Hormone Mini Check Male Blood Test

A simple finger-prick test to measure total and free testosterone (calculated), oestradiol and SHBG levels in the blood.

Is it for you?

Do you have symptoms like low libido, erectile dysfunction, or loss of motivation that makes you think that you could have low testosterone? Have you already had a test for low testosterone and now want to check your levels of free testosterone and oestradiol? Perhaps you're taking testosterone (TRT or steroids) and want to check that your oestradiol levels are normal. If you want a quick and easy check for male and female hormones, this test is for you.

Key biomarkers - see full list below

  • You are a man and you want to check your balance of male and female hormones
  • You are experiencing symptoms such as low libido which you think might be hormone related
  • You are a man with symptoms of gynaecomastia (man-boobs or moobs)
  • You are taking testosterone replacement (TRT) and want to check that your hormone levels are well controlled
Testosterone is a hormone that causes male characteristics. For men, it regulates sex drive and controls bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass, strength and the production of red blood cells and sperm. Heavy alcohol use, liver disease and steroids can cause a decrease in testosterone levels. Women taking oestrogen therapy, however, may exhibit increased testosterone levels.

Extended upper limit. Many testosterone tests will not measure testosterone levels above 52 nmol/L, our test will measure values up to 520 nmol/L. This is especially useful for men who are taking testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) or anabolic steroids and who expect to have supranormal levels of testosterone. Please note, if your reading is above 520nmol/L the lab will not be able to calculate a free testosterone or free androgen index value. If this is the case, you will not be entitled to a refund. 

Oestradiol is a steroid hormone and accounts for 80% of the oestrogen in women. 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, getting ready for fertility and helping to maintain bone density. In men, high levels of oestradiol can cause the development of breast tissue (gynaecomastia or man boobs) as well as affect sexual function. 

This blood test checks for unusual levels of testosterone and oestradiol, which may affect sexual libido, erectile function and fertility in men and 'male characteristics' in women such as excessive hair or help to explain abnormal periods, heavy bleeding or symptoms of menopause.
Please collect your sample in the morning.
