The Elite Athlete Metrics Profile is a comprehensive hormonal and vitamin assessment designed for both men and women. It focuses on testing 14 essential hormones and Vitamin D levels to identify potential hormonal imbalances that may be causing symptoms. This profile provides valuable insights into hormone levels that are crucial for optimal athletic performance, overall well-being, and general health.
The profile includes the measurement of the following hormones:
- Estradiol (E2): This hormone is primarily associated with female reproductive health but is also present in men. It helps regulate menstrual cycles, bone density, and cardiovascular health.
- Testosterone (T): Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone, but it also plays a role in female health. It affects muscle mass, bone density, libido, and energy levels.
- DHEA-S (DS): Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It helps in the production of other hormones such as estrogen and testosterone and is associated with overall well-being.
- Progesterone (Pg): Progesterone is a hormone involved in the menstrual cycle and plays a crucial role in pregnancy and fertility.
- Cortisol (Morning, Noon, Evening, Night): Cortisol is a stress hormone that regulates metabolism, immune response, and energy levels. Measuring cortisol levels throughout the day provides insights into the body's stress response.
In addition to the hormone panel, the Elite Athlete Metrics Profile also includes testing for the following thyroid-related hormones:
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): TSH stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones and helps regulate metabolism and energy levels.
- Free Triiodothyronine (fT3): T3 is an active thyroid hormone that affects metabolism, body temperature, and overall energy levels.
- Free Thyroxine (fT4): T4 is a precursor to T3 and is converted into the active form. It also plays a role in regulating metabolism.
- Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody (TPOab): This antibody test helps in identifying autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Furthermore, the Elite Athlete Metrics Profile includes testing for Vitamin D levels:
- Vitamin D (D2 & D3): Vitamin D is essential for bone health, immune function, and overall well-being. Testing both D2 and D3 forms provides a comprehensive assessment of vitamin D status.

The Elite Athlete Metrics Profile
Hormones play an important role in athletic performance. The Elite Athlete Metrics Profile allows the identification of hormone imbalances or vitamin D deficiency that can affect performance, increase injury risk, or prevent an athlete from competing at their highest level. It is best to start with a baseline before rigorous training begins and to track hormones throughout a training regimen to look for big changes that can indicate problems and to make sure that hormones are optimally balanced right before a competition.
The sex hormones and cortisol are tested in saliva, allowing a diurnal assessment of cortisol production at 4-time points during the day. A full thyroid assessment in the blood spot is included, and vitamin D.
Who benefits from Elite Athlete Profile Testing?
- Train for competitions
- Compete at a high level
- Feel like they are “hitting a wall”
- Suffer from nagging or persistent injuries
- Are interested in seeing how their workouts affect their hormones
Why Elite Athlete Metrics Profile?
WHY ARE HORMONES TESTED IN OUR ELITE ATHLETE METRICS TEST KIT PROFILE?Estradiol and progesterone
Most people are familiar with vitamin D’s role in preventing rickets in children and in helping the body absorb calcium from the diet.
Recently, research has shown that vitamin D is important in protecting the body from a wide range of diseases. Disorders linked with vitamin D deficiency include:
- Cardiovascular disease,
- Several forms of cancer,
- Some autoimmune diseases, such as multiple Sclerosis,
- Rheumatoid Arthritis,
- Type I Diabetes & Type II Diabetes,
- Breast and Colon Cancer (linked to Vitamin D Deficiency),
- Depression and even schizophrenia.
Vitamin D is actually a prohormone and not technically a vitamin: a vitamin is defined as a substance that is not made naturally by the body but must be supplied in the diet to maintain life processes. But in fact, we make most of our vitamin D by the action of ultraviolet light (sunlight) on the vitamin D originator that is found in our skin. We only get very small amounts of vitamin D from our diet, although increasingly, it is added to foods eaten by children in an attempt to prevent rickets in the population.
