PCOD profile is designed
for the monitoring of patients with Polycystic Ovarian Disorder / Syndrome
(PCOD / PCOS). In PCOD, the ovaries release immature follicles which turn into
cysts. In many cases, the body also releases more androgens which further affect
the hormonal balance and woman’s secretion behaviour (skip or irregular
menstrual periods and makes it harder to get pregnant). If it’s not addressed
in time, it can lead to future complications (infertility, diabetes, obesity). Hence,
it is well recommended for females to get their PCOD blood tests to avoid
unnecessary health risks.
