Testosterone Testing

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)

Price: $122.99

The Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) test measures the level of DHT, a naturally occurring androgen which aids in the development of the prostate and male genitalia, in a patient’s blood. A significant deviation from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.


Includes: Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), serum. Estimated turnaround for results is 7 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.


Patient Instructions:
   

Testosterone (Free), Serum (Equilibrium Ultrafiltration) with Total Testosterone

Price: $91.49

The Testosterone (Free), Serum (Equilibrium Ultrafiltration) with Total Testosterone test determines the level of free and total testosterone in male patients.


Includes: Total, free, and percent free testosterone.


Patient Instructions: If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results.

Estimated turnaround for results is 5 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.
   

Testosterone, Free (Direct) with Total Testosterone, LC/MS-MS

Price: $92.49

The Testosterone, Free (Direct) with Total Testosterone, LC/MS-MS test evaluates patients for hirsutism, or masculinization, in women. It also evaluates testicular function in clinical states in which testosterone-binding proteins may be altered (obesity, cirrhosis, and thyroid disorders).


Includes: Testosterone Free, Testosterone Total


Patient Instructions: If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results.

Estimated turnaround for results is 7 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.
   

Testosterone, Free (Direct), Serum

Price: $71.49

The Testosterone, Free (Direct), Serum test evaluates female patients for hirsutism (masculinization), as well as evaluating male patients for testicular function in clinical states where the testosterone binding proteins may be altered (obesity, cirrhosis, and thyroid disorders).


Includes: Testosterone, Free (Direct), Serum (Only)


Patient Instructions: If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results.

Patient Instructions: If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results.
   

Testosterone, Free and Weakly Bound

Price: $92.49

The Testosterone, Free and Weakly Bound test, also known as a bioavailable testosterone test, can help in determining an individual’s biologically active, circulating testosterone. FWBT includes free testosterone and testosterone that is bound to albumin. FWBT does not include sex hormone binding globulin-bound testosterone. The SHBG-bound fraction is biologically inactive because of the high binding affinity of SHBG for testosterone. The rapid dissociation of “weakly bound” testosterone from albumin results in the availability of essentially all albumin-bound testosterone for steroid-receptor interaction.


Includes:
Total testosterone,
% Free+Weakly Bound Testosterone,
F+W Bound Testosterone


Patient Instructions: If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results.

Estimated turnaround for results is 7 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.

What is a Testosterone Test?

A Testosterone test measures levels of the male hormone, also known as androgen, in a patient’s blood. Testosterone plays a vital role in a person’s overall development and development of their sexual characteristics, particularly in men, where it is made in significant quantities by the testicles. Yet, in both women and men, testosterone is also produced by the adrenal glands, as well as in the ovaries by women. Testosterone levels are controlled by the pituitary gland, and when levels become low, the pituitary gland releases luteinizing hormone (LH) to have the testicles produce more testosterone.

Who May Need a Testosterone Test?

Testosterone tests are performed for a number of reasons, yet the most common reasons for taking the test include determining the reason a male is having difficulties with infertility, and also why a male is having issues with their sex drive. Low levels of testosterone can lead to both low sperm counts as well as erectile dysfunction in men. These types of tests are also used to assess whether the hormone is playing a part in the early or late development (puberty) in children, as well as why a woman may be having irregular menstrual periods or developing male features, including the presence of excessive body or facial hair and a deepening voice.

What Should I Expect from My Testosterone Test?

Testosterone tests begin by drawing a sample of blood from a patient, usually early in the morning when levels are at their peak, in order to have it analyzed by the lab. Results from these tests can vary depending on a number of factors, including the sex of the patient, their age, and the level of maturation in an individual. Testosterone levels normally decline during a patient’s 30’s and may be affected by things such as the use of certain medications, chronic illness, and obesity. While normal values vary from lab to lab, many share a common reference range, and should be discussed with your physician after receiving the results of your test.
