Immune System Testing

The role of the immune system—a collection of structures and processes within the body—is to protect against disease or other potentially damaging foreign bodies. When functioning properly, the immune system identifies a variety of threats, including viruses, bacteria, and parasites, and distinguishes them from the body’s own healthy tissue. If your immune system is not functioning, you may have an autoimmune disorder. Evaluating the health and functionality of the immune system at baseline will provide your provider with important information about short and long-term treatment imperatives that will aid in your recovery.
