Similarly to your medical doctor, Naturopathic Doctors may recommend blood work however these are not covered by OHIP.
Lab fees are paid up front at the clinic and you are then given a requisition that you take to Life Labs who will perform the test and interpretation. Your ND will then follow up with you once she has received the results. NDs also have access to other functional labs that your medical may or may not have access to.
Below are some of the most popular and frequently requested labs:
- Dried Urine Steroids
- Hair mineral analysis
