Weight Gain Blood Test - More Information
The weight gain test panel, also known as a weight gain lab test panel, weight gain blood test, and blood test for unexplained weight gain, checks blood tests that might identify causes of abnormal weight gain. This weight gain blood test panel includes the CBC blood test, CMP blood test, cortisol test, DHEA test, estradiol test, hemoglobin A1c test, insulin test, SHBG test, testosterone total and free test, TSH test, vitamin B12 test, and vitamin D test.
Abnormal weight gain is a cause of stress and concern for many people. While some causes of weight gain are obvious (e.g. eating too much), unexplained weight gain can be caused by a number of biological causes that can be treated. Lifestyle causes of abnormal weight gain include lack of sleep, stress and depression. From a lab testing perspective, abnormal weight gain can be the result of low thyroid function, insulin resistance, vitamin deficiencies, and other causes. This weight gain test panel checks for a number of blood test markers related to those conditions in addition to providing general wellness screening that might identify other rarer abnormalities.
