Nutritional Assessment

Because each of our metabolic biochemical pathways is different, the nutrient requirements for one person are often different than the requirements of another. Even if you eat a balanced diet, exercise and take a multi-vitamin, you may still be deficient in certain key biological components.

MultiCare MedSpa offers a means to scientifically assess the nutritional status of selected vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. With this simple blood test, deficiencies that often go undiagnosed with routine testing are determined. This allows us to customize a specific supplement and lifestyle program tailored to restore your unique biochemical balance. By identifying and correcting micronutrient deficiencies, you are taking an important step toward long-term maintenance of optimal health.

Although cholesterol has historically been used as the standard indicator for cardiovascular disease, it is actually the lipoprotein particles that carry the cholesterol throughout the body that are responsible for key steps in plaque production and the resulting development of cardiovascular disease. MultiCare MedSpa can accurately assess your risk for heart disease by mapping specific genes which are predictive of early heart disease and plaque development. We measure the size, density and number of your LDL and HDL particles along with important inflammatory markers and emerging risk factors. These parameters are important in giving a complete assessment of overall cardiovascular risk.

This procedure is available at our Gig Harbor location.
