It’s natural for hormone levels to decline as you get older. Many of your bodily functions depend on hormones. These processes include weight loss, libido, how you age and how you feel, etc. A simple hormone level blood or urine test can determine your hormone levels. Results can uncover possible health issues and provide you with the information you need for your next action.
Some important hormones to have tested are DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEA-S) assesses adrenal gland function. These glands are responsible for producing hormones that regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure and other important functions. Estrogens include a group of female sex hormones called estradiol, estriol, and estrone. They are responsible for how the female reproductive system develops and its regulation.
Progesterone evaluates the cause of infertility and tracks ovulation. It can diagnose a failing pregnancy, determine the causes of abnormal uterine bleeding, and monitor health during a pregnancy or progesterone replacement therapy.
Testosterone is responsible for properly developing male sexual characteristics and plays a significant role in maintaining muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, bone growth, fat distribution, facial and body hair, sperm production and sex drive.
