Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) & Luteinizing Hormone (LH) tests are used to determine the on-set and progress of menopause.
At American Metabolic Laboratories we are also using this measurement for eliminating the possibility of pituitary HCG-Like (HCG-L) hormone production. Generally FSH level below 40 will rule out this possibility.
FSH, LH & TSH are very similar to the HCG hormone. All four of these hormones possess identical alpha subunit chains where as the hormone specificity resides in the beta subunit.
Values obtained with different assay methods should not be used interchangeably.
