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.
This hormone profile has been designed to help men monitor their hormone levels when they are taking testosterone replacement therapy. It is important to keep hormone levels within the normal range when on TRT; taking too much testosterone can lead to elevated oestradiol as more testosterone is converted to oestradiol through the armoatase enzyme. High oestradiol levels are also correlated with high prolactin. Monitoring your hormone levels will give you and your practitioner the necessary information to optimise your dose.

Dr Sam Rodgers MBBS, MRCGP
