Hormone testing is especially useful in determining imbalances and most often prescribed to individuals experiencing menopause, PMS, irregular menses, PCOS, fertility issues, stress, loss of libido, unusual hair growth patterns, or bone loss. After determining hormone levels, typically through saliva or urine metabolites, a treatment plan is developed to address any imbalances.
Your adrenal glands are responsible for all of your responses to stress. Levels of the main adrenal hormone, cortisol, rise and fall in a daily pattern that underlies the more erratic fluctuations caused by the stress response. Hormone testing is used to determine the levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA.
Hormonal imbalance is the underlying cause of common symptoms such as fatigue, menstrual and fertility issues, weight gain and mood disorders.
