Androstenedione is useful when evaluating patients with androgen excess and managing patients with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH).

AMH-MIS may be used in the investigation of ovarian reserve since AMH concentrations in adult women reflect the number of small antral and preantral follicles entering the growth phase of their life cycle. These follicles are proportional to the number of primordial follicles that still remain in the ovary, or the ovarian reserve.
AMH decreases throughout a woman's reproductive life, which reflects the continuous decline of the oocyte/follicle pool with age and, accordingly, ovarian aging.

Apolipoprotein A1 (APO A1) has been reported to be a better predictor than HDL cholesterol and triglycerides for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Low levels of APO A1 in serum are associated with increased risk of CAD. The measurement of APO A1 may be of value in identifying patients with atherosclerosis. Apolipoprotein B (APO B) has been reported to be a more powerful indicator of CAD than total cholesterol or LDL cholesterol in angiographic CAD and in survivors of myocardial infarction. In some patients with CAD, APO B is elevated even in the presence of normal LDL cholesterol.

Increased CRP levels are found in inflammatory conditions including: bacterial infection, rheumatic fever, active arthritis, myocardial infarction, malignancies and in the post-operative state. This test cannot detect the relatively small elevations of CRP that are associated with increased cardiovascular risk.

C-Reactive Protein Cardiac (hs CRP) Useful in predicting risk for cardiovascular disease.

The CA 125 level can provide prognostic information in the follow-up management of patients with ovarian carcinoma. The assay should be used as an adjunctive test in the management of ovarian cancer patients. CA 125 is not recommended as a cancer screening procedure to detect cancer in the general population

CA 15-3 may be useful for monitoring patients with metastatic breast cancer and certain ovarian cancers. The CA 15-3 values from sequential samples have a high correlation with the clinical course in most patients with metastatic breast cancer.

A large percentage of patients with gastrointestinal tumors (such as pancreatic, liver, gastric, colorectal tumors) and some other malignancies have been shown to have elevated serum CA 19-9 levels. Serum CA 19-9 levels may be useful for monitoring disease activity or predicting relapse following treatment. CA 19-9 should not be used as a screening test.

CA 27.29 may be useful for monitoring patients for metastatic breast cancer.

This test determines the subtypes of apoe which will aid in the risk assessment of corornary heart disease (CHD) and hyperlipoproteinemia.

There is a correlation between increased risk of premature heart disease with decreasing size of LDL particles. Ion mobility offers the only direct measurement of lipoprotein particle size and concentration for each lipoprotein from HDL3 to large VLDL.

Cardiolipin antibodies (CA) are seen in a subgroup of patients with autoimmune disorders, particularly Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), who are at risk for vascular thrombosis, thrombocytopenia, cerebral infarct and/or recurrent spontaneous abortion. Elevations of CA associated with increased risk have also been seen in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, and primary Sjögren's syndrome.

Increased serum CEA levels have been detected in persons with primary colorectal cancer and in patients with other malignancies involving the gastrointestinal tract, breast, lung, ovarian, prostatic, liver and pancreatic cancers. Elevated serum CEA levels have also been detected in patients with nonmalignant disease, especially patients who are older or who are smokers. CEA levels are not useful in screening the general population for undetected cancers. However, CEA levels provide important information about patient prognosis, recurrence of tumors after surgical removal, and effectiveness of therapy.

Do you find it challenging to keep track of your health? If you're in your 20s, you might not think you have anything to worry about when it comes to your health.

A female wellness checkup has the potential to save lives. After heart disease, cancer is the second most frequent cause of death in women in the U.S. Research has suggested that taking part in a wellness checkup can detect cancer and other illnesses early and improve the chances of successful treatment.

What Is Women's Wellness?

Female or women's wellness focuses on the physical and mental wellbeing of women. Women experience specific health concerns such as menopause, cervical cancer, and stress-related illnesses that deserve their own attention.

In a recent study, 50% of women stated that "stressing about life" was the most significant wellness challenge. 

Signs and Symptoms of Poor Female Wellness

As you get older, health issues are more likely to occur. Some common signs of poor women's health are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Constant nausea
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Persistent fever
  • Struggling to sleep
  • Exhaustion
  • Memory problems

Order a baseline women's wellness checkup if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or generally feel in poor health.

What Causes a Decline in Women's Wellness?

There are many causes of poor health and wellbeing in women. Smoking, alcoholism, lack of health care, and other lifestyle choices can lead to more serious health problems down the line. 

High Cholesterol

Eating a diet high in cholesterol can lead to diabetes, kidney disease, and high blood pressure. Drinking lots of alcohol and avoiding exercise can also contribute to high cholesterol levels. 

High Blood Pressure

Many women have no idea they are suffering from high blood pressure because there are no symptoms. High blood pressure (also known as hypertension) often goes untreated in young adults

Lack of Exercise

Physical activity can improve your mood and reduce the risk of chronic disease. Regular exercise also helps boost your levels of "good" cholesterol. Taking part in physical activity can also reduce the risk of heart disease and obesity. 

Risk Factors for a Decline in Women's Wellness

Many symptoms of poor women's wellness can go unnoticed and untreated. This can lead to chronic health problems, preventable diseases, and even death. For example, heart disease is a preventable illness that accounts for 27% of female deaths in the US.

With regular wellness checkups, women can identify health problems early and begin treatment.

How Is Women's Wellness Measured with Lab Tests?

Lab tests use a large variety of biomarkers to identify risk factors of disease. A wide range of women's wellness tests are available for testing specific conditions.

If you are a healthy woman under 50, you should have a wellness checkup once every three years. Women ages 40 plus should have an annual wellness visit to prevent disease and health problems.

Tests That Effect Women's Hormone Health

Several key biomarkers are essential for female health. You may wish to order some of the following tests if you want to investigate your hormone balance, health, and wellbeing.


Estradiol maintains and matures the reproductive system. Estradiol levels increase during menstruation and cause the maturation and release of an egg. High levels of estradiol are linked with acne, depression, and an increased risk of breast cancer. 


Estrogen helps to maintain the female reproductive system. It also plays a role in bone and cholesterol metabolism. Low estrogen levels can cause headaches, fatigue, depression, and poor bone health. 


Progesterone is made by the ovaries and plays an important role in pregnancy and the production of breastmilk. Progesterone testing can find the cause of infertility, miscarriage, or investigate ovulation.

Other markers you may wish to include in your women's wellness test are:

  • Estriol (one of the three main estrogens)
  • Calcium 
  • Testosterone
  • FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone)
  • LH (Sexual Development and Functioning)
