Understanding Lab Diagnostics in Clinical Practice CEULD
Instructor: Diana Visocchi ND

As a holistic nutrition graduate, you have the knowledge to develop powerful protocols based on complex diet and lifestyle assessments.  However, you will encounter situations where a solid understanding of main stream medical evaluations, such as laboratory testing, will be necessary.  As natural health care practitioners, you also need to learn how to interact and share information with other medical practitioners.  This course is designed to teach you to interpret common laboratory tests and communicate with other practitioners to ensure your client receives the best possible care.

This course will cover the basics of salivary, urine and blood testing.  Also discussed will be tests specific for liver, gastric and renal functioning.  Testing for fertility and pregnancy, anemias, lipid disorders, diabetes mellitus, and cancer diagnosis will also be included.
