What is a hormone test?
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 check 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.
Adding a lipid panel to hormone testing is useful to understand your results and overall health.
What hormones do lipids make?
There is a strong relationship between lipids and hormones. Many hormones are derived from cholesterol and are called steroids. Steroid hormones include:
Therefore, studying hormones and lipids together can provide relevant information on how optimal they are in relation to each other.
What can a hormone panel test for?
A hormone panel:
- Monitors hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
- Detects hormone deficiencies or excesses
- Diagnoses cancers and other diseases,
- Predicts responses to medical conditions or treatments
- Detects illnesses early
- Assess risk factors for developing certain diseases
How does a diet lacking in lipids affect hormone production?
Lipids are essential to normal human metabolism; the absence of adequate amounts of lipids will disrupt the body's normal functions. Therefore, not eating sufficient fats in your regular diet can create a shortage for hormone production and lead to hormonal imbalances, which in men can cause:
- Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
- Low sex drive
- Low overall energy
Hormonal imbalances in women can cause:
