Purpose of Testosterone Blood Test
The testosterone blood test tells you how much of the hormone testosterone you have in your body. The hormone testosterone is responsible for fertility, producing blood cells, your attitude, mental health, and many other vital things to your overall health.
What Does the Testosterone Blood Test Measure?
The testosterone test evaluates testicular function in men where obesity, liver or thyroid disorders may alter the testosterone binding proteins. For women, the testosterone lab test evaluates masculinization and hirsutism, which is unwanted hair growth on female body parts (i.e. facial beard or chest hair).
Taking a Testosterone Blood Test
A testosterone blood test will tell you your testosterone level and where you are at on the t level scale. You can measure your free testosterone and total testosterone. The free testosterone is not glued to any protein, and it is considered bioavailable. Total testosterone will measure your overall basic testosterone level.
Testosterone Blood Test Preparation
Testosterone lab test preparation doesn’t require you to do anything other than book your testosterone blood test with Personalabs; go to the lab and have your total testosterone or free testosterone blood test performed. No fasting is required for this type of blood test.
