What’s Included

  • TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) provides differential diagnosis of primary, secondary, and tertiary hypothyroidism. Thyroid issues are often directly linked to weight issues.
  • Testosterone: Low testosterone levels reduce muscle mass and calorie expenditure. Testosterone deficiency can cause weight gain over time. Testosterone impacts muscle athletic performance
  • Cortisol is known as the “stress hormone”. When you are stressed, cortisol levels rise causing higher insulin levels. Blood sugar drops causing one to crave sugary, fatty foods. Increased cortisol levels also cause abdominal fat.

  • Drink plenty of water in the hours prior to your specimen collection.
  • The best site for a finger puncture is just off the right or left side of the finger pad of the ring or pinkie finger. The tip of the finger should be avoided.
  • Make sure hands (fingers) are warm. Hold under running warm water for 30 seconds if necessary to increase circulation.
  • Be sure to place your finger on a firm surface, like a countertop or kitchen counter, to ensure that you get the proper depth when activating the safety lancet.
  • After lancing collection area, use “milking” motion to draw blood towards puncture area.
  • Be sure to get 5 good drops of blood into the blood collection device.
