What is micronutrient testing?
Learning what your body is lacking in micronutrients can be a game-changer for your health. At Dr. Avi Ishaaya Centers in Los Angeles, CA, we can test your blood to discover what micronutrient deficiencies you have right now. Even if you feel healthy today, your dietary and nutritional needs do play a role in your health and wellness. Over time, you may see symptoms like sleepiness during the day, lackluster skin, hair loss, headaches, brittle nails. muscle cramps, moodiness, and more when your body is missing key micronutrients. Our board-certified physician in pulmonary, sleep, internal, and geriatric medicine, Dr. Abraham "Avi" Ishaaya, can diagnose and treat patients for specific micronutrient deficiencies.
Your external, aesthetics may benefit from premium micronutrient levels, but we also want you to improve your longevity and how well your body functions from through your diet. Even though you may eat a balanced diet, exercise, and have great sleep habits, it is always a good idea to know what you can do to live your healthiest life. Because we all metabolize our micronutrients differently, our needs are unique. By looking at the bigger picture of your health with micronutrient testing, you can tweak how well your body functions at that cellular level with Dr. Ishaaya's guidance and custom treatment plan to supplement your deficiencies or excesses. You can take better care of yourself if you know how well your body handles your intake of vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and metabolites. Let's take a look at your micronutrient levels in a private appointment at our office in Los Angeles, CA at your earliest convenience.
"I love Dr.Ashaaya. I have been a patient with Dr. Ashaaya for 1 year now and my experience with him is always phenomenal.He always listen to me and will do the necessary test to get to the bottom of the issue. His office is far from my house so sometimes when I have a question regarding my health issue, I call his office and he calls me back and makes sure everything is going well and guides me in the right direction. I highly recommend him."- A.K. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2020
"I believe Dr. Ishaaya has two offices at the location, and I saw him this morning for a pre-employment physical. I was very impressed with how organized the entire experience was. Dr. Ishaaya was very personable and understanding that my blood pressure always goes up when I go to the doctor (& he allowed me to have it retested after a few minutes. I want to especially acknowledge the young man who was the medical assistant and radiology tech in the office. He was extremely professional. As Registered Nurse, I would encourage anyone to feel comfortable making an appointment to see Dr. Ishaaya. I definitely know a good Doctor when I see one"- R.P. / Yelp / Apr 03, 2020

"Dr. Ishaaya was so terrific and knowledgeable along with his very friendly staff. I recommend them highly. I was able to get a allergy test, a breathing test and a chest x-ray, and then the results with the Dr. in a very short amount of time. It was seamless and I really appreciated not having to make 4 different appointments to get this all done. I would highly recommend Dr. Ishaaya to everyone!!"- I.P. / Google / Mar 13, 2020

Why Should We Test?
Having a baseline of what micronutrients your body is using effectively or not is a great way to fine-tune your diet, supplements, and other interventions for optimal health. You may feel like you are in tip-top shape and still qualify for this testing because you may have hidden deficiencies that may manifest as symptoms in the future. You make a great candidate for micronutrient testing if you:
- Would like to have a better understanding of your health
- Want to make better medical decisions based on what your body needs – no guessing
- Have a hormonal imbalance
- Have unexplainable symptoms (pain, inflammation, weight fluctuations, low immune function, and more)
- Never feel well-rested even after many hours of sleep
- Have felt a decline in your mental health
- See more signs of aging (hair loss, loss of skin volume, poor skin tone and texture, wrinkles, and more)
- Take a multivitamin and see or feel no difference in your wellness
These reasons make a case for you to be considered for micronutrient testing, Even if you take really great care of your body and mind, you can still be micronutrient deficient.
