Hormones are the chemical messengers that a body produces to regulate the different functions of the human body. Having a little too much or even a too certain amount of hormones (hormone imbalance) can impact your well-being. The expert practitioners at the National Wellness Group offer you the hope for better healing with the hormones testing, which would be helpful in the evaluation of the hormone balance.
The hormones of a human body change as you age, and some might change throughout the day. Therefore, we use hormone testing to detect and evaluate the hormone imbalances that might be making you sick. We also conduct the testing of hormones using different blood samples, but some of the tests might require saliva or urine samples.
Most probably, we test the levels of:
The tests that we use are called the suppression tests and the stimulation tests that evaluate the hormonal imbalance. We provide you with the hormones and other substances that will either start (stimulate) or stop (suppress) the production of certain hormones. Then, we will check that you’re your body is beginning to respond.
There are many common types of suppression and stimulation testing that include:
We will be injecting the hormone glucagon into the tissue of muscle and measuring the growth levels of the hormone levels over for around3 to 4 hours.
The doctors give you cosyntropin, which acts like the ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone). ACTH is the hormone produced in the pituitary gland that is used to stimulate the adrenal gland to produce cortisol. Your cortisol levels are measured every 30 minutes for an hour. This would be helping us to test to enable us to confirm adrenal insufficiency.
