DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) tests the function of your adrenal gland.
A 19-carbon steroid hormone produced in the adrenal glands and the gonads as an intermediate step in the biochemical pathway that produces the androgen testosterone and the estrogensestrone and estradiol.
A procedure that measures the levels of testosterone present in the blood of men or women.
Total Estrogen is a measurement of overall estrogen status. Clinically this is important in evaluating symptoms of menopause, cardiovascular risk, and bone health in aging women.
Progesterone is a hormone produced in the body which helps to regulate the menstrual cycle of women. Men also produce a small amount of this hormone, but it is less important to sexual maturity in men than is testosterone. This test is performed to measure the amount of progesterone is being produced in the body.
Prostate Specifc Antigen (PSA)
A simple blood test to measure how much PSA (prostate specific antigen) a man has in his bloodstream at a given time. The PSA test is the most effective test currently available for the early detection of prostate cancer.
Sex Hormone Binding Globin
The globulin binds to androgens, or hormones found in men. As men age, testosterone levels tend to fall dramatically, leading to reduced muscle tone, sex drive and energy. The SHBG test is often paired with other hormone-related blood tests to give the physician an overall look at the androgen picture.
