How To Read Blood Test Results

During the course of your treatment at the Marion Gluck Clinic, you will be required to undergo blood tests in order for us to properly ascertain your hormonal health and measure your progress. We understand that it can often be difficult to read blood test results and want to make this process as easy as possible for you.

As part of your follow up appointments, your doctor will study your blood test results with you and discuss any relevant information within them. However, to help you better read blood test results in your own time, we wanted to provide you with the detailed information for each test.

We offer three main hormonal blood tests – Female Hormone Profile, Men’s Hormone Profile and Thyroid Profile. Each blood test identifies the different hormones that make up your hormonal profile, your levels of these hormones and the normal range that can be expected for each one. Your doctor will use the information on your blood test results to recommend a treatment plan and track any changes in your hormones resulting from medication or lifestyle changes.
