A hormone panel is a group of blood tests that measure the levels of various hormones in the body. Hormones are chemical messengers that play a crucial role in regulating many bodily functions, such as metabolism, growth and development, and reproductive processes. A hormone panel may include tests for hormones produced by the thyroid, adrenal glands, pituitary gland, and reproductive organs. The test can be used to diagnose hormonal imbalances and conditions such as thyroid disorders, diabetes, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). It may also be used to monitor hormone levels during and after treatment for these conditions.
