Hormone Health in Women

Are you experiencing irregular periods accompanied by acne or severe hair fall or are experiencing a sudden weight gain or weight loss without making any changes to your regular diet or routine. If yes, you need to take care of your hormone health.

Hormone health plays a crucial role in many aspects of health from growth and metabolism to cardiovascular health. A minor change in hormone levels is fine but major imbalances can cause a negative impact on the overall well-being of a person.

Assessing female hormones can be effective for diagnosing certain conditions, like PCOS and infertility, and may give insight into what lies behind symptoms of chronic fatigue, insomnia, cognitive issues, and mood swings. To live a healthier life, you need to monitor your hormone levels regularly.

Female hormone testing can proactively spot issues so your healthcare provider can decide the treatment plan you need. Keeping in mind the special needs of women Health2home provides several lab tests that can help you get a complete idea about your hormone health. Curious to know, keep reading this post:

FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone):  A pituitary hormone that causes estrogen levels to rise in women and leads to the development of follicles in the ovaries.

LH (Lutenizing Hormone): A pituitary hormone that regulates the production of hormones, like progesterone and estrogen, and induces ovulation in women.

FSH, LH & Prolactin: Like FSH & LH Prolactin is also a pituitary hormone. Abnormal levels of prolactin can be a cause of irregular periods and infertility issue in women.

AMH (Anti Mullerian Hormone): AMH levels indicate the reproductive health of females. AMH levels corresponds to the number of eggs in the ovarian reserve.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): Impaired thyroid function, such as in hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, can frequently contribute to female hormonal disorders and symptoms. High TSH levels are a sign of underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) whereas low TSH levels are a sign of overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).

FT3 (Free Triiodothyronine)/ FT4 (Free Thyroxine Total): High levels of free thyroid levels in the blood may indicate overactive thyroid whereas low levels of free thyroid level can be a sign of underactive thyroid. We also provide a complete thyroid profile consisting of TSH, FT3 & FT4.
