Another one of the tests that I run through my clinic is the Neurotransmitter Profile test. This is a urine test, assessing levels of six neurotransmitters: serotonin, GABA, dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline, and glutamate. These six neurotransmitters are the most researched in relation to their effects on mood disorders, hormones, sleep, glucose/insulin balance, pain perception, appetite, and cognitive function. The report format that I provide my clients include a correlation analysis section, which relates the patients’ symptoms with their corresponding lab results. Low or high levels of neurotransmitters are observed in various mental health disorders, such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Parkinson’s disease and panic attacks.
If you would like to discuss testing with me then I'd love to hear from you. You can contact me here.
