Who should take the test?

Worried about experiencing mood swings, disrupted sleep patterns, or infertility? Maybe you’re dealing with a variety of symptoms and struggling to pinpoint their root cause?

An irregular hormonal system can impact our well-being in numerous ways, resulting in symptoms that diminish our quality of life and potentially raise the risk of various illnesses. Since many symptoms can be linked to different hormonal imbalances, identifying the true cause can be challenging. Consequently, a comprehensive hormone test that assesses the levels of various hormones is the most suitable approach when the source of the issue remains elusive.

The test analyzes the morning values of the following hormones:

  • Estradiol
  • Testosterone
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Diurnal Cortisol

Our Comprehensive Hormone Test gives a broad overview for those who are looking for more information about their hormone system.

Test measures
For the Comprehensive Hormone Test we analyse:
  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol (4x)
Estradiol and Progesterone

Among the female sex hormones, estrogens hold the utmost significance. Estrogen, in fact, comprises a group of hormones, with Estradiol being the biologically most potent one during a woman’s fertile years.

It is responsible for:

  • The development of the female body, from girl to woman
  • The monthly regeneration and protection of the endometrium (womb)
  • Breast growth
  • The elasticity of the blood vessels
  • Radiant skin and healthy hair
  • Moist eyes and mucous membranes
  • Clear thinking processes
  • Stabilisation of moods

Following ovulation, the ovaries generate progesterone to ready the uterus for potential pregnancy and safeguard the uterine mucous lining. Progesterone, working in conjunction with estrogen, plays a pivotal role in regulating the menstrual cycle.

The sensitive balance between estrogen and progesterone

Estrogen levels undergo fluctuations over the course of a woman’s life, extending beyond just the menstrual cycle. The intensity of these fluctuations varies from person to person, triggering various symptoms in response. Physical discomfort can arise not only from an estrogen deficiency but also from an excess, referred to as estrogen dominance. This condition can manifest as water retention, nausea, mood swings, fatigue, lethargy, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, breast tenderness, cysts, fibroids, painful periods, and weight gain.

Paradoxically, estrogen dominance can coexist with estrogen deficiency due to the delicate interplay between estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen levels dictate the requisite amount of progesterone. Estrogen dominance can result when the body fails to produce sufficient progesterone relative to the estrogen levels. This imbalance can also occur if the body is deficient in estrogen (estrogen deficiency) while simultaneously not producing an appropriate amount of progesterone.

Therefore, in cases of estrogen deficiency, it’s essential to not only assess the absolute hormone levels but also evaluate the ratio between estrogen and progesterone.

DHEA and Cortisol

Cortisol and DHEA are both manufactured within the adrenal glands. Cortisol, alongside adrenaline, stands as one of the most pivotal stress hormones, aiding the body in responding to specific pressures. These stress hormones unleash energy reserves, priming the body for “fight or flight” responses. Cortisol production is also stimulated during intense physical exertion, competitive sports, moments of psychological, physical, or mental stress, as well as severe illnesses.

Cortisol and DHEA play crucial roles in various metabolic processes within the body. Cortisol contributes to immune processes with its anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties, serving a vital role in overall health maintenance.

DHEA serves as a precursor to both female and male sex hormones. Its production naturally declines starting around the age of 30, and a deficiency can give rise to a range of health issues.

It is responsible for:

  • Burning of body fat
  • Prevention of osteoporosis
  • Minimizing cancer and heart diseases
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Slowing down the aging process
  • Positively influencing memory performance

However, it is important to note that both too low and too high levels can cause unpleasant symptoms.

It’s widely recognized that chronic stress is detrimental to health, and stress serves as the primary trigger for increased cortisol production. When cortisol levels become excessively high, they can lead to symptoms such as weakened immunity, depression, physical fatigue, metabolic irregularities, diabetes, obesity, and sleep disturbances. Elevated cortisol levels can indeed result in unpleasant symptoms.

Conversely, excessively low cortisol levels can disrupt overall well-being, as cortisol plays a vital role. Beyond providing energy reserves, it also influences cardiovascular health, gastrointestinal well-being, the immune system, and brain functions. This holds true for DHEA as well. Low DHEA levels are associated with a heightened risk of conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, osteoporosis, depression, heart disease, and obesity. In women, elevated DHEA levels can lead to a deeper voice and increased body hair growth.

Testosterone

Testosterone, primarily associated with men, plays a crucial role in defining male physical characteristics like beard growth, facilitating the development of male reproductive organs, and influencing sexual potency and fertility. Moreover, it bolsters heart health, brain function, bone density, aids in muscle growth, fat breakdown, counters diabetes and high blood pressure, and contributes to lower cholesterol levels.

Yet, testosterone holds significance for women as well, even though they produce 20 to 30 times less testosterone than men. Testosterone has mood-enhancing effects, promotes assertiveness, and enhances sexual desire in both genders. Additionally, it heightens sexual sensitivity, making it easier for women to achieve orgasm.

To reap the benefits of these positive attributes, maintaining a healthy testosterone level is essential; a deficiency can lead to the aforementioned issues, while excess testosterone can result in excessive aggressiveness, acne, oily skin, and unwanted facial and body hair growth in women.

It’s worth noting that testosterone deficiency can affect both women and men.

Some of the symptoms connected with a testosterone deficiency:

  • Decreased libido, potency problems (♂), orgasm difficulties (♀)
  • Decrease in muscles / few distinctive muscles
  • Fat deposits in the stomach and breast areas
  • Cellulite, varicose veins
  • Slack arms and face, wrinkle development, dry skin
  • Decreased hair growth (e.g. beard (♂))
  • Low stamina, consistent tiredness
  • Low assertiveness, uncertainty
  • Decreased stress resistance, nervousness
  • Anxiety, depressive moods
  • Forgetfulness

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

How can imbalances in hormonal levels affect my health?

Hormonal imbalances can lead to various symptoms such as chronic fatigue, skin issues, depression, menstrual irregularities, and potency problems.

What symptoms might indicate a need for this hormone test?

You should consider this test if you are experiencing mood swings, disrupted sleep patterns, infertility, or a variety of other symptoms and are struggling to identify their root cause.

Can this test help with diagnosing specific health conditions?

While the test can provide valuable insights into your hormone levels, it is not a diagnostic tool for specific health conditions. It can, however, help guide you and your healthcare provider in understanding your hormonal health.

What is the difference to the Male/Female Hormone Health Test?

With the Comprehensive Hormone Test, a diurnal cortisol test is included instead of the individual cortisol morning value test. This makes sense for a detailed clarification of the adrenal situation. Moreover, this test is also suitable for people who e.g. suffer from sleep disorders. During the day the cortisol level drops so that the body can slowly come to rest in the evening. If this is not the case and the "internal clock" of our adrenal glands is off, this can lead to difficulty falling asleep.

Why does it make sense to do the Comprehensive Hormone Test?

All hormones in the body affect each other. The body can even convert one hormone to another. When under stress, for instance, it has the ability to convert progesterone into cortisol. Consequently, the absence of progesterone in certain areas of the body can result in additional issues. This frequently gives rise to seemingly disparate problems that are actually interconnected. For a suitable therapy, it's crucial to comprehend the complete picture and begin addressing the root cause.
