Neurotransmitter testing may be applicable to both male and female patients. Expression of the following symptoms can indicate neurotransmitter imbalances.
• Anxiety / Depression
• Adrenal dysfunction / Fatigue
• Poor sleep / Loss of mental focus, or cognitive fog
• ADD and ADHD
• Addiction or dependency
• Loss of appetite control
• Compulsive behavior / Cravings
• Low libido / Sexual dysfunction
Adrenal hormones, sex hormones, and neurotransmitters are functionally interrelated. Changes in sex hormones and adrenal hormones can lead to neurotransmitter imbalances. In turn, neurotransmitter imbalances can affect hormone function. Including neurotransmitters with hormone panels provides a more comprehensive view of the body’s functional neuroendocrine status, this interrelationship, and the associated factors that may be contributing to symptoms.
