What is a Male Hormone Test?
Changes in hormone levels can result in hair loss, lack of energy and vitality, and erectile dysfunction. In some cases, a gradual decline in testosterone levels can cause loss of libido, loss of muscle mass, and emotional symptoms such as depression.
Why consider a Male Hormone Test?
This test is suitable if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hair loss
- Low sex drive
- Cognitive decline
- Loss of muscle mass
- Memory loss
How does this test work?
This test requires a blood sample to be collected by your nurse or healthcare professional. Once your sample has been collected, place it in the envelope provided and send it to our accredited UK laboratory for fast and accurate analysis.
What tests will be run on my sample?
Our Male Hormone Test will assess the following:
- Luteinising Hormone (LH). This stimulates the production of testosterone.
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). This is important for the production of sperm.
- Free Androgen Index (FAI). A calculation used to determine the amount of testosterone which is free in the bloodstream to give a more accurate indication of testosterone status.
- Prolactin. A hormone which plays an important role in reproductive health.
- Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). A protein which carries hormones through the blood and controls the amount of testosterone body tissues can use.
