because testing does not
interrupt sleep

ZRT Laboratory introduces the Sleep Balance Profile – the first four-point test offering a complete diurnal pattern of melatonin and cortisol to help patients struggling with hormone-related sleep imbalances.

Exploring the Sleep Hormone Connection

When the master stress hormone cortisol is chronically elevated, particularly at night, it inhibits sleep and leads to lower melatonin levels. In addition to stress-related sleep disturbances, melatonin levels naturally decline as we age – triggering further imbalances.

Changes like these often result in multiple sleep disorders – from frequent waking to chronic insomnia. Making it no wonder the CDC has found that nearly 9 million resort to prescription sleep aids to get through the night – most of whom are females 50 or older.

Hormone testing allows you to find the source of troublesome sleep problems, offering long-term treatment solutions.

Don’t Let Sleep Disorders Go Untreated

If the following symptoms sound familiar, your patients are likely to benefit from hormone testing:

  • Can’t get to sleep or stay asleep
  • Morning or evening fatigue
  • Poor concentration and/or impaired performance
  • Feeling “tired but wired”
  • High stress and irritability
  • Increased hunger / cravings

Without enough sleep the brain can’t process information, focus or respond quickly. Mood and memory capsize, which makes us more susceptible to infections and depression. It also increases long-term risks for obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
