Is your testosterone too high or too low? Find out with a home test kit
Testosterone testing at home is an affordable and convenient way to be proactive about your health. Testosterone plays a central role in male and female sexuality and reproduction. It also affects muscle mass, energy levels, and hair growth and hair loss.
Measuring it may help identify early signs of imbalance and discover the causes of symptoms you may be experiencing. Even though testosterone is important to both male and female health, regular physical exams usually do not include testosterone measuring. Testosterone is measured in nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL)
What is testosterone?
Testosterone is a sex hormone known as an androgen. It is mostly associated with male secondary sex characteristics but testosterone is not unique to men. Testosterone also plays an important role in women's reproductive health and sexual health. A little known fact is that estrogen is derived from testosterone. Women with low testosterone levels are susceptible to low estrogen levels.
Testosterone imbalance in men can cause a host of health conditions and symptoms. Age and medical history also play a role. Female testosterone levels are naturally lower than men's. Research shows testosterone imbalance in women cause health issues and unwanted symptoms. Women's testosterone declines with age normally. Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can cause elevated testosterone. Menopause can cause low-T in women.
This test measures total testosterone vs a test that only measures "free" testosterone.
What is the difference between total testosterone and free?
"Free" testosterone tests measure the amount of testosterone that can be used by the body. This is known as bioavailability. A total testosterone test measures the entire amount in the blood. The free level of any sex hormone can be low compared to its total level if there is an excess of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). SBGH is a protein that attaches itself to sex hormones making them not usable to the body. A total testosterone test can be a first step in identifying testosterone imbalance and then determining whether further testing or treatment may be required.
