Specific medical conditions and other related issues in women often tend to occur due to hormonal irregularities. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
In addition, hormonal imbalances can also result in clinical complications such as diabetes, thyroid disease and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD). As such, a PCOD panel test can accurately detect the presence of the condition alongside other related issues.
Apollo 24|7 hosts a PCOD profile blood test package that includes 37 individual assessments, broadly categorised into the following:
Each of the listed categories deals with specific biological markers of PCOD. For instance, symptoms such as excessive hair growth or hair loss and thinning may be due to abnormalities with the FSH. Meanwhile, the DHEAS evaluation involves an assessment of the associated hormone to determine any irregularities with oestrogen production.
Note that while a PCOD panel test is primarily used to detect the condition, it is also helpful in pinpointing specific hormonal deviations unrelated to PCOD. The included CBC, for instance, can highlight any abnormalities in the white blood cell (WBC) and red blood cell (RBC) count.
In addition, doctors can use the test results from a lipid profile to determine the risk for cardiovascular conditions in women. In some cases, such clinical assessment can also detect the presence of specific types of pancreatitis.
A PCOD profile blood test is deemed to be a comprehensive women’s wellness or hormone test. Nonetheless, it may be challenging to recognise when you need to opt for such medical examinations. However, certain symptoms always manifest in the initial stages of hormonal imbalances. These clinical markers include:
Foregoing a clinical examination when at least two of the mentioned symptoms begin to manifest can result in severe medical complications and mental anxiety. For example, individuals with PCOD often experience infertility.
The condition can also increase your risk for metabolic disorders, diabetes, strokes and other heart diseases.
In rare cases, PCOD may result in endometrial cancer due to the uterine lining building up.
Thus, opting for a PCOD panel test can help identify the presence of related medical issues and prevent the development of other serious complications.
