Description

  • Female Hormone Replacement Panel
  • Item Catalog Number: LC100023

This panel contains the following tests:

  • Chemistry Panel (metabolic panel with lipids) - The cornerstone of any complete physical, the chemistry panel provides an array of markers to help assess cardiovascular risk, metabolic function, electrolyte status, minerals important for bone health, plus liver and kidney function.

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC) - The CBC test evaluates three types of cells that circulate in the blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets). These markers help provide information regarding the immune system, possibility of an infection, blood disorder, nutritional deficiencies, your body’s ability to clot, and more.

  • Free & Total Testosterone - Known as the feel-good hormone, testosterone helps maintain a woman’s libido, bone and muscle mass, cardiovascular health, mood, and sense of well-being. Testosterone in conjunction with estrogen is crucial in minimizing hot flashes, sleep disturbances, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.

  • Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) - 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.

  • Progesterone - Instrumental in balancing the powerful effects of estrogen, an imbalance between progesterone and estrogen is linked to weight gain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, migraine, cancer, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and osteoporosis.

  • Estradiol (E2) - The primary female sex hormone, estradiol is a form of estrogen responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle, skin elasticity, bone strength, bladder and vaginal health.

  • Estrone (E1) – Estrone is a strong acting form of estrogen. Higher levels of estrone, compared to other estrogens, have been implicated in cardiovascular disease, stroke and certain types of cancer. Estrogen imbalances are also thought to increase the risk for many age-related diseases.

  • TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) – TSH stimulates your thyroid to produce thyroid hormones T3 and T4. TSH can be used to screen for thyroid disease and other thyroid imbalances.

  • Insulin – Maintaining optimal insulin levels is key to managing many of the symptoms associated with menopause and the years leading up to it, known as perimenopause.
Sample Report

The first step to achieving youthful hormone balance is to have a blood test panel that evaluates a woman’s individual needs. Continual assessment of hormone levels is necessary for women seeking to maintain a healthy hormonal balance.

An 8 to 12 hour fast is required for this blood test. However, drink plenty of water and take your medications as prescribed.

Special Note:
If you are supplementing with any hormones, it is important to take them approximately 2 hours prior to having your blood drawn. Any type of contraceptives that contain hormones will invalidate hormone results.

Women still having their cycle should test on day 21 of their cycle. Post-menopausal women can have blood drawn any day of the month. Blood should be drawn between 8-10 AM.
