Step 1: Order a Test Kit
This test includes the following hormones:
- Cortisol AM
- Progesterone 17OH
Step 2: Fill out Dr. Nick’s Evaluation and Setup Appointment
Step 3: One Month Later: Blood Spots
Blood Spot collected by finger stick with drops onto a card to be mailed to the lab in Oregon to be analyzed for the main hormones include:
Testosterone (lean body mass and libido)
Cortisol (stress hormone that controls hunger or addictions),
Estradiol E2 (excess causes fat retention or ED),
PSA (prostate health),
DHEA (brain health),
SHBG – Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (affects acne or transport of hormones)
Thyroid Panel Additions:
TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
TPO (Thyroid Peroxidase)
Step 4: Three Months Later – 24 Hour Urine
Advantages and Disadvantages:
Advantage – 24 Hour Urine offers the most accurate measurement for hormone analysis. Because hormones are always in a state of flux, seeing the total levels throughout the day is an ideal form of analysis.
Disadvantage – Not all hormones can be seen through 24 Hour Urine analysis and may require blood testing.
Advantage – 24 Hour Urine can see hormones none of the other forms of testing can see.
Disadvantage – This is the most costly solution.
