Men’s Hormone Panel
Keeping a balance is important for your health.
The Men’s Hormone Panel provides information on the amount of essential hormones present in a male patient, which are crucial in supporting the health and wellness of an individual. The panel can be used as an initial screening of a patient’s hormone status, and also as a method of determining the effectiveness of hormone replacement therapies currently being applied to a male patient. In addition, the panel include a workup of the general health of an individual in order to assess their overall health status.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
A TSH test is done to find out if your thyroid gland is working the way it should. It can tell you if it’s overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism).
Thyroid- T3 Free
A free total triiodothyronine (free T3 or total T3) test is used to assess thyroid function. It is ordered primarily to help diagnose hyperthyroidism.
Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG)
Most commonly measured in the evaluation of low testosterone (possible androgen deficiency) in men; also commonly used in the evaluation of women with signs and symptoms suggestive of excess male hormones (androgens).
Free Androgen Index
Measures testosterone in your blood and compares the total amount of testosterone to SHBG in your body.
Thyroid- T3 Uptake
An uptake total triiodothyronine (free T3 or total T3) test is used to assess thyroid function. It is ordered primarily to help diagnose hyperthyroidism.
Thyroid- T4 Total
Measurement of total T4 gives a reliable reflection of clinical thyroid status in the absence of protein-binding abnormalities and non-thyroidal illness.
Measures testosterone levels, a key hormone that affects sex drive, fertility, muscle mass, and bone health. Testosterone levels that are too high or low may increase the risk for erectile dysfunction, infertility, and bone health problems like osteoporosis.
Thyroid- T3 Total
A total triiodothyronine (free T3 or total T3) test is used to assess thyroid function. It is ordered primarily to help diagnose hyperthyroidism.
C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
The level of C-reactive protein (CRP), which can be measured in your blood, increases when there’s inflammation in your body.
A folate test measures the amount of folate in the blood. Folate is one of many B vitamins. The body needs folate for normal growth and to make red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), and platelets.
Studies show that between 3% to 16% of men can get hypothyroidism, and the risk goes up as you get older. 1
Hormonal imbalances may be responsible for weight gains and a slower metabolism. 2
When your body converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), you can experience hair loss.3
Hormonal changes in the brain that control your thyroid can also lead to fatigue.3
Mental Health Issues
Depression may occur early in hypothyroidism and may become more severe over time. Hypothyroidism can also cause slowed mental functioning.3
