Do you feel as though you have tried everything to lose weight? Fad diets, counting calories, hitting the gym ... and the scale still doesn’t budge? In this age of technology there are all kinds of resources to track your calorie intake and output plus exercise options and nutrition guides to follow; but getting the hormonal balance part of your weight loss equation right is a lot more complicated!
Have you ever considered that your hormonal imbalance might be keeping you from reaching your weight loss goals? This panel is designed to look at hormones contributing to weight gain or difficulty in shedding those few extra pounds. This panel also targets risk markers for chronic inflammation, adrenal dysfunction and vitamin D deficiency as well as insulin resistance leading to diabetes; including a look at your iron stores through the measurement of ferritin.
Most people do not realize how thyroid imbalance can effect and change their quality of life! This panel also looks at the key thyroid markers necessary for weight management and weight loss.
