Our Health 365 blood test is specifically designed for women in their 40s looking to lose weight safely and effectively, as well as manage their current health conditions. This medical weight loss test can reveal specific biomarkers that often signal an impending illness. Health 365 covers weight loss abnormalities, thyroid health, liver function, cholesterol status and nutritional markers. Understanding your results will give you the confidence to take steps towards a leaner and healthier lifestyle.
Checking your thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) lets you know if your thyroid gland is working effectively. Thyroid conditions are much more common in women and can cause symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, low mood and problems with your skin and hair. Some women experience few or no symptoms, especially in the early stages.
The test also looks at your liver and kidney function and your cholesterol status. You can find out if your liver is going through any changes, such as fatty liver disease, which may be related to your diet or being overweight. A diet high in saturated fats or excess alcohol consumption can also lead to raised cholesterol levels. Over time, this can cause fatty deposits to accumulate in the arteries and increase your risk of heart disease and stroke.
We’ll also check your levels of Ghrelin (Hunger hormone), Leptin (appetite suppressor hormone) and Cortisol (stress hormone);ferritin levels, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. Low levels of ferritin and vitamin B12 can cause anemia and lead to symptoms, such as “just not feeling well,” or feeling weak and tired all the time. Young women are more prone to iron deficiency anemia due to menstrual bleeding, and some people may have few or no symptoms, especially in the early stages. A vitamin D deficiency can also affect your energy levels and many women in their 40s are found to be deficient in vitamin D, especially throughout the winter.
The link between hormones, hunger, appetite, stress, and weight loss are undeniable. We have developed a science-based natural balancing hormone program for women who struggle with weight loss — no hormones, drugs or surgery! Understanding this link between hormone levels and weight loss has helped thousands of our patients to not only lose weight, but also to keep it off.
