What is all included in the Weight Management Test Package?
Blood tests, which are typically done measure general blood chemistry, liver and kidney function, blood count, insulin sensitivity, thyroid hormone levels, and cholesterol.

Why Weight Management Test Package Advised?
Because weight regulation is complex, there is no one blood test to check your metabolism. Blood tests are checked to determine if there may be imbalances that can contribute to a slower metabolism. For example, if insulin resistance is found by testing your fasting insulin and glucose levels, this can be a contributor to unwanted weight gain in some individuals. The good news is, if insulin resistance is present, diet changes can help.
Thyroid hormone is also checked, especially the TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone). The TSH is the master regulator of the entire thyroid system. Low thyroid hormone levels can contribute to small amounts of weight gain. However, when the TSH level is abnormal, this is more likely to result from the weight gain than a cause. Your doctor can help you decipher the meaning of abnormal thyroid hormone levels and what action would need to be taken next.
