A menopause test checking hormone levels that change during the menopause, as well as biomarkers key to bone and heart health. This menopause test is for women at various stages of the menopause.
This menopause blood test analyses biomarkers which support good bone health, hormones including follicle stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone and oestrogen, together with testosterone, thyroid function and cortisol. The changes in hormone levels also impact your risk of developing heart disease and osteoporosis.
This test is ideal for anyone wishing to establish the level of progesterone in their blood. It is especially useful for women planning a pregnancy or who have been trying to conceive without success.
We can test for a range of different allergies and health markers, using one of our home-testing kits. In this kit, you'll be able to test:
General indicators of potential thyroid issues
Oestradiol is a steroid hormone made from cholesterol and is the strongest of the three naturally produced oestrogens. It is the main oestrogen found in women and has many functions, although it mainly acts to mature and maintain the female reproductive system.
Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It is vital to survival given its role in functions such as immunity, regulating blood pressure and releasing insulin for blood sugar maintenance.
Testosterone is a male hormone which is produced in the testicles of men and, in much smaller amounts, in the ovaries of women. It is responsible for bone and muscle strength, as well as mood, energy and sexual function.
Testosterone levels decline with age and it is unusual to find naturally elevated levels in men. Low testosterone is more common than raised testosterone in the absence of supplementation.
In women, raised testosterone can result in male characteristics such as body hair, greater bulk, a deeper voice and acne - all symptoms of polycystic ovaries, a condition in which elevated testosterone is commonly seen.
