All of the following labs are coupled with a nutritional consult with one of our integrative nutritionists to make sure you understand the results of each test.


Comprehensive Bloodwork

When you get labs drawn at an annual physical, you typically will get basic bloodwork looking at your blood count, lipids, fasting glucose, and perhaps a Vitamin D level for good measure. This basic panel doesn’t provide a complete picture, so we’ve put together a panel that is comprehensive and looks not just at one marker of your nutritional health, but the full panel to get a more complete and personalized picture.

This lab tests the following markers:

  • Inflammation (hs-CRP, Homocysteine, PLAC, ox-LDL, MPO)
  • Complete thyroid panel (TSH, Free and Total T3 and T4, Anti-TPO antibodies, Anti-TG antibodies, RT3)
  • Heart health and lipid markers (NT-proNBP, sdLDL, Lp(a), Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides, apolipoproteins Apo A-1 and Apo B)
  • Glycemic and insulin control (Glucose, HbA1c, GSP, Insulin, Adiponectin)
  • Complete Blood Count with differential, Platelets and Reticulocytes
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
  • Immunity markers (total IgG, total IgM)
  • Uric acid
  • GGT
  • Phosphate
  • Iron panel (Iron, Ferritin, Transferrin, TIBC, UIBC)
  • Hormone panel (Estradiol, FSH, DHEA-S, LH, SHBG, Total Testosterone, Free Testosterone, Albumin, Progesterone, Parathyroid hormone, Prolactin, DHT, Pregnenolone, Estrone)

SportFuel will arrange to have a requisition sent to you that you will use to get your lab drawn at a local lab, and in some states, a mobile phlebotomist can be arranged for an additional charge. (Please let us know if you’re interested in this option.) After filling out brief forms and completing your draw, you’ll meet virtually with a SportFuel nutritionist to review your lab results and recommended next steps.


Food Sensitivity Testing

If you’ve ever wondered if certain foods you are eating might be causing stress to your body, this is a great option to finally get some answers. Some people, when eating foods they are sensitive to, get digestive stress that is easy to correlate with a particular food. Other times, it’s not so easy to pinpoint because the reactions are delayed or are not digestive in nature. Some people may get brain fog, joint pain, headaches, low energy, poor recovery, skin rashes, anxiety, or a host of other delayed responses relating to the food and/or added chemicals in the food.

Below we offer 2 types of food sensitivity testing: basic or comprehensive. For either test you choose, SportFuel will set you up with a requisition and send a kit via the mail so that you may get your blood drawn in a local lab, and in some states, a mobile phlebotomist can be arranged for an additional charge. (Please let us know if you’re interested in this option.) After filling out brief forms and completing your draw, you’ll meet virtually with a SportFuel nutritionist to review your lab results and recommended next steps.

1: Basic Sensitivity Test

(4 Zoomers + Food Sensitivity Profile 1 or 2)

This test includes:

  • Wheat Zoomer plus 3 additional Zoomers of your choice (dairy, soy, corn, nuts, peanuts, seafood, mammalian milk, grain, or lectins)
  • Either the Food Sensitivity Profile 1 or Profile 2 panel

What is a Zoomer?

Per Vibrant America Lab, “The Wheat Zoomer aids in the specific recognition of antibodies to wheat peptides – including gluten and non-gluten components, along with antibodies that indicate the presence of intestinal permeability. It is also a highly sensitive peptide-based array designed to detect autoimmune reactions to gluten.” We always include the Wheat Zoomer because it includes various markers for intestinal barrier function and permeability.

2: Comprehensive Food Sensitivity

(4 Zoomers, Food Sensitivity Profiles 1 & 2, Additives)

Testing include:


Micronutrient Panel

Your “macronutrients” are the carbohydrates, proteins and fats that you consume, while your micronutrients are the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and other nutrients that support all aspects of your health and performance. Whether you have a specific health challenge you’re looking to address or just want to maximize your potential, knowing where your micronutrients stand can benefit greatly.

SportFuel will create a requisition for you to get your lab drawn in a local lab, and in some states, a mobile phlebotomist can be arranged for an additional charge. (Please let us know if you’re interested in this option.) After filling out brief forms and completing your draw, you’ll meet virtually with a SportFuel nutritionist to review your lab results and recommended next steps.


Intestinal Health Stool Test (Gut Zoomer)

You may have heard of your microbiome, which includes all the microbes (tiny species invisible to the eye) that reside in your body, the majority of which are in your intestines. The balance of these microbes is pertinent to your immunity, weight balance, mood, digestion, and overall health and wellness, and an imbalance can contribute to an array of health symptoms. This 1-time stool collection will test not only the balance of your beneficial bacteria, but also pathogenic bacteria such as H.pylori, salmonella, and E.coli, fungi such as candida, parasites, and viruses. 

This test is fortunately done from the comfort of your home. After filling out brief forms, SportFuel will send a stool collection kit (yes, this means poop) with some special instructions, if necessary. Once you’ve completed your kit, you’ll mail it back to the lab in the provided pre-labeled packet. You’ll then receive your full lab report and schedule an e-meeting with a SportFuel nutritionist to review your results and recommended next steps.
