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.
