What is nutritional testing?
Nutritional testing is a way for the team at Restore Osteo of Colorado to diagnose nutritional deficiencies within the body, which can contribute to or worsen chronic conditions and other health complications.
The team performs testing using a sample of urine. Instead of attempting to provide your sample in an unfamiliar or uncomfortable public restroom, you provide the urine sample in the comfort of your home. Then, you ship it to a lab for testing
With a detailed urine analysis, Restore Osteo of Colorado can view the measurement of various vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in your body and use the information to interpret your overall health.
What do the results of the tests mean?
Your provider at Restore Osteo of Colorado reviews the results of your tests with you and explains how it identifies both nutrient deficiencies and nutrient imbalances.
Nutrient deficiencies and imbalances may or may not come with symptoms like headaches, fatigue, weakness, and more. Even if you get symptoms, you might not attribute them to a dietary imbalance at first. Without treatment, deficiencies and imbalances can lead to chronic health conditions like anemia, dementia, and even blindness.
Using your nutritional testing results, your provider can find out which nutrients you lack in your diet. Restore Osteo of Colorado offers a number of high-end nutritional supplements that can help restore balance in your body and lower your risk of health complications. The team also provides customized metabolic programs to optimize your health and functioning.
“They offer a variety of amenities from chiropractic to pain management, diagnostic testing, nutritional testing and more. This team genuinely has your health, continued healing and wellness at the forefront.”

Who should consider nutritional testing?
Nutritional testing can benefit you if you have a chronic condition, if you’d like to lose weight, or if you struggle with symptoms from a deficiency. The team at Restore Osteo of Colorado might recommend nutritional testing if you have:
- Headaches or migraines

- Depression or anxiety
- Hormone imbalance
- Type 2 diabetes

Your 3-6 month customized metabolic program can help improve symptoms of these conditions and stop you from developing other conditions and complications. Once your program is complete, you return for a follow-up round of nutritional testing to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need.
