MyMedLab understands that personalized medicine is the future of healthcare and that Pinterest is the next generation social network. The MyMedlab female hormone Infographic is a visual representation of the hormonal changes and symptoms women experience throughout their lives. MyMedLab hopes the infographic will inspire women to take charge of their health now and share this new role with the other women in their lives.
“Mother’s Day is the perfect time for generations of women to talk about how hormones have affected their lives,” said Dr. Deleys Brandman. “Taking steps to prepare for the inevitable change is key to good physical and emotional health. My goal is to help young women, like my own daughters, do something for their future that I couldn’t do. Knowing our baseline hormone numbers means personalized treatment as we age.”
Hormones are chemicals your body releases in response to physiological changes. They are the messengers that carry information between cells and are the catalysts for growth, puberty, reproduction, mood changes, and many more bodily functions. Over fifty hormones form the elaborate weave of chemicals that are secreted from the thyroid, pancreas, adrenal, pituitary, thymus, pineal glands, and ovaries.
Fatigue, cravings for sweets, alcohol or carbohydrates, weight gain, hot flashes, night sweats, PMS, and feeling depressed or overwhelmed are just some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance. Women of all ages from puberty to menopause will be affected by their hormone levels.
Dr. Deleys Brandman has teamed up with MyMedLab to create a simple way for women of all ages to get the answers they need. The hormone test panel sells for $99, and it includes five of the most valuable numbers to know , including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and thyroid. The panel is available at over 2000 locations nationwide without the cost or inconvenience of a doctor’s visit just to have their blood drawn.
“In addition to starting the discussion between mothers and daughters,” said Chelia Laurance, MyMedLab’s Chief of Operations. “We want the infographic to show how banking your unique numbers today can help you make wise decisions about your health in the future. Women of all ages will use this new tool to better understand their own bodies. We’re empowering the next generation of women to work with their doctors and to get back to a level that’s their own. ”
Knowing “Your Normal” is the premise of the infographic and encourages women to be informed, empowered, and to get started with banking their hormone levels.
