HPA Stress Profiles

Note: In the December 2016 update to the BioHealth test menu, Adrenal Stress Profiles were replaced with HPA Stress Profiles due to important upgrades in cortisol and DHEA-S testing. The old Adrenal Stress Profiles remain available at the same fee as the HPA Stress Profiles. If you need Adrenal Stress Profile kits, you can order them here. These panels include cortisol, DHEA-S, estradiol, estriol, estrone, melatonin, progesterone, testosterone, and secretory IgA. CAR is the rise in cortisol levels observed at 30 minutes post-awakening (approximately 35-60% above the waking value) followed by an expected decline one hour after waking. The behavior of cortisol is an important physiological response to anticipation of the day ahead and is a key indicator of HPA axis reactivity. The waking, 30 minute, and 60 minute cortisol results comprise something of a "mini stress test." Research shows that combining CAR testing with diurnal cortisol rhythm is a far superior way to assess HPA axis function than diurnal cortisol alone.

GI Screens

BioHealth’s microbiology department uses advanced staining and antigen techniques to recover pathogens without the artifically high results often seen in other, less time-proven, laboratory methods. True O&P x 3 (not poolings) include Trichrome stains. Panel #401H is most frequently used as it includes antigen detection of the Helicobacter pylori bacterium.

Ova & Parasites x 3, Antigens of Giardia lamblia & Cryptosporidium parvum, Bacterial Culture, Yeast Culture, Occult Blood

Ova & Parasites x 3, Antigens of Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium parvum, Helicobacter pylori, Bacterial Culture, Yeast Culture, Occult Blood

Ova & Parasites x 3 Examination, Protozoa, Flatworms, Roundworms, Miscellaneous

Visual and automated identification of bacteria (including but not limited to), Citrobacter, Enterobacter, Enterococcus, Escherichia, Klebsiella, Proteus, Pseudomonas

Visual and automated identification of yeast (including but not limited to) Candida

Giardia lamblia antigen (Stool)

Cryptosporidium parvum antigen (Stool)

Clostridium difficile: Colitis toxins (Standalone or Add-On to 401 or 401H)

Helicobacter pylori Stool Antigen (HpSA)

SIBO

Using a breath test to diagnose SIBO is simple, non-invasive and inexpensive. A breath test specifies which gases are present, in addition to the location and severity of bacterial overgrowth. The 3-hour test is the standard approach in functional medicine.

Lactulose challenge with 10 samples of breath.

Female Hormones

Run the #208 for mapping the cycle. The #209 is used to establish baseline levels of hormones in the post-menopausal woman; hormone levels on a particular day of the menstrual cycle in premenopausal women; and to monitor the efficacy of adjunctive hormone therapies.

17 Estradiol, 17 Progesterone, 2 Testosterone (AM)

DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone, Testosterone

DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estriol, Estrone, Testosterone, Progesterone

Metabolism

The #101 is a convenient and cost-effective screen of some of the body’s most fundamental functional systems: detoxification, digestion, and antioxidant capacity. The profile provides data that can guide in the management of disorders related to chronic stress. It measures common impacts and sources of dysfunction, contributing to the investigation of a myriad of health complaints.

Immunity

At this time, our menu provides on marker under the category of Immunity, the powerful secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) analyte. You can also find sIgA as an add-on to HPA Stress Profiles.
