Metabolic & Hormone Testing

Thyroid Testing
Thyroid testing can be performed via blood or urine testing, depending on the circumstances. We offer highly advanced thyroid testing options, including thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH); both T4 and T3, Reverse T3 (RT3) , thyroid antibodies including TSH receptor antibodies; and selenium; iodine and tyrosine.

Iodine Testing
Iodine is not only required for healthy thyroid function and metabolism, but is also required for brain function, healthy breast tissue and cancer prevention, and is vital for your baby’s health during pregnancy. Iodine deficiency is widespread in Australia, rated second only to Vitamin D deficiency.

Adrenal Hormones Test
Adrenal hormone testing may be utilised to detect adrenal fatigue; adrenal stress and other issues concerning low energy, chronic stress and health.

Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance is a common disorder affecting our modern society, due largely to our diets high in processed carbohydrates and sugar. Insulin resistance may cause weight gain and difficulty losing weight, blood sugar issues and is associated with diabetes.

Cortisol Profile Test
The cortisol profile tests your daily cortisol cycle, which may be high or low, or both high and low at different times of the day! A cortisol imbalance can create symptoms of low energy, stress or anxiety, insomnia and waking feeling unrefreshed, weight gain and inability to lose weight, plus many more.

Inflammation Testing
Chronic inflammation is harmful to health and metabolism, causing damage to proteins, cells, blood vessels, joints and other important organs. Chronic inflammation can lead to cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol levels; mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, ADHD or anger issues; autoimmune disorders; arthritis; skin conditions plus many more.

Oestrogen Profile
Both high and low oestrogen levels can wreak havoc on our health and well being. Low oestrogen may cause hot flushes, mood changes and vaginal dryness, whilst high oestrogen levels are implicated in weight gain, migraines, breast tenderness, cysts and hormone related cancers.

Oestrogen Metabolites
Oestrogen Metabolites are tested to detect safe or less-safe oestrogen metabolism.

Organic Acids Cycle
The Organic Acids test can include Krebs Cycle (Citric Acid Cycle) Metabolites and Fatty Acid (Ketone) Metabolites to assess cellular mitochondria energy production.

Basal Metabolic Rate Testing
The Basal Metabolic Temperature Test is a screening tool to detect low metabolism, which may then require further specialised testing such as the extensive thyroid profile.
