Hormone Analysis


Hormone Analysis

Hormone tests that include both male and female hormones are often part of comprehensive hormone panels. These panels assess a variety of hormones to provide a comprehensive picture of an individual’s endocrine (hormonal) health. While individual hormone tests may be tailored based on specific symptoms or concerns, a general hormone panel may include a combination of male and female hormones. Some common hormones measured in such panels include:


Primarily considered a male hormone, but females also produce testosterone in smaller amounts. It plays a crucial role in libido, muscle mass, bone density, and overall well-being.


The primary form of estrogen in females. It is important for the regulation of the menstrual cycle, reproductive health, and maintenance of secondary sexual characteristics.


A hormone produced in the ovaries (and in smaller amounts in males) that is involved in the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and maintaining reproductive tissues.

Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH):

Regulate the menstrual cycle in females and contribute to the production of sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone) in both males and females.


Known for its role in lactation, prolactin levels can also affect fertility and menstrual cycles in both males and females.

Thyroid Hormones (TSH, Free T4, Free T3):

Thyroid hormones are crucial for regulating metabolism, energy levels, and overall body function.

Sample Requirement

Blood Sample Type:

Venous Blood: A venous blood sample is most commonly used for hormone analysis. It is drawn from a vein, usually in the arm, using a needle and a collection tube.
