Laboratory Testing

Dr. Gangemi utilizes many different types of laboratory testing available today. These range from the standard “medical” tests (usually involving blood drawn), to various other tests that not only measure disease/pathology, but functional problems, so an issue can be addressed before it gets worse, or even occurs. Below are some labs utilized in the office; click on the lab to go to their website to learn more about the tests each offers.

  • Diagnos-Techs – Salivary-based hormone testing (male & female) as well as comprehensive stool analysis tests to measure for the presence of pathogens, food sensitivities, inflammation, and other markers
  • Metametrix – Metabolic, toxicant, and nutritional testing. Breast cancer risk assessment test is often very informative as well as the “blood spot” tests to measure fatty acid profiles
  • Genova Diagnostics – (formerly Great Smokies Lab) – Genova offers many tests but I primarily use them for their unique genetic tests to measure risk factors for cardiovascular issues, immune problems, digestive complications, bone health, and other systems
  • Doctor’s Data – Many tests available from this lab. I like their drinking water analysis test as well as their urine toxic metal test, which I will often do when chelating a patient for heavy metals
  • Sabre Science – Sabre offers salivary hormone and neurotransmitter testing
  • NeuroScience – Neurotransmitter testing as well as unique immune system testing. This lab offers many different saliva, urine, and blood tests to measure too much to list here
  • EnteroLab – Gluten sensitivity & celiac screening
  • Esoterix (formerly Hemex) – Coagulation to Oncology testing and everything in-between. Over 2,500 testing assays
  • IGenX – This lab’s specialty is Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases
  • Cryex – New lab specializing in SALIVA GLUTEN sensitivity testing as well as many IgG, IgA, IgM antibodies (serum)

Additionally, here’s an interesting test called the Visual Contrast Sensitivity Test. It’s a $15 test that you can do right at home from your computer and is said to be highly effective in determining if you have biotoxins – whether from a toxic building, infection, or contaminant exposure.

    I have ulcerative colitis, moderate to severe and my doctor wants me to start Remicade or Humera to induce remission. Right now I have bowel movements with blood, but not more than three or four a day, some proctitis with Asacol and Prednisone. This is year four, second flare since diagnosis. I have read about Digestacure. Any comments on that product?
