What?

The endocrine system test monitors your hormone levels using a blood sample collected at Clicks Clinics. You’ll receive results within 24 hours of the sample arriving at the laboratory.

Why?

The endocrine system regulates various bodily functions through hormones, influencing:

  • metabolism
  • energy levels
  • reproduction
  • growth
  • stress response
  • mood
  • sleep

Checking hormone levels ensures proper bodily function.

Who & When?

This test measures different hormone levels to detect imbalances. Hormonal issues can cause symptoms like

  • fatigue
  • weakness
  • gynaecomastia (enlarged breasts in men)

This test measures:

  • 17-OHP is essential for producing cortisol. Elevated levels may suggest congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), a genetic disorder affecting the adrenal glands. When these glands don’t work properly, cortisol, the stress hormone, becomes imbalanced.
  • DHEA-S controls the production of testosterone and estrogen, impacting sexual traits and bodily functions. Elevated levels in women result in increased facial hair growth and deepening of the voice.
  • Leptin aids in weight maintenance; reduced levels increased appetite which can lead to excessive weight gain.

The analysis will determine the levels of:

  • 17-OHP is essential for producing cortisol. Elevated levels may suggest congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), a genetic disorder affecting the adrenal glands. When these glands don’t work properly, cortisol, the stress hormone, becomes imbalanced.
  • DHEA-S controls the production of testosterone and estrogen, impacting sexual traits and bodily functions. Elevated levels in women result in increased facial hair growth and deepening of the voice.
  • Leptin aids in weight maintenance; reduced levels increased appetite which can lead to excessive weight gain.
