Sometimes menopausal symptoms can be similar to symptoms caused by other medical conditions, and in some instances, it may be advisable to have blood tests to exclude other conditions. At times baseline hormone blood tests can be helpful.
Blood tests range from baseline hormone blood tests to a full panel including full blood count, kidney and liver function, thyroid tests, cholesterol, diabetic check, bone profile and vitamin D, iron, vitamin B12 and folate. Other blood tests are available if indicated.
Blood tests incur an additional charge to your appointment fee. You will be advised of the cost prior to any test being performed and given the option of whether to have the tests. If you decide to go ahead, the blood test will be taken by Dr Scott during your appointment and sent for analysis to the laboratory we use. Please see our fees section for current costs of blood tests.
Appointments can only be booked via telephone
