What this Test measures

Weight Management

This test evaluates key biomarkers associated with optimal weight.


Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands and is the body’s primary stress hormone.  It enhances your brain’s use of glucose (sugar) and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues.  Its release is increased in response to stress and low blood-glucose levels. It helps regulate metabolism, affects blood pressure, and serves as an anti-inflammatory. Chronically elevated levels of cortisol are an indication a body is stressed which can make healthful eating habits difficult to maintain – the result is often stress-eating which leads to overeating and weight gain.

High cortisol levels – high cortisol levels can be caused by many underlying issues such as overactivity or cancer of the pituitary or adrenal glands, chronic stress and medication side effects. Estrogen can also increase cortisol levels in your blood.

Symptoms of high cortisol:

  • Weight gain around midsection and upper back
  • Rounding of the face
  • Acne
  • Slowed healing
  • Muscle weakness
  • Severe fatigue

Low cortisol levels low cortisol levels mean the adrenal glands aren’t making enough cortisol. This could be caused by Addison’s disease which could be caused by cancerous cells, removal of the adrenal glands, certain genetic disorders, and certain antifungal medications.

Symptoms of low cortisol:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Dehydration
  • Decreased appetite
  • Low blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Irritability

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is made by the thyroid gland and is released into the blood where it is delivered to tissues in the body. It helps the body stay warm, use energy, and keeps the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should.  High levels of TSH have been associated with a slow metabolism and weight gain. Measuring TSH levels can help determine if you have underactive or overactive thyroid.

High TSH levels:  The pituitary gland produces more TSH when the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones. High levels are an indication that the thyroid gland is not making enough thyroid hormone (primary hypothyroidism)

Symptoms of high TSH:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Sensitivity to cold temperatures
  • Slow heart rate
  • Depression
  • Constipation

Low TSH levels:  Low TSH levels are an indication that the thyroid is producing too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid). Low TSH may result from an abnormality in the pituitary gland. This abnormality prevents it from making enough TSH to stimulate the thyroid.

Symptoms of low TSH levels:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Nervousness or irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent bowel movements or diarrhea
  • Weight loss with increased appetite

Testosterone is a sex hormone that regulates sex drive, muscle mass, bone mass, fat distribution and the production or both red blood cell and sperm in men (in men).  It helps male features develop over time and it naturally decreases as men age.  The effects of gradually lowering testosterone levels in men are known as late-onset hypogonadism. This condition affects 4 in 10 men by the age of 45.  Women also produce testosterone but in much smaller amounts

Low TestosteroneLow testosterone levels is called Testosterone Deficiency (TD) or Low Testosterone (Low-T).  This condition is more common in men who are overweight or diabetic. Testosterone usually decreases with age so older men tend to have lower testosterone.  

Symptoms of low testosterone in Men: 

  • Fatigue
  • Decreased muscle mass 
  • Increased fat levels, especially belly fat
  • Overall weight gain
  • Low libido or sex drive 
  • Irritability
  • Mental fog and memory loss
  • Depression and low overall drive

Symptoms of low testosterone in women: 

  • Increased body fat
  • Irritability, depression, anxiety
  • Loss of bone density
  • Low libido or sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness 
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Thinning hair
  • Memory loss

Estradiol is the strongest of the three estrogens in the body and is an important factor in the female reproductive system.  In women, estradiol’s main function is to mature and then maintain the reproductive system.  Estradiol levels cause the maturation and release of the egg as well as the thickening of the uterus lining to allow a fertilized egg to implant.  As women age, levels of this hormone decrease significantly.

Symptoms of high estradiol:

  • Acne
  • Constipation
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Depression
  • Increased risk of uterine and breast cancer
  • Increased risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Weight gain
  • Menstrual problems

Symptoms of low estradiol:

  • Absence of menstrual cycle
  • Mood swings
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Osteoporosis

Questions? We Have Answers.

How do hormones impact weight loss?

Fat storage and breakdown are strictly regulated by certain hormones in the body. Hormones also influence energy expenditure, or the number of calories your body burns on a daily basis. For this reason, fluctuations in hormone levels may lead to weight gain or loss, as well as body fat accumulation in specific areas.

What are the symptoms of belly fat caused by hormonal changes?
  • You feel less satiated after eating.
  • You’re always stressed.
  • Your weight gain is only in your abdomen. 
  • You’re craving sugar. 
  • You’re hungry all the time. 
  • You’re losing your hair.
When should I take my test?

Please prepare to test first thing in the morning. Be sure to drink plenty of water before testing! Being well hydrated will help increase blood flow and improve the testing experience. 

*Note: Do not test on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday. Your sample must be picked up, dropped at a dropbox location or brought to FedEx on the same day you test. 

Can I share my results with my healthcare provider?
