To assess the status of sex and adrenal hormones.
Hormones are essential chemical messengers which regulate routine processes in the body. Hormone imbalances can affect a wide range of body functions including:
metabolism and appetite
reproductive cycles and sexual function
general growth and development
mood and stress levels
All of these can negatively affect quality of life and may increase the risk for hormone-related diseases, including hormone-sensitive cancers.
Assessment of sex and adrenal hormones is critical to differentiate hormonal imbalance from other common conditions which have overlapping symptoms, such as chronic infections, toxic exposures, GI malabsorption, hepatic detoxification problems, and metabolic disorders.
Hormones, especially adrenal hormones and sex hormones, are interconnected with neurotransmitters. An imbalance in adrenal and sex hormones could lead to neurotransmitter imbalances which could revert back to cause hormonal imbalances. Consider running a Hormones panel alongside a Neurotransmitters panel for the most accurate assessment of causes of hormone imbalances and their connected neurotransmitter pathways.
Only healthcare providers licensed in their state may order laboratory testing.
