Weight Management Profile – saliva & blood spot
The Weight Management Profile identifies hormonal imbalances that contribute to obesity, weight gain and difficulty losing or sustaining a healthy weight. Used as a screening tool, it serves as an early indicator of insulin resistance and risks for metabolic syndrome and diabetes. It allows physicians to isolate specific imbalances of one or more hormones that contribute to weight gain, slowed metabolism, increased body fat deposition, and food / sugar cravings. Facilitates correction of imbalances for proactive weight control, and associated risks for cardiometabolic disease and diabetes.
