Description

  • Male Basic Hormone Panel
  • Item Catalog Number: LC100012

This panel contains the following tests:

  • DHEA-S - Produced primarily by the adrenal glands, DHEA is the most abundant steroid hormone in the human body. DHEA plays a fundamental role in hormone balance, as well as supporting one’s immune function, energy, mood, and maintenance of muscle and bone mass. Since orally administered DHEA is mostly converted to DHEA-S, coupled with the fact that DHEA-S levels are more stable in the blood than DHEA, measurement of DHEA-S is preferable to DHEA.

  • Estradiol - The primary female sex hormone, estradiol is a form of estrogen that is also present in males. In men, high levels of estradiol are associated with excessive abdominal fat, enlargement of the prostate, and increased cardiovascular risk. Conversely, levels that are too low are associated with osteoporosis.

  • Free and Total Testosterone - Known as the feel-good hormone, testosterone helps maintain a man’s bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength, sex drive, mood, energy, sperm production, and more.

  • PSA - PSA is produced exclusively by cells of the prostate gland. Used in conjunction with a digital rectal examination, PSA is a useful screening test for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer development.

Sample Report

This panel contains the most essential hormones a man should have tested - each one crucial to supporting optimal health.

As men enter the andropause years, their bodies’ production of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), free and total testosterone, and other hormones needed to maintain youthful vitality rapidly declines, while PSA and estrogen may rise.

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed. If you are supplementing with any hormones, we suggest taking them approximately 2 hours prior to having your blood drawn to see peak levels. Hormones are best drawn between 8-10 AM. Activities stimulating to the prostate performed within 48 hours may elevate PSA (ejaculation, bike riding, heavy lifting, etc.).
