Why would you need a hormone test?
Hormones are essential for the coordination of different functions in your body. Without them your body will not work properly. The latest evidence has identified over 50 hormones in the human body. They are synthesised and released by glands, organs and tissues.
Hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal and adrenal gland, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries and testes, alongside with placenta, adipose tissue, kidneys, gut and liver make and release most of the hormones in your body. Those hormones regulate different functions in your body by carrying messages. Those messages need to reach their target which can be a local or a further distance cell or tissue. This complex network of chemical messengers makes up your endocrine system.
Metabolism, body temperature, blood pressure, sexual function, reproduction, circadian rhythm, mood, cognitive performance and mental health are just a few of the many different bodily processes controlled by hormones. Therefore, it’s beneficial to take a hormone test every now and again.
With our hormone test, we can assess just a few of those important chemicals in your body. For a broader spectrum of analysis please see our Fertility Test for Women and Men.
