Patient Says: I always feel moody and restless, and I can’t get enough sleep.
Neurotransmitter Test Says: You have low levels of serotonin and dopamine as well as an elevated level of glutamate.
Depression is often characterized as a chemical imbalance in the brain. However, the effects of depression can be felt emotionally, physically, and cognitively. The warning signs of depression can vary from person to person, but they are still important indicators when trying to help yourself or a loved one who may be suffering from depression. If you’ve noticed changes in mood that are very different from before, this could be an early indicator that something isn’t right. If more and more of your peers and family are noticing that you are becoming more and more irritated over the smallest things, this could be a sign of something more. However, being irritable can be normal – sometimes when there is a lot of stress in our lives, we tend to take it out on others.
Our experts at Trilogy Medical accurately test biomarkers and neurotransmitter levels to determine the physiological cause of your emotional and physical changes. Recurring and undiagnosed health conditions can be complicated. Patients may even experience similar symptoms but have completely different underlying conditions that make diagnosis difficult. But, there’s good news! The most complex health condition can be detected by testing a patient’s biomarkers. Diagnostic accuracy can be improved by testing neurotransmitter levels making treatment much more effective with the corrective diagnosis.
Depression Caused By Neurotransmitter Imbalance
Neurotransmitters are the chemicals that communicate information to the body and brain. Because neurotransmitters are functionally integrated with the body’s hormone and immune systems, imbalances to them can cause widespread health problems. Today’s most common and recurring health conditions are associated with neurotransmitter imbalances. Following are symptoms indicating an imbalance:
- Sleep Disturbances & Insomnia
- Adrenal Depletion
- Sudden Weight Gain/Loss
- Change In Appetite
- Anxiousness & Irritability
- Mental Decline In Memory, Attention & Concentration
- Loss Of Interest
- Inability To Enjoy Previously Enjoyed Activities.
