Testosterone Total & Free: Evaluate hirsutism and masculinization in women; evaluate testicular function in clinical states where the testosterone binding proteins may be altered (obesity, cirrhosis, thyroid disorders).

Estradiol: Estradiol is a form of estrogen, necessary for many processes in the body. Estradiol is a female sex hormone that is involved in the development and maintenance of the female reproductive system.

DHEA,s: A precursor for the sex steroids including estrogen and testosterone. Also plays an important role in immune function and stress response.
