The endocrine system consisting of several glands such as pineal, pituitary, and thyroid and secretory organs such as hypothalamus and pancreas, releases hormones directly into the blood stream and regulate the body functioning. Some hormones (cortisol, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone) have a daily or monthly pattern of release. Other hormones are generally present in very small quantities in the blood and are released in specific situations, such as the release of epinephrine (adrenaline) from the adrenal glands in response to stress. The goals of endocrine testing are to identify the hormone(s) that are being over or under-produced, to determine which gland(s) are involved, and to determine the cause of the hormone imbalance. This may involve measuring hormone levels and their metabolites in the blood and/or urine. Stimulation or suppression testing may be utilized to evaluate hormone production and/or gland interaction with other glands and hormones. The endocrine laboratory tests help in detecting the deviations in the secretion of the hormones to understand the disorders like infertility, menopause, thyroid dysfunction. The major driving factors of endocrine laboratory testing market includes increasing health care awareness rise of endocrine disorders such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, and infertility, and advancement of the technology.
