The Weight Management kit is ideal for women or men struggling with weight issues, menopause or andropause, women with polycystic ovaries, and anyone wanting to get to the root of general health concerns.
Many know that maintaining an ideal weight is difficult despite the best efforts with diet and exercise. What most don’t know is that an undetected hormone imbalance can be the missing link – sabotaging our hard work to stay slim. Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat. As we age, shifting hormones trigger numerous symptoms of imbalance – including unexplained weight gain.
Tests included in the Weight Management profile: E2, Pg, T, DS & Cx4 (saliva); TSH, Insulin, HbA1c & Vitamin D (blood spot)
Additional blood spot tests provide a better estimation of thyroid hormone bioavailability and/or cardiovascular disease risk.
Add-on tests available for this kit:
Thyroid add-on – fT3, fT4 & TPOab
Cardio add-on – hsCRP, TG, CH, LDL, HDL & VLDL
