Let’s Start With the Problem

Testosterone is the main sex hormone found in men. It controls male physical features. The testes (testicles) make testosterone. Women have testosterone, too, but in much smaller amounts than in men. The brain and pituitary gland, a small gland at the base of the brain, control production of testosterone by the testes. From there, testosterone moves through our blood to do its work. Your testosterone levels change from hour to hour. They tend to be highest in the morning and lowest at night. Unlike women, who experience a rapid drop in hormone levels at menopause, men experience a more gradual decrease of testosterone levels over time. For many reasons, testosterone can become—and stay—too low. Less often, testosterone levels can become too high. When this hormone is not in balance, health problems can result.

Work Toward Wellness

Before you can improve your hormone imbalance, you must start with a detailed assessment that offers real, meaningful insights. Measure your two major testosterone hormones to see where your testosterone levels are. With this actionable information, you can take the necessary steps to take control of your body and overall health.

Panels Tested

Testosterone

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and is considered an anabolic steroid. In females, Testosterone plays a role in the maintenance and development of bone mass and female reproductive tissues. In males, this primary sex hormone plays a critical role in male reproductive development and the generation of secondary male sex characteristics, like body hair and muscle mass.

Free Testosterone

A subset of Testosterone, Free Testosterone is the amount of testosterone in the bloodstream that has not bound to another molecule (sex hormone binding globulin or SHBG). So your Free Testosterone reading will always be less than your Testosterone reading, but understanding the percentage of total testosterone that is Free Testoterone can be useful to understanding how your sex hormones are functioning.
