TRT Monitoring

About this test

Why take this test?

  • you are taking testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and you want to monitor your male and female hormones
     
  • you have changed your dose of testosterone replacement and you want to check the impact on your hormone levels
     
  • you are experiencing side-effects which you think might be caused by elevated oestradiol

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 testoterone 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.

Tests Included

Hormones

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.

Oestradiol is a female steroid hormone which is produced in the ovaries of women and to a much lesser extent in the testes of men. It is responsible for the female reproductive system as well as the growth of breast tissue and bone thickness. Oestradiol levels decline with age, culminating in the menopause when the ovaries stop producing eggs.

Raised oestradiol in women can cause acne, constipation, loss of sex drive and depression as well as raising the risk of uterine and breast cancer. 

Oestradiol can also be raised in men due to excess fat (which produces oestradiol) or in relation to testosterone levels which have declined with age. Raised oestradiol in men can cause the growth of breast tissue, the loss of libido and infertility.

Low levels of oestradiol in women can lead to osteoporosis, problems with the menstrual cycle and fertility as well as fatigue and depression. 

Prolactin is a hormone which is produced in the pituitary gland and plays a role in reproductive health. Its primary purpose is to stimulate milk production after childbirth, and in pregnant and breastfeeding women prolactin levels can soar. 

Raised levels in a woman who isn't pregnant or breastfeeding can signal fertility problems as well as irregular periods.

Raised levels in men can cause reduced sex drive, lack of energy, erectile disfunction and fertility problems.
