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.
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 consumption, liver disease and steroid use can all negatively affect testosterone levels. In men, testosterone levels fall naturally after the age of 30 and for many men this decline is completely normal and causes no negative symptoms. For others, it can affect mood, motivation and libido as well as lead to a decrease in muscle mass. This age-related decline in testosterone is often referred to as the manopause or andropause. However, young men can also experience low testosterone levels which can affect their libido, fertility and ability to gain muscle in the gym.

Women also produce testosterone but in much smaller quantities. Excessive testosterone in women can cause unwanted male characteristics such as facial hair. Elevated testosterone in women is commonly associated with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Checking your testosterone level is easy with a simple finger-prick blood test you can do at home. Our doctors will report on your result and advise you on what action you can take if your testosterone is abnormal.

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 supra normal levels of testosterone.
