The Female Premiere Panel
The Female Premiere Wellness Panel has all the test that the premiere wellness panel test has to offer including the following tests:
A luteinizing hormone test measures how much luteinizing hormone a person has in their blood. This is a hormone with key roles in both male and female reproductive systems.
This test measures the level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in your blood. FSH is made by your pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. FSH plays an important role in sexual development and functioning.
In women, FSH helps control the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovaries. FSH levels in women change throughout the menstrual cycle, with the highest levels happening just before an egg is released by the ovary. This is known as ovulation.
An estradiol test measures the amount of the hormone estradiol in your blood. It’s also called an E2 test.
Estradiol is a form of the hormone estrogen. It’s also called 17 beta-estradiol. The ovaries, breasts, and adrenal glands make estradiol. During pregnancy, the placenta also makes estradiol.
If a ferritin test reveals that your blood ferritin level is lower than normal, it indicates your body’s iron stores are low and you have iron deficiency. As a result, you could be anemic.
If a ferritin test shows higher than normal levels, it could indicate that you have a condition that causes your body to store too much iron. It could also point to liver disease, rheumatoid arthritis, other inflammatory conditions or hyperthyroidism. Some types of cancer also can cause your blood ferritin level to be high.
Folic acid can be measured in the liquid portion of blood (serum). This reflects a person’s recent intake of folic acid in the diet. Folic acid is found in foods such as liver; citrus fruits; dark green, leafy vegetables (spinach); whole grains; cereals with added B vitamins; beans; milk; kidney; and yeast.
The hs-CRP test accurately measures low levels of CRP to identify low but persistent levels of inflammation and thus helps predict a person’s risk of developing CVD.
The CBC blood test panel measures levels of:
- Red blood cells
- White blood cells
Abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts as revealed in a complete blood count may indicate that you have an underlying medical condition that calls for further evaluation.
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) measures blood sugar (glucose) levels, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function.
The CMP blood test panel measures levels of:
- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
- Carbon dioxide (Bicarbonate)
LDL helps cause atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that leads to plaque build-up and heart attacks. This lipid panel measures levels of: Total Cholesterol, HDL – “Good Cholesterol”, LDL – “Bad Cholesterol”, and Triglycerides.
