The Naturopathic Doctors at KIH clinic have a multitude of labs available to them through Lifelabs, Dynacare and numerous private laboratories located throughout Canada and the USA. They use these labs to help establish a proper diagnosis when more information is needed, to aid in the development of an effective treatment plan, as well as to gauge treatment success.  If you are new to the clinic then hit the Book Now button to make an initial assessment.  Return patients who have visited the clinic in the past 6 months can schedule a 30 min follow up, otherwise book a 45 min reassessment.  Read below for the various lab tests available:


This panel can help determine if your difficulty losing weight is related to blood sugar and insulin concerns, as well as liver and/or thyroid dysfunction. Price: $155


Take a deeper dive into assessing the health of your digestive system by assessing your gut, liver and gall bladder function. Food sensitivity testing is also available, along with assessing your microbial balance including good bacteria levels, parasite, chronic viral or bacterial infections. Price: $80-$550+


Take a closer look at your hormone health status. Male or female, pre-menopause or post-menopause, having balanced hormone levels is essential to your mood, libido, physical appearance and overall health status. Hormones can be evaluated via the blood, saliva or urine, and the best method depends on the specific concern(s) you are having. One of the more comprehensive tests is called the Dutch test, which measures sex and adrenal hormones, melatonin, neurotransmitter levels as well as oxidative damage.  Your Naturopathic Doctor will help you to determine which test is best suited to you following your initial assessment. Price: $135-$530

Investigate the functioning of your entire thyroid system. In addition to standard TSH levels, the actual thyroid hormones (free T3 and free T4) are also tested. In some patients, the autoantibodies and reverse T3 levels are looked at as well. Price: $59-$130


This panel includes vitamins and other factors that can influence levels of energy, focus and concentration. Normalizing values can help to offset various by-products of cognitive decline including dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Price: $200
