Who should take the test?

In addition to hormone quantity, understanding how your body processes and eliminates hormones is vital. Hormone metabolite testing is instrumental in assessing whether certain hormones are overproduced or underproduced and whether they are safely eliminated or accumulating at potentially risky levels.

Our Advanced Hormone Metabolites Test offers a comprehensive assessment for a wide range of individuals, including those at risk of breast cancer, experiencing hormone-related symptoms, addressing prostate issues, concerned about BPA exposure, managing weight, insulin resistance, adrenal dysfunction, or sleep problems.

How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a urine sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

How is my privacy protected?

Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. Both we and our partner laboratories (which may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.

You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties. Additionally, all samples will be disposed of after analysis. Both our Verisana portal for registering kits and receiving results as well as our CLIA-certified partner laboratories are fully HIPAA-compliant.

Test measures
For the Advanced Hormone Metabolites Test we analyze:
  • 13 Estrogens
  • 7 Progestogens
  • 8 Androgens
  • 4 Glucocorticoids
  • Free Diurnal Cortisol (4/day)
  • Free Diurnal Cortisone (4/day)
  • Diurnal Melatonin (4/day)
  • Creatinine
Estrogen

Estrogen, produced primarily in the ovaries in women and in smaller amounts in the adrenal glands and fat cells, is essential for both men and women. It plays a pivotal role in the female reproductive system, secondary sexual traits, bone health, cardiovascular health, mood, and cognition. In men, it is also present, produced in the testes and adrenal glands.

The main estrogen types—estradiol, estrone, and estriol—regulate menstrual cycles in women, contribute to secondary sexual characteristics, maintain bone density, support cardiovascular health, influence mood and cognition, and play a role in reproductive health.

Estrogen levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle in women, with imbalances potentially leading to various health issues. Both in men and women, balanced estrogen levels are essential for overall well-being.

Progestogen

Progestogen, a synthetic hormone resembling natural progesterone, plays vital roles in the female reproductive system. It regulates the menstrual cycle, supports contraception, aids hormone replacement therapy, treats menstrual disorders, and is crucial for a healthy pregnancy. Progestogens are used in various medical contexts to manage a range of conditions related to hormone balance and reproductive health.

Androgen

Androgens are a group of hormones, with testosterone being the most well-known, that primarily regulate male sexual characteristics and reproductive functions. They contribute to muscle and bone health, libido, mood, metabolism, and hair growth.

Androgens also play important roles in females, albeit in smaller quantities, impacting various aspects of health and well-being. Balancing androgen levels is essential for overall physiological function in both men and women.

Glucocorticoid

Glucocorticoids, led by cortisol, are steroid hormones produced by the adrenal glands. They serve critical roles in stress response, metabolism regulation, anti-inflammation, and immune function. Cortisol follows a daily rhythm, peaking in the morning.

While vital for adapting to stress, chronic cortisol elevation can impact health negatively, influencing conditions like anxiety, depression, and metabolic disorders. Glucocorticoid production is tightly regulated through a feedback system.

Cortisol

Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, playing a central role in stress response, metabolism regulation, and immune function. It is often called the “stress hormone” due to its release in stressful situations, providing energy and managing inflammation. Cortisol levels follow a daily rhythm, with higher levels in the morning.

Cortisone

Urinary cortisone, a hormone originating from the adrenal glands, is assessable through urine tests to gauge adrenal function and stress response. Deviations in its levels may signify adrenal disorders or heightened stress, making it a valuable tool for monitoring one’s overall health, particularly for those with suspected adrenal concerns or prolonged stress.

Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. It rises in response to darkness, signaling the body to sleep. Light exposure, especially from screens, can disrupt melatonin production. Melatonin supplements are used to address sleep issues like insomnia and jet lag, with potential benefits for circadian rhythm disorders. The usage of melatonin supplements should be discussed with your healthcare provider for safe and effective results, as dosages vary by individual.

Creatinine

Urinary creatinine is a byproduct produced through muscle metabolism, subsequently filtered by the kidneys, and ultimately eliminated through urine. It holds significant importance as a primary marker for both kidney function and muscle mass. Deviations from normal levels can indicate kidney-related concerns or be valuable in evaluating urine concentration. Monitoring creatinine levels is essential for overall health assessment.

Why is hormone metabolite testing important?

Hormone metabolite testing goes beyond measuring hormone levels; it assesses how hormones are processed in your body. This can help reveal crucial information about hormone-related health conditions and risks.

Who can benefit from this test?

This test is beneficial for a range of individuals, including those at risk of breast cancer, those with symptoms of hormone imbalances, men dealing with prostate issues, individuals concerned about BPA exposure, and those struggling with weight management, insulin resistance, adrenal dysfunction, or sleep problems.

How does the test assess hormone imbalances?

By analyzing hormone metabolites, the test can help identify if specific hormones are being produced excessively or inadequately, contributing to symptoms of hormone imbalances.

What can the test reveal about breast cancer risk?

The test evaluates hormone metabolites associated with breast cancer risk, which can help provide valuable insights for early detection and preventive measures.

How does the test address sleep problems?

By evaluating diurnal melatonin patterns, the test can help provide insights into sleep-wake cycle regulation, which is essential for addressing sleep-related health challenges.
