What we analyse

12 biomarkers for an advanced hormone profile for women including male and female hormones, a full thyroid function test and a look at thyroid antibodies
LH
Hormones

Luteinising Hormone (LH) is produced by the pituitary gland and is important for male and female fertility. It governs the female menstrual cycle, peaking before ovulation, while in male bodies, it stimulates the production of testosterone.

FSH
Hormones

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is produced in the pituitary gland and is important for the production of eggs by the ovaries and the production of sperm by the testes. In the first half of the menstrual cycle, FSH stimulates the enlargement of the follicles in the ovaries. Each of these follicles will help to increase oestradiol levels.

Testosterone
Hormones

Testosterone is a hormone that causes male characteristics. Testosterone is produced in the male testes, and in much smaller amounts, in the female ovaries.  Although female bodies have much lower amounts of testosterone, it is important for many of the same reasons, playing a role in libido, the distribution of muscle and fat and the formation of red blood cells.

Oestradiol
Hormones

Oestradiol is a female steroid hormone, produced in the ovaries, and to a much lesser extent, in the male testes. Female oestradiol levels decline with age, culminating with menopause when the ovaries stop producing eggs.

Prolactin
Hormones

Prolactin is a hormone which is produced in the pituitary gland and plays a role in reproductive health. Its primary purpose is to stimulate milk production after childbirth, therefore during pregnancy and breastfeeding, prolactin levels can soar.

Free Androgen Index
Hormones

The free androgen index (FAI) is a calculation used to determine the amount of testosterone which is free (unbound) in the bloodstream. The FAI is a calculation based on the ratio of testosterone and SHBG and is a measure of the amount of testosterone that is available to act on the body's tissues.

Thyroglobulin Antibodies
Autoimmunity

This test looks for antibodies to thyroglobulin, a protein which is specific to the thyroid gland. Under normal circumstances it does not enter the bloodstream, but if your thyroid is inflamed or under attack from the body's own immune system, then thyroglobulin can be secreted and antibodies detected.

Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies
Autoimmunity

Thyroid peroxidase is an enzyme which is produced in the thyroid gland and is important for converting T4 to the biologically active T3. This test looks for antibodies to thyroid peroxidase which indicates that the body's immune system is attacking the thyroid gland and impairing its function.

TSH
Thyroid hormones

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates the thyroid gland to produce the two thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). All these levels are normally held in tight balance through negative feedback loops.

SHBG
Proteins

Most of the sex hormones - testosterone, oestrogen and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) - found in your blood are bound to Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) which means that they are unavailable to your cells. Measuring the level of SHBG in your blood gives important information about your levels of free or unbound hormones which are biologically active and available for use.

Free T4
Thyroid hormones

Thyroxine (T4) is one of two hormones produced by the thyroid gland. It works to speed up the rate of your metabolism. Most T4 is bound to carrier proteins in the blood, but it is only the free, or unbound T4 that is active in the body, which is measured in this test.

Free (T3)
Thyroid hormones

Triiodothyronine (T3) is the more active of the two thyroid hormones produced by the thyroid gland. Most T3 is bound to protein in the blood. Free T3 measures the level of T3 that is free, or unbound to protein, and is available to regulate metabolism.

Get ready for the test

Instructions
  • Please make sure to take your test in the morning
  • If you are taking a T3 containing medication, take your test in the hour prior to your dose of medication
  • Take this test between days 2 and 5 of your period. It can be taken at any time if you are not having periods
  • Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin, consult with your medical professional prior to taking the test
Accuracy
  • HRT and the contraceptive pill can affect the results of this test, taking the test during a break from these will give more accurate results
  • Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to handle hormone-gels or hormone-pessaries in the past 4 weeks
  • Avoid heavy exercise and eating meat-rich meals for 48 hours before your test
  • You should take this test before you take any vitamin or mineral supplements
  • If you want a more accurate result of your natural hormone status then this test should be taken at least 12 weeks after stopping any hormone replacement or contraceptive pill, implant or hormone IUD
  • If you are premenopausal and do not wish to become pregnant then please make sure that you use an alternative non-hormonal form of contraception
  • If you have not been through the menopause then we suggest waiting until your periods have re-established a regular cycle (for you) before taking this test

Clinical research

A randomised study by a board-certified Prof. Andrew Martusevich, PhD in Medicine and Biology of 314 bioniq users. Published in the peer-reviewed Journal "Archiv Euromedica" (Germany).

The study shows that there was a significant improvement of the iron plasma and total blood level as well as the ferritin level after taking bioniq.
