Low-cost blood testing at our Baton Rouge center focuses on hormones, nutrition, metabolic disorders, and preventable disease. A Rejuvime Medical physician assistant reviews the results with patients, helping them take control of their personal health care choices. We offer a comprehensive blood analysis for women and men from New Orleans and Shreveport, LA, and Jackson and Hattiesburg, MS.
Patients considering treatment at Rejuvime Medical start with a consultation and a comprehensive hormone and wellness panel, followed by a lab review and evaluation performed by one of our physician assistants.
Blood test results are usually available within a week.
For women, the blood panel provides a baseline overview of your sex hormones, thyroid gland, adrenal function, metabolic function, and overall health. We can use this hormone panel to diagnose testosterone and estrogen deficiency, health risks, and potential thyroid dysfunction prior to starting hormone replacement therapy. It also includes information about hematocrit (red blood cell volume), and liver and kidney function.*

Thyroid hormones regulate our body’s metabolism and influence virtually every organ system in the body. They tell organs how fast or slow they should work. Thyroid hormones also regulate the body’s consumption of oxygen and production of heat. Thyroid problems, such as an overactive or underactive thyroid, can severely affect metabolism. It’s important to know about several thyroid conditions. Our program includes comprehensive testing of the thyroid gland (TSH), in addition to the thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). When the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones, the body uses energy at a slower pace than it should. This condition, underactive thyroid, is called hypothyroidism. Customized medications are available to treat hypothyroidism.*
