Weight Management FAQ's:
How does thyroid dysfunction affect weight gain?
If you have hypothyroidism, often referred to as an underactive thyroid, it can slow down your metabolism making it more difficult to lose weight.
How is this test performed?
Our test is a combination of a dried blood spot sample as well as 4 saliva samples, collected throughout one day.
Why should I test my HbA1c levels?
Hemoglobin A1c is an important test that is used to help diagnose diabetes. For people who are overweight, an elevated HbA1c level could be an indicator of early diabetes or poor blood sugar control.
Can this test be used by both men and women?
Yes, this test can be used by both men and women of any age.
What are some tips to make my blood spot collection easier?
To encourage blood flow, try running your hands under warm water and/or rubbing your hands together or swinging your arms before nicking your finger. Also, make sure that your hand is below your waist when you begin collection to allow gravity to assist with blood flow.
Why is it better to test cortisol levels 4 times instead of just the morning?
Your morning cortisol levels may be perfectly normal in the morning and then rise or drop throughout the day so testing four times in one day gives a better overall reading of your cortisol production.
