Specialized to assess issues with fertility, weight, sleep, adrenal stress and cardio health.
Same as the Diurnal Cortisol 4x Stress test, which measures a complete daily cortisol cycle, plus DHEA-S which is also an indicator of adrenal health. Low DHEA-S can lead to chronic fatigue and weight gain. High DHEA-S levels can promote androgen (male) features in women, and is an indicator of adrenal tumors and PCOS.
The adrenal gland produces the hormone cortisol in response to stress. Prolonged high cortisol production can lead to chronic fatigue, "adrenal burnout" and other health problems. This test samples cortisol levels at 4 times throughout a day, revealing a complete daily cycle.
The test includes 6 collections of cortisol throughout the day. To capture this response, three – rather than one – morning saliva collections are needed to properly chart the diurnal cortisol curve within 60 minutes of awakening.
Reveals whether hormones are your hidden barrier to restful sleep. Measures both cortisol and melatonin at 4 times throughout a day – providing an accurate 24-hour sleep-wake pattern evaluation.
Identifies specific hormone imbalances associated with excess weight gain and obesity, including hypothyroidism. Aids in early detection of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and certain heart conditions. Test also incudes adrenal and sex hormones as well as vitamin D and TSH.
Our most complete test to evaluate hormonally-based weight issues including thyroid levels and vascular system health tests.
Screens for risk factors of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Test includes insulin glucose, cholesterol, high-sensitivity CRP and triglycerides. Appropriate for both children and adults.
