What do hormones do?

Different hormones have various roles to play in the human body. They regulate and maintain a person's ability to reproduce, trigger puberty, and aid overall health and development to name a few. If there’s an imbalance in your hormone levels, this might result in symptoms such as slower growth and fatigue, as well as decreased fertility.

Why might I need to monitor my hormones?

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms above, particularly during your ordinary day-to-day routine, we’d recommend taking the relevant hormone monitoring test. Some conditions will be caught at an early age, and some may occur later in life. If you’re noticing that during sport you’re not performing at the level you feel you should be, including muscle development and so on, you should have a check-up.

What is a Growth Hormone (GH)?

GH is needed for a child’s normal growth and development. It promotes the growth of the long bones from birth through puberty. Children with insufficient GH production grow more slowly and are small in size for their age; one of the first symptoms of growth hormone deficiency (GHD). It should be noted that short stature can also be related to familial traits or other genetic disorders.
