-10%

The Steroidandrogen Profile for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) test is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at individuals suspecting or managing PCOS. This condition is characterized by an imbalance of reproductive hormones, leading to various symptoms including irregular menstrual cycles, acne, hirsutism, and fertility issues. The test specifically measures the levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body, which are often elevated in women with PCOS. Understanding the androgen profile is crucial for diagnosing the condition, assessing its severity, and guiding treatment options. Priced at 700 AED, this test provides valuable insights into the hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS, aiding healthcare professionals in creating personalized management plans for their patients.

Test Details:

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is characterized by the presence of multiple cysts on the ovaries, irregular menstrual cycles, and excessive production of androgens (male hormones).

Here is a steroid/androgen profile for PCOS:

  1. Testosterone: Women with PCOS often have elevated levels of testosterone, which can lead to symptoms such as acne, excessive hair growth (hirsutism), and male-pattern baldness.
  2. DHEA-S: DHEA-S (dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) is a precursor to testosterone and other androgens. Elevated levels of DHEA-S are commonly seen in women with PCOS.
  3. Androstenedione: Androstenedione is another precursor to testosterone. Increased levels of androstenedione are often observed in women with PCOS.
  4. LH (luteinizing hormone): PCOS is associated with an imbalance in the levels of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Women with PCOS typically have higher levels of LH compared to FSH. This hormonal imbalance disrupts normal ovulation and leads to the formation of ovarian cysts.
  5. FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone): As mentioned above, women with PCOS often have lower levels of FSH compared to LH. This imbalance contributes to the irregular menstrual cycles and lack of ovulation seen in PCOS.
  6. SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin): SHBG is a protein that binds to testosterone and other sex hormones, regulating their availability in the body. Women with PCOS often have decreased levels of SHBG, leading to higher levels of free testosterone.

It is important to note that the steroid/androgen profile for PCOS may vary between individuals. Diagnosis of PCOS typically involves a combination of clinical symptoms, hormone testing, and ultrasound imaging of the ovaries. A comprehensive evaluation by a healthcare professional is necessary to accurately diagnose and manage PCOS.
