The Micronutrient blood test also includes a test I have been waiting for!


As I have written, I plan on getting a micronutrient blood test next week. It takes about a month to receive the results, though. Instead of checking the patient's section for information about the test, I checked the physician's section. I was looking for the specific nutrients the test covers, which I will list below. The last item listed is the IMMUNE RESPONSE SCORE. This is exactly what I was trying to get an immunologist to look into! "It evaluates a person’s cell-mediated immune system performance. Specifically, it measures T-cell lymphocyte proliferation. Since immune function is a systemic measure of general health, a higher score is desired since it means a person can respond efficiently not only to exogenous threats such as pathogens or allergens, but also to endogenous threats like tumors. The immune system, comprised of both cell-mediated (Th1) and humoral (Th2) components, when balanced and performing optimally, affords us critical protection and promotes health and wellness. (I read that Th1 and Th2 levels somehow had to do with AIDS patients getting infections on lips).

Micronutrient deficiencies will undermine a person’s immune function, and thus lower the immune response score. Since the immune system is dependent on the intracellular availability of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, correcting specific micronutrient deficiencies typically raises the immune response score and contributes to clinical benefits, such as reduced infections and may assist in achieving Th1/Th2 balance."
