Pyrilinks-D Test

Using the Pyrilinks-D Test enables more active screening and management of osteoporosis and osteopenia. Pyrilinks-D is a biomarker that specifically measures bone resorption and can more accurately identify persons at risk for osteoporosis before fracture.

It is painless to collect a sample and less costly than DEXA scans. Plus, with the Pyrilinks-D test, doctors are able to monitor bone remineralization, not just collagen breakdown as with DEXA, which aids in making more salient adjustments to treatment.

Why Saliva?


In most cases, saliva testing is more accurate at detecting small differences in hormone levels vs blood testing. Specifically saliva contains higher levels of bio-available, free hormone.

We work with labs that are proven leaders in laboratory analysis and patient care. They include: US BioTek, DiagnosTechs, ZRT and Metametrix/Genova Diagnostics.

Gastrointestinal Panel

A comprehensive profile of the gastrointestinal system and an invaluable tool for aiding in the diagnosis of what ails you. Stool analysis gives insight into the day-to-day function of the gut and provides insight into a variety of diseases, including parasitic infection, bacterial overgrowth, nutrient malabsorption, inflammatory and irritable bowel disease and behavioral disorders.

This panel uses a combination of culture and molecular-based analysis to measure intestinal pH, detect the presence of H. pylori, yeast, bacteria and parasites, and monitor for inflammation and general gut function.
