Hair Growth Blood Test Panel - More Information
The hair growth blood test panel measures levels of blood markers that might identify a cause for abnormal hair growth. This hirsutism lab test panel includes the androstenedione test, CBC lab test, CMP lab test, DHEA test, estradiol test, ferritin test, FSH test, iron & TIBC test, LH test, prolactin test, SHBG test, testosterone total and free test, and TSH test.
Abnormal hair growth can be stressful and embarrassing and can occur in both men and women. In most cases, abnormal hair growth, or hirsutism, is related to specific hormone imbalances which lead to excessive hair growth. The hormones that typically cause excessive hair growth are part of a class of hormones called androgens. Androgens include hormones such as testosterone and its precursor, androstenedione.
