Additional Detail about Hormone Testing

The hormones of a human body change as you age, and some might change throughout the day. Therefore, we use hormone testing to detect and evaluate the hormone imbalances that might be making you sick. We also conduct the testing of hormones using different blood samples, but some of the tests might require saliva or urine samples.

Most probably, we test the levels of:

  • Estrogen and testosterone
  • Growth hormone, prolactin, and other pituitary gland hormones
  • Adrenal gland hormones, such as cortisol

Suppression and Stimulation Hormone Testing

The tests that we use are called the suppression tests and the stimulation tests that evaluate the hormonal imbalance. We provide you with the hormones and other substances that will either start (stimulate) or stop (suppress) the production of certain hormones. Then, we will check that you’re your body is beginning to respond.

There are many common types of suppression and stimulation testing that include:

The growth of your hormones should be lowered by a sweet drink that we will give to you. The levels of the development of hormones in the blood of yours are measured by us every two hours. This test would be helping us to confirm the acromegaly.
A pill (metyrapone tablet) will be needed to consume by you at night that would be blocking the production of cortisol. . On the very next day, to measure the level of cristol and ACTH, we will be taking your sample of blood. It will help us confirm adrenal insufficiency.
