Neuroendocrine Testing helps provide an integrated, personalized approach to patient care. Patients are able to get answers to complex, chronic conditions. With this type of lab testing we are able to dive beneath surface symptoms to underlying causes, and investigate the root cause of disturbances to the nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system.
Neuroendocrine Testing is utilized to help optimize neurotransmitter levels, helping balance a patient's nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that facilitate communication between neurons. This has an effect on every cell, tissue, and organ system within the body.
When neurotransmitter levels are out of balance this communication is altered and a wide variety of clinical symptoms can result. Effects can be both physical and emotional, and affect a patient's mental performance, mood, energy level, and physiological responses. The nervous system plays such an integral role in the body that neurological imbalances underlie many of the most common symptoms and conditions seen today.
