About the test
Experiencing unexplainable weight or energy changes?
Free testosterone refers to the testosterone that is not attached to proteins. Total testosterone includes free testosterone and testosterone bound to the proteins in the blood. While it’s often regarded as the primary male sex hormone, testosterone is essential for bone density, libido, body fat distribution, and muscle mass support across all sexes.
Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced in the adrenal glands and released in response to stressors like illness and exercise. While it’s often referred to as the “stress hormone,” cortisol also has many other bodily roles, including blood sugar and energy metabolism regulation. High cortisol is associated with increased weight. In most people, cortisol levels are highest in the morning and lowest in the middle of the night.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroid stimulating hormone, or TSH, is produced by the pituitary gland. It’s responsible for regulating hormones T3 and T4, which are produced by the thyroid gland. TSH is considered the most sensitive marker for screening for thyroid diseases and conditions. Too much thyroid hormone can lead to weight loss, while too little can cause weight gain.
