Postmenopause Panel (PostM) and Perimenopause Panel (PeriM)
Menopause is a natural and usually gradual change in glandular function in women resulting in substantial shifts in hormone levels. The Postmenopause Panel™ provides measurements of six key hormones: Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol (E3), Progesterone (P), Testosterone (T) and DHEA, DHEA-S (pooled). The Perimenopause Panel™ contains the same components as the Postmenopause Panel™ but sampled twice, 13-15 days apart. The inclusion of FSH and LH in the expanded Postmenopause Panel™ (ePostM™), extends the interpretation to include pituitary involvement.
