    Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) test helps to determine the fertility issues, helps to test the health of ovaries or testicles, and helps in checking the functioning of the pituitary gland. Luteinizing hormone is also known as Interstitial Cell Stimulating Hormone. Luteinizing hormone test helps to evaluate fertility issues.

Thyroxine (T4, Total) test and Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), serum test helps to evaluate the functioning of thyroid gland and to help diagnose the disorders of thyroid. These tests measure the levels of thyroid hormones such as T4 and TSH in the blood.

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    FSH stands for follicle-stimulating hormone. In females, it helps in the reproduction and development of eggs. In males, it helps in the development of sperm.
    The signs and symptoms of pituitary disorder include headache, vision problems, unexplained tiredness, irritability, mood swings, changes in menstrual cycle in women, erectile dysfunction, infertility, inappropriate breast growth, Cushing’s syndrome, and Acromegaly.

    Yes, please inform your doctor if you are taking any medicines or supplements as it might interfere with the test results.
    The developmental defects that can cause an increase in levels of LH include failure to develop ovaries, chromosome disorder such as Turner syndrome, and defects in the production of steroids by ovaries.
    Damage to ovaries can occur due to exposure to radiation, chemotherapy, and autoimmune diseases. In these cases, the levels of LH increase.
    The conditions that can affect the function of the ovary leading to rising levels of LH include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), adrenal disease, and thyroid disease.
    Prolactinoma is a tumor of the pituitary gland that is non-cancerous. In this tumor, the pituitary gland produces an excess of prolactin hormone. This leads to a decrease in estrogen hormone in women and testosterone hormone in men.
    The signs and symptoms of Prolactinoma in males include erectile dysfunction, decrease hair on the face and the body, and enlarged breasts.
    The signs and symptoms of Prolactinoma in females include irregular or absence of menstrual periods, milky discharge from the breasts even if the female is not pregnant or breastfeeding, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, acne, and excessive hair growth on face and body.
    The signs and symptoms of Prolactinoma that are seen both in males and females include reduced bone density, loss of interest in sexual activity, headaches, visual disturbances, and infertility.
    Hypothyroidism refers to an underactive thyroid. It is a condition in which the thyroid gland is not able to produce sufficient thyroid hormones. The symptoms of hypothyroidism are not noticeable at an early stage. If left untreated, it can cause various health problems that include obesity, joint pain, infertility, and heart disease.
    Hyperthyroidism refers to an overactive thyroid. It is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces an excess of thyroid hormones. Hyperthyroidism can occur due to various conditions such as Grave’s disease, consuming excess iodine, inflammation of thyroid gland (thyroiditis), tumors of ovaries or testes, benign tumors of the thyroid or pituitary gland, and in cases if large amount of T4 is consumed through dietary supplements or medication.
    The signs of an underactive thyroid include slow heart rate, weight gain, enlarged thyroid, dry skin, constipation, trouble tolerating cold, pain in the muscle and joints, puffy skin, thinning of hair, hair loss, fatigue, depression, forgetfulness, heavy or irregular menstrual periods, and infertility in women.
    The signs of an overactive thyroid include rapid heart rate, anxiety, weight loss, difficulty in sleeping, tremors in the hands, muscle weakness, increased sweating, difficulty in tolerating heat, frequent bowel movements, puffiness around the eyes, dryness, irritation, excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, blurry double vision, bulging of eyes, and lighter or less frequent menstrual periods in women.
