The following tests help assess possible reasons for diabetes:
Hormone testing (thyroid, DHEA, cortisol, testosterone,)—saliva, blood, or urine.
Vitamin and mineral analysis (especially magnesium, chromium, vanadium, zinc, B vitamins, and potassium)—blood.
Digestive function and microbe/parasite/candida testing—stool analysis.
Food and environmental allergies/sensitivities—blood, electrodermal.
Mercury—urine or blood.
Pesticides and other environmental toxins—urine or blood.
Your doctor makes a diagnosis of diabetes according to the symptoms you exhibit, in addition to the results of blood and urine tests. Testing will also help your doctor determine whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
