Tests Included:

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: To measure or monitor estrogen levels, male or female.

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

PSA: The prostate specific antigen (PSA), is a protein made only in the prostate gland. PSA is produced by normal, abnormal and cancerous prostatic tissue. The PSA blood test is an accurate measure of this amount. The theory is that cancer causes more of the protein to be made and leaked into the blood than normal prostate tissue, so PSA is now used for assisting in the diagnosis and monitoring of prostatic carcinoma.

Insulin: Insulin is the hormone that enables cells to take in glucose. Without insulin, glucose can't get into the cells and it stays in the bloodstream. With too little insulin, blood sugar remains higher than normal (a condition known as hyperglycemia) and cells can't get the energy they need. With too much insulin, blood sugar decreases (hypoglycemia), causing symptoms such as sweating, trembling, lightheadedness, and in extreme cases, shock.
