Are you overweight?

DrJulie George

Have you tried numerous diets and weight loss products with little results? Or did you lose the weight only for it to return plus a few extra unwanted pounds? Losing weight is a challenge. Despite what you hear with calories in vs. calories out, that doesn’t work for everybody. Trust me, I am one of them.

Medical Labs

When was the last time you had laboratory work completed? It is important to check your standard blood levels, inflammatory markers, thyroid markers, and possible other immune markers. There are some more advanced labs that can also be beneficial.

  • Thyroid levels are important to check on routine blood panels. If you are experiencing a under active thyroid then that can contribute to weight gain. We recommend a complete thyroid panel.

  • If you are experiencing a lot of inflammation then you may need a gentler approach. In fact, doing difficult workouts could be getting in your way of losing weight. This is because of the stress hormone cortisol. For more advanced testing we can test your cortisol x4 to determine how your body is handling the stress hormone throughout the day. Routine blood work can test basic inflammatory markers.

  • Having a food sensitivity can cause you unwanted weight gain and/or difficulty losing weight. Food sensitivities can do a lot of harm on the body including your gut. Gut health is very important to your overall health. Food sensitivities are usually not life long. There are several treatment options we use for repairing GI function and decreasing food sensitivities. We offer several different food sensitivity companies for testing options.

  • You could be hanging on to unwanted pounds due to unbalanced hormones. We have the ability to test your hormone levels. We recommend salivary or urine hormone testing panels.

  • Environmental toxin exposures can contribute to weight gain and/or a harder time to lose weight. Depending on your lifestyle and exposure risk then testing for phthalates, parabens, solvents, heavy metals, glyphosates, and others may be recommended.
