Choose the Right Hormone Test for You:
Our Acromegaly Screening test checks patients for an excess of growth hormone in their blood, which is developed by the pituitary gland, and can be a sign pointing to the hormonal disorder of acromegaly.
Our Adrenal tests help physicians determine hormone abnormalities occurring in patients, which may indicate the presence of Cushing syndrome, ectopic ACTH syndrome, Addison’s disease, hypopituitarism, and pituitary tumors.
Anabolic Steroid Panel:
Our Anabolic Steroid Panel is typically used as an initial screen to determine if anti-aging treatments with bio-identical hormone replacement (HRT) are needed, as well as to monitor a patient’s safety during ongoing treatment.
Anti-Aging Tests for Men:
Our Anti-Aging Tests for Men are used by physicians as an initial screening for patients to determine if anti-aging treatment with bioidentical hormone replacement (HRT) is needed. It is also used as a means of establishing a comprehensive baseline hormone status for ongoing treatments.
Anti-Aging Tests for Women:
Our Anti-Aging Tests for Women provide physicians with a baseline lab assessment used to determine if bioidentical hormone replacement (HRT) therapy is needed in a patient. It is also useful during ongoing treatments to provide periodic monitoring of targeted female hormone levels.
Comprehensive Metabolic Profile:
Our Comprehensive Metabolic Profile tests, also known as blood chemistry panels, measure a patient’s blood sugar level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. One of our panels also provides testing for creatine kinase in patients.
Our Electrolyte test checks a patient for kidney problems, acid in their blood, or abnormalities in sodium, potassium, and chloride.
Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Tests:
Our Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) test measures the FSH levels in a patient’s blood, a hormone useful in stimulating the production of eggs and regulating menstruation in women, and the production of sperm in men.
Hormone Tests for Men:
Our Hormone Tests for Men are used by physicians as an initial screen to assess whether bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is needed for a patient, or as a way of determining if this type of ongoing therapy has been effective..
Hormone Tests for Females:
Our Hormone Tests for Women help patients who are already undergoing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) assess the efficacy of this treatment at periodic intervals, also providing physicians with an initial screen to determine if HRT therapy is needed for a patient.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Test:
Our Human Growth Hormone (HGH) tests screen patients for abnormal pituitary functions as well as the presence of performance-enhancing steroids.
Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF-1) Test:
Our Insulin-Like Growth Factor I test, also known as a somatomedin-C test, screens patients for excess of this polypeptide hormone in their blood, which is normally produced by the liver and other tissues in response to growth hormone released by the pituitary gland.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) Test:
Our Luteinizing Hormone (LH) test helps a physician evaluate fertility in both men and women, as well as assisting in the diagnosis of pituitary gland disorders and menstrual irregularities. Menopause Test: Our Menopause Panel helps physicians diagnose a patient who is experiencing menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms.
Our Progesterone test is used by physicians to measure ovarian function in a patient, and can determine if a woman has ovulated, as well as when the ovulation occurred.
Our Prolactin test assesses a patient’s level of the prolactin hormone, which is a protein of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland that induces and maintains lactation in the postpartum female.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin Test:
Our Sex Hormone Binding Globulin test is used by physicians to evaluate the level of male hormones in men and women, otherwise known as androgens.
Our Testosterone tests measure the levels of testosterone in a patient’s blood, which is a hormone that promotes the development and maintenance of male sex characteristics.
Our Thyroid tests measure a patient’s thyroid function, which plays a critical role in regulating their metabolism and “thermostat”, also being prescribed to diagnose both hyper- and hypothyroidism in patients.
Please note: All abnormal or positive test results should be further evaluated by your physician.
How to get hormone testing?
Hormones can be tested through serum, urine, and saliva, which are the most common forms. Serum or blood testing are the most effective ways to test for various hormones.
The hormones you can test and their normal values will depend on your age, sex, and whether you have any specific symptoms that need to be addressed. You and your doctor can determine what specific hormone testing you can get done depending on your symptoms and overall characteristics.
What is hormone testing?
Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through the body to different organs and tissues and help control how everything works. Therefore, it is important to keep check on your hormones since they determine how your body functions on many levels.
Hormone testing is done to help determine what hormones are present and at what concentrations. They are also used to:
- Monitor hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
- Detect hormone deficiencies or excesses
- Diagnose cancers and other diseases
- Predict responses to medical conditions or treatments
- Detect illnesses early
- Assess risk factors for developing certain diseases
What doctor does hormone testing?
A doctor that does hormone testing is an Endocrinologist. The endocrine system is made up of glands that produce hormones that control your growth, metabolism, blood pressure and many other activities in your body. If you present any abnormalities in your hormone testing, an endocrinologist can guide you through hormone replacement therapy or any other treatment option that is best for you.
What are some common hormone-related conditions?
Some common hormone related disorders are:
- Low testosterone
- Adrenal insufficiency
Do I need to visit a doctor?
No doctor visit needed.
