Female hormone profiling provides valuable information about hormone health at any age. It also assesses whether hormone imbalances are contributing symptoms, such as low sex drive, weight changes, acne, fatigue, mood changes, hot flashes and other related health issues.
Measuring luteinising hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), prolactin, LH: FSH ratio, testosterone, progesterone, oestradiol, free androgen index, DHEA-S and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) in a hormone profile can help track your hormone levels, especially if you are working to keep them balanced.
Measuring DHEA-S provides extra insight into hormonal health as this hormone affects oestrogen, IGH-1 (insulin growth factor-1) and oestrogen. Elevated DHEA-S in women can cause amenorrhoea, hirsutism, deeper voice, and an increase in muscle mass, including other symptoms, while lower levels may result in symptoms such as low sex drive, hot flashes, mood changes, acne and fatigue.
This test is also an option for people wanting to know more about their well-being.
