Functional Biology

Nutritional and functional medicine aims to optimise cell, tissue and organ function. It is essential for the health of patients, both in terms of preventative and curative measures. SYNLAB has developed sophisticated nutritional analyses for evaluating health. These tests are the basis of a predictive, preventative and personalised form of medicine which aims at achieving optimal health for the patient. SYNLAB Heppignies, situated near Charleroi, is the functional and nutritional centre of excellence of the SYNLAB group.

Efficient tools

The nutritional and functional test result protocols offer a graphic representation of the parameters studied and an interpretation of the results. Our technicians implement new analyses and perform a technical validation of the results under the supervision of expert biologists who validate them medically and provide scientific support to help interpret complex results. A scientific committee is constantly setting up new profiles, based on the most recent publications and clinical studies in nutrition, to improve patients’ lives.

Only a doctor will be able to thoroughly interpret the information related to the following assessments.
