This is a detailed look at the markers which can help you optimise your training and performance - includes sports hormones and nutrition.
Why take this test?
This test offers an advanced understanding of key markers which can affect your fitness goals, whether in the gym or on the sports field. With insights into muscle mass (testosterone), anaemia (iron status and vitamin B12), as well as stress and over-training (cortisol), it also includes tests for important nutritional markers which, if low, can affect your training progress.
Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It is vital to survival given its role in functions such as immunity, regulating blood pressure and releasing insulin for blood sugar maintenance.
Raised cortisol levels (Cushing's syndrome) can lead to rapid weight gain, especially around the waist, excessive body hair (in women) and loss of libido and erectile dysfunction (in men).
Low levels of cortisol (Addison's disease) can lead to fatigue, nausea, skin discolouration and low blood pressure.
