Description

Testosterone is a sex hormone and is produced by both men and women and is important as it affects bone and muscle mass, how fat is stored in the body and the production of red blood cells. Testosterone also affects our sex drive, in the case of too low a value of testosterone, problems such as reduced, or no, sex drive can occur.

Low levels of testosterone are associated with low energy and can affect sleep. Testosterone can also be affected by high levels of physical and mental stress. By testing yourself, you get an overview of your values and if you possibly is in the zone of testosterone deficiency, hypogonadism. This test measures free testosterone.

This is how it works: The test is performed through a saliva sample. Testosterone sampling in the morning can limit the effects of diurnal variation, therefore we recommend that the test be done between 08:00 and 09:00. Read more below.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 15 working days after our lab receives your sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test answer, you will receive a detailed report in Swedish about your values.

Information

Why testosterone is an important hormone

Testosterone is a sex hormone and is produced in the Leydig cells in the testicles in men and in the ovaries and adrenal glands in women. The amount of testosterone is significantly higher in men than in women. The hormone has a great importance for the body's muscle structure, skeleton and sex drive. It also helps us to have a good mood and keep going when, for example, physical activity.

During puberty, the amount of testosterone increases and around the age of 25 it is usually at its highest. After that, testosterone continues to form throughout life in a smaller amount. From the age of about 40, it is common for the amount of testosterone to decrease a little each year.

Symptoms of testosterone deficiency

Testosterone's ability is to help the body be strong and feel that it is at its best. If, for example, you experience problems such as reduced, or no, sex drive, this may be because you have too low a level of testosterone. Here are common symptoms of testosterone deficiency:

  • ✓ depressed mood
  • ✓ listlessness
  • ✓ fatigue
  • ✓ fewer morning erections (men)
  • ✓ reduced sex drive
  • ✓ no sex drive
  • ✓ impotence
  • ✓ reduced muscle mass
  • ✓ anger
  • ✓ easily irritated
  • ✓ sleep problems
  • ✓ increased amount of fat

When should I test my testosterone level

Testosterone is secreted throughout the day and therefore testosterone levels vary depending on when during the day you test yourself. In the morning, peak levels are reached between 07.00 and 10.00. Towards the evening it drops slightly before the levels begin to rise again during the night.

Testosterone sampling in the morning can limit the effects of diurnal variation, therefore we recommend that the test be done between 08:00 and 09:00.
