Male Hormone Check Blood Test
Is it for you?
Key biomarkers - see full list below
- You want a thorough check of your reproductive hormones
- You are experiencing symptoms like low libido which you think might be hormone-related
- You want to check your fertility
- You are struggling to gain muscle and you think low T (testosterone) might be the cause
DHEA-S is an androgen which is produced in the adrenal gland and is a precursor to testosterone. DHEA-S has many functions but plays a role in body composition (distribution of fat and muscle) as well as bone density. Androgen levels in men decline naturally with age and for some men this can lead to symptoms which are often known as the male menopause or andropause. Although less common, low testosterone can also affect younger men. Low testosterone can be caused by elevated prolactin levels and is often associated with raised oestradiol which can cause an increase in abdominal fat and breast tissue (gynaecomastia).
This profile also includes FSH and LH which are involved in stimulating the testes to produce testosterone, as well as sperm production and fertility. Our doctors will let you know if your hormones are within the normal ranges and advise you on whether you need to see your GP.
Please note, if you are taking any hormones such as testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) this can affect your results. Please let our doctors know if you are supplementing with hormones so that they can interpret your results more meaningfully.
