Diagnostic Labs Q&A

What are diagnostic labs?

Diagnostic labs at Body & Mind Consulting include blood tests, urine testing, stool tests, or other labs that can identify potential causes of symptoms of mental health conditions. 

While these tests can’t diagnose mental health disorders, some tests can determine if electrolyte imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, thyroid disease, or other health issues contribute to bothersome symptoms.

What are the benefits of diagnostic labs?

Diagnostic labs can detect or rule out medical issues that affect your mind. For example, thyroid conditions may cause memory issues, mood changes, or depression. Nutrient deficiencies and inflammation can cause fatigue and cognitive impairments. Treating the underlying cause of your symptoms is a highly effective way to avoid future problems.

Am I a candidate for diagnostic labs?

To learn if you’re a candidate for diagnostic tests, the Body & Mind Consulting team discusses your medical history, including your medications, personal and family history of diseases, and your symptoms.

They also complete a psychiatric evaluation to assess your emotions, mood, and behaviors and determine if you have depression, anxiety, or another mental health disorder. 

Body & Mind Consulting provides brain mapping to evaluate your brain’s activity and screen for potential causes of dysfunction. 

What do diagnostic labs consist of?

Diagnostic labs typically consist of a blood test. Your provider takes a blood sample from one of your veins and sends the sample to a lab. 

A wellness screening may include the following:

  • Cholesterol panel
  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Comprehensive metabolic panel
  • Thyroid panel with thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
  • Urinalysis 
  • Kidney function panel
  • Liver function panel 
  • Iron analysis 
  • Inflammatory markers

After the Body & Mind Consulting team receives the results, they review them with you and determine which treatment is likely best. For example, taking medications can treat thyroid conditions, and dietary supplements can eliminate nutrient deficiencies.

The Body & Mind Consulting experts may refer you to another specialist if needed to manage a medical condition.

If you have no underlying medical problem but still struggle with a mental health disorder, treatments available at Body & Mind Consulting include medication management, psychotherapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), stress management, pain management, LightStim, Sonal Braincare™, and more.
