Neurotransmitter Testing Menu

Neurotransmitter imbalances can be easily identified with a single noninvasive urine sample. Testing provides a tool to understand each patient’s specific neuroendocrine imbalances, which can be corrected with targeted nutritional therapy, BHRT, diet, and lifestyle interventions. Because it is especially important to understand the interrelationships of the neurotransmitters as well as their relationships with adrenal and sex hormones, an optimal approach measures each of the neurotransmitter levels identified here in addition to a full hormone panel.

Labrix Clinical Services is now proud to offer neurotransmitter testing. View available neurotransmitter and hormone combination panels here!

Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol (E3), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T), DHEA (D), Cortisol x 4 (C), Serotonin (S), GABA (GA), Dopamine (DP), Epinephrine (E), Norepinephrine (NE), Glutamate (GLU), Glycine (GLY), Histamine (HST), Phenethylamine (PEA)

The NeuroHormone Complete Plus panel includes estrone (E1) and estriol (E3) plus the estrogen quotient. The addition of neurotransmitters to the Comprehensive Plus hormone-only panel provides insight on how HPA axis function may be contributing to symptom manifestation such as mood swings, fatigue, and pain. Because the research on the estrogen quotient and the protective properties of estriol has not been done with men, this panel is currently recommended for women only. This panel should be considered for patients who have:

  • Increased risk of developing breast cancer
  • History of breast cancer or other hormonally sensitive cancers
  • Personal or strong family history of autoimmune disease
  • PCOS
  • Estrogen dominance related symptoms

Estradiol (E2), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T), DHEA (D), Cortisol x 4 (C), Serotonin (S), GABA (GA), Dopamine (DP), Epinephrine (E), Norepinephrine (NE), Glutamate (GLU), Glycine (GLY), Histamine (HST), Phenethylamine (PEA)

This panel is the best starting point for initial assessment of hormonal status, adrenal function and neurotransmitter balance. This panel is important for both men and women, providing baseline and monitoring information for patients of all ages. It is especially useful in individuals who are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Mood disorders, depression, anxiety
  • Addiction, dependency
  • Fatigue, lack of stamina, insomnia
  • Chronic illness, immune deficiency
  • Cognitive confusion, learning challenges, declining memory
  • Weight issues, appetite control
  • Low libido, sexual dysfunction
  • PMS, menopause, andropause
  • Fibromyalgia, chronic pain

DHEA (D), Cortisol x 4 (C), Serotonin (S), GABA (GA), Dopamine (DP), Epinephrine (E), Norepinephrine (NE), Glutamate (GLU), Glycine (GLY), Histamine (HST), Phenethylamine (PEA)

This panel provides a comprehensive view of HPA axis function. Included is a full diurnal cortisol pattern, DHEA, and 6 primary neurotransmitters (inhibitory and excitatory). Symptoms that would indicate ordering this panel include those shown for the Adrenal Function panel plus:

  • Mood disorders, depression, anxiety
  • Addiction, dependency
  • Chronic illness, immune deficiency
  • Low libido, sexual dysfunction

Serotonin (S), GABA (GA), Dopamine (DP), Epinephrine (E), Norepinephrine (NE), Glutamate (GLU), Glycine (GLY), Histamine (HST), Phenethylamine (PEA)

The NeuroBasic panel is a good tool for monitoring therapeutic interventions of neurotransmitter imbalances previously tested, or when symptoms indicate an imbalance. Includes inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters.
