BIOMARKERS -- Oestradiol (E2) -- Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) -- Luteinizing Hormone (LH) -- Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Sample: BLOOD (GG) Results: 4 HRS Phlebotomy fee: Included in price ( £10) ABOUT BIOMARKERS Menopause is diagnosed based on the presence of specific symptoms, such as the absence of menstrual periods for 12 consecutive months, in addition to a woman's age (typically between 45 and 55 years). However, there are situations where certain tests or hormone measurements can provide additional information and support the diagnosis of menopause. These tests can be helpful in cases where the symptoms are ambiguous or when a woman's menstrual cycle has become irregular. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH): FSH levels tend to rise as a woman approaches menopause because the ovaries produce less oestrogen. Measuring FSH levels can provide supportive evidence of menopause, especially if the levels are consistently high. Oestradiol (E2): E2 is the primary form of oestrogen produced by the ovaries. Its levels tend to decline as menopause approaches. The test measures the level of E2 in the bloodstream. Luteinizing Hormone (LH): LH is a hormone that helps to regulate ovulation. During menopause, LH levels rise. The LH test measures the level of LH in the bloodstream. Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH): TSH helps to regulate the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. Menopause itself does not directly cause thyroid problems but the levels of oestrogen in the body decline during menopause. Oestrogen has a stimulating effect on the thyroid gland, so when oestrogen levels decline, the thyroid gland may become less active. This can lead to an increase in TSH levels.
