Women's Hormone Panel advance by lab test on demand offers a comprehensive picture of a woman's hormonal health.
Female Hormones are responsible for a woman's variety of bodily functions, including aging, weight loss, mood, memory, and libido. Measuring and monitoring hormone levels keep you informed of your overall hormonal health. Hormone testing can help to monitor fertility issues, menstrual irregularities, menopause and other health concerns.
Women's Hormone Panel Advance includes: Estradiol, Progesterone Immunoassay, FSH, LH, Testosterone free & total, and TSH, Estrogen, GH, cortisol, DHEA, Prolactin, SHBG, and Insulin.
Estradiol Test measures the level of Estradiol (E2) in the blood.
Estradiol is a very important hormone for both women and men. Estradiol acts in the growth and maintenance of organs related to sex and fertility.
The Estradiol Test checks for sexual and ovarian function in women to assess infertility, abnormal menstruation or symptoms of menopause.
In men, Estradiol helps maintain sperm cell health.
Progesterone Test measures the level of the hormone Progesterone in your body.
Progesterone is a hormone produced by the ovaries and the adrenal glands. In women it regulates the reproductive system (fertility, pregnancy, menstruation). In men, low levels of progesterone are involved in the production of semen.
The test evaluates ovarian function and time of ovulation to understand causes of infertility.
FSH Test is used to measure the level of Follicle-Stimulating Hormones (FSH).
FSH is an important hormone in the process of reproduction by helping the body develop eggs in women and sperm in men.
FSH Test is important to assess fertility in women and to measure ovulation. Abnormal high or low levels of FSH may result in infertility in women. Low levels of FSH in men can affect sperm production.
The LH (Luteinizing Hormone) test measures the LH levels in the blood.
The LH Hormone influences the reproductive organs and is ordered to evaluate fertility.
In women LH plays an important role in ovarian maturation and Estradiol levels. LH is an indicator that ovulation has occurred, it is a fertility signal for anyone trying to get pregnant.
In men LH is involved in the elaboration of testosterone and is associated with men’s sexual drive.
Testosterone ,Free Test measures the total and freely circulating Testosterone.
Testosterone is a vital hormone in both men and women, abnormal quantities can impact quality of life.
Low Testosterone levels in men can lead to lower sex drive, erectile dysfunction, low energy, low muscle mass, memory loss, etc. In women, abnormal Testosterone could cause male physical traits (facial hair, lower voice).
TSH Blood Test or Thyroid Function Blood Test measures the level of Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). The quantity of TSH has a direct impact on the levels of thyroid hormones causing either over-active thyroid or under-active thyroid regulating the thyroid gland is important because the thyroid produces several hormones which can stimulate or shut down certain processes in the body.
TSH Blood Test or Thyroid Function Blood Test helps detect hyperthyroidism whose symptoms may include: weight loss, rapid heart rate, nervousness, diarrhea, irregular menstrual periods and hypothyroidism whose symptoms are: weight gain, dry skin, constipation, tiredness, frequent menstrual periods.
Estrogen Test measures the amount of Estrogen in the body and it is used to evaluate ovarian function or causes of infertility and menopause.
Estrogen is a hormone produced by the ovaries that helps regulate the reproductive system in women.
The Estrogen Test can determine the time of ovulation in women of reproductive age, and monitors response to medication. You may need several tests to track changes of Estrogen levels over time.
Growth Hormone Test measures the level of Growth Hormone (GH or HGH) in the blood.
Growth Hormone is produced by the Pituitary Gland and is important for normal bone density and muscle mass, it is also involved in protein synthesis and glucose metabolism. It can also affect heart and kidney function.
Cortisol Test aids in the diagnosis of adrenal disorders, such as Addison’s disease and Cushing’s Disease. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland and regulated by the Pituitary Gland. It plays an important role in regulating metabolism, blood pressure, blood sugar and the immune system.
Cortisol levels are important as they help the body maintain functions such as: Blood pressure, glucose levels, immune response and stress management.
DHEA Sulfate Test measures DHEA’s levels in the blood.
DHEA -S (Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate) assists in the development of certain male sexual characteristics at puberty.
This test helps evaluate women with excess facial hair or other male characteristics and also assess fertility and lack of menstrual periods. Elevated DHEA could be a consequence of an Adrenal tumor.
The test helps understand certain symptoms like weakness, low energy, low sex drive and infertility.
Prolactin Test measures the amount of prolactin in the blood. Prolactin is a hormone whose primary role is to promote breast milk production (lactation). It is normally elevated in women during pregnancy and just after childbirth. It is normally low in men and non-pregnant women.
Get tested to help investigate unexplained flow of breast milk (galactorrhea), abnormal nipple discharge, absence of menstrual periods, and/or infertility in women; in men, to help diagnose the cause of decreased libido and/or erectile dysfunction; to detect and monitor a pituitary tumor that produces prolactin (prolactinoma)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, SHBG Test measures the level of SHBG in the blood. SHBG is produced by the liver.
SHBG plays an important role as a transport for Androgen and Estrogen hormones including Testosterone and Estradiol.
High SHBG levels can result in inadequate amounts of Testosterone and Estradiol, low amounts of SHBG are linked to cardiovascular risk, hypothyroidism, diabetes, hair loss.
Insulin Blood Test helps track insulin levels in the blood and can help assess insulin resistance.
The lack of insulin causes the level of sugar in your blood to become abnormally high, too much sugar in your blood can cause many problems including life-threatening, like diabetes, if not treated.
The abnormal production of insulin can be caused by certain disorders such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and other carbohydrate metabolic processes. Too much insulin in the blood may cause low levels of sugar in the blood (Hypoglycemia) which causes other types of disorders.
