Sex Hormones Profile

Hormones Urine Turn Around Time: 7 Days

Description

The Sex Hormones Profile provides a broad overview of sex steroid hormones, their metabolites, and the efficiency of the enzymes that metabolize these hormones. This non-invasive test requires only 4 or 5 separate urine collections. Because the breakdown of hormones relies so heavily on processes within the liver, this test can also elucidate areas of interest as it pertains to conjugation of each metabolite. Additionally, testing urinary hormone metabolites can contribute to further understanding of endogenous hormone secretion, supplemental hormone utilization, enzyme activity, oxidative stress, and insight into whether your body is safely metabolizing hormones.

This profile is a consideration for patients with concerns that are particular to sex hormones and/or monitoring for harmful metabolites due to the influence of HRT/BHRT

Methodology

Liquid Urine

When should I use
