Dihydrotestosterone Blood Test

About this test

Dihydrotestosterone, DHT, is a byproduct of the male hormone testosterone and is considered to be the essential androgenic hormone. Its job is to make male primary sex characteristics during embryonic life in the womb. Dihydrotestosterone is also responsible for the development of most secondary sex characteristics in males at puberty and it continues to be important to male sexual function throughout adult life.

Elevated levels may indicate hypergonadism (when the testes do not function properly) or hirsutism (excessive hair growth on a woman's face and body). Low levels are found in men with testicular problems.

Please ensure your sample is collected in the morning. If you are tracking your results over time then it is vital that you always have your blood taken at the same time.

Who is this test for?

This test is for any man (and less so women) wishing to check their levels of dihydrotestosterone, the hormone essential for male sexual development.
