There is a new approach to the treatment of aging. It is to treat aging as a disease. This requires being proactive with respect to the treatment of aging. Before starting any aging therapies, it is important to test DHEA
and testosterone levels as well as HGH
, to name a few. Establishing baselines for some of these levels can help in proceeding to the proper focus of treatment with regard to aging. These levels can indicate whether or not a person is beginning to show major signs of aging. The tests will alert the person as to which levels may be falling in order to be treated by their physician for possible hormone replacement, or any other remedies associated with the aging process. The idea is to find where they are falling short and treat the particular hormonal shortage as a proactive approach to aging. Below you will find individual tests and also combination panels to test typical hormone levels:
Testing hormone levels for females is not just to combat aging. It also establishes baselines for hormones such as estrogen and progesterone and is necessary in order to diagnose menopause. Some of the symptoms of menopause can be physically uncomfortable and are treatable by hormone replacement therapy. Once the hormonal baselines are established, an individual can be treated by a physician for symptoms of menopause.
There are also specific tests for menopause. These tests can alert a woman as to what stage of menopause she may be in and that will allow for a better approach to treatment. Some women are just interested to know if they are in the menopausal stage and want to experience it naturally. Testing can put a woman's mind at peace to know all of her physical symptoms are attributable to menopause and not to a disease or illness. Some of the symptoms that are listed above can be quite alarming when they are first experienced. Testing would put a woman's mind to rest knowing that she is experiencing a normal life stage instead of illness.
