The comprehensive 24 hour urine hormone profile provides considerably more information about the hormone status of an individual than can be gleaned from individual measurements. In fact, we devised our profile, in contrast to so-called panels, to furnish a quasi picture, the essence of which is greater than the sum of its parts. Due to the large number and complex nature of the metabolic pathways of steroid hormones, profiling has been a goal since the late 1960's.

Gas chromatography coupled with unequivocal identification and quantification of steroids in urine via mass spectrometry (GC/MS) has been the preferred approach to profiling. In fact, it is this approach which is used to detect illicit steroid hormone use amongst athletes including those participating in the Olympics. However, this strategy has largely been confined to universities and medical schools, owing to high equipment and personnel costs associated with this still rather sophisticated equipment and methodology.

Striving to make state-of-the-art hormone profiling widely available we offer research quality testing to the ever growing community of health care professionals and their patients who recognize the importance of the delicate balance inherent in steroid hormone production and metabolism. It should be pointed out that urine testing is still considered to be the "gold standard" upon which the performance of many immunoassays is based. It is the immunoassays which are used in routine clinical testing of individual hormones. A profile using this latter approach would be prohibitively expensive costing upwards of one thousand dollars.

Thus, whenever three or more hormones are of interest a complete profile becomes a more cost-effective means of obtaining the desired results.

Here is what is included in our 24 hour test:

27 different hormones will be tested for within the 24 hour urine hormone profile.
