This hormone blood test measures levels of the key hormones and androgens that play an important role in governing masculinity and fertility. Please contact us if you need a sensitive oestradiol assay performed.
Testosterone is an anabolic hormone responsible for bone and muscle strength, as well as mood, energy and sexual function.
Most testosterone is strongly bound to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). This test measures the proportion of unbound testosterone which is available to the body's tissues.
SHBG is a protein that binds tightly to testosterone and oestradiol. Changes in SHBG can affect the amount of hormone available for use by the body's tissues.
In men, oestradiol also known as oestrogen, is essential for maintaining bone health, regulating cholesterol levels, and supporting healthy brain function.
Levels of FSH in men rise with age, but can also indicate testicular damage and reduced sperm production. Low levels of FSH are detected when men are not producing sperm.
LH is responsible for stimulating testosterone production and sperm generation. Raised LH can signal that the testes are not producing enough testosterone and is relevant when evaluating hypogonadism.
Progesterone has two major effects in men - it promotes testosterone production, and also modulates the effects of excessive oestrogen.
A hormone which is produced in the pituitary gland and plays a role in reproductive health. Raised levels in men can cause reduced sex drive, lack of energy, erectile dysfunction and fertility problems.
