This test is the ideal gold standard for complex hormone patients, as well as those struggling with an imbalance. The comprehensive assessment can reveal a large amount of information from such a simple collection.
Many women struggle with fluctuating levels of key hormones, such as cortisol, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. When these levels are imbalance, they can trigger widespread health issues that impact menstrual cycle, energy levels, appetite, mood, sex drive and sleep patterns.
If you struggle with the following conditions, this test may help to provide further insight:
- Poor concentration, ‘brain fog’
- Low energy levels
- Fatigue, lethargy
- Sexual dysfunction
- Irregular sleeping patterns
- Impaired Immune System
- Hot flushes
- Uterine fibroids
- PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
- Irregular menstruation
- Mood changes
- Brain fog
- Vaginal dryness
- Thinning hair
- Bone loss
- Dry skin
Additionally, this test may offer further insight into ‘adrenal fatigue’. This syndrome typically embodies signs and symptoms that include fatigue, sleep disruption, poor exercise tolerance and recovery, low libido, brain fog, weakened immune function, and reduced stress tolerance. The scientific term for this condition is known as HPA axis dysfunction (HPA-D).
HPA axis dysfunction is caused by many different aspects of the modern lifestyle, including poor diet, sleep deprivation, chronic stress, lack of (or too much) exercise, and inflammation. HPA axis dysfunction affects nearly every cell and tissue in the body. This condition can also be treated with lifestyle considerations.
This complete hormone panel is conducted at home with a simple urine collection.
