Hormone Panel Blood Test
The hormone panel blood test is a comprehensive test that measures the levels of various hormones in the bloodstream. Hormones are chemical messengers produced by glands in the body that regulate various bodily functions and processes. The hormone panel blood test typically includes the measurement of multiple hormones such as thyroid hormones (TSH, T3, T4), sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone), adrenal hormones (cortisol, aldosterone), and others depending on the specific panel ordered. This test is often ordered to evaluate hormonal balance, identify hormone deficiencies or excesses, and diagnose or monitor conditions related to hormonal imbalances.
