PATHOLOGY & FUNCTIONAL TESTING
Testing may be helpful in working out the whole picture when it comes to your health and your treatment.
I'll assess if there's a need for you to undertake pathology and/or functional testing and explain to you the reasons for suggesting any testing.
If tests are arranged through me I will receive the results from the laboratory. I review the results in conjunction with the information you have provided me about your condition. I will explain the test results in an appointment.
Testing is not compulsory and treatment usually can be provided without testing being carried out.
Tests are performed in privately-owned independent testing laboratories. Testing is not covered under Medicare. Payment for the testing is arranged directly with the laboratories and does not include my consultation fees.
TYPES OF TESTS
Some of the test that can be arranged, include the following. This is not an exhaustive list:
Hydrogen/Methane Breath Tests (SIBO)
Hormone testing - thyroid / adrenal / female /male
If you have a particular test in mind, please let me know and I'll look into it for you.
