Urinary neurotransmitter (NT) levels provide an overall assessment of your body's ability to make and break down neurotransmitters and are representative of whole body levels. Whole body neurotransmitter levels correlate with symptoms and provide a valuable tool for achieving balance and wellbeing.
This panel contains the following 6 neurotransmitters:
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that play an important role in sustaining good mental and physical health since they are responsible for the highs and lows of feelings. Through their influence on the pituitary gland, they are the connection between your emotions and production of hormones such as cortisol, testosterone, and estrogen. In turn, your hormones can also influence neurotransmitter production.
When functioning properly the neurotransmitter system has natural checks and balances. However, alternations in the six neurotransmitters found in this panel play a significant role in contributing to symptoms such as cognitive disorders, depression, anxiety, diminished drive, fatigue and sleep difficulties, cravings, addictions, and pain.
Since testing for and optimizing your neurotransmitter function can have a profound influence on your overall health and well-being, ordering this panel may be the first step to feeling better and enjoying your life again!
When your kit arrives, please read all instructions prior to your anticipated collection date. A 12-hour fast is required for this test. Do not exercise, eat, or drink alcohol/caffeine 12 hours prior to the test (you may drink water until bedtime). Morning of the collection: Do not eat or drink any liquids (except up to 8 oz. of water is okay in the morning before your collection). Avoid tobacco, exercise, and do not take any amino acid supplements until after the sample collection. Menstruating women should not collect a urine sample during their period. Samples must reach the lab within 7 days of collection. If the sample is rejected because it is too old, you may incur a kit replacement fee. Collect on a Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Do not collect on a Thursday or Friday. Plan to ship your sample on the same day you collect. If you can't ship it on the same day, your sample must be kept in a freezer until you can ship it on the next business day.
Do not collect your first urine void of the day. Any night time urination should not be considered the first void of the morning. Collect a midstream specimen from the second urine void of the day and between 1 and 4 hours after getting out of bed for the day. Do not urinate directly in the tube. A small cotton ball containing preservative has been placed in the sample tube to maintain the specimen. Do not remove this preservative. Use the pipette to transfer urine from the collection cup to the sample tube. Fill the tube to the "10 ml" mark, almost full. Close tube tightly to ensure a good seal. Gently rock the tube back and forth for 3 to 4 seconds to mix urine with the preservative. Write your name, time, and date on the sample label, on the requisition form, and on the bag. Peel the back of the sample label and stick it on the sample tube. If you can't ship the same day you collect, freeze the filled sample tube and ship it the next business day. The kit box has a prepaid shipping label on the bottom of the box.
