The hormone tests used by BodyLogicMD affiliated physicians include state-of-the-art 24 hour urinary hormone testing, saliva hormone testing, serum hormone testing and a saliva and blood spot combination assessment.
Simple Tests for an Extraordinary Solution
Prior to seeing a BodyLogicMD affiliated practitioner, you will be asked to complete specific testing to get an accurate picture of what is going on inside your body. The initial testing protocol includes both serum and urinary hormone testing although, in some cases, saliva may be used. The information gathered from your lab results will help design your personalized treatment plan. These tests are the first step towards a healthier, happier you.
Serum Hormone Tests
Certain hormones circulating in the bloodstream, such as the thyroid hormones and insulin, cannot be measured using urinary or salivary tests. As a result, the initial panel of testing includes a blood draw to help get a clear understanding of your hormone levels and also allows your practitioner to tailor a personalized wellness program that addresses your individual needs.
The fasting blood draw can be performed at a location near you with one of our partnered laboratories.
Urinary Hormone Tests
Urine testing throughout the day helps present a larger picture to the practitioner of overall hormone balance. The method of collecting urine five times a day is a more detailed way to capture the hormone level fluctuations that most people experience throughout the day (known as circadian rhythm). Some of the most accurate results for free and bio-available hormones and metabolites in the body come from urine testing.
Besides accuracy, these urine tests are designed to be discrete. You will collect samples of urine throughout the day, without having to carry a large collection jug. The kit is mailed directly to your home and includes pre-addressed, pre-paid return envelopes so returning your package is easy.*
