IMatrix® FEMALE PANEL

Resulted using one of the most sensitive testing methodologies available in the laboratory industry, our iMatrix Female Panel is one that will offer the patient pertinent information about her health in a way that is noninvasive, and very convenient for the patient.

This panel looks at key hormones to discover the number of free, or unbound, components of that hormone that is present in the patients system to determine if treatment is necessary for the patient to help her to balance her hormones and get back to living life in an exuberant manner.

Consult your results with your physician to make the most of them and develop a plan that will work based on your iMatrix report.

Panel Breakdown
  • Estradiol - is produced by the ovaries and known as the "active" estrogen—the one that can achieve the fullest range of estrogen effects because it goes out there in our tissues and sockets into estrogen receptors and causes estrogen effects
  • Estriol - typically produced by special belly fat cells, and is the major estrogenic form found in naturally-menopausal women who are not taking Hormone Replacement Therapy. It is not directly active in as many tissues as estradiol is, but can be readily converted to estradiol for actual use
  • Estrone- a steroid hormone released by the corpus luteum that stimulates the uterus to prepare for pregnancy. It helps determine the cause of infertility, it tracks ovulation, help diagnose a failing pregnancy, monitors the health of a pregnancy, and can help diagnose the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Progesterone- a steroid hormone released by the corpus luteum that stimulates the uterus to prepare for pregnancy. It helps determine the cause of infertility, it tracks ovulation, help diagnose a failing pregnancy, monitors the health of a pregnancy, and can help diagnose the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Testosterone - a hormone (commonly produced in males, but is also in females in small amounts) that affects sexual features and development. In men, it is made in large amounts by the testicles. In both men and women, testosterone is made in small amounts by the adrenal glands, and in women, by the ovaries
  • DHEA - helps evaluate adrenal gland function. Used to detect adrenal tumors or cancers
  • Cortisol- a hormone that plays a role in the metabolism of proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates, among other functions. Can be used to detect conditions affecting the pituitary or adrenal glands and help diagnose adrenal insufficiency or Addison disease, conditions associated with deficient cortisol.
  • Melatonin- a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, a small gland in the brain, that inhibits melanin formation and is thought to be concerned with regulating the reproductive cycle. It sends signals to regulate the sleep-wake cycle in the sleep center of the brain and helps control your sleep and wake cycles
