Tests Included

Testosterone

Testosterone is a male sex hormone which is produced in the testicles of men It is also produced in much smaller amounts, in the ovaries of women. Testosterone is responsible for your bone and muscle strength, mood, energy and sexual function.

Testosterone levels lower as you become older it is unusual to find naturally elevated levels in men. Low testosterone is more common than raised.

Raised testosterone for women can result in male characteristics such as body hair, greater bulk, a deeper voice and acne of which are all symptoms of polycystic ovaries, a condition in which elevated testosterone is commonly seen.

The Majority of testosterone circulating within the blood is bound to proteins, in particular SHBG and albumin only 2-3% of testosterone is free and available to cells. The test uses an algorithm to calculate the level of free or unbound testosterone in relation to total testosterone, SHBG and albumin.

A lower level in a male could lead to symptoms which include low libido, erectile dysfunction, depression and a difficulty in gaining muscle mass.

In women an increased level could be an indication of polycystic ovary syndrome

Haemocrit measures the amount of volume the red blood cells occupy within your blood.

Higher levels can typically result from a pregnancy, dehydration, living at a higher altitude as well as a greater lack of oxygen most likely from a chronic lung disease and possibly sleep apoea.

Lower levels typically point to anaemia.
