Weight Management (4) Profiles

Weight Management Profile
Weight Management Profile plus THYROID
Weight Management Profile plus CARDIO
Weight Management Profile plus THYROID & CARDIO

We now offer the Weight Management Profile, a "combo kit" that tests hormones obtained from samples you supply from your saliva, and from a finger-prick blood spot.

The Weight Management Profile allows identification of specific hormone imbalances associated with excess weight gain and obesity, vitamin D deficiency, and hypothroidism. There are four versions of the Weight Management Profile. All four Profiles are designed to test key areas

The Four Weight Management Profiles Start with the Same Core Tests

The four Weight Management Profiles contain the same core hormone tests for determining

  • hormonal imbalances that prevent you from sustaining a healthy target weight, 
  • determine factors that contribute to increases in weight and weight retention,
  • and hormones directly contributing to obesity. 

In addition, the four hormone Weight Management Profiles provide a viable assessment for screening the potential risk for specific health conditions in the future. When used for screening, these powerful early indicators can give you substantial advance notice to possibly avert

  • Insulin Resistance,
  • Metabolic Syndrome,
  • Diabetes,
  • and certain heart conditions.

The hormone test results of the Weight Management Profiles provide a comprehensive report designed to help you and your health-care practitioner to:

  • agree to effective treatments to rebalance hormone levels, resulting in easier management of weight
  • address vitamin D and thyroid deficiencies
  • reduce overall risk for metabolic syndrome
  • potentially avoid the onset of type 2 diabetes


How is this "Weight Management" Different from Any Other?

These hormone test profiles are not for everyone.  It is for those that have a hormone imbalance.  When you have a hormone imbalance, it will be a challenge to get the weight under your control.  And once you do, it is a constant challenge to maintain it.  You may have tried every possible diet, and you might have had success for a period of time.

The missing link to weight control for those with hormone imbalance is knowing that it hasn't been you, it has been your hormones creating conditions outside of your control. Not everyone knows that hormones play a major factor in regulating weight, metabolism, and when and where the body stores fat. Armed with this information, your success can be achieved because you are in a position to start taking restorative measures that address the root cause of your problems.  A simple, at-home test can now identify whether weight management efforts are silently being sabotaged. 

Easy-to-Use Hormone Test Kits & Fast Turn-Around

These hormone test kit profiles are easy-to-use for "at-home" collection of samples. You mail your collected samples to ZRT Lab using the enclosed pre-addressed and pre-paid mailing pouch.

Within 3-5 business days from the time you return the kit to the lab, you can view your diagnostic hormone test results online at the ZRT Lab website using the sign-on information they email to you directly. Please look for the email in your inbox, or spam folder.

Why Hormone Testing Can Be the Help You Need to Get Control of Your Weight

While diet and exercise play an important role, hormones can also have a significant impact on weight management.

Do you regularly have any of these conditions that you review with your health-care provider?

  • Weight gain with belly fat
  • Weight gain in the hips + thighs
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • High Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Loss of lean muscle
  • Increased appetite and cravings

The Hormone Weight Gain Connection

Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat. 

The following hormone imbalances are key contributors to weight gain:

estrogen dominance — estrogen/progesterone imbalance leads to weight gain in hips, thighs; water retention; low thyroid/metabolism

Androgen Deficiency — testosterone/DHEA imbalance leads to decreased lean muscle, low metabolic rate, with increases in body fat and lowered metabolic rate

Vitamin D3 Deficiency — leads to hyperinsulinemia; visceral fat

Thyroid Deficiency — elevated TSH is indicative of hypothyroidism, low metabolic rate, stalled weight loss, obesity

Insulin Resistance — elevated fasting insulin indicates insulin resistance, a precursor of metabolic syndrome. Increased appetite, sugar cravings, belly fat; inhibits thyroid and metabolism; combined with elevated HbA1c is predictive of type 2 diabetes
