Specialized Lab Testing
Back to Services
While the Jangaard Clinic focuses on finding functional deficiencies and imbalances through the Vega Bio Expert, we also offer many standard and specialized lab tests.
Lipid profiles/ VAP - This is a comprehensive blood assessment of 15 cholesterol markers to determine cardiac risk factors and Metabolic Syndrome associated with elevated cholesterol. It screens basic cholesterol markers - cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, HDL - as well as Lp(a), LDL size pattern, IDL, apoB100, VLDL, HDL and LDL variants, and Metabolic Syndrome risk.
Hormones – The Jangaard Clinic specializes in bio-identical hormone therapy. We offer blood and saliva testing as well as the Vega Bio Expert to determine endocrine imbalance, measuring levels of all the major hormones. We can provide natural thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, cortisol, or testosterone, as needed. These hormones are essential for proper metabolic function, which can improve fatigue, PMS, libido, hot flashes, bone health, pain and overall vitality.
MTHFR DNA - Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase is a common genetic variant that can cause enzymes in the body to function incorrectly. MTHF is a key enzyme in methylation and detoxification. When people have MTHFR variants they are predisposed to increased risk of heart disease, stroke, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, autism, migraines, and chronic illness. The two most common variants are 677T and 1298C, numbers which represent their location on the gene. Testing for these variants determines a patient’s risk factor and proper treatment.
Allergies - The Jangaard Clinic primarily tests for allergies through the Vega Bio Expert. Treatment may require elimination, avoidance, or homeopathic de-sensitization. We also offer blood-based allergy panels, which check for IgA (acute) and IgG (delayed) allergic responses. Determining allergens, and avoiding them, reduces overall inflammation throughout the body, which improves energy, digestion, joint pain and mental clarity.
