The Apeiron Hormone Genomics Report looks at various enzymes that affect the hormone or endocrine systems of your body. Questions that are answered by this report include the following:
- What are my genetic propensities for various enzyme and receptor proteins that affect my thyroid function? How should my TSH lab results be interpreted? Do I have weaknesses in various enzymes necessary for optimal thyroid function?
- Do I have increased risk of auto-immune diseases, including Hashimoto's thyroiditis?
- What are my genetic propensities to produce, respond to, and breakdown melatonin?
- What are my genetic propensities to produce, respond to, and breakdown the stress hormone cortisol?
- What are my genetic propensities for to produce, respond to, and breakdown estrogen (which is an important hormone in both males and females - affecting brain, cardiovascular, and bone health)?
- What are my genetic propensities to produce, respond to, and breakdown testosterone (which is an important hormone in both males and females - affecting fat/muscle balance, brain, mood, libido, cardiovascular, and bone health)?
- What are my genetic propensities with regard to bone health and osteoporosis?
The good news is that answers to the above questions only identify what your statistical probabilities are for problems in the various areas. It is necessary to correlate the above propensities with your actual clinical symptoms (complaints) and laboratory values. But the biggest value in knowing the answers to the above questions is that it can guide precise epigenetic interventions (treatments) that specifically target the problem areas, rather than taking "shotgun" advice like "if you have this complaint, then some people have found that this prescription/treatment/supplement/herb will help; we don't know what will help you, but lets throw some mud on the wall and see what sticks; you have the following diagnosis, so let's prescribe the drug that the FDA and your insurance company has approved for this diagnosis."
