How long does it take to receive the results of a weight loss blood test?
The turnaround time for receiving the results varies depending on the specific test you choose. Typically, your results will take 5 business days from when your blood sample gets collected.
Why should I consider getting hormone testing for weight loss?
If you've been trying to lose weight intentionally without success, you might want to consider our Stubborn Belly Buster to get to the root cause. Hormonal imbalances and other health conditions make it much harder to lose unwanted weight.
On the other hand, if you are experiencing unexplained weight loss and want to understand its potential reasons, our Unexpected Weight Loss Check can be a great tool to guide further evaluation and treatment. It helps uncover any underlying medical conditions or imbalances that may be causing your weight change.
What is metabolic testing for weight loss?
A weight loss test is a comprehensive blood test specifically designed to help you lose those extra pounds when you're unsure where or don't know how to start. By checking critical biomarkers, you'll be equipped with data to start your weight loss journey better informed, as it'll let you know if there's any condition hindering your weight loss progress that you need to pay special attention to.
What biomarkers are included in weight loss testing?
A test for weight loss involves a series of science-backed blood tests that analyze critical components in your blood, such as:
- Inflammatory markers - like CRP, cortisol & ANA
- Metabolic markers - like ferritin & hemoglobin A1c
- Vitamins & minerals - like vitamin D, calcium & potassium
- Hormone levels - testosterone, estrogen, insulin & thyroid hormones
Can a metabolism test for weight loss detect serious health conditions?
Yes. Your metabolism refers to how well your body uses energy and nutrients to perform different functions. These tests assess hormone levels, metabolic markers, nutrient deficiencies, inflammation, and organ function, to help in the diagnosis of underlying metabolism and health-related conditions such as:
- Thyroid disorders
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Liver or kidney issues
- Autoimmune diseases
These conditions can make it harder to lose weight. We recommend you discuss your results with your trusted health professional to have a better understanding of your individual situation.
Will the results of blood tests for weight loss provide me with a treatment plan?
Yes and no. The primary purpose of these tests is to understand your overall health and potential imbalances that may be sabotaging your weight loss efforts. But, these results alone will not provide you with a treatment plan but information to help form one. The results of these tests can guide your doctor or help you decide on the best treatment plan, if necessary.
Are weight loss tests suitable for individuals intentionally trying to lose weight?
Yes, this test can provide you with valuable insights to manage your weight. By analyzing various health markers, like hormones, inflammatory markers & organ function markers, it offers a deep understanding of your metabolism and inner workings. With this information, you can target your weight management strategies or address potential health conditions before starting your weight loss plan.
If this is what you're looking for, you might like our Stubborn Belly Buster.
Could metabolic testing for weight loss be beneficial if I am experiencing unexplained weight loss?
Yes. Unexplained weight loss can be a sign of a serious health issue or imbalance that hasn't been properly addressed. These tests can help you identify the potential cause of your unexpected weight loss to help you treat the condition, if that's your case. Some potential risks you might have if left untreated are:
- Nutrient deficiencies: Rapid or prolonged unexplained weight loss can lead to inadequate nutrient intake.
- Weakened immune function: Unintended weight loss can compromise your immune system, making you more susceptible to infections and illnesses.
- Loss of muscle mass: This weight loss may lead to muscle mass loss and consequently impact strength, mobility, and overall physical function.
- Increased risk of complications: Unexplained weight loss may impact the normal functioning of organs and systems in the body, potentially leading to all types of complications.
