Women’s Health Analysis

With the natural course of age progression in women, comes an increased responsibility to understand your own body and embrace the corresponding changes. However, while we must accept life’s path, we do not have to tolerate the indicators and often debilitating symptoms. The delicate balance of hormones in a woman’s body must be carefully evaluated and analyzed to determine the proper course of bioidentical, or other types of hormone therapy. Interestingly, many women suffer from a reduced testosterone level often far before the onset menopause. Your Genetix team will carefully evaluate your history, genetic markers and blood analysis to truly understand you from the cellular level.

Important Markers

Known as the “feel-good” hormone, testosterone helps maintain a woman’s libido, bone and muscle mass, cardiovascular health, mood, and sense of well-being. Testosterone in conjunction with estrogen is crucial in minimizing hot flashes, sleep disturbances, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.

Produced primarily by the adrenal glands, DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is the most abundant steroid hormone in the human body. DHEA plays a fundamental role in hormone balance, as well as supporting one’s immune function, energy, mood, and maintenance of muscle and bone mass. Since orally administered DHEA is mostly converted to DHEA-S, coupled with the fact that DHEA-S levels are more stable in the blood than DHEA, measurement of DHEA-S is preferable to DHEA.

Progesterone is instrumental in balancing the powerful effects of estrogen. An imbalance between progesterone and estrogen is linked to weight gain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, migraine, cancer, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and osteoporosis

Estradiol is the primary female sex hormone and serves as a form of estrogen responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle, skin elasticity, bone strength, bladder and vaginal health.

Homocysteine is an amino acid that serves as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine levels increase in the body when the metabolism to cysteine of methionine to cysteine is impaired. This may be due to dietary deficiencies in vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and folic acid.  If homocysteine cannot be converted into cysteine, levels increase in the body. High homocysteine levels can directly damage the delicate endothelial cells that line the inside of arteries, resulting in vascular inflammation, arterial plaque rupture, stroke, and blood clot formation.

Women's Profile

The Women’s Health Profile highlights key blood indicators to provide your Genetix medical team with the most precise data to best analyze, assess and chart a proper protocol for renewed and continued health. We analyze a detailed assessment of your blood cells and essential nutrient levels which are critical to the functioning of all cells and tissues in the body. Further, we examine the biomarkers related to fertility and the overall function of the female reproductive system.
