The Skinny Center begins your weight loss journey with its exclusive Health 365 Weight Loss Panel test. This test will identify any imbalances in your thyroid, reproductive and stress hormones, which can impact your ability to maintain a healthy weight.
What does Health 365 Analyze?
1) Measures and Analyzes broad panel-based biomolecules and DNA genetic markers.
2) Analyzes 20 blood base biomolecules, which include cortisol (the stress hormone), lepton (the appetite suppressor hormone), ghrelin (the hunger hormone), IGF-1, DHEA Sulfate, Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Testosterone and Estrdiol.
3) Analyze fat soluble vitamins (A,D, and E) water soluble vitamins (B6,B9, B12, and C), Minerals ( Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium), Hemoglobin A1C, Heratocrit, and sex-hormone-binding hormon Globulin.
4) Tests for key/genetic mutations that impair how the body metabolizes certain hormones and vitamins that affect your ability to lose weight. A sample of these mutations include Factor V and MTHFR—identifying these genetic mutations is imperative. Mutations can cause serious health risks and serious weight gain.

YOUR CHOICE WHERE
Your time and convenience are important priorities. The Skinny center will arrange a phlebotomist to the venue of your choice for your blood draw. We have tailored our services to fit the need of the home bound mom or dad, the busy executive, as well as the fragile senior.
This test may be done fasting or 2-6 hours after eating. Both ways provide valuable information, though 2-6 hours after a meal provides a more realistic assessment of the state of your blood in everyday life. Stay hydrated and take your medications as prescribed. If you are supplementing with any hormones, we suggest taking them approximately 2 hours prior to having your blood drawn to see peak levels. Hormones are best drawn between 8-10 AM. Hormonal contraceptives can interfere with progesterone and estrogen results. Ideally, cortisol should be checked in the morning, but later in the day is fine.
