About the Testosterone Test London blood test

Testosterone Test London: Testosterone is responsible for controlling various functions in the body, including fertility, the development of sperm in men and even male sex characteristics such as a deeper voice and certain muscle developments. Testosterone also impacts the overall growth and development of muscle and reproductive tissue.

Taking a testosterone test can shed light on some of the functions controlled by this hormone.

There are many factors that can affect testosterone levels such as stress, lifestyle, diet, exercise, and more. Low testosterone levels can sometimes cause low sex drive and have a big impact on your mood and how well you feel. Both men and women may experience a natural decrease in their testosterone levels with age.

Low Testosterone Symptoms

  • Loss of energy
  • Low libido (sex drive)
  • Erection problems, especially a loss of morning erections
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability and anger
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flushes
  • Joint pains

What is a Testosterone Test?

A testosterone test measures the levels of the hormone in your body. Checking the levels of testosterone is vital for various reasons. 

Our testosterone blood test measures the total testosterone level, which refers to your body’s overall amount of testosterone. It can also measure the free testosterone levels, which represents the readily available hormone.  Blood testosterone tests also check the bioavailable testosterone levels, including free testosterone and testosterone bound to proteins.

Why Might You Need a Testosterone Test?

A testosterone test serves two main purposes. The first one is diagnosis. A doctor may check your testosterone levels to determine the cause of your symptoms. Testing can help identify deficiency or an elevated hormone level that might impact your health. The test may be a part of assessing if you have health conditions that can affect hormone levels. 

The test can help diagnose conditions in children and adults. Some of the conditions that can be diagnosed using a testosterone test include hair loss, infertility, low muscle mass, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction and development of breast tissue, among other conditions. 

The test can also be used to monitor your health over time. If you have had abnormal testosterone tests, follow-up testing may be used to track your testosterone level. Monitoring is essential if you have been taking hormone therapy to ensure the levels are maintained at a certain level.

When Should I Get A Testosterone Test?

Your doctor may order a testosterone test if you’re exhibiting symptoms that suggest your hormone levels may be out of normal range. In men, the test may be performed if you have symptoms that suggest low testosterone levels, such as; 

  • Early or late onset of puberty  
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Fertility problems 
  • Decrease in sex drive 
  • Osteoporosis or thinning of the bones 

Even if you don’t have such symptoms, your doctor might also require you to take the tests if you have a health condition that affects your hormone levels, such as HIV/AIDS, unexplained bone density loss, anaemia or infertility. Certain types of cancer treatments, such as radiation and chemotherapy to the testicles, might also require having your testosterone levels checked. 

In women, testosterone tests can be part of a diagnostic work-up if you show any physical changes that suggest a higher-than-normal testosterone level, such as; 

  • Irregular periods 
  • Loss of periods 
  • Changes in hair growth patterns 
  • Voice changes 
  • Enlarged clitoris 
  • Skin changes such as oily skin or acne

Benefits of Getting a Testosterone Test?

Taking a testosterone test has many benefits, including; 

  • Helping identify underlying conditions that might be affecting your health 
  • Helping you maintain a balanced and productive life by monitoring your hormone levels 
  • Accounting for certain physical changes in the body 
  • Determining fertility in men

Testosterone Testing in London FAQs

Q: How much is testosterone testing in London?

The cost of a testosterone test varies depending on the sample collected for the test and the clinic you go to. At The Scan Clinic, we have testosterone tests starting at only £109. You can contact us for additional information on the test and an accurate quote on the cost of the test. 

 

Q: How do I know if my testosterone is low?

There are many indicators that your testosterone levels are low. These include a reduced sex drive, loss of armpit or pubic hair, erectile dysfunction, and low muscle mass, among others. However, the only way to be certain that you have a low testosterone level is by having the testosterone done to monitor your levels because sometimes, these symptoms can be triggered by other conditions or factors in the body.

 

Q: Does masturbating reduce testosterone?

There is no scientific evidence to show that masturbation lowers your testosterone levels. As with sex, your testosterone levels increase during masturbation and, peak at climax and then drop to baseline levels post orgasm. This means that testosterone levels do not drop with increased masturbation.

 

Q: Can you regain lost testosterone?

If you have low testosterone levels, it is possible to increase the levels through various methods. Millions of men use testosterone replacement therapy to restore low levels and feel more energetic, sexually sharp and mentally alert. However, it is not that easy to replace testosterone. Many factors affect the T-levels in the body, including your general health. Observing an ideal body weight, exercising, sleeping well and avoiding addictive substances such as tobacco products, alcohol, and opioid medication are all ways to improve testosterone levels naturally.

Biomarker information for Testosterone Test London blood test

This blood test includes the biomarkers shown below along with information about each biomarker.
Testosterone

Testosterone is a hormone that causes male characteristics and plays a key role in the libido for men and women. For men, it helps to regulate sex drive and has a role in controlling bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass, strength and the production of red blood cells and sperm. Testosterone is produced in the testicles of men and, in much smaller amounts, in the ovaries of women.
Note: Reference ranges for Testosterone may vary from laboratory as they are based on the population they are testing. The normal range is set so that 95% of men will fall into it.

What does the Testosterone Test London blood test involve?

This blood test is just like a standard blood test.

You will be asked to uncover you left or right arm and suitable vein is found. A tourniquet will be placed and tightened around your upper arm allowing the veins to swell and a needle will be placed into your vein. A small quantity of blood is then drawn into tubes. Once the procedure is complete a small plaster will be placed onto the site which can be removed after a few hours.

How do I prepare

  • The blood test requires access to the area of interest, therefore, it is recommended to wear loose clothing to facilitate this process.
  • No specific preparation is required for this test.

I've been to this clinic 4 times over the past 7 years for both pregnancy scans and health scans.... What sterling services they consistently provide! Booking is always easy either online or over the phone, minimum waiting time, and calming environment. What's most impressive is that Mr Usman always explained the scan results thoroughly in a calm and professional way on site and in a report, and quickly spotted issues that both my hospital scan and community clinic scan completely missed (the sonographer at the hospital even asked where I did my scan as she was impressed)! This helped me eventually get timely referral and free from lots of stress. I always feel being well looked after by the team and will wholehearted recommend them to anyone who is looking for efficient, caring and professional help.read more
