The DUTCH test, which uses dried urine, is the simplest, most elegant and informative test for anyone considering bioidentical hormone therapy, or suspects they might have a hormone problem
The test is done four times in a day, and the strips are then used to give you a complete hormone panel, including metabolites, effectively replacing multiple testing methods.
This blood test includes Epstein-Barr Virus VCA Antibody (IgM), Epstein-Barr Virus VCA Antibody (IgG), Epstein-Barr Virus Nuclear Antigen (EBNA) Antibody (IgG). This test is used to help diagnose and differentiate an acute or a reactivated infection of the herpes simplex virus, Epstein-Barr. Epstein-Barr is one of the most common viruses affecting humans. It is the cause of classic infectious mononucleosis and is implicated in numerous disease processes.
An Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) is also known as a Sedimentation Rate (sed rate). An ESR is a blood test used to look for inflammation and tissue destruction. An elevated ESR is considered non-specific meaning it is not used for a specific diagnosis, but may indicate the presence of an underlying inflammatory process. This may be why an ESR is frequently done in combination with other testing.
Essential Estrogens Hormone Testing with Genova Diagnostics
Urinary hormone testing provides a more comprehensive look at hormone metabolism, measuring basic parent hormones, as well as compounds produced from parent hormones
Emerging research reinforces the potential relationship of disease risk with downstream estrogen metabolites, which are not routinely measured in blood testing and not available in salivary testing.
Available as a convenient at-home collection of a first-morning or 24-hour specimen
The Essential Estrogen test is a sub-panel of Complete Hormones, a more comprehensive evaluation of sex- and steroid-hormone biomarkers.
This blood test is used to measure Estradiol (E2). Estrogen’s role in supporting health and well-being is as significant as it is diverse. Estradiol is the predominant sex hormone present in women and is also found at lower levels in men.
This blood test is used to measure Estradiol (E2). Estrogen’s role in supporting health and well-being is as significant as it is diverse. Estradiol is the predominant sex hormone present in women and is also found at lower levels in men. Estradiol not only impacts reproductive and sexual functioning, but also affects mood, attention and language skills.
This blood test is used to measure Estriol (E3) levels. Estriol is the major estrogen in the pregnant female and is produced by the placenta. Estriol helps to thicken and humidify mucous membranes in the vagina, bladder and eyes, making them more resilient against infections. Estriol plays an important role in supporting the immune system and has neuroprotective properties.
This blood test is used to measure total circulating estrogens. The three major naturally occurring estrogens are present in significant quantities in blood. They are estradiol (E2), estrone (E1) and estriol (E3). Because estradiol and estrone fluctuate during a womanâ€™s cycle and menopause, some providers prefer this test when evaluating estrogen levels. Estrogenâ€™s role in supporting health and well-being is as significant as it is diverse. To name a few, estrogen affects emotions moods, attention and language skills.
