Metabolimix+ URINE First Morning Void
(Not Available in NY)
Metabolix+ FMV™ nutritional test helps to give an understanding of individual diet and supplementation needs, and offers a personalized functional nutrition assessment covering Antioxidants, B Vitamins, Digestive Support, and Minerals.
Nutritional deficiencies can be a factor of many complex chronic conditions, and Matabolix+ FMV® utilizes an easy first-morning urine collection (called a first morning void) to provide nutritional recommendations based on a patient’s individual nutritional test results. Clinicians commonly use such nutritional testing to determine the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of chronic conditions.
Symptoms and chronic conditions related to nutritional deficiencies:
- Mood disorders
- Sleep disturbance
- Optimized health and sports fitness
Using an easy-to-collect, first-morning urine sample, the Metabolix+ FMV® nutritional test gives physicians a better understanding of patients’ diet and nutritional deficiencies. By combining testing in 4 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 nutritional test report that synthesizes the results of nearly 80 individual biomarkers into one, easy-to-interpret overview, as well as a personalized patient supplementation schedule.
The Matabolix+ FMV® Nutritional Test Covers:
- Metabolic Analysis Profile: 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: 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.
- 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.
