Basic Hormone Panel, from a saliva sample, provides a basic evaluation of sex hormones (Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone and DHEA) and HPA axis function with AM30 cortisol level. This profile is a good monitoring tool for re-evaluation 2-3 months after hormone replacement
Enzyme Immunoassay Antibody (EIA)
When should I use
Basic Hormone Panel is useful for monitoring hormone replacement.
For a more comprehensive assessment consider Comprehensive Panel (8 Tests), code HOR2 which, in addition, measures cortisol levels at noon, evening and night. Or Comprehensive Panel Plus (10 Tests), code HOR01 which, in addition, measures Estrone and Estriol, and, cortisol levels at noon, evening and night.
