Information supplied by Labrix
Labrix believes the bare minimum for assessing hormonal status and endocrine function is the five hormone panel: Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA and am Cortisol. When there are any sleep disruptions or high cancer risk profiles we also recommend the night Cortisol level. But as a basic guideline, an excellent starting place for men and women is the five hormone panel.
Below you will find the various panels offered and the associated symptoms.
Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, AM, Noon, Evening & PM Cortisol: 8 tests
Comprehensive Panel: This assessment is used for men and women who have many of the symptoms described below, and it combines a complete adrenal function panel in addition to an assessment of sex hormone levels.

It is especially important to assess those mid-day Cortisol levels in individuals who are experiencing blood sugar dysregulation, hyperlipidemia, weight gain around the waist, bone loss, infertility, sensitivity to chemicals and increased joint pain.
