How we diagnose hormone imbalance

Hormones are complex, so the testing required to diagnose a hormone imbalance must be equally complex. At Peak Health Institute, we do comprehensive blood and urine testing. The testing that we prescribe depends on your health goals and your sex. For male patients, we usually only prescribe blood testing.

Who is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy?

  • You are post-menopausal and want to preserve your bone density
  • You’re experiencing pre-menopause symptoms
  • Hormone testing indicates an imbalance
  • You want to improve your quality of life
  • Low energy, exhaustion, fatigue
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Decreased muscle strength
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Weight gain, especially around the midsection
  • Thinning hair
  • Reduced mental clarity and difficulty concentrating
  • Dryer skin
  • Moodiness, anxiety, depression
  • Muscle and joint pain

If you do not meet these qualifications, don’t be discouraged. Your care provider will still develop a treatment plan with other therapies and modalities to help you achieve your health goals.
