Do you feel like you are trapped inside this body?  


 You are not alone! Many find it difficult to attain ideal weight despite their best efforts. Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, and where the body stores fat.  For example, estrogen and progesterone imbalances result in weight gain in hips and thighs, while insulin and cortisol imbalances result in weight gain in the abdominal area.

Extra weight is a symptom of an imbalance in your body.

When it comes to weight management, each body is unique. 

The home testing kit from ZRT Laboratory evaluates blood sugar metabolism, insulin, inflammation, adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones, as well as Vitamin D, more hormone-like than vitamin.
