TSH helps regulate the thyroid gland. It is produced by the pituitary gland in response to thyroid hormone levels in the bloodstream. A high level of TSH means not enough thyroid hormone production, and low TSH indicates too much thyroid activity.
This pituitary hormone affects ovulation, sperm count, PCOS, irregular/absent menstrual periods and infertility. It is a strong indicator for menopause in women and andropause in men.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is a marker for menopause onset in women, and is also useful for monitoring androgen therapy progress in men.
An established marker of inflammation, hs-CRP can be a major indicator of cardiovascular disease, especially if it is present in arterial walls. High levels are associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack and stroke.
Thyroxine (T4) is the main hormone produced by the thyroid. A Total T4 test measures the overall level of T4 output by the thyroid gland.
Free T4 affects tissue function in the body, while bound T4 does not. This test is often used in congunction with TSH testing to measure the extent of hyper- or hypothyroidism.
Used to evaluate the status of androgen (male) hormones. With men, the issue of concern is testosterone deficiency. In women the concern is excess testosterone production.
Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a variety of problems including hypertension, joint pain, muscle weakness and even heart disease and stroke. This test measures both the biologically active (D3) and supplemented (D2) forms.
Up to 10% of the population in the U.S. has iodine deficiency. Iodine is essential in healthy thyroid hormone production, brain function, breast tissue, fetal development and more.
Measures the essential nutrients iodine, selenium, lithium and bromine, plus the toxic heavy metals arsenic, cadmium, and mercury. This test does NOT include: zinc, copper, magnesium or lead. Dried urine only (no blood spot).
A saliva test designed to measure the levels of the hormone cortisol, taken four times in a 24-hour period (morning, noon, evening, and nighttime). 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.
Tests the 3 major sex hormones estradiol, progesterone and testosterone, plus the adrenal hormones DHEA-S and cortisol (1x).
The best overall assessment for your thyroid. Combines the four most clinically useful thyroid function tests, giving a more thorough assessment compared with monitoring TSH alone. Measures fT4, fT3, TSH, TPO.
Profile Assesses risks associated with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Tests in this profile include: Insulin, High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, Total Cholesterol, HDL and LDL Cholesterol, Hemoglobin A1c, and Triglycerides. (Blood Spot Test)
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.
Tests the 3 major sex hormones estradiol (E2), progesterone and testosterone. Plus adrenal hormones DHEA-S and diurnal cortisol (4x), showing your full daily cortisol cycle.
Comprehensive test for thyroid, adrenal and reproductive hormones. 12 tests - same as Advanced Plus but without the Vitamin D test.
Designed especially for men, this is an overall assessment of male hormonal status, vitality and performance. Tests four glands: thyroid, adrenals, testes and prostate. 10 tests including PSA. (No Vitamin D test included.)
Thyroid testing plus Elements testing. Allows your practitioner to see if you have too little or too much iodine and other nutrients essential for thyroid health. Also tests for overexposure to mercury, bromine, lithium, arsenic and cadmium- any of which can affect the thyroid.
Measures the 9 major neurotransmitters plus 5 metabolites. Shows overall functional assessment of neurotransmitters and related enzymes. Adrenal and reproductive hormone add-on tests available. See full listing for Neurotransmitter add-on tests.
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 cost-effective, comprehensive diagnostic test for thyroid, adrenal and sex hormones. 14 tests including Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3
A comprehensive grouping of glandular tests including ovaries, adrenals and thyroid, this specialized test can identify treatable hormone imbalances that affect fertility.
Same as basic Weight Management Profile, plus extensive Thyroid testing including fT3, fT4 and TPO.
Same as core Weight Management Profile, plus vascular health tests including cholesterol and triglycerides.
Our most complete test to evaluate hormonally-based weight issues including thyroid levels and vascular system health tests.
