Weight Management Profile

    Weight gain & obesity affect 69% of us. Testing can reveal whether hormones are the root cause of your weight gain.

    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.

    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.

    What’s the Connection Between Hormones and Weight?

    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.

    Common hormone-related causes of weight gain often involve the following scenarios:

    Estrogen & Progesterone Imbalances

    Result in weight gain in hips and thighs, water retention & sluggish metabolism

    Low Testosterone or DHEA

    Lead to decreased lean muscle and increased body fat, decreased metabolic rate & abdominal obesity

    High Cortisol

    Results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired & increased belly fat

    Low Cortisol

    Causes chronic fatigue, low energy, food and sugar cravings, poor exercise tolerance or recovery & low immune reserves

    Vitamin D3 deficiency

    Associated with hyperinsulinemia & increased belly fat

    High TSH

    Leads to hypothyroidism, low metabolic rate & obesity

    High Insulin

    Indicative of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome & abdominal obesity

    High HbA1c

    Predictive of type 2 diabetes

    This test is done through a combination of blood collection as well as saliva.
