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
- heart rate
- sleep cycles
- reproductive cycles and sexual function
- general growth and development
- mood and stress levels
- body temperature
All of these can negatively affect quality of life and may increase the risk for hormone-related diseases, including hormone-sensitive cancers.
A comprehensive assessment of individual hormones can provide patterns of imbalances in different hormones. Hormones tested are:
- Morning, noon, evening and night cortisol
- 17-OH progesterone
This comprehensive panel helps assess the status of hormones in the human body. It eliminates the guesswork of determining root causes of generic and global symptoms and provides practitioners with a clear-cut picture of hormonal imbalances present.
