each sample for hydrogen and methane gases as well as perform a quality control measure of the CO2 levels. You can order this home test today for just $129.00 with free shipping and a no questions asked full refund policy if you are not completely satisfied.

 

Why is testing for lactose intolerance important?

Lactose intolerance affects an estimated 50 million Americans. This condition is common in Asian, African, African-American, Native American, and Mediterranean populations.

Studies have shown that nearly 50% of people who self-report milk intolerance are normal digesters of lactose. Instead, they suffer from a functional bowel disorder such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) in children or some other gastrointestinal complication. Recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) occurs in 10 to 15% of school-age children. In self-reported milk intolerants, there is a significant, unnecessary reduction in milk consumption and insufficient dietary calcium intake.

The diagnosis of lactose intolerance by trained professional has relied on an interview process coupled with removing milk (and milk products) from the diet. The interview process is overly simplistic and quite imprecise.

 

Leaky Gut Syndrome Test

Do you sometimes feel like you have been poisoned? It may be that your body is doing just that to itself. Leaky Gut Syndrome is a condition where the intestinal walls have been damaged and toxins are able to get through to the blood stream causing an inflammatory response. Bloating and digestive distress are the most common symptoms but food allergies, chronic sinus infections, achy joints, fatigue, brain fog or unexplained rashes are also common.

The Gut-Chek test for leaky gut syndrome measures the small intestines ability to digest sugar with a simple breath test. If there is damage to the intestinal walls, the sugar will not be completely processed and the breath test will indicate Leaky Gut Syndrome is present.

Gut-Chek for Leaky Gut Syndrome is an innovative, non-invasive and accurate breath test. You can order this home test today for just $129.00 with free shipping and a no questions asked full refund policy if you are not completely satisfied.

 

Why is testing for Leaky Gut Syndrome important?

Modern medicine is just beginning to recognize this condition. The problem is that the symptoms of this disease are very broad and far-reaching and vary among people. Because these symptoms are not always related to the digestive tract (e.g. headaches), you could have Leaky Gut Syndrome and not even realize it. It is vital to look beyond the symptoms and discover the root cause of the illness. That’s why detecting Leaky Gut Syndrome may help you find a more effective solution to your condition.
