What lab services do you use?

At the Lamkin Clinic, one aspect that sets us apart is our extensive suite of advanced lab and diagnostic services. As a result, our services are comprehensive, productive, and effective.

We use state-of-the-art tools to help us pinpoint and get a better understanding of your medical issue, such as:

Our Patients Are Unique

The reason we have such extensive diagnostic and testing services is simple – no two patients are the same when it comes to their specific health concerns and the correct diagnostic and treatment approach.

This is also why every visit starts with an in-depth consultation. The consultation allows us to better understand and treat you as an individual with:

  • Unique symptoms
  • Underlying causes

We recommend specific lab or diagnostic tests for your specific health issues, and they may vary widely. So, here’s a closer look at just a few of the unique services and diagnostics we offer. We want to find the right diagnosis – and the ideal treatment – for your unique medical needs.

1. Bone Density Analysis

As we age, our bodies are much more prone to:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Fractures
  • Significant medical issues that begin in the bones

To address these potential problems and help our patients stay strong, we perform a Bone Density Analysis. This service helps us identify any future areas of concern long before becoming a bigger issue.

Bone mineral density (BMD) of the proximal femur is the most important measurement concerning the risk of hip fracture and other osteoporotic fractures. And our Bone Density Analysis helps us determine the risk and identify effective treatments in the future.

2. DUTCH 30-day Hormone Map™

Women have a unique set of challenges when it comes to the aging process and ensuing health issues. And this lab test provides a focused overview of estrogen balance in both the pre-and post-menopausal years.

Using a single urine sample, this test can evaluate the multiple dynamics of an individual’s sex steroid metabolism, which profoundly affects a woman’s health throughout her lifetime.

3. Thyroid Assessment

Thyroid issues can be hard to diagnose and even harder to treat.

However, this laboratory test analyzes serum levels of:

  • TSH
  • Free T4
  • Free T3
  • Reverse T3
  • Anti-TG antibodies
  • Anti-TPO antibodies

We provide a complete portrait of a patient’s peripheral thyroid function, as well as thyroid auto-immunityAs a result, this assessment can ultimately assist with a wide range of health issues connected to the thyroid – from mitigating heart disease risk to effective weight loss strategies.

4. Body Composition Analysis

For over a decade, the Lamkin Clinic has helped countless patients with weight loss. Especially patients who have struggled with ‘yo-yo’ diet plans for years. So, when it comes to your weight and the correct lifestyle changes for you, the number on the scale is just part of the story.

It’s essential to look beyond the standard body mass index (BMI) to determine where fat is distributed throughout the body. The following can have profound effects on your unique body composition.

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Aging 

Also, fat distribution is a telltale sign of a person’s risk for a wide array of common and long-term health problems, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer

This is why we may recommend a Complete Body Composition Analysis if you struggle with weight loss. The Complete Body Composition Analysis tells the full story through dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. So, our weight loss or nutrition program can be perfectly tailored to your specific needs.

5. GI MAP™

Digestive problems are common for millions of Americans, but determining an underlying cause and finding an effective long-term treatment can be challenging.

That’s why the GI-MAP evaluates:

  • Digestion
  • Absorption
  • Bacterial balance
  • Metabolism
  • Yeast
  • IBS immune status
  • Indigestion
  • Malabsorption
  • GI-related problems

We can effectively give a clearer overview of a patient’s unique digestive issues and a guideline for the most effective treatment. 

6. Cardiovascular Profile

Like many medical conditions, a person’s risk for heart disease varies widely and is dependent on a range of specific factors.

The Comprehensive Cardiovascular Profile test analyzes a patient’s blood for levels of:

  • HDL
  • LDL
  • Total cholesterol
  • Triglycerides
  • Lipoprotein (a)
  • Homocysteine
  • Apolipoprotein A1
  • Apolipoprotein B
  • Fibrinogen
  • C-reactive protein

All of these provide a detailed analysis of overall heart health, one factor at a time. 

7. Hormonal Aging Profile

Hormones are the master signals to our DNA to activate WHO WE ARE, including the following and many important functions in the human body. 

  • Triggering energy production in the cells
  • Impacting cell repair and recovery
  • Influence metabolism and body-fat distribution
  • Impact the aging of the bones and muscles

Let us perform a complete hormonal analysis to understand more about your body and what influences aging and health.

8. Micronutrient Testing

Optimizing your nutrition can be tough across the board. However, this balance gets even more difficult when it comes to nutritional supplements. Many patients may be taking too many supplements, or perhaps not enough. This can have a profound and long-lasting effect throughout the body, and not just when it comes to weight.

Genova Diagnostics micronutrient testing is a specialized assessment of your nutritional status. It helps determine and address these potential nutritional gaps. And, this test is unlike the standard serum, hair, and urine tests.

This test evaluates how your white blood cells respond to varied environments of over:

  • 32 vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Amino acids
  • Antioxidants

And as a result, individual differences in:

  • Metabolism
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Health
  • Prescription drug usage
  • Absorption rate

Also, other factors are taken into consideration to provide a detailed look at your complete nutritional requirementsKeep in mind the above list of lab and diagnostic services is just a sample of lab tests we administer. Most importantly, based on our patient’s unique conditions and specialized needs, we develop a plan that works for them.
