Diagnostic Tests

Morpheus8 treatment dubai

Allergies, vitamin deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and stress levels – these issues affect everyone in one way or another. With the advent of new medical technology, it’s easier now more than ever to track specific concerns that affect your health and come up with a plan of action.

Diagnostic testing is a noninvasive way to assess if your health is normal and determine the areas in which your body’s essential components are lacking. After a diagnostic test, we provide professional consultation about your health and recommended treatments, helping you to live your best life yet.

How Does Diagnostic Testing Work?

How Does Diagnostic Testing Work?

Diagnostic tests are performed to confirm or rule out conditions, illnesses, deficiencies and allergies. They can be used to give a more specific and customized report of your health and create a treatment plan centered around your needs.

With the right diagnostic test, you can learn about food sensitivities, determine which diet works for you based on your DNA and even figure out which nutrients you need to supplement. It’s quick and easy – diagnostic testing is done by drawing blood or swabbing your cheek for saliva. The turnaround time for results is between one and 30 days, depending on which tests are performed.

Why Do We Need Diagnostic Testing?

To combat health concerns and conditions, we have to know where they begin. This starts by checking for areas in which we are deficient, so we can more accurately understand what we can improve.

Allergies

With continued research into allergies and how profoundly they affect our day-to-day lives, more and more people are seeking out allergy panels. Through IgE and IgG antibody detection, we can gather more insight into your body and identify any food, seasonal, environmental or animal allergies you may have. We can also use new diagnostic technology such as ImmunoCAP and Foodprint to find out your reaction to certain foods.

Nutrition & Diet

Are you unsure about whether to go on a low carb, low fat or Mediterranean diet? One nutrition plan does not fit all, and our DNA plays a huge role in determining which type of macronutrient ratio our body needs.

DNAlife’s DNA Diet genotype testing can help us determine the best diet plan for you by testing gene variations that impact metabolism, absorption and storage of fats and carbohydrates. We can also assess your eating behavior to give you a better understanding of how to eat for your body type, lifestyle and goals.

Hormonal Imbalances

Salivary hormone testing is the most reliable medium for measuring hormones, one of the most integral components of our health. An imbalance in hormones can lead to conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS and fertility issues, to name a few. With salivary hormone testing, we can accurately measure the delivery of hormones to receptors in your body. This information helps us identify imbalances and treat health concerns driven by specific hormonal imbalances.

Stress

Stress, fatigue and lack of motivation are symptoms of many different medical conditions. The diagnostic testing of stress levels is crucial to diagnosing health issues and ruling out potential causes. With a multifaceted approach to analyzing stress, our stress diagnostic test assesses cortisol levels, DHEA and oxidative stress for a detailed breakdown. Our stress profile can even track your cortisol levels throughout the day to give you more detailed insight on how to combat stress and anxiety.

Which Types of Diagnostic Testing Are Available?

We offer many types of diagnostic testing at our Dubai office:

Vitamin and Nutrient Levels

A vitamin nutrition panel can be done through blood work to detect minerals, iron, calcium and other nutrients. This gives us an inside look at which nutrients you may be lacking and which nutrients you are getting enough of. Most vitamins are checked, including A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, D (total), D2, D3, E and K1. Vitamin D total profile results are available the same day; all other vitamin panel results take between seven and 15 days.

ImmunoCAP IgE Inhalant and Food Allergy Test

The ImmunoCAP allergy panel is the gold standard of IgE allergy tests that can detect and identify the presence of more than 100 of the most common environmental allergens that cause reactions from inhalation. It can also detect IgE antibodies that cause common food reactions. The ImmunoCAP IgE blood test helps doctors accurately diagnose and manage health concerns, including asthma, eczema and other allergy-related medical conditions.

Foodprint IgG Food Allergy Test

If you suspect you are allergic to certain foods but don’t know where to start, blood work can detect IgG antibodies and analyze their order of reactivity in the body as either elevated, borderline or normal. The Foodprint allergy test can detect potential IgG antibodies to over 100 different foods and give a more detailed account of allergic reactions than traditional food allergy testing. The Foodprint test takes less than an hour and is done in-clinic at our Dubai office.

DNAlife DNA Diet Report

Now you can determine which diet works best for you and discover potential health risks based on your genetics. The DNA Diet diagnostic test provides insight into how your body reacts to carbohydrates, saturated fats and exercise. This allows us to customize an optimal eating plan made just for you.

NutrEval Nutrition Panel

The nutrition profile by NutrEval assesses your body's need for minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, essential fatty acids and other select nutrients. This detailed panel can identify root causes of health issues by categorizing them as low need, borderline and high need. NutrEval helps us thoroughly detect deficiencies and put together a supplement plan to help you overcome health conditions and live a healthier life.

Salivary Hormone Testing

An imbalance of hormones can wreak havoc on the body. With a cheek swab, saliva can be analyzed to accurately determine your hormone levels. A hormone panel shows a breakdown of specific hormones such as estradiol, estrone, estriol, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and DHEA in your body. Salivary hormone testing can be done in under 30 minutes, with results that come back in three to 10 days.

Stress Panels

Stress is not only mental but physical, and it takes a toll on our health. A stress panel done with a cheek swab can determine your adrenal stress index and show the specific levels of cortisol, DHEA and total oxidative stress in your adrenal glands. An HPA stress profile with CAR, or cortisol awakening response, can also be used to determine specific cortisol levels upon waking and then throughout the day to give detailed insight into your unique stress cycle.

If you don’t see your specific concern listed above or are unsure of what tests you might need, one of our trained medical staff at Biolite Dubai can help you determine what will be most beneficial for your health.
