An Introduction to Nutritional Screening Tests

Nutritional Screening Tests may be used to gain more insight into your health status by

  • Evaluating how the physiology of your body is functioning
  • Assessing your nutritional status
  • Identifying factors contributing to health issues

Test results and analysis may assist in developing a more targeted approach to supporting your health.

A test may involve a blood, saliva, urine or stool sample.

Dependant on the style of test you may be able to collect the sample at home or you may be asked to attend a health clinic to provide samples.

Some tests will require interpretation by a qualified nutritionist.

If you would like advice on which nutritional test(s) would be most appropriate for you please BOOK A CALL with us, we are happy to advise.
