Sex Hormone Binding Globulin Blood Test

$75.00

* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.

Description

Use:
SHBG and testosterone levels may be ordered for an adult male to help determine the cause of infertility, a decreased sex drive, and erectile dysfunction, especially when total testosterone results are inconsistent with clinical signs.

In women, SHBG and testosterone testing may be useful in helping to detect and evaluate excess testosterone production and/or decreased SHBG concentrations.

The concentration of testosterone in the various free and bound forms is essentially a function of total testosterone concentration and the relative concentrations of SHBG and albumin. Therefore it can be predicted that increased SHBG will decrease the concentration of both free and bioavailable testosterone for a given total testosterone concentration.

Recommended For:
Diagnosis for hirsutism, obesity, alopecia, female virilization.

Special Notes:
Testing for Sex hormone binding globulin which is a protein which binds reversibly with hormones testosterone and estradiol, carrying them to target organs.

Tests Included:
