About Our Standard Female Hormone Panel
This panel of tests measures the chemistry and hormone levels associated with women.
Our Standard Hormone Imbalance Panel for women includes testing levels of:
- Lipid Panel
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Routine Urinalysis (UA)
- IGF-1 (Insulin Like Growth Factor)
- Testosterone, Total
- Thyroid Profile
- Human Growth Hormone (hGH)/Growth Hormone (GH)
- Estrogens, Total
Tests included in the Female Hormone Panel
The Lipid Panel
The lipid panel measures general cholesterol levels in the body. Lipids are several types of fat in the body that include cholesterol types, making it possible for us to measure it.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), also known as “bad cholesterol”, can tell your risk level of heart attacks. Higher levels indicate a higher risk than lower levels.
The purpose of too much LDL is causing atherosclerosis, which hardens the veins that will lead to plaque build-up, therefore, creating the opportunity of a major heart attack. This panel measures those LDL levels, total cholesterol, HDL “good cholesterol”, and triglycerides.
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures the liver and kidney function, glucose (blood sugar) levels, and fluid and electrolyte balance.
There are 14 analyses the CMP does helps provide a glimpse at the overall health of the body. It looks closely at metabolism and chemical balance and can assist in diagnosing certain conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, and hypertension.
The CMP includes the following:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (bicarbonate)
- Total bilirubin
- Liver enzymes: alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST)
In addition to the previous 14 measurements, the CMP also includes these calculated measurements:
- BUN/Creatinine Ratio (calculated)
- Albumin/Globulin Ratio (calculated)
- Globulin (calculated)
Complete Blood Count
A complete blood count (CBC) test helps evaluate your overall health and can identify a variety of ailments like anemia and infection. As a part of a regular medical examination, it can observe and find disorders that you may not be aware of.
Testing is especially recommended if you’re experiencing weakness, fatigue, fever, inflammation, bruising or bleeding. It will help diagnose the possible unknown medical condition or also confirm a suspicion of an infection. After being diagnosed with any blood-related disorder and treatment commences, a CBC test can keep an eye on the treatment to see if it’s working or not.
This test includes testing for 10 kinds of cells and cell molecules in the blood:
- Hematocrit - It measures the number of red blood cells in the blood.
- Hemoglobin - This is a protein that carries oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) - Measures the average quantity of red blood cells in the blood.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) - The amount of the oxygen-transporting protein, hemoglobin, in each red blood cell.
- Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) - The measured volume of hemoglobin concentration in a given amount of red blood cells.
- Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) - Measures the variation of red blood cell size or volume in the blood sample.
- Percentage and Absolute Differential Counts - Measures the amounts of distinctive white blood cell types within the blood.
- Platelet Count - Measures the number of platelets (fragments and particles of cells) in the blood that are essential for blood clotting.
- Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) - Counts the number of red blood cells in the blood. Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body.
- White Blood Cell Count (WBC) - Counts the number of the body defending white blood cells in the blood.
Our urinalysis with macro and microscopic examination is a 12-panel test that looks at a urine sample and analyzes the levels ketones, glucose, protein, occult blood, nitrate, and many other elements. Along with those, it also analyzes the urine’s color, appearance, leukocyte esterase, bilirubin, specific gravity, pH, glucose, ketones, nitrite, and urobilinogen.
A UA test is important to access the chemical elements in urine and the relationship to the various diseases. The presence of abnormal urine cells and formed elements wouldn’t be all that detectable without the help of microscopic examination. It’ll find the abnormalities of urine, help determine and monitor renal diseases, a urinary tract infection or neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases near the urinary tract.
The Estradiol test measures the amount of the hormone estradiol in the blood. Estradiol, a form of estrogen, in women is mostly released from the ovaries and adrenal glands. It plays a key role in growth of the uterus, vagina and Fallopian tubes, changes of the outer genitals, breast development, and the distribution of body fat.
The IGF-1 Test
The Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) test measures levels of IGF-1, a protein that is closely related to growth factors. Our IGF-1 blood test is commonly used to measure levels of human growth hormone (hGH) and its activity.
The Testosterone (Free and Total) test measures the total amount of testosterone that is bound to proteins in the blood as well as testosterone that is not bound (free testosterone), and is helpful in managing hirsutism or virilization in females.
Our Thyroid Panel includes measuring the following three thyroid levels:
- T3 uptake (Triiodothyronine) - T3 is the active form of T4. This hormone informs cells to use digested food as energy, rather than store it as fat.
- T4 (Total Thyroxine) - A total T4 test measures the T4 that has bonded to protein and the free (unbonded) T4 in the blood.
- T7 (Free Thyroxine Index) - This measurement is a calculation of T4 and T3 uptake.
Human Growth Hormone (hGH Test)
The Human Growth Hormone (hGH), also known as Growth Hormone (GH), test measures levels of hGH, a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. Measurement of GH is primarily of interest in the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of inappropriate growth hormone secretion.
Total Estrogens Test
The Total Estrogens test measures the total amounts of the estrogen in the blood. Estrogens are the hormones responsible for female sexual development and function.

Since this panel includes the lipid panel and a blood glucose test in the CMP, patients should fast 9-12 hours prior to collection.
