Patient Brochure

The Bisphenol A Profile is a useful test in clinical practice used to help identify exposure to the common endocrine disruptors BPA, triclosan, and 4-nonylphenol. Endocrine disruptors weakly bind to estrogen receptors which can affect the endocrine, nervous, and immune systems as well as block thyroid hormone action. Exposure to chemicals that are xenoestrogens disrupt the proper function of the body´s endocrine system. Children and babies in the womb are most susceptible to hormonal and neurological development issues from exposure.
