Unlike any other nutritional assessments, NutrEval FMV® provides a framework of core nutrients in 5 key areas: Antioxidants, B Vitamins, Digestive Support, Essential Fatty Acids, and Minerals. In this test, the Amino Acids are measured in a convenient first-morning urine collection. (Also see NutrEval® Plasma)

Introducing NutrEval® with Genomics

The Nutritional Test You Rely On Just Got Better!

We are excited to announce that we will now be offering select genomics testing (SNPs) on our most complete nutritional profiles: NutrEval FMV amino acids and NutrEval Plasma amino acids.

Assessment of these select genomic markers in conjunction with the NutrEval supports broadened clinical insight and enhanced personalization of therapeutics in an array of patient conditions such as depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, cardiometabolic syndrome, inflammatory conditions, and chronic pain syndromes.

NutrEval kit requisitions will now include the option for ordering one or more of the following SNPs:

NutrEval with Genomics

  • MTHFR
  • COMT
  • TNF-α
  • APOE

 

Need for Nutritional Testing

Many patients experience chronic illnesses because of nutritional deficiencies. NutrEval® offers nutritional recommendations based on a patient’s individual test results. Clinicians commonly use such testing to determine the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of chronic conditions such as:

  • Mood disorder
    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Sleep disturbance
  • Fibromyalgia or Fatigue
  • Optimized health and sports fitness

 

An Advanced Diagnostic Tool

Genova designed the NutrEval® profile to give physicians a better understanding of patients’ nutritional deficiencies. By combining testing in 5 key areas of core nutrients, physicians are offered a depth of insight into a patient’s overall nutritional status unrivaled in the laboratory industry. Genova diagnostics has created an enhanced report that synthesizes the results of more than 100 individual biomarkers into one, easy-to-interpret overview, as well as a personalized patient supplementation schedule.

 

The NutrEval® Profile includes:

  • Metabolic Analysis Profile
    Metabolic Analysis assessment provides information on 45 key organic acids. These biomarkers are grouped into easy-to-understand categories, and provide insight for functional support in the areas of: malabsorption & dysbiosis; cellular energy & mitochondrial metabolism; neurotransmitter metabolism; vitamin deficiencies; and toxin exposure & detoxification need.
  • Amino Acids Analysis
    Amino Acids analysis features either plasma (37 total) or urine (41 total) amino acids. This assesses nutritionally essential and non-essential amino acids, as well as intermediary metabolites that augment an understanding of B vitamin need, and need for support of protein digestion & absorption.
  • Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis
    Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis provides a high level overview of the balance of various families of fatty acids in relation to each other: Omega 3, 6 and 9 Fatty Acids; Saturated Fatty Acids; and Monounsaturated Omega 7 and Trans Fats. It also provides key ratios for understanding cardiovascular risk, including the Omega 3 Index.
  • Elemental Analysis, Packed Eyrthrocytes
    Elemental Profiles provide information in two categories: Nutrient Elements which evaluates intracellular nutrient status, and Toxic Elements which evaluate short-term toxic element exposure.
  • Oxidative Stress
    Oxidative Stress biomarkers highlight the body’s current state of oxidative stress and reserve capacity. Markers of oxidative injury assess cell membrane (lipid peroxides) and DNA (8-hydroxydeguanosine/8-OHdG) damage, while direct measurement of glutathione and CoQ10 provide insight into antioxidant reserve available to counter free-radical impact. Additional markers are available in our Oxidative Stress 2.0 profile.
