Some sites suggest you don’t even need the guidance of a medical professional.

Hormone Hype

You’ve seen the hype on TV, heard it on the radio, read it in magazines, found it on the Internet.

Hormone testing and hormonal supplements are the miracle cure for every physical and emotional ailment in your life. If this sounds too good to be true—it is.

The fact is that the complex interaction of hormones in our bodies does have a major impact on how we feel. But the hype neglects a crucial element: the need for real scientific testing, expert analysis and skilled interpretation of your hormone profiling results.

Some sites suggest you don’t even need the guidance of a medical professional. Yet it is the trained, qualified healthcare professional who best understands your total health. This is the person to trust with your hormone health. This is the person who can and should evaluate which, if any, hormone therapy is best for you.

Websites offering online, self-diagnosis quizzes that claim to determine your medical condition have just one goal: selling you expensive hormonal supplements – the more, the better.

Would You Trust an Online Quiz to Treat a Heart Condition?

How wise would that be? If you had concerns about a heart ailment, you’d seek the professional services of a specialist, a cardiologist. Your hormone system is every bit as complicated and challenging as your circulatory system.

The Rhein Labs Approach

Rhein Labs, founded in 1987, is an independent clinical and research laboratory dedicated to comprehensive hormone assessment conducted via 24-hour urinary steroid hormone profiling. When you’ve accumulated your 24-hour urine sample, you send a portion directly to Rhein Labs. Here, its components are measured, analyzed and interpreted by our clinical staff. The analysis is returned to your healthcare provider in a chart that shows your complete hormonal profile. Now, your provider can make informed recommendations about your situation.

Rhein Labs does not sell, endorse or recommend any kind of supplements or therapies. We don’t offer on-line quizzes. We don’t diagnose. We don’t treat. What we do is provide the most complete, sophisticated, well-interpreted hormonal analysis available today to your healthcare provider.

Other Types of Testing Fall Short

72169The single best source for determining your comprehensive hormone profile is a 24-hour USHP. The science in the field overwhelmingly confirms this fact. Methods using saliva and blood spot samples, even when employed in combination, do not paint a complete picture of the complex production, interaction and balance of your hormones. That is why Rhein Labs’ profile works only with 24-hour urine samples. This is why you should insist upon the 24-hour USHP test for your comprehensive hormone profiling.

Tell your physician that you want Rhein Labs to measure, analyze and interpret your hormone profile.
