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 (TSH) thyroid stimulating hormone; both T4 and T3, (RT3) Reverse T3, thyroid antibodies including TPO antibodies, TG antibodies and TSH receptor antibodies; and vital thyroid nutrients selenium; iodine and tyrosine.

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

Adrenal Hormone Testing
Adrenal hormone testing may be utilised to detect ‘adrenal fatigue’; adrenal stress and other issues concerning low energy, chronic stress, sleep difficulties and daily well-being.

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

Cortisol Profile
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 may be associated with symptoms of low energy, stress or anxiety, insomnia, waking feeling unrefreshed, weight gain, inability to lose weight, and lack of daily well-being.

Inflammation Testing
Chronic inflammation may be harmful to health and metabolism and may cause damage to proteins, cells, blood vessels, joints and other important organs. Chronic inflammation may be associated with cardiovascular disease; 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 may wreak havoc on our health and well-being. Low oestrogen may contribute to hot flushes, mood changes and vaginal dryness, whilst elevated oestrogen levels may be associated with weight gain, migraines, breast tenderness, cysts and oestrogen-hormone-related cancers.

Oestrogen Metabolites
Oestrogen Metabolites are tested to detect safe or less-safe oestrogen metabolism. The metabolites have their own specific biological actions; some have stimulatory properties of estradiol, whilst others are weaker and protective estrogen molecules.

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.
