About the Female Vitality Test
Energy & Metabolism
Metabolism is your body’s way of chemically processing sugar and fat for use throughout the body as energy. An optimal metabolism supports healthy weight control and energy levels, while a dysfunctional metabolism can lead to undesired fluctuations in weight and fatigue or decrease in Vitality
HbA1c –Chief source of energy for the body which if elevated slows down fat loss and is also a risk for diabetes
Cholesterol – An essential fat that serves many vital functions such as energy creation and metabolism. It is the principal building block of many of our hormones including estrogen, testosterone etc and also playes a vital role in Vit D production.
TSH – Overall measure of thyroid stimulation affecting metabolism, energy, weight and temperature control
Oestrogen is a female steroid hormone, produced in the ovaries of women and is responsible for sexual function as well as growth of breast tissue and bone thickness. Low Oestrogen can cause osteoporosis.
FSH is produced in the pituitary gland and is important for women in the production of the eggs by the ovaries.
Optimal levels of Vitamins (A, E, K, D, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12) plays a very important role in strengthening your immune systems and cell repair.
Magnesium & Calcium keeps the immune system strong, helps heal wounds, and supports sex drive.
Iron is needed by the immune system and the body uses the free radical action of iron to attack some pathogens. Iron helps the immune system in another way by enhancing the ability of white blood cells to engulf and kill bacteria.
Ferritin is Oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood is essential for endurance exercise as well as for normal function of the nervous, behavioural, and immune systems.
ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) helps to diagnose conditions associated with acute and chronic inflammation including infections and autoimmune disorders. Inflammation accelerates ageing and decreases vitality
Albumin/Globulin/Total Protein Main carrier proteins in the blood and binds to key substances such as free fatty acids, testosterone and essential nutrient
Hormonal imbalance meaning
When you have a hormonal imbalance, you have too much or too little of a certain hormone. Even tiny changes can have serious effects throughout your whole body. Hormonal changes can be measured through at-home hormonal imbalance tests offered by MyDiagnostics. These comprehensive tests also test for female fertility, vitality and sexual health
Cause of hormonal imbalance
Common causes include:
- Primary ovarian insufficiency
- Hormone drugs such as birth control pills
- Eating disorders
Causes of infertility in females
Most cases of female infertility are caused by problems with ovulation. Without ovulation, there are no eggs to be fertilized. Some signs that a woman is not ovulating normally include irregular or absent menstrual periods. Ovulation problems are often caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is the most common cause of female infertility. Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) is another cause of ovulation problems. POI occurs when a woman's ovaries stop working normally before she is 40.
Why are prolactin levels tested?
Prolactin hormone plays an important role in the production of milk after childbirth. It is usually done in case of fertility issues or irregular periods. Levels of prolactin are usually high during and after pregnancy.
What are FSH blood tests for?
FSH hormone in women is responsible for the growth and development of eggs in the ovaries and controls the menstrual cycle. Abnormal FSH levels can cause infertility, irregular periods and delayed puberty.
Can prolactin tests detect pregnancy?
Prolactin levels are usually high during pregnancy and after childbirth but it cannot be a 100% indication to detect pregnancy. There can be other reasons for high levels of prolactin like Prolactinoma (tumor of the pituitary gland), disorders affecting the hypothalamus, or ovaries.
Is Female Fertility genetic?
Female fertility depends on a number of factors. Family history and genetics are one of the many factors contributing to fertility but do not play a major role in influencing it. However, if the woman is suffering from a chromosomal abnormality or any inherited genetic disease, infertility rate may be higher
Does prolactin decrease testosterone?
Prolactin reduces levels of testosterone in both males and females. Too much prolactin combined with a drop in testosterone can lead to sexual and menstrual dysfunction.
