Identifying Conditions of this Test
Many types of hormones support different functions and processes. Including growth, metabolism, appetite and fertility. Hormone imbalances or deficiencies may be to blame for a wide range of symptoms and conditions.
This test checks for 3 hormones:
Follicular Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a reproductive hormone. Produced by the brain's pituitary gland. FSH stimulates the growth and development of unfertilised eggs, during the menstrual cycle. It initiates the production of sex hormones such as oestradiol and progesterone. FSH is also used to stimulate the production of sperm in men. The FSH hormone is often tested with other sex hormones.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is a reproductive hormone. Produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. It regulates the menstrual cycle and ovulation. It stimulates the ovaries to produce other reproductive hormones in females. In men, LH stimulates and controls testosterone. The LH test is used to determine any reproductive problems.
How does the test process work?
Covguard will send a home-based test kit, which includes all the instructions on how to do the test. Pre-paid returned postage is included in the test kit. Doctor-validated results are emailed via a secure link.
It is important to note that blood tests alone are not a substitute for seeing a doctor. Especially if feeling unwell. Do not make a diagnosis or start any treatment. First, consult a doctor or a trained healthcare professional. Results need to be assessed within the context of a full medical history.
