Why Should I Get Tested?

You want to feel vibrantly alive and optimistic about life, but when your hormones are out of balance, you just don’t feel right — even when you are eating well, exercising, and getting adequate sleep. Now there is a test that can help you and your doctor balance your hormones for optimal health.

Hormone Balance is the Key to Health

Your hormonal system is like a symphony playing a complex piece of music. If each hormone isn’t playing its part, you might feel off-key, start encountering a host of symptoms and disorders, and be at risk for disease. Both men and women can experience hormonal imbalance, which can be caused by inadequate or excessive hormone levels and many other factors. Balanced hormones are the key to well-being. If you have tried to treat certain symptoms but you still don’t feel well, it might be time to have your hormones tested.

Why a 24-hour Urine Hormone Test?

Hormones are secreted in small “bursts” throughout the day. By collecting urine for a full 24-hour period, this test captures the hormonal peaks and valleys and provides an accurate assessment of your hormone levels. Other methods, such as a blood draw or saliva sample, only capture hormone levels that circulate in the body at the moment of collection.

A 24-hour Urine Hormone test also looks at hormones that are available only in urine. These hormones provide insight into your risk for developing breast or prostate cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, and other diseases associated with aging.
