More than just a sex hormone

It’s not always obvious what could be causing issues such as a lack of energy, mood swings, low sex drive and abdominal fat. We often put these issues down to diet, lack of sleep or stress but there could be other underlying issues. This simple testosterone test can be used to identify a testosterone imbalance or provide insight into the onset of andropause (male menopause).


Testosterone production declines at the rate of approx. 1% each year after the age of 30, but in some men this decline is more rapid. It is quite common for men entering their 40s to experience a loss of sex drive, impotence and depression due to a natural reduction in testosterone production. For men of any age difficulty controlling body weight and the inability to build muscle may indicate a hormone imbalance. Find out more with this simple testosterone test.
