Bone health is critical to your overall wellness. Hormone testing can provide you the tools to best protect your bones by demonstrating your unique hormone profile. Many hormones play a role in the metabolism of bone, and balancing these hormones can greatly improve the health of your bones by preventing fractures and increasing your overall quality of life. Hormones impact your bone health as follows:
Studies show that estrogen and progesterone supplementation slows bone loss;
Testosterone deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis;
High levels of thyroid hormone increase the risk of bone loss; and
Increased cortisol levels are linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis.
