Hormone Check

What do hormones do exactly?

Hormones are tiny chemicals made by your endocrine glands that travel in your blood to your organs and tissues, directing their functions.

Hormones control:

  • Metabolism
  • Sleep and wake cycle
  • Stress response
  • Reproduction
  • Body temperature
  • Mood
  • Hunger

When hormone levels are balanced, your body works as it should. However, any slight change in blood hormone levels disrupts body functions, affecting your physical and mental well-being.


When should I consider a hormone check?

Consider a hormone check if you’re not feeling like your normal self and there’s no clear explanation for why. Changes in hormone production may cause a wide range of symptoms, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Unwanted weight gain or weight loss
  • Mood swings
  • Hair loss
  • Dry skin
  • Sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Insatiable hunger or thirst
  • Joint pain

Many health conditions are caused by changes in hormone production or function, including thyroid diseases, diabetes, and weight challenges.

However, everyone experiences changes in sex hormone production as you get older. That includes the male sex hormone testosterone and the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone.

Changes in sex hormone levels cause many of the health issues you may dismiss as a normal part of the aging process, like weight gain, hair loss, and low libido.

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms or have concerns about hormone levels, schedule a hormone check at Low Cost Health Clinics.


What does a hormone check look for?

A hormone check at Low Cost Health Clinics may look for an imbalance of any hormone. Your provider determines what to test for after a history and physical exam. Most hormone check tests look at sex hormone levels, thyroid hormones, or adrenal gland hormones (stress hormones).

Low Cost Health Clinics performs your lab draw for your hormone check in-house.


When can I expect results from a hormone check?

You can expect results from your hormone check within 1-3 days. Your provider at Low Cost Health Clinics may call you or have you return to the clinic to discuss the results and treatment options.

Low Cost Health Clinics provides affordable health care, including blood draws that check your hormone levels. To better meet the needs of their diverse community, each clinic has bilingual staff that speaks English and Spanish.
