TESTOSTERONE ADVANCED

INFORMATION

Testosterone is for men and women who wish to check their current levels of testosterone up to 502 nmol/l Also known as an E2 test or Estrogen, Oestriodial is a steroid hormone that accounts for 80% of the oestrogen in the female body.
It works hand in hand with Testosterone and although it comes in smaller quantities in a man, it can be affected by changing testosterone levels, This is why this test with both hormones together can be affective for men and women.

Free Testosterone is just as important as Testosterone. It tell you if your body is processing the Testosterone in the most efficient way.

We check the SHBG and Albumin along with your Testosterone and calculate Free Testosterone.

  • Low – free testosterone could show symptoms like: low mood, trouble gaining muscle mass or low libido.
  • High – free testosterone can effect the production of other hormones.

Test Included

HORMONES

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

Oestradiol is a steroid hormone that accounts for 80% of the oestrogen in the female body. It is secreted by the ovaries and is responsible for the development and maintenance of reproductive structures, including fat distribution, preparing the follicle in the ovary for the release of an egg and helping to maintain bone density. This blood test measures the level of oestradiol in your body.

Testosterone, oestrogen and dihydrotestosterone are all bound to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) which means that they are unavailable to your cells. Measuring the levels of SHBG in the blood gives important information about your levels of free or unbound hormones which are biologically active and available for use.

Albumin is mostly made in your liver and helps to keep the blood from leaking out of blood vessels. It also helps carry medicines through the blood and is important for tissue growth and healing.

Lower albumin levels may be an indication of a liver disease and can also be an indication of chronic ill-health, malnutrition and inflammation. It can also occur in kidney conditions such as nephrotic syndrome and diabetes.

higher levels are usually caused by dehydration.
