Female Hormone Panel

Introduction
The cycling Female Hormone Panel (FHP) may be a simple, non-invasive test that
measures 11 saliva samples that are gathered at specific time points throughout one
complete cycle. The Female Hormone panel provides a dynamic mapping of the active
levels of Estradiol (or estrogen) and progesterone (P). The expanded panel also
includes Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone to realize a more
complete understanding of what could also be contributing to your symptoms. Compare
two samples at different points within the cycle, for pre and post-treatment to watch
dosing, or for the other application. Measures 2 readings of estrone, progesterone,
estradiol, estriol, testosterone and DHEA(Dehydroepiandrosterone).
Estradiol and progesterone affect several organs involved in successful pregnancy and
conception. Additionally, these hormones maintain several secondary sexual
characteristics, like reduced hair, soft skin texture, a better voice pitch, and therefore the
release of certain pheromones.

Different tests within the female hormone panel

Lipid panel-
The lipid panel measures general cholesterol levels within the body. Lipids are several
sorts of fat within the body that include cholesterol types, making it possible for us to live
it.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), also referred to as “bad cholesterol”, can tell your risk
level of heart attacks. Higher levels indicate a better risk than lower levels.
The purpose of an excessive amount of LDL is causing atherosclerosis, which hardens
the veins which will cause plaque build-up, therefore, creating the chance of a serious
attack. This panel measures those LDL levels, total cholesterol, HDL(high-density
lipoprotein) “good cholesterol”, and triglycerides.

Comprehensive metabolic panel-
The comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) measures liver and kidney function, glucose
(blood sugar) levels, and fluid and balance.

There are 14 analyses the CMP does that helps provide a glimpse at the general health
of the body. it’s close to metabolism and analytical balance and may assist in
diagnosing certain conditions like diabetes, renal disorder, disease, and hypertension.
The CMP includes the following: Albumin, Blood urea nitrogen (BUN), Calcium, CO2
(bicarbonate), Chloride, Creatinine, Glucose, Potassium, Sodium, Total bilirubin,
Protein, Liver enzymes: alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP),
and aspartate aminotransferase (AST)

Complete blood count-
A complete blood count (CBC) test helps evaluate your overall health and may identify a
spread of ailments like anaemia and infection. As a neighbourhood of a daily checkup, it
can observe and find disorders that you simply might not remember.
Testing is particularly recommended if you’re experiencing weakness, fatigue, fever,
inflammation, bruising or bleeding. it’ll 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 fixed on
the treatment to ascertain if it’s working or not.

Urinalysis test-
Our urinalysis with macro and microscopic examination may be a 12-panel test that
appears at a urine sample and analyzes the number of ketones, glucose, protein, occult
blood, nitrate, and lots of other elements. along with side those, it also analyzes the
urine’s colour, appearance, leukocyte esterase, bilirubin, relative density, pH, glucose,
ketones, nitrite, and urobilinogen.
A Urinalysis test is vital to access the chemical elements in urine and their relationship
to varied diseases. The presence of abnormal urine cells and formed elements wouldn’t
be all that detectable without the assistance of microscopic examination. It’ll find the
abnormalities of urine, help determine and monitor renal diseases, a tract infection or
neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases near the tract.

Estradiol test-
The Estradiol test measures the quantity of the hormone estradiol within the blood.
Estradiol, a sort of estrogen, in women is usually released from the ovaries and adrenal
glands. It plays a key role within the growth of the uterus, vagina and Fallopian tubes,
changes of the outer genitals, breast development, and therefore the distribution of
body fat.

Significance
Accuracy: researchers have demonstrated that the free hormone fraction predominates
in saliva. Within the blood, hormones are often found free or sure to proteins. The free
hormone fraction is extremely important because it’s the bioactive fraction that the
majority significantly influences living cells. Few blood tests or a 24-hour analysis of
urine for these hormones gives only a glimpse of the ovaries’ hormonal productivity.
Chronobiology: view ovarian capacity during a single snapshot reading, a paired
comparative reading, or over an entire cycle.
Flexibility: salivary testing enables measurements throughout your entire cycle to
supply a more comprehensive check out hormone levels without the complication of
blood draws
Simplicity: a set is non-invasive and painless
Convenience: saliva samples are often conveniently collected from your home, office
or other location. No blood draws are required, therefore no repeat clinic visits, and avoids
the inconvenience of the 24-hour urine collection.

Application
● Hormonal Imbalance and PMS – many ladies suffer from hormonal imbalance
within the estrogen to progesterone ratio. The panels can define the hormonal
state with exquisite accuracy which, in turn, provides specific insights for
appropriate intervention to alleviate hormonal imbalance and PMS-related
symptoms.
● Customized Hormone Therapy – Female hormone therapy isn’t typically
individualized to the requirements of every woman because most current
diagnostic tests don’t provide sufficient data. Consequently, most girls are treated
without reference to their individualized physiology or specific needs.
DiagnosTechs Female hormone panels will allow your doctor to customize a
hormone therapy plan that’s designed specifically for you.
● Detection of secretory phase Defect – There is a minimum of three secretory
phase defect patterns that are characterized by a progesterone/estrogen
imbalance. This imbalance is typically related to PMS, infertility, fibroids, and
other hormone-related problems.
