Do You Think Your Hormones Are Out Of Balance?
A well-balanced hormone system is important to your health. If the interaction between hormones (estrogens, progesterone, cortisol, DHEA’s and testosterone) are out of balance, this may result in weight gain, hot flashes and insomnia for females. While for men a declining testosterone level is linked to prostate enlargement, decline in muscle strength and lethargy. Bringing your hormones in balance could reduce complaints that you suffer from.
A hormone test provides clarity on your hormone levels and is typically based on your saliva (not blood). This is an easy, non-invasive and accurate way to provide a good snapshot of your hormone production throughout the day. The Cortisol levels can be measured several times a day.
How Can You Test For Hormone Balance?
At Beyond Nutrition in Dubai we conduct many hormone tests. The process is simple:
- Book an appointment at our Dubai JLT clinic and our licensed, experienced nurse will take a saliva sample which will be sent to the lab the same day. The whole process will take around 10 minutes. We can also visit you at a location of your convenience (additional costs apply)
- For your Cortisol tests, you need to take samples yourself as well. Clear instructions will be provided on timing during the day, in what menopausal phase, and what to watch out for in case one takes hormones
- A test result report will be shared with you by email after 3-4 weeks
