Male Hormones Test
Male Hormone blood test incudes: FSH, LH, Testosterone, SHBG, Prolactin, TSH, FT4
LH, FSH, SHBG, and testosterone are crucial male hormones that determine libido, muscular strength, energy, and sports performance, and our male hormone test kit tests them all. Find out if you're suffering from a hormonal imbalance that's affecting your health and performance.
Why to check male hormones level?
Our male hormone home blood test provides a thorough examination of all important male hormones. These men’s hormone test checks for LH (luteinizing hormone), FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), and SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin), and three distinct testosterone levels: total testosterone, free testosterone (calculated), and FAI (follicle-stimulating hormone-binding globulin) (free androgen index).
Testosterone is the predominant male hormone and its levels decline as men become older. However, ageing isn't the only factor affecting testosterone levels; overtraining can also cause them to drop.
Understanding and tracking your levels of these critical biomarkers over time can help you manage symptoms including weariness, loss of libido, weight gain, and poor athletic performance.
What are male hormones?
Testosterone is the most common male hormone found in the blood. This male hormone has a variety of impacts on the body. Testosterone, for example, helps to maintain body composition and haemoglobin levels, which transport oxygen throughout the body. Suboptimal testosterone levels, on the other hand, will result in decreased libido and weariness.
The most frequent biomarker is total testosterone, which comprises both bound and free testosterone in the body. The bulk of testosterone is attached to sex hormone binding globulin, a transport protein (SHBG). So, if you know your total testosterone and SHBG levels, you can compute free testosterone.
Your thyroid function is also assessed with our male hormone test kit. The thyroid gland is vital for metabolism, or how quickly your body's cells operate. Thyroid hormone imbalances, such as TSH or thyroxine, can cause symptoms such as mood swings, weight loss or increase, and muscle and bone discomfort.
