What is a hormonal imbalance?
A hormonal imbalance happens when your body has too much or too little of one or more hormones. Sometimes these imbalances happen for reasons we can't control. Other times, they can be a response to stress or other lifestyle changes. Hormonal imbalances can impact your entire body but common signs include sudden changes to your mood or appetite, irregular periods, or problems sleeping.

About this test
What this test measures
Hormones are the messengers of your bodies. They act as signals that travel through your bloodstream, telling your cells and organs what to do and when to do it. With at least 50 different identified hormones in our body, it's no surprise that even small imbalances can negatively impact your health and emotional wellbeing. Your test measures 8 important markers of hormonal health:
- Estradiol - Helps maintain eggs within the ovaries. Elevated levels may correlate with difficulties conceiving.
- Progesterone - Helps prepare your uterus to receive a fertilized egg, and also plays a role maintaining pregnancy, regulating blood pressure, mood, and sleep. Decreased levels may indicate menopause, ovarian complications, or a miscarriage.
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH) - Helps release eggs from the ovaries. Tracking LH may help your chances of successfully conceiving.
- Follicle-stimulating Hormone (FSH) - Indicator of ovarian function. Elevated levels may indicate complications with the health of your eggs.
- Cortisol - Stress hormone that regulates mood, motivation, and fear. Elevated levels may indicate a health complication that is causing your body to create improper quantities of the hormone.
- Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH) - Hormone that triggers your thyroid to produce and release its own hormones. Elevated levels may interfere with ovulation.
- Thyroxine - Indicator of how well your thyroid is functioning. Your thyroid produces hormones that help regulate weight, body temperature, heart health, muscle strength, and mood.
- Free Testosterone - Form of testosterone found in the body. Decreased levels may cause a number of physical and emotional health complications.

How long does the testing process take?

Will my insurance cover the cost of the test?
Cue tests are not currently covered by insurance, but we are actively working with health insurance companies to get coverage for Cue Health solutions. However, many Cue Care tests are FSA/HSA eligible, which means that your health benefits may be able to cover Cue. We recommend connecting with your insurance provider directly to inquire more about their policies and your plan. We work hard to keep our pricing accessible, and in most cases, the price of a Cue Care test is similar to the out-of-pocket costs for testing in a clinical setting.
