Is this for me?
Hormones are released into the bloodstream and can travel throughout the body, performing both of these functions on a variety of targets. Many physiological processes are affected, including growth, metabolism, hunger, puberty, and fertility.
Testing your hormones can help you get a complete picture of your health, from infertility issues to persistent fatigue. When hormones are out of balance, the consequences may be devastating, affecting not just your health but also the quality of your life and relationships.
If you have experienced the following symptoms, then the Essential Hormone Panel is for you:
- Muscle weakness/pain
- Joint pain
- Abdominal discomfort
- Hair loss
- Poor sleep
- Estradiol: Estradiol (E2) is a form of the female sex hormone, estrogen. Estradiol plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy reproductive system. Produced mainly by the ovaries, estradiol levels are highest during a woman’s reproductive years. Levels decline significantly during menopause.
- Free Testosterone: Testosterone is a growth hormone produced by the adrenal cortex. It important for the maintenance of bone and muscle mass in women. However, high testosterone in women can lead to symptoms that included acne, weight gain and infertility. Free Testosterone refers to the amount of bioavailable testosterone in the body and allows for a more thorough diagnosis.
- Testosterone Total: Testosterone is a growth hormone produced by the adrenal cortex. It important for the maintenance of bone and muscle mass in women. However, high testosterone in women can lead to symptoms that included acne, weight gain and infertility. Testosterone Total is the standard biomarker and refers to the total amount of testosterone in the body.
- Progesterone: Progesterone is a reproductive hormone involved in the development and maintenance 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.
- DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone produced by the adrenal gland. While the body uses DHEA as a precursor for other hormones, it also maintains the metabolism. Healthy DHEA levels are linked to reduced fatigue and weight loss.
- Cortisol: Released by the adrenal glands, cortisol is the stress hormone that maintains the body’s energy by regulating the release of glucose, and usage of this glucose as an energy source. In times of elevated stress, high cortisol causes a hormone imbalance in women which can lead to mood changes, disrupted sleep and can even affect fertility.
- FSH: 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.
- LH: Luteinizing hormone (LH) is the hormone responsible for ovulation. A normal hormone level for LH in the second half of the menstrual cycle tells us there are no major hormonal imbalances interfering with ovarian function.
- TSH: Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) regulates hormone production in the thyroid. When TSH production is irregular, it can lead to symptoms of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism; including fatigue and unprecedented weight gain or weight loss.
