  • General Health and Wellness Testing

For many diseases and dysfunctions prevention, early detection, and early intervention are key for achieving optimal health and wellness. General health blood testing can provide insight into the cause of many symptoms, and can help you and your doctor determine the necessary lifestyle changes and medical or therapeutic interventions needed to restore your health and to feel good again. Whether you are seeking answers to determine the cause of certain symptoms or you want a clear and comprehensive picture of your overall health, Ichor Lab’s General Health Blood Testing options can give you answers.

Ichor Health General Health And Wellness Screening

Ichor Health offers the following general blood tests to provide insight into your overall health and can determine the cause of certain worrisome symptoms:

  • Vitamin D: Vitamin D keeps our bones strong, aids in the absorption of calcium, and regulates parathyroid gland function. Deficiencies in vitamin D can result in loss of bone density and bone diseases such as rickets, osteoporosis, and osteomalacia. It can also contribute to high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, and make you more susceptible to viral infections.
  • Vitamin B12: This B vitamin is important for red blood cell and DNA production and is critical for optimal brain and nervous system functions. Deficiencies in vitamin B12 can lead to hair loss, digestive problems, headache and fatigue, mood disorders, nerve damage, and mental impairments. Undiagnosed, long term deficiencies can even lead to more serious conditions like megaloblastic anemia, dementia, and schizophrenia.
  • Heavy Metals Screen: This test screens for the presence of certain heavy metals in your blood: arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury. Exposure to the metals can come from breathing in particles, ingesting, or through skin absorption. High levels of heavy metals can cause organ damage, behavioural changes, cognitive impairment, and even permanent brain damage. 
  • Lyme Disease: This test screens for signs of infection in your blood due to Lyme disease. Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia mayonii and is transmitted through the bite of a blacklegged tick. This test is useful for people who are exhibiting symptoms of Lyme disease such as fever and/or chills, headache, fatigue and muscle aches, joint pain and inflammation, numbness and tingling in the limbs, memory and sleep disorders, and the tell-tale rash of a tick bite. It is also useful for those who are asymptomatic, but have recently removed a tick from their body.
  • Public Health Labs: Ichor Health provides general collection services for annual physicals, new Canadian physicals, pregnancy screening during first and second trimester, and STD/STI testing.

7-21 days depending on which test is ordered. This is because certain tests have to be prepared for several days before they can be run and the lab may only run the tests once a week.
