The Midwest’s most Progressive Clinical Laboratory Service
NTL’s endocrinology laboratory offers complete endocrine system testing to help physicians diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions that affect the endocrine system. These may include thyroid disorders, growth hormone deficiencies, infertility, cholesterol problems, obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and more.
Types of Endocrine System Testing
Many disruptions or disorders of the endocrine system require a complete battery of endocrine system evaluation tests. Our endocrine lab tests include an analysis of each crucial component of the endocrine system, to ensure that each is free from abnormalities and performing as it should. These components include the hypothalamus, pancreas, ovaries, testes, and the adrenal, pituitary, pineal, thyroid, and parathyroid glands. The endocrine glands and organs work together to communicate and regulate many different processes in the body including:
- Blood sugar control
- Sexual development and function
- Growth and development
- Regulation of heart rate and blood pressure
When the endocrine system is functioning correctly, hormones will be released to regulate certain changes within the body as necessary. If something isn’t functioning properly, the endocrine system may have difficulty regulating a certain response, and a hormone imbalance may occur. At NTL we analyze the endocrine system via detailed endocrine system testing and within endocrinology sub-specialties that are devoted to specific areas such as:
- Pediatric Endocrinology: hormones in children.
- Thyroid Endocrinology: how the thyroid affects metabolism.
- Endocrine Disruption: whether certain chemicals which mimic the effects of hormones are present.
