Why is this test important? How are we supposed to know if we have a thyroid condition in the first place, and if it might be the real cause of our peri/menopausal symptoms? And if we do have a thyroid condition, what can and should we do about it, to ensure good health and balanced hormones?
The Menopause Thyroid Profile of lab tests will help analyze your blood and answer these questions.
What does the test include? The HealthCheckUSA Menopause Hormone Profile is a blood test that includes:
Lab Tests Details:
FSH and LH Hormones Fertility Blood Testing Profile - Estrogen is a group of hormones primarily responsible for the development of female sex organs and secondary sex characteristics and very important in determining fertility. In women, follicular stimulating hormone (FSH; produced by the pituitary gland) stimulates cells (follicles) surrounding the eggs in the ovaries, causing them to produce estrogen. When the estrogen levels reach a certain level, the pituitary produces a surge of luteinizing hormone (LH), which eventually causes the release of the egg, beginning the preparation for fertilization.
In women and men, FSH and LH are ordered as part of the workup of infertility and pituitary or gonadal disorders. FSH may be ordered to determine if a woman has reached menopause.
Comprehensive Thyroid Blood Testing Profile with TSH - The HealthCheckUSA Comprehensive Thyroid Profile with TSH is a group of blood tests that includes Free T3, Free T4 and TSH that are often ordered together to help evaluate thyroid gland function and to help diagnose thyroid disorders. These hormones are chemical substances that travel through the bloodstream and control or regulate your body's metabolism—how it functions and uses energy.
Estradiol Hormone Blood Test - Estrogen is a group of hormones primarily responsible for the development of female sex organs and secondary sex characteristics. While estrogen is one of the major female sex hormones, small amounts are found in males. Estradiol (E2) is produced in women mainly in the ovary. In women, normal levels of estradiol provide for proper ovulation, conception, and pregnancy, in addition to promoting healthy bone structure and regulating cholesterol levels.
Testosterone (Free and Total) Hormone Blood Test - Testosterone is a sex hormone produced mainly in men, but also in women. It causes the development of male sex characteristics (deepness of voice, hair growth patterns), strengthens muscle tone and bone mass, and effects sexual drive. The testosterone test can be used to diagnose decreased sex drive in men and women, and infertility in men and women.
Progesterone Ovarian Function Blood Test - Progesterone is helpful in determining the cause of infertility, track ovulation, help diagnose an ectopic or failing pregnancy, monitor the health of a pregnancy, and help diagnose the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding. This test measures the level of progesterone in the blood. Progesterone is a steroid hormone whose main role is to help prepare a woman's body for pregnancy; it works in conjunction with several other female hormones.
DHEA-S Hormone Blood Test - DHEA, mostly found in the circulation in its conjugated form, DHEA sulfate (DHEA-S), is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, and levels generally reflect adrenal gland function. It is a precursor for the production of estrogens and testosterone, and is therefore normally present in greater quantities than all the other steroid hormones. Like cortisol, it is involved with immune function and a balance between the two is essential. Low DHEA can result in reduced libido and general malaise, while high DHEA can have masculinizing effects on women because it metabolizes to androgens, including testosterone. Because of its conversion to estrogens and androgens, it is important to monitor levels of these hormones, as well as levels of DHEA, during supplementation.
Vitamin D Blood Test - Vitamin D and 25 Hydroxy (a second form of Vitamin D) helps the body absorb calcium and helps the body keep the right amount of calcium and phosphorus (which helps form bones and teeth; helps repair cells and tissue; and plays an important role to help muscles, kidneys, the heartbeat, and nerve conduction function properly) in the blood. A deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to osteoporosis; prostate, breast, and colon cancers; heart disease; Type 1 Diabetes; and hypertension. An excess of Vitamin D can reduce the ability for the heart and lungs to function properly.
Pregnenolone Hormone Blood Test - Pregnenolone is most notably recognized for its tremendous memory enhancing properties. Many studies show that pregnenolone may be a powerful adversary against such age-related cognitive diseases as Alzheimer's and may be an important agent against age-associated cognitive decline.
Nicknamed the grandmother hormone, pregnenolone is a precursor to DHEA, which in turn can convert to testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. It is a steroid manufactured from cholesterol and is produced in the brain and the adrenal cortex. It works to keep the brain functioning at peak capacity. Its levels are highest in the brain and studies have shown that it enhances many of our mental functions. Pregnenolone is to the brain what other hormones are to the body.
