Urinary neurotransmitter testing provides an overall assessment of the body’s ability to secrete and metabolize neurotransmitters and are representative of whole body levels. Neurotransmitters are secreted all through the body, in neurons of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. The enzymes, cofactors and precursors in neurotransmitter metabolism in general are the same in the periphery and in the central nervous system. Therefore, alterations in urinary neurotransmitter levels assessed in urine provide important clinical information, and may be associated with many symptoms including:
- cognitive and mood concerns
- diminished drive
- fatigue and sleep difficulties
Associations between urinary neurotransmitter levels and health conditions have been documented in scientific literature and may provide valuable insights as part of a comprehensive health assessment.
- Mood concerns, such as depression, anxiety
- Diminished energy/fatigue
- Cognitive concerns such as forgetfulness, inattention, brain fog
- Addiction, dependency
- Obsessions and cravings
- Chronic illness, immune deficiency
- Low libido, sexual dysfunction
