Lab testing provides me with objective data that I can use to guide my treatment plans. Naturopathic Doctors can requisition blood work similar to how your family doctor would requisition it. Lab testing is always individualized based on your presenting symptoms. Routine lab work may include: thyroid testing, blood sugars, serum hormones, liver function tests, kidney function tests, and cardiovascular risk screening.
Please note: Naturopathic Doctors can request blood tests for you, however, unlike getting a requisition from your MD, requisitions given by Naturopathic Doctors are not covered by OHIP and have to be paid for out of pocket or through extended insurance coverage.
