Testosterone

About this test

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. Testosterone levels naturally decline after the age of 30. 

Women taking oestrogen therapy, however, may exhibit increased testosterone levels.

This blood test checks for abnormal levels of testosterone, which may affect sexual libido, cause erectile problems and infertility in men and may promote male characteristics in women such as excessive hair.

Who is this test for?

This blood test is for men and women who want to determine their testosterone levels. It is also useful for men suffering from erectile problems, infertility or delayed puberty and for women who wish to investigate polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Tests Included

Hormone

Testosterone is a male sex hormone which is produced in the testicles of men and, in much smaller amounts, in the ovaries of women. It is responsible for bone and muscle strength, as well as mood, energy and sexual function.

Testosterone levels decline with age and it is unusual to find naturally elevated levels in men. Low testosterone is more common than raised testosterone in the absence of supplementation.

In women, raised testosterone can result in male characteristics such as body hair, greater bulk, a deeper voice and acne - all symptoms of polycystic ovaries, a condition in which elevated testosterone is commonly seen.
