How are functional blood tests different from other blood tests?

Functional medicine blood tests offer a different approach from the routine tests of conventional medicine. Here are some of the advantages:

Comprehensive Assessment: Functional medicine blood tests are usually structured in a more comprehensive way. They not only measure basic biochemical values, but also assess hormonal levels, vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress parameters, immune function and other metabolic markers. In this way, it provides a more detailed insight into the health status of the individual.
Functional Assessment: While ordinary tests are usually used to diagnose diseases, functional medicine blood tests aim to assess the body’s functions. Such tests assess how organ systems work, the efficiency of nutrient absorption, toxin load, immune responses and other biological processes. Thus, it helps to identify the underlying root causes of health problems.
Individualized Approach: Functional medicine blood tests offer an individualized approach. Since each individual’s metabolic and genetic structure is different, the evaluation is based on individual-specific target ranges and the individual’s disease history, rather than general reference ranges. In this way, the changes the individual needs for optimal health and functional balance can be determined.
Early Diagnosis and Prevention: Functional medicine blood tests support early diagnosis and prevention of diseases. It is used to detect imbalances in the body and potential health problems. In this way, intervention and preventive measures can be taken before problems progress to more advanced stages.
Creating a Personal Health Plan: Functional medicine blood test results can be used to assess a person’s health status and create a personal health plan. During the treatment and recovery process, personalized strategies can be developed in accordance with the individual’s metabolic, nutritional and lifestyle needs.

Why is Mineral Balance in the Body Important?

Minerals are important elements that play various roles in metabolic processes. For example, zinc participates in more than 300 reactions for the proper functioning of metabolism. Zinc deficiency can lead to immune problems, delayed wound healing, problems with growth and pregnancy. In addition, zinc deficiency can cause hair loss, diarrhea, eczema, psoriasis, frequent infections, behavioral disorders, delayed wound healing, white spots on the nails, appetite and taste disorders. In childhood, zinc deficiency may be manifested by symptoms such as short stature, growth retardation and delayed puberty.

Many foods such as red meat, eggs, dairy products, offal, seafood, nuts, almonds, walnuts, seeds, legumes, grains, flaxseed, wheat bran, fruits and vegetables can cause mineral deficiencies despite their continuous consumption. The cause of mineral deficiencies may be inadequate intake through food, or it may be that other minerals and metals interfere with this intake.

What is the Role of Minerals for Gut Health?

Minerals are important for maintaining gut health and for the absorption of minerals and vitamins in food. Metals are common toxins that pose serious health threats worldwide and should not be absorbed from the intestines. Minerals such as selenium, magnesium, calcium and zinc play an important role in maintaining the delicate balance of the intestines. Deficiencies of these minerals have been shown in clinical studies to indicate increased intestinal permeability. However, when these deficiencies are supplemented, intestinal permeability has been observed to decrease.

Can Vitamin-Mineral Levels Be Checked in the Blood? How are Functional Tests Different?

Most minerals and metals are found inside the cell. Routine laboratory analyzes performed only in serum are not sufficient, they do not show the inside of the cell. Therefore, the evaluation of minerals and metals both inside and outside the cell provides a more precise assessment. Using various analyses and new technologies, metal and mineral levels are determined and help to clarify the individual’s specific situation.
