Weight Management Hormone Test Panel

Hormones are messengers that send signals to various parts of the body; by doing so, they affect the way our organs work, and regulate many different body processes. Hormones naturally follow a cycle, and hormone testing looks at where your hormones are in that cycle. 

Hormone imbalances may make it difficult to maintain your weight. The Weight Management Hormone Panel can help you and your healthcare provider understand any potential underlying hormonal imbalances that could affect weight gain, weight loss, or weight management. 

This panel looks at various hormones and other factors that play different roles in your body’s ability to maintain weight. Cortisol is a stress hormone that affects your metabolism and the way your body uses sugar- so if you frequently feel stressed, your body will use sugar differently than if you were relaxed. Thyroid hormones also affect your metabolism, which can in turn affect your weight. Your sex hormones- testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, DHEA-S- affect the way that your body deposits fat.
