Sleep Balance Test

Several key hormones rule the sleep-wake cycle, and restful sleep demands on those being in balance. With an estimated 60 million Americans suffering from some degree of insomnia - whether that be early waking or the inability to get to sleep and stay asleep - the need to measure and monitor these hormone levels is paramount.

The first four-point test profile offering a complete diurnal pattern of melatonin and cortisol.

Advantages:

  • No more 2:00am wake-ups – morning collection reflects overnight melatonin levels
  • More accurate results because testing does not interrupt sleep
  • Measures cortisol and melatonin at 4 time points throughout the day to provide a true 24-hour sleep-wake pattern
  • Discreet dried urine collection eliminates the inconvenience of jug urine collection

SLEEP DISTURBANCES

60 million suffer symptoms of insomnia. Find out whether hormones contribute to your sleep loss.

In a perfect world, the master stress hormone cortisol should be in sync with the master sleep hormone melatonin. Each hormone counter-balances the other in a precise rhythm – when cortisol is high melatonin should be low, and when melatonin is high cortisol should be low.

For many, this rhythm is out of balance. With an estimated 60 million Americans suffering from some degree of sleep loss, it’s surprising that many are still unaware of the connection between hormones and sleep.

The Downside of Chronic Sleep Loss

According to the Department of Health & Human Services, over a third of U.S. adults report daytime sleepiness so severe it interferes with work, decision making and social functioning.

In fact, depression, obesity and diabetes are just three of the long term consequences of sleep deprivation – defined as six or fewer hours per night.

Common hormone-related causes of sleep loss often involve the following scenarios:

High Cortisol
Results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired & increased belly fat

Low Melatonin
Results in excessive fatigue, depression, anxiety & insomnia

Neurotransmitter Imbalance
Changes in sex steroid hormone levels during menopause can impact neurotransmitter levels, leading to recurring sleep issues.
