Women Hormone Panel
Test Overview: Verifies women’s hormone and reproductive levels against normal.
Cortisol – Tests cortisol levels in the blood. Produced by the adrenal gland, cortisol helps maintain stress levels and control weight gain.
Dehypoepiandrosterone Sulfate (D-HEAS) – Measures D-HEAS levels in the blood. D-HEAS is a hormone necessary for the production of testosterone in men and estrogen in women. Test results are indicative of overall adrenal gland and ovarian performance.
Estradiol – A form of estrogen, estradiol testing is mainly used to measure ovarian function in women, but can also be used to assess adrenal function and detect some genetic defects.
Estrogen – Measures overall estrogen levels that are necessary for female reproduction.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) – Measures LH levels in the blood to determine fertility and to measure menstruation patterns. The luteinizing hormone helps regulate menstruation and ovulation.
Progesterone – Measures female fertility, reproduction capabilities, and ovarian production and cycles.
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – Necessary for menstrual regulation and consistent production of eggs.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) – Monitors and detects thyroid problems. Can detect disorders that include hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, and help determine when physician intervention may be recommended.
