Comparison shop other websites for these two separate ZRT LAB Product Names:
"Comprehensive Female\Male Profile I"
• 5 Tests (from Saliva: E2, Pg, T, DS, Cx4)
• 4 Tests (from Blood Spot: TSH, fT3, fT4, TPO)
"Vitamin D, 25-OH, Total"
• 1 Test (from Blood Spot: independently monitoring both Vitamin D2 and D3 status by LC-MS/MS)
That's a total of 10 tests contained in one comprehensive package.
We asked ZRT Lab to take their two most popular hormone test kits and combine them into one package, called Canary Club AdvancedPlus.
Our Canary Club AdvancedPlus provides a comprehensive assessment of your thyroid, reproductive and adrenal hormones plus your Vitamin D levels. Hormonal symptoms often overlap with one another so a full evaluation of your overall hormonal profile is critical in diagnosing the core issues.
The Adrenal gland helps the body regulate its stress response by synthesizing corticosteroids and catecholamines, including cortisol and adrenaline. The reproductive glands (testes and ovaries) produce hormones (testosterone and estrogen) that are critical to regulating mood, energy levels, and metabolism.
Vitamin D is a critical component in maintaining bone density, which diminishes as we age.
Symptoms of Hormone and Vitamin D Dysfunction
Bones density loss
Weight gain or loss
Dry/brittle hair and nails
Muscle and joint aches and pains
High blood pressure
