The Menopause Panel measures 4 Hormones in your body, Estradiol, Progesterone, Follicle-Stimulating Hormone, and Luteinizing Hormone.
Estradiol: (E2) is a form of the female sex hormone, estrogen. Produced mainly by the ovaries, estradiol levels are highest during a woman’s reproductive years. Levels decline significantly during menopause. When Estradiol (a form of estrogen) is imbalanced, it often results in weight gain. It is useful to check Estradiol levels as the deficiency is not uncommon and is often the case with women entering menopause.
Progesterone: Progesterone is a reproductive hormone involved in the development and sustenance of the reproductive organs, among other bodily functions. Abnormal levels of progesterone in women can cause symptoms such as mood changes, anxiety, and irregular menstruation.
Follicle-Stimulating Hormone: (FSH) controls the development of follicles – the source of estrogen and progesterone. FSH thus regulates the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovaries.
Luteinizing Hormone: (LH) is the hormone responsible for ovulation. Menopause triggers the decrease of estrogen and progesterone and the increase of LH
