Testosterone Test

44,00 £

Testosterone is a sex hormone that is found in both women and men, but has significantly higher concentrations in men. Testosterone plays several significant roles in the body, especially for physical and genital functions, but it is also part of several metabolic pathways that lead to Red Blood Cells (RBC) production, bone metabolism, and liver function. If you have decreased levels it can lead to increased levels of body fat. As you get older, the production of testosterone decreases, which can lead to fatigue and poorer general health.

This test measures free testosterone in saliva, i.e. the active hormones that reach the receptors in our body.

Description

Testosterone plays a major role in the male development and its effects are first noted during the intrauterine phase. During fetal development, testosterone will induce the growth of male sex organs, which then becomes the cornerstone of puberty and sperm production later in life. Testosterone is also responsible for giving males their physical features and that is one of the reasons why men more easily can build muscles than women.

Aside from physical and genital functions, testosterone is also part of several metabolic pathways that lead to Red Blood Cells (RBC) production, bone metabolism, and liver function. Below we have listed some symptoms you can experience if you have a testosterone deficiency:

  • Decreased lean muscle mass
  • Loss of hair in some areas of the body (e.g. facial hair)
  • Atrophy of the sex organs (e.g. penis, testes)
  • Decreased libido
  • Reduced sperm count, and eventually infertility
  • Gynecomastia (male boobs)
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings, irritation and decreased concentration
  • A decline in mental clarity and performance
  • Increased risk of fractures due to low bone mineral density

Measure testosterone, DHEA and more

Testosterone is formed from DHEA and the levels of DHEA can thus directly affect the levels of testosterone. It can therefore be wise to measure both hormoner. If you are looking for a more comprehensive hormone panel for men, we recommend the test Men’s Hormone Profile.
