Adrenal Bloods Profile
A highly relevant set of blood tests looking at adrenal fatigue, investigating pituitary and hormonal inputs, which if not related directly to adrenal function, are definitely interlinked.
C Reactive Protein (High Sensitivity)
Highly sensitive C-Reactive Protein is a measure of low-level inflammation that adds to the predictive value of other markers used to assess the risk of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease
The CA 125 level can provide prognostic information in the follow-up management of patients with ovarian carcinoma. The assay should be used as an adjunctive test in the management of ovarian cancer patients.
Testing of blood cortisol levels is often used to help diagnose Cushing syndrome and Addison's disease and can be usedin conjunction with other tests to assess adrenal status.
DHEA is a hormonal building block of other hormones, mostly Testosterone and Oestrogen - testing DHEA sulphate is an accurate and cost effective method of measuring this.
Female Hormone Profile
This test is a standard profile that helps to monitor levels of FSH, LH, Oestradiol and Prolactin and enables decision making regarding menopause, fertility and the menstrual cycle.
Fertility & Menopause Check
As a quick assessment of female fertility and menopausal status, the inclusions of FSH, Progesterone and Testosterone make this an excellent profile.
Folate, or Folic acid, is a B vitamin. It helps the body break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars to be used for energy. Also included as part of many profiles.
For a more accurate Testosterone assessment free testosterone will often be included as it is possible to have a normal total testosterone level without it being free in the bloodstream and available to the body.
FSH ( Follicular Stimulating Hormone ) can be useful when assesing fertility, vaginal bleeding, or when investigating pituitary conditions.
Serum glucose levels may be abnormally high (hyperglycemia) or abnormally low (hypoglycemia). Glucose measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of carbohydrate metabolic disorders including diabetes mellitus & idiopathic hypoglycemia
The glycosylated hemoglobin concentration represents the average blood glucose level over the previous several weeks. Also known as HbA1c.
This HIV test is over 99.5% accurate after 4 weeks from exposure. It tests for HIV 1, HIV 2, and the p24 Antigen.
Hormone Quick Check Male
An excellent way to take stock of male hormone status by looking at these four hormones in one mini profile.
Iron Status Profile
This blood test provides four measurements of iron storage - if there is anything out of range then our doctors can look at how the levels compare and suggest a course of action.
A Lipid profile gives a total cholesterol level, as well as quantities of LDL and HDL cholesterol (The good and the bad!). It will also give a triglyceride level and calculate the ratio betweren HDL and Total which is a...
Liver Function Tests
A liver function test looks at key hormone and protein levels in order to look at liver health and inflammation.
Low levels of Magnesium can cause fatigue, muscle weakness, cramps, muscle spasms or convulsions.
This Oestradiol blood test is useful when evaluating ovarian function in women and gynaecomastia in men.
Pregnancy Blood Test (Beta HcG Quantitative)
Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) is a pregnancy hormone produced when a fertilised egg implants in the uterine wall. . A Quantitative Beta hCG pregnancy test not only shows if BhCG is present in the blood, but also how much. The results...
Progeterone is used in various cases that evaluate health and wellness. The levels in the blood help determine the cause of infertility, track ovulation, help diagnose an ectopic or failing pregnancy and monitor the health of a pregnancy.
Prolactin levels may be ordered, along with other hormone levels such as growth hormone, when a doctor suspects that a more general hypopituitarism (low levels of pituitary function that result in lowered levels of thyroid or adrenal hormones) exist
Prostate Advanced Profile
Used as a screening process for Prostate Cancer, in this profile, free PSA is performed and percent free PSA is calculated, regardless of the concentration of total PSA
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin
SHBG concentrations are increased in pregnancy, hyperthyroidism, cirrhosis, oral estrogen administration and by certain drugs. Concentrations are decreased by testosterone, hypothyroidism, Cushings syndrome, acromegaly and obesity.
