The Weight Management Profile identifies hormonal imbalances that contribute to obesity, weight gain and difficulty losing or sustaining a healthy weight. Used as a screening tool, it serves as an early indicator of insulin resistance and risks for metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
Weight Management Profile includes:
Saliva: E2, Pg, T, DS, Cx4 (Diurnal Cortisol)
Blood Spot: TSH, Vitamin D2/D3, Insulin, HbA1c
Weight Management Profile allows physicians to isolate specific imbalances of one or more hormones that contribute to weight gain, slowed metabolism, increased body fat deposition, and food/sugar cravings. Facilitates correction of imbalances for proactive weight control, and associated risks for cardiometabolic disease and diabetes.
Consider for Women: With premenstrual weight gain and fluid retention; perimenopausal and/or menopausal weight gain in hips/thigh, and/or inability to lose / tendency to regain weight, central obesity, PCOS, adrenal and thyroid dysfunction; breast cancer risks.
Consider for Men: With andropausal weight gain in hips/thighs (female fat distribution pattern) and/or inability to lose / tendency to regain weight, central obesity, adrenal and thyroid dysfunction; prostate cancer risks.
Optional Thyroid Add-on: Free T3, free T4, and TPOab antibodies provide a better estimation of thyroid hormone bioavailability to facilitate effective thyroid therapy.
Consider when: Symptoms of thyroid deficiency are problematic.
Optional Cardio Add-on: Cardiometabolic risk markers hsCRP, triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and VLDL cholesterol for early detection of pro-inflammatory CVD risks and pre-diabetes.
Consider for: Abdominal obesity, and symptoms of insulin resistance /metabolic syndrome.
