Testosterone is a steroid hormone that plays a key role in the development of secondary sex characteristics, fertility, muscle strength, and bone health.
Cortisol, known as the stress hormone, is released in response to stress or low blood glucose. Cortisol levels vary throughout the day and impact blood sugar levels, your metabolism, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and helps regulate blood pressure.
Prolactin is a hormone made in your pituitary gland and is responsible for testosterone secretion and sperm production.
A small amount of testosterone is converted into estradiol, the main form of estrogen in men. Estradiol is a steroid hormone that helps control erectile function, libido, and sperm production. Estradiol naturally increases as men age and as testosterone slowly decreases.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) is made by your liver. SHBG transports and controls how much of these hormones are available for your body to use. SHBG levels that are too high or too low can be a sign that there are too many or too few hormones available for your body to use.
Free Androgen Index (FAI)
Free Androgen Index (FAI) is a ratio that is calculated by comparing the total amount of testosterone against the levels of SHBG. It can help indicate how much free testosterone is available for your body to use.
Lifestyle factors, such as stress, can have a major impact on your health, hormones, fertility, and performance. Healthy sperm counts have dropped by 50% in the last 40 years globally, making male hormones a key concern in men's health.
