The Weight Management Core 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 - see below for details.

The four Weight Management Profiles start with 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
  • 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" test different from any other?

These hormone test profiles are not for everyone.  It is for those who may 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 even 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.
