LH + FSH
FSH and LH are produced by the pituitary gland to control the production of sex hormones including testosterone and estrogen, and sperm and egg cells. They are both important in diagnosing primary or secondary hypogonadism, infertility, or potential pituitary adenomas.
FSH and LH are produced by the pituitary gland to control the production of sex hormones including testosterone and estrogen. FSH and LH regulate the development, growth and reproductive processes of the body. In aging men and women, a rise in FSH and LH may indicate the onset of menopause and/or andropause. In women that are still menstruating, low levels of FSH and LH may indicate excessive estrogen and may lead to estrogen dominance. In this hormonal state there is an increased risk for disorders such as polycystic ovarian disease and fibrocystic breast disease.
This test is not useful for men and women on testosterone therapy since both values are suppressed by TRT.
NOTE: If you are taking biotin, please stop it 72 hours before the blood draw since it may interfere with hormone blood tests.
