A Complete Female Panel will help you know how well your body is functioning. It is an important step to monitor your health and prevent disease. It allows you and your physician the ability to catch critical changes in your body. You can then make the necessary treatment adjustments before developing more serious health concerns like diabetes, heart disease, cancer and cholesterol problems. Blood work contributes to a science-based disease-prevention program that can add quality and longevity to your life.
Our Complete Female Panel Includes:
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Lipid Panel w/Direct LDL
- Urinalysis w/reflex
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
- Testosterone Total
This panel contains the following tests:
- Complete Blood Count (CBC) – The CBC test evaluates three types of cells that circulate in the blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets). These markers can help to provide information regarding the immune system, possibility of an infection, blood disorder, nutritional deficiencies, your body’s ability to clot, and more.
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) The comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) measures the level of 14 molecules in the blood. The test is done to evaluate body’s chemical balance and metabolism and is often done a s a part of general health assessment. The test can be helpful in diagnosing certain illnesses and conditions, such as diabetes, liver or kidney disease.The CMP test is a simple blood test collected via venipuncture. The test results can vary between men and woman and with age.
- Lipid Panel w/Direct LDL –The lipid panel is a comprehensive blood test that measures the amount of low density lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol, HDL/LDL ratio, and triglycerides in the blood. Cholesterol and triglycerides are lipids that the body needs in small amounts but high levels can cause health problems. The two types of cholesterol are HDL or “good” cholesterol and LDL or “bad” cholesterol. The lipid panel results can be used to assess the risk of heart disease.
- TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) – TSH is produced by the pituitary gland, and stimulates your thyroid to produce thyroid hormones T3 and T4. TSH can be used to screen for thyroid disease and other thyroid imbalances.
- Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) – Produced primarily by the adrenal glands, DHEA is the most abundant steroid hormone in the human body. DHEA plays a fundamental role in hormone balance, as well as supporting one’s immune function, energy, mood, and maintenance of muscle and bone mass. Since orally administered DHEA is mostly converted to DHEA-S, coupled with the fact that DHEA-S levels are more stable in the blood than DHEA, measurement of DHEA-S is preferable to DHEA.
- Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) test measures the level of FSH in the blood. FSH is made by the pituitary gland and it is needed for reproduction in both men and women. Abnormal FSH levels can be associated with delayed puberty, infertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and pituitary disorders.
- Iron – The iron test measures the level of iron in the blood. Iron is an essential mineral that serves as an integral part of hemoglobin (the protein responsible for carrying oxygen in the blood). The iron test is often done to assess anemia but can also be done to diagnose other conditions that cause abnormal iron levels.
- Ferritin – The ferritin test measures the amount of ferritin in the blood. Ferritin is a protein that stores iron inside cells. The ferritin test is an indirect measure of the amount of iron in the body and can be done to assess the body’s iron storage levels.
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH) – test measures the amount of luteinizing hormone (LH) in a sample of blood or urine. LH is produced by the pituitary gland. In women, LH helps regulate the menstrual cycle and egg production (ovulation). How much LH is in a woman’s body depends on the phase of her menstrual cycle.
- Progesterone – The progesterone test measures the level of progesterone in the blood. Progesterone is a steroid hormone that is mainly made in the ovaries. It is needed for pregnancy but also has other important functions in the body. The progesterone test may be done to assess ovulation, abnormal pregnancy, or risk of miscarriage.
