ZRT Laboratory introduces the Sleep Balance Profile – the first four-point test offering a complete diurnal pattern of melatonin and cortisol to help patients struggling with hormone-related sleep imbalances.
When the master stress hormone cortisol is chronically elevated, particularly at night, it inhibits sleep and leads to lower melatonin levels. In addition to stress-related sleep disturbances, melatonin levels naturally decline as we age – triggering further imbalances.
Changes like these often result in multiple sleep disorders – from frequent waking to chronic insomnia. Making it no wonder the CDC has found that nearly 9 million resort to prescription sleep aids to get through the night – most of whom are females 50 or older.
Hormone testing allows you to find the source of troublesome sleep problems, offering long-term treatment solutions.
If the following symptoms sound familiar, your patients are likely to benefit from hormone testing:
Without enough sleep the brain can’t process information, focus or respond quickly. Mood and memory capsize, which makes us more susceptible to infections and depression. It also increases long-term risks for obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
If you would like more information please e-mail us and we will forward a report and some additional information regarding this testing. We will offer complete testing of single hormones as well as comprehensive health profiles to test your risk of many diseases caused by hormone imbalance.
All information is private and will not be distributed to any other party.
* You will take the samples yourself and then mail them to the laboratory with the prepaid enclosed envelope. The laboratory will then mail you back your results.
