  1. 17 Hydroxyprogesterone : HCG + TRT Efficacy Predictor
    $82.95

    To find out if sperm count is normalized in men using hCG plus TRT, several studies have found that 17OH-P blood level is correlated to intratesticular testosterone (ITT) required for the testicles to make sperm, so testing for this hormone could not only save time while optimizing HCG dose/frequency but also eliminate the need to perform testicular aspirations, a very difficult procedure to do. Sperm count does not stabilize until 6-8 weeks after starting hCG plus TRT, so knowing your 17OH-progesterone blood level can give you a quick way to determine if your hCG dose and frequency is adequate before your first follow-up semen analysis after 8 weeks.

  9. DHEA-Sulfate
    $37.47

    The adrenal gland produces a hormone known as dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). It is also made in the brain. DHEA leads to the production of androgens and estrogens (male and female sex hormones). DHEA levels in the body begin to decrease after age 30. Lower DHEA levels are found in people with hormonal disorders, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, depression, diabetes, inflammation, immune disorders, and osteoporosis. Corticosteroids, birth control taken by mouth, and agents that treat psychiatric disorders may reduce DHEA levels.

  15. Hashimoto's Test Panel
    $157.50

    1. TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) Test The TSH test is crucial for diagnosing Hashimoto's disease. It gauges the level of TSH that the pituitary gland produces, which in turn stimulates the thyroid to produce T4 and T3 hormones. Elevated TSH levels can indicate hypothyroidism, commonly associated with Hashimoto's disease 

    2. Thyroid Hormone Tests These tests measure the levels of free T3 (free triiodothyronine) and free T4 (free thyroxine) in the blood. A low level of free T4, along with an elevated TSH level, is a key indicator of Hashimoto's disease 

    3. Thyroid Antibody Tests Most individuals with Hashimoto's disease have thyroid peroxidase (TPO) antibodies in their blood. Testing for these and other thyroid-related antibodies is a significant step in diagnosing the condition 

    4. Thyroglobulin Antibody Test This test screens for antibodies against thyroglobulin, a protein in the thyroid gland. High levels are another marker of Hashimoto's disease

  35. TRT + hCG Lab Test Panel
    $175.41

    This panel includes: Testosterone, Total, LC/MS and Free (Equilibrium Dialysis), and 17-OH-progesterone, a metabolite that has been correlated with sperm production.

    Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) shuts down upstream hormones like LH and FSH required for sperm production, so men on TRT generally have a difficult time to father a child. Some studies show that adding human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to a TRT protocol may improve sperm production since hCG is an analog of LH that could stimulate sperm production. But optimizing hCG dose and frequency based on sperm count can be a time consuming process since it takes at least 8 weeks to see changes in sperm tests. Fortunately, there is an easier way by measuring 17-OH-progesterone to predict the efficacy of the hCG+TRT protocol without having to wait for 8 weeks between hCG dose/frequency changes.

Hormones Tests - Top Panels and Individual Lab Tests You Can Buy Today!

 

The human body is a piece of complex machinery set into motion by hormones, enzymes, and other substances. Hormones are some of the most important elements and they travel throughout your entire body to influence the function of organs and tissues.

A hormone is basically a chemical messenger. Testing these hormones helps you find out important information about your health. Luckily, today's medical technology is able to identify and test more than 50 different hormones in the human body.

Keep reading to learn more about hormone tests and why you should order them. This article provides you with valuable information on individual hormone tests as well as complex hormone panels.

10 Top Hormone Panels You Can Order Today

Hormone panels are collections of hormones tested together to find out if you're struggling with some sort of deficiency or disease. In many cases, it's required to test more than one hormone to see if you have a thyroid problem, for example.

A testosterone panel is another good example in this case. This type of panel usually allows you to test your total testosterone as well as its fractions such as free testosterone, albumin-bound testosterone, or shbg-bound testosterone.

Here are some of the most popular hormone panels you can buy

1.   Hormone Panel for Men on TRT

Testosterone replacement therapy is increasingly popular in the United States and other developed countries in the world. It involves getting testosterone exogenously using creams or injections. This therapy is suitable for hypogonadal men, but it requires adequate monitoring and adjustments.

The Hormone Panel for Men on TRT will test your DHEA levels as well as estradiol, pregnenolone, progesterone, DHT, prolactin, total testosterone, and other hormones. Keeping track of all these hormones will increase your success with TRT.

2.   Women's Hormone Panel

This women’s lab test panel is designed for women and it contains a plethora of hormones as well. For example, you get a DHEA test as well as progesterone, pregnenolone, and testosterone tests. Included in this panel are also a few thyroid hormone tests such as T3 and T4. You can also add LH and FSH tests separately if you want to.

3.   Basic Bodybuilder Panel

Bodybuilders need to monitor their hormones to avoid polycythemia which is a condition that involves blood thickening. The basic bodybuilding panel includes multiple hormone tests such as total and free testosterone, hematocrit test, complete metabolic panel, and more.

If you just started with bodybuilding, this panel will provide you with accurate insight into how your body is performing. It's important to keep track of all these hormones to avoid the risks commonly associated with bodybuilding.

4.   Comprehensive Bodybuilder Panel

More experienced bodybuilders need to monitor additional hormones. This panel includes 14 different tests. Apart from the ones mentioned in the basic bodybuilding panel, this collection of tests also includes ferritin, complete blood count, and IGF-1 labs, among others.

The comprehensive bodybuilder panel is suitable for experienced bodybuilders as well as novice ones that want to keep all their hormones under control.

5.   Men/Women Hormone and Wellness Panels

These panels are relatively similar and they contain a plethora of hormone tests suitable for men and women alike. For example, the panels include complete blood count, thyroid tests, liver and kidney tests, as well as labs for sex hormones such as testosterone and estrogen.

If you want a complete snapshot of your health, the men's or women's wellness panels are probably your safest bet and they provide excellent value for money.

6.   Ultimate Lab Test Panel for Men and Women

This is probably the most comprehensive direct-to-consumer lab panel money can buy today. It's suitable for both men and women and it includes tests for your kidneys, liver, vitamin D deficiency, iron, inflammation biomarkers, sex hormones, thyroid hormones, etc.

This type of panel is suitable for those who want to get a complete overview of their health. It will also save you a lot of money in comparison with ordering this collection of tests separately.

7.   Testosterone Panels

You might be happy to find out that there are also various testosterone panels you can buy. The most basic one tests your testosterone and its fractions. However, some panels are a little bit more complex and they can also test your estradiol, DHT, PSA, Hematocrit, and/or prolactin levels.

These panels are suitable for people on TRT who need to keep their hormones in check. For example, if you're worried about prostate problems, order the Testosterone + PSA panel to see if your prostate-specific antigen is too high.

8.   Thyroid Panel

The thyroid gland is complex and important. It secretes hormones such as T3 and T4 which influence your entire body. Most thyroid panels test your T3, T4, as well as TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone). This panel will help you diagnose any thyroid problem you might have and it saves you money in comparison with ordering thyroid tests separately.

9.   Gynecomastia Panel

Gynecomastia is also known colloquially as "man boobs" and this condition might affect certain men on TRT. This happens when too much testosterone is converted into estrogen. The gynecomastia panel includes tests for testosterone, estradiol, DHT, prolactin, and other hormones.

10.                Erectile Dysfunction Panel

ED is relatively common among hypogonadal men. It involves the inability of having an erection or maintaining it to achieve satisfying intercourse. The ED panel includes tests for hormones that could be the cause of your ED such as testosterone, estradiol, thyroid hormones, DHEA, and others.

If you currently struggle with erectile dysfunction, this panel might provide an insight into what treatment to follow to cure this problem.

These are some of the most common hormone panels you can buy and each one of them provide excellent value for money. Now it's easier than ever to find out exactly what your hormone levels are and what treatment options you have to improve them if necessary.

20 Individual Labs Money Can Buy Today

We talked about complex hormone panels, but individual tests for specific hormones are equally important. Let's take a look at some of the most popular hormone tests you can use to learn more about your general health.

1.   Anti-Mullerian Hormone Test

The Anti-Mullerian hormone is important when assessing fertility status and ovarian function. Low levels of this hormone are related to difficulties conceiving a baby. Women might want to order this test to see if they currently struggle with unknown fertility issues.

2.   Free Estradiol (Sensitive)

Estradiol is a female sex hormone with an important role in both men and women. This test uses LC/MS testing methods to determine your free estradiol levels as accurately as possible. Men on TRT, among others, might want to order this test to keep their estradiol in check.

3.   Thyroxine-Binding Globulin

Thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) links to thyroid hormones and helps them circulate freely in the body. Low levels of TBG don't show symptoms but could indicate underlying thyroid issues. You might need a TBG test to determine if you struggle with hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

4.   Growth Hormone

The growth hormone is important for muscle gain, exercise performance, and wound healing. A growth hormone blood test tells you if you have healthy levels of this substance or not. You might want to order this test if you fail to see muscle hypertrophy or if you feel lethargic all the time.

5.   Cortisol Test

Cortisol is one of the main "stress" hormones in the body. It's secreted by your adrenal glands in response to various stimuli. You can order a salivary or blood cortisol test. This information is useful in assessing the risk for more complicated diseases that can be caused by excessive stress.

6.   Insulin-Like Growth Factor-Binding Protein 3

This hormone is an important carrier of IGF-1 and it's required to determine if you're producing healthy levels of human growth hormone. If this test returns abnormal results, your pituitary gland might not function correctly.

7.   ACTH Plasma Test

ACTH stands for adrenal corticotropic hormone. It's a hormone produced by the pituitary to maintain the cortisol balance in your body. You might need an ACTH plasma test to see if you struggle with any diseases caused by too much or too little cortisol.

8.   Aldosterone Test

Aldosterone helps adjust the mineral balance in your system. It maintains sodium and potassium levels in a healthy range. Excessive aldosterone is also associated with serious cardiovascular complications. You might need this test if your blood pressure is high most of the time.

9.   Fasting Insulin

Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas. It helps move blood sugar into cells to produce energy. A fasting insulin test is required to determine if you're predisposed to diabetes which is a life-threatening disease.

10.                Parathyroid Hormone

This hormone is released by the parathyroid glands. It maintains healthy calcium levels in your system. If you currently struggle with hypocalcemia, your doctor might order a parathyroid hormone test. This hormone is also helpful in diagnosing thyroid problems.

11.                Prolactin Test

Prolactin is known to support lactation in women, but it also plays other important functions. For example, it plays a role in immune function and supports the production of testosterone by the Leydig cells. However, too much prolactin might lead to sexual dysfunction in men.

12.                DHEA-Sulfate Test

DHEA-Sulfate is produced by the adrenal glands and it plays a vital role in the production of both male and female sex hormones. Abnormal levels of this hormone might indicate hormonal disorders. A DHEA test is required to find out if a patient is struggling with neurodegenerative disorders, excessive inflammation, etc.

13.                DHT Test

Dihydrotestosterone is similar to testosterone. Too much of it can lead to hair loss and acne. Too little DHT might lead to sexual dysfunction. This test helps you find out if your DHT levels are within normal ranges.

14.                Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin

SHBG is a protein carrier for testosterone. Most of the testosterone in the body is bound to SHBG. High levels of this hormone might indicate thyroid problems or anorexia. Too little SHBG is commonly associated with diabetes and ovarian complications.

15.                LH and FSH Test

Luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone are produced by the pituitary gland. These hormones indicate the onset of menopause in women and andropause in men. Low levels of these two hormones could also indicate that there is too much estrogen in your body.

16.                Estrone Test

Estrone is one of the most important estrogens found in a woman's body. Its levels increase after menopause. Testing estrone might be required to prevent osteoporosis and other health problems commonly associated with post-menopausal women.

17.                Progesterone Test

This is another important female sex hormone. It's also present in a male's body, but very small quantities. High levels of progesterone are commonly associated with depression, bloating, and other symptoms in women.

18.                Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1

IGF-1 is used to gauge the blood levels of human growth hormone in both men and women. This hormone is very similar to insulin when it comes to its structure. Your doctor might order an IGF-1 test to determine if your growth hormone is within normal ranges.

19.                Pregnenolone Test

Pregnenolone is the hormone from which all other hormones are made, including estrogen and testosterone. Abnormal levels of pregnenolone might affect your mood, cognition, memory, and metabolism. This test uses LC/MS to accurately determine the levels of pregnenolone in your body.

20.                Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone

The TSH is exactly what the name implies - a hormone that stimulates your thyroid to produce other hormones. This substance is secreted by the pituitary gland and it helps doctors determine if you have a thyroid problem.
