Functional Testing

Replan Living uses functional testing to investigate and determine underlying and contributing causes of health imbalances and health conditions. Functional tests are laboratory tests that address the functions of the various systems of the body. The tests are designed to determine what metabolic and biochemical imbalances exist that could determine the potential for health as well as for possible health conditions.

Testing can cover areas including liver detoxification pathways, heavy metals and toxin overload, adrenal health, red blood cell health, reproductive hormone health, digestive health, vitamin and mineral status, presence of pathogens & parasites, absorption of nutrients, thyroid health, immune health, mould and much more.

Tests are designed to test for functionality, not pathology and are therefore not diagnostic.

The tests are used to determine what can be treated nutritionally and what imbalances are present upon which to develop customised nutrition and lifestyle programs.

Functional tests use saliva, urine, stool and blood to provide the information to improve health status.

At the bottom of this page, please find blood test tables which help to guide you through the full
selection of serum tests available. Each table clearly highlights the associated test names &
markers (e.g Thyroid tests) that are included in each of those tests. The tests are niched down into
tables to guide you.

Introductory are baseline tests, covering the basic biomarkers
Thyroid have all the baseline markers PLUS highlight all the available thyroid tests with key
markers linked to autoimmune function
Sex Hormones & Fertility tests are best if you are looking to conceive, have fertility questions or
are querying your sex hormone status (menopausal & andropausal status)
Lifestyle tests cover in-depth markers linked to brain health, cardiovascular function, fitness &
metabolic function

When choosing your test, please take into consideration all factors you wish to consider that
relate to any presenting symptoms you may have.

When you purchase packages of 6 or more months with me, I go over all tests & advise which one
would be of most benefit, based on your presenting symptoms.

*Please be advised that if you are purchasing a test for a one-off Functional Blood Consultation, this is ultimately your
choice. No advice is given during the consult, only your results & what this means for your overall health at this moment

WHY CHOOSE FUNCTIONAL TESTING?

  1. To evaluate body system function vs. pathology
  2. Test to see how the body is functioning from a more optimal perspective
  3. Tests for the underlying root of the health issue or underlying imbalances that keep a person experiencing symptoms that are not resolving.
  4. Enables the bespoke creation of a nutrition and lifestyle program that optimises health potential.
  5. Highlights metabolic cycles before they become problematic
  6. Allows the Nutritional Therapy practitioner to identify more objectively what is contributing to health imbalances.
  7. The testing may provide a sense of relief for the person who has been told that there is nothing wrong with them, even if they are experiencing symptoms.

Functional Blood Testing

Blood testing, primarily serum testing, is a valuable tool for determining heart health, thyroid health, immune status, inflammation, blood sugar management, food allergies and sensitivities, iron status, blood health and nutrient absorption. There are scientifically determined functional or optimum health ranges that guide us in choosing diets, lifestyle and nutritional support. The serum readings may be outside of the optimum health ranges, but still within the medical ranges. When they are outside of the optimum health ranges, then a functional imbalance is present. True prevention of further health issues can occur if changes can be made that impact healthy shifts of function to a more optimum reading.

Replan Living provides a comprehensive functional analysis of standard blood chemistry panels. Our goal is to assess for any nutritional imbalances so that we can personalise your nutrition program to move you towards optimal health.

Salivary Testing

Saliva is particularly effective for testing the status of adrenal and reproductive hormones. Saliva contains the free fraction state of adrenal and reproductive hormones which reflect the tissue levels of these hormones. Testing these hormones in blood only reflects what is only bound up in a protein carrier the blood. In order for the cells to receive the action of the hormones, the protein carrier is released and the hormones are then “freed” to act upon the hormone receptors on the cells. Saliva reflects what the tissues are actually receiving.

Replan Living can assess salivary samples to assess adrenal & reproductive health.

Gastrointestinal Health

The primary stool test is for digestive health. The laboratory looks for the amount and types of healthy bacteria, absorption of nutrients and the presence of pathogens, parasites & ova. Replan Living can assess stool samples to assist in creating optimal gastrointestinal health.

Urinalysis

Urine is a good medium for testing various hormones and their metabolites. The metabolites are evident if there are blockages in the hormone pathways of detoxification, break down and excretion. Urine, also, is a good medium for discovering the metabolites that reflect nutrient imbalances and deficiencies such as the B vitamins, CoQ10, minerals, amino acids and more.

Replan Living offers urinalysis services including DUTCH & OAT testing.

Food Sensitivity Testing

The primary stool test is for digestive health. The laboratory looks for the amount and types of healthy bacteria, absorption of nutrients and the presence of pathogens, parasites & ova. Replan Living can assess stool samples to assist in creating optimal gastrointestinal health.

Functional Blood Tests

Below you will find a detailed table highlighting all of the blood tests on offer with Replan Living. Each test is different & indicates the biomarkers that are covered for that particular one. Take your time to read through these to see which tests would be of most benefit for you.

I always begin with a consultation & from here we can look at what test would be of most benefit to you going forward. The introductory test at £149 is included in the 6, 9 & 12 month Re:Desire package as standard. 

There are several tests you can consider, depending on what you are looking to gain additional understanding on. Each test varies in price; introductory level testing covers a great range of biomarkers (minimum 78) however these may not be particularly helpful to you, based on the signs & symptoms you present with. During the consultation, I may suggest another test that would be more beneficial to you – it is entirely up to you if you wish to upgrade your test. Any difference is paid at the end of the consultation when I order your blood tests to be sent to your home.

NOTE – I offer phlebotomy services covering Glasgow & West Central Scotland. If you would like to book these, please email for more details.
