Free Testosterone Blood Test

A finger-prick blood test which measures the amount of testosterone that is free to bind with the body’s tissues. For men who suspect low testosterone.

Is it for you?

Are you experiencing symptoms of low testosterone such as low libido, low energy and mood or lack of muscle and want to check whether your levels are normal? Have you previously had a borderline low testosterone result and want to know how much of the testosterone in your body is available to use? Or perhaps you received a normal testosterone result but still experience symptoms associated with low testosterone? If so, then this test is for you.

Special instructions

Please take your sample in the morning. Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to handle hormone-gels or hormone-pessaries in the past 4 weeks. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor.
Total testosterone is the amount of testosterone present in the body. However, not all this testosterone is actually available for the body to use. This is because some of it is bound to a protein called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and so cannot be released for the cells to use. A proportion of testosterone is also loosely bound to another protein called albumin. The rest of the testosterone in the body, about 1-2%, is unbound or ‘free’ and therefore available for the cells to use.

This test looks at total testosterone, albumin and SHBG to give a calculation of the amount of testosterone available in the body for use by the cells.

This test is ideal for men who want to investigate symptoms of low testosterone, or for those who have previously had a normal or borderline low result but still suffer symptoms so want to investigate how much is available to their body’s tissues.
