Description

The “Female Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Panel” consists of a series of blood tests specifically tailored for women undergoing HRT. Each test has a distinct role in ensuring the therapy’s safety and effectiveness:

  1. Total Testosterone: This test measures the total amount of testosterone in the body. While testosterone is often associated with men, it’s also important in women for libido, bone health, and muscle strength. Monitoring testosterone levels helps in balancing hormones during HRT.
  2. Complete Blood Count (CBC): This test evaluates the different types of cells in your blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It’s essential for detecting conditions like anemia or infections and for ensuring overall blood health during HRT.
  3. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): This panel includes various tests that check liver and kidney function, blood sugar levels, and electrolyte balance. It provides a broad overview of your body’s health and how it’s responding to HRT.
  4. Estradiol: This test measures the level of estradiol, a form of estrogen, in the body. Estrogen is crucial for women’s reproductive health, mood regulation, and bone health. In HRT, maintaining the right level of estradiol is vital for effectiveness and safety.
  5. Progesterone: This hormone plays a key role in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Balancing progesterone with other hormones like estrogen is important in HRT for managing symptoms and maintaining overall hormonal health.
  6. Lipid Panel: This test measures cholesterol levels in the blood, including LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and HDL (“good” cholesterol). Hormones can affect cholesterol levels, so this test is important for cardiovascular health during HRT.
  7. TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone): TSH controls thyroid function, which affects metabolism. This test checks if HRT is affecting your thyroid, which can impact energy levels, weight, and overall metabolic health.
