What is a metabolism test?

Metabolism is the process within your body that converts food to energy. Your metabolism influences your energy levels, weight, body composition, and even mood.

Thyroid health, which can strongly influence metabolism, is measured with our Metabolism Panel. We measure the primary indicator of thyroid health, TSH. Everlywell also offers a more comprehensive thyroid test should you be interested.

In addition to TSH, two additional hormones that are primary influences on body composition, physical performance, and other functions are measured with the Metabolism Panel.

Testosterone influences muscle production and athletic performance. Obviously, testosterone levels will be much higher in men than in women.

Cortisol is the primary stress hormone and promotes fat storage, mobilization of blood sugar, muscle breakdown, and other potentially detrimental effects.

As always with Everlywell, easy-to-interpret test results will be available to you (and, if you choose, your physician) online.

Who should take this test?

If you are concerned about your metabolism, energy levels, or are experiencing unexpected weight loss or weight gain, you should consider our Metabolism Test.

What your results will tell you about TSH, cortisol, and testosterone

Your results will contain your personal levels of TSH, Cortisol, Testosterone, and whether they are low, normal, or high. Abnormalities in any one of these hormones may require further testing for that specific endocrine gland function.

EverlyWell can provide suggestions for lifestyle changes that can jumpstart your health. As always, we encourage you to share your results with your doctor, who can provide more specific guidance.
