When overdone or done unnecessarily, functional health tests can impact patients financially and emotionally. Take Jane—a patient at our clinic who spent over $7,000 in total on treatment with a different doctor only to develop an eating disorder and experience worsening symptoms. In this episode, I break down evidence that explains why adrenal, glucose breath, micronutrient, gut dysbiosis, and food allergy tests didn’t help her case—and why they aren’t always necessary to do for treatment.
