Menopause is a natural and usually gradual change in glandular function in women resulting in substantial shifts in hormone levels.
The Postmenopause Panel™ provides measurements of six key hormones:
- Estrone (E1)
- Estradiol (E2)
- Estriol (E3)
- Progesterone (P)
- Testosterone (T)
- DHEA, DHEA-S (pooled)
The Perimenopause Panel™ contains the same components as the Postmenopause Panel™ but sampled twice, 13-15 days apart.
The inclusion of FSH and LH in the expanded Postmenopause Panel™ (ePostM™) and expanded Perimenopause Panel™ (ePeriM™), extends the interpretation to include pituitary involvement.
