Our Complete Female Panel uses several tests to gain a broad view of your overall health. This comprehensive analysis tests for thyroid hormones, sex hormones, as well as general health markers, such as complete blood count (CBC) and a complete metabolic panel with lipids.

This test should be taken at least once a year to give you a broad overview of your health, hormone, and cholesterol levels, metabolism, and major organ function.

What is a Complete Female Panel?

A Complete Female Panel is a way for you and your doctor to monitor your hormone levels and get a sense of your overall health.

You must be 18 years or older to be eligible for the Complete Female Panel. The test is done in a matter of minutes by collecting a routine blood sample and running several tests or “panels” that assess hormone levels, and screen for particular biomarkers that could be indicative of metabolic disorders such as diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. The test also evaluates major organ function such as your kidneys and liver.

Your doctor would order this test as part of an initial physical or exam or any time he or she would like to get a good general snapshot of your overall health and to establish your baseline “numbers.”

Main Components of Complete Female Panel

  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel – This panel measures your blood glucose (sugar) levels and provides your doctor with valuable information about your kidney function, liver function, and your risk of diabetes.
  • CBC With Differential and Platelets – This tests different parts of your blood; it detects anemia, infection, bleeding disorders, and signs of systemic inflammation.
  • Lipid Panel – This is the test that gives a good picture of your risk for cardiovascular disease. It tests for your HDL (good) and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, as well as triglycerides.
  • Progesterone – Progesterone is one of the female sex hormones. It has functions in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Evaluating your progesterone level can let your doctor know about fertility issues and how close you are to menopause, and can also help diagnose conditions like adrenal fatigue.
  • IGF-1 – IGF-1 is a hormone related to the release and production of human growth hormone (HGH). Testing your IGF-1 level can let your doctor know if your HGH levels are in the normal range or if you could be suffering from adult-onset or “age-related” growth hormone deficiency.
  • Estradiol – While estradiol, or estrogen, is a female hormone, a man’s body does make estradiol as well, although to a significantly lower degree than a woman’s. Testing estradiol levels in males may be used to see whether too much estrogen is causing conditions such as delayed puberty, breast growth (gynecomastia), or infertility. Higher than normal estrogen levels in males could also be related to low testosterone.
  • Thyroid Hormones: TSH+Free T4, Triiodothyronine, Free, S – There are several different hormones produced by your thyroid. Testing the levels of thyroid hormone can tell you if you have conditions like hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).
  • Testosterone, Serum – Testosterone is a male hormone, but females make and need testosterone too. Low testosterone in women can cause fatigue, fertility issues, and symptoms of female sexual dysfunction.
  • Preparing for a Complete Female Panel

    It is recommended that you do not eat or drink anything except water for 8-12 hours before your test. If you are taking medications, including any hormones, check with your healthcare provider to see whether you should take them before the test.

    Interpreting the Results of Your CompleteFemale Panel

    After the test, when your results are ready, we will email them to you in a clear, easy-to-read report and also invite you in for a consultation with one of our healthcare providers. During this consultation, based on your results and other factors, we may recommend hormone therapy or other treatments as needed.

    Unless otherwise indicated, your test results are typically available within 24-72 business hours after the lab receives your sample. Most often, your test results will be emailed to you, or if you have access to a patient portal, you may be able to see them online. We only use highly skilled and qualified labs like LabCorp for our test panels, so your privacy and the accuracy of your results can be assured. On your report, you will see your levels or scores for a given test and what the normal range is for that component.

    I recently used the Complete Female Panel for comprehensive health screening. It efficiently tested my thyroid and sex hormones, along with key health markers like CBC and a complete metabolic panel with lipids. The results were insightful, helping me understand my health better and guiding my healthcare decisions
