What is
androstenedione?

Androstenedione is produced by the ovaries, the testicles and the adrenal glands. It is a steroid hormone that occurs naturally in the body, responsible for male characteristics. Androstenedione is a metabolite of DHEA and is a direct precursor to the male hormone testosterone.


Why take an
Androstenedione Blood Test?

By measuring your androstenedione, you can assess the production of your testosterone and oestrogen. Our Androstenedione Blood Test can help investigate adrenal gland function, androgen production, and the function of your ovaries or testicles.


When should I
take this test?

Our Androstenedione Blood Test is usually recommended by a doctor after other test results (like testosterone) come back as abnormal.
