blood testing pathology

Many of our clients come to see a nutritionist or dietitian because they’ve been to the doctor, had a blood test and have been told that something is not right. Maybe cholesterol is high or iron levels are low.

We love to help our clients make dietary changes to improve these blood biochemistry measures. But, without retesting, it’s hard to know if these dietary changes are making any difference. Clients have to make another expensive doctors appointment just to get a referral for a retest of cholesterol, blood sugars or Vitamin B12.

Now you can get blood test results without a GP.

The Healthy Eating Hub is excited to offer client referrals for blood and pathology tests, directly from their nutritionist or dietitian, through Laverty Pathology.

Now you can learn and apply evidenced-based nutrition strategies, and get accurate biochemical feedback, all in the one place!
