Hormones influence almost every system in your body and even a slight imbalance can cause a wide range of symptoms. Hormone testing identifies whether your body is in balance so that you can make lifestyle changes to help you feel your best.
Our certified nurse comes to your home or office to take blood (a fast process), which we then take back to the lab for testing.
Once your blood work is in, we not only talk with you about your results, we can recommend ways to keep your hormones balanced. You’ll receive a full documentation of your test results along with an explanation and treatment recommendations.
When you know what’s causing your symptoms and what you can do to balance your hormones, you can make better health decisions for yourself so that you can feel your best year-round.
Many health issues can be treated quickly and effectively with our custom IV therapy and vitamin treatments, and some require a more in-depth medical management program, available with our medical director Dr. Abe Malkin.
Hormones are chemicals that deliver messages throughout your body and help your body both develop and function normally. Hormones are produced by your endocrine system, a collection of organs including your thyroid, pancreas, adrenal glands, and pituitaries. Your hormones are in balance when your endocrine system is working normally. However, any single organ producing too many or too few hormones can throw the entire system off. Because your hormones affect so many different parts of your body, it doesn’t take a huge change in your body’s levels for you to feel a difference in your health or your mood.
Hormone testing can benefit anyone. Imbalances in your hormones can be caused by several different factors including diet, stress, lifestyle, genetics, toxins, or other environmental factors.
Identifying whether your hormones are out of balance is essential to help you know when to take corrective action. Depending on the exact hormone (or hormones) out of balance, you may need to make changes in your diet, fitness, supplements, lifestyle adjustments, or hormone therapy. We also test for the levels of cortisol – your main stress hormone – to help identify whether you may benefit from stress management techniques or other stress-reducing lifestyle changes.
Because our bodies require different amounts of chemicals for normal function, balanced hormones are different for men and women, and so are the symptoms of imbalance.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalances in men include:
Hormone fluctuations in women are a normal part of the menstrual cycle and are different than a hormonal imbalance.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalances in women include:
Many of these symptoms are a normal part of aging for both men and women. The best way to know for certain whether you have a hormone imbalance is to be tested.
