Endocrine Assessment

An overview of the test

The initial endocrine assessment, also known as an endocrine profile, is a blood test to measure the levels of several hormones in the blood that may cause various endocrine disorders or infertility. Initial endocrine assessments are performed as part of the initial examinations of men and women seeking fertility treatment. An endocrinologist is a medical specialist who performs the endocrine assessment:

  1. To determine the level of numerous hormones in the patient's body. These hormones include:
  • Oestradiol 
  • Progesterone
  • Prolactin
  • Testosterone 
  • Thyroid function
  • Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH)
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Luteinizing hormone (LH)
  1. To ensure that the endocrine system is working correctly.
  2. To identify the root cause of an endocrinological problem.
  3. Confirm a prior diagnosis.

Risk factors associated with the test

Endocrine assessment is a perfectly safe and practical test. Endocrinologists who have undergone training and certification conduct endocrine assessments. It entails testing blood and urine in a lab to check for endocrine gland abnormalities that might be causing endocrine disorders or infertility. Visit the fertility hospital in Kondapur for the best endocrine evaluation.

Preparing for the test

Organising and making a list of some items before seeing an endocrinologist is crucial. The observables include:

  • A copy of every medical record you have. For instance, laboratory results for diabetes or other health information on kidneys, the brain, hands, and feet.
  • All symptoms so the doctor can determine whether there are any endocrine system issues.
  • Blood sugar levels must be recorded.
  • All medications, along with their dosages and schedules. Also, tell the doctor about any allergies you may have.
  • When visiting the doctor, jot down your family's medical history if you tend to forget.
  • Take a family member to the doctor's visit to make it easier to understand the conversation about the assessment and treatment plan.
  • List every recent vaccination received, including those for the flu or pneumonia and tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis.
  • All inquiries for the doctor should be written down. This guarantees that during the assessment, all pertinent information is covered.
  • Inform the doctor about any recent events that might have contributed to stress or despair, as high-stress levels frequently impact blood sugar levels.

What to expect from the test?

The following factors are involved in the endocrinologist visit:

  • Weight and height measurements
  • Pulse and blood sugar levels are measured.
  • Evaluation of hands and feet for skin infections and the teeth for oral infections.
  • Checking the breathing and heartbeat.
  • Inquiries about the patient's eating habits, medical background, and present symptoms.
  • Questions about your regular blood sugar range or the diabetic drugs one takes.
  • Tests on blood and urine.
  • A complete examination.

Endocrine assessments are blood tests used to measure different hormone levels as a part of pre-fertility treatment research. The lower the levels of hormones in the blood, the greater the chances of infertility. In addition, infertility may also be linked to situations like long-term stress, severe exercise, and medical disorders or drugs. Consult a doctor at the earliest for getting timely consultation and treatment.
