HORMONE TESTING

Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers. These messengers play an important role in your overall health and mood. There are many different types of hormones throughout your body such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and DHEA. When hormones are out of balance, we may present with a variety of different symptoms such as acne, weight gain, painful periods, low sex drive, or infertility/inability to conceive. Testing your hormones is the best way to diagnose where a hormone imbalance may be. Using a specific testing tool called the DUTCH by Precision Analytical, is a comprehensive, effective, and easy way to evaluate your hormone health. Signs and symptoms your hormones may be out of balance:

  • Acne
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Period problems
  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain on abdomen
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Infertility, unable to conceive, miscarriages
FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

Having underlying food sensitivities may cause many symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, irritable bowel, bloating and skin conditions such as Psoriasis and Eczema. Food sensitivity testing looks at 150 different foods and how your body responds to each of them based on your immune and inflammatory response. Knowing which foods you may be sensitive to, and eliminating these from the diet, will lower your inflammation response and allow your body to heal. Signs and symptoms of a possible food sensitivity include:

  • Frequent trips to the bathroom
  • Bloating and discomfort after meals
  • Skin reactions (acne, psoriasis, eczema)
  • Unexplained joint pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Underactive thyroid
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Mood imbalances
  • Autoimmune conditions
ADRENAL HORMONE TESTING

Adrenal fatigue is a term often used to describe the possibility of lower-than-normal cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that is made by your adrenal glands and released in high concentrations during stressful events. If stress is chronic, the response made by your adrenals can become exhausted over time. Signs your adrenals may be overworked and testing may be appropriate:

  • Easily lightheaded when standing after sitting for long periods
  • Low blood pressure
  • Excessive cravings for sweet and salty foods
  • Morning and afternoon fatigue, followed by increased energy levels in the evening
  • Trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up in the middle of the night or too early in the morning
  • Feeling “tired but wired”
  • Constant feelings of stress or anxiety
  • Burn out or exhaustion
  • Constant muscle heaviness
  • Inability to deal with or manage day to day life stresses
SIBO TESTING

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) can be a common condition that is often overlooked. What causes this overgrowth of bacteria is when bacteria migrate from one part of the digestive tract to the small intestines. Another way is when bacteria that is already naturally occurring, becomes overpopulated. The overgrowth may happen because of stress, a weak immune system, antibiotic use, and low levels of stomach acid. An in-office breath test will help diagnose SIBO and the severity of the condition. If diagnosed, treatment is initiated and includes antimicrobials, dietary changes, and some light lifestyle modifications such as stress reduction techniques.SIBO symptoms present in a variety of ways and include but are not limited to:

  • Weight gain
  • Gas and bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Indigestion
  • Stomach pain
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Food sensitivities
