Methodology:

Preparation: You should collect your samples Monday-Friday, in the morning while fasting, and ensure your return is scheduled for the same day. Fasting means that you take the test in the morning before you have breakfast. You can still drink water when fasting.* Collect your cortisol saliva sample before your hormone blood sample, as taking blood samples can sometimes raise cortisol levels. Being unusually stressed, scared or injured will cause a temporary rise in your cortisol levels. Avoid vigorous exercise or sexual activity 24 hours beforehand. **Please note that certain medications such as anabolic steroids may impact your test results.

Test Results: 5-7 business days once the lab receives the specimen. May take longer based on weather, holiday or lab delays.

Description

Testosterone

Testosterone is a steroid hormone that plays a key role in the development of secondary sex characteristics, fertility, muscle strength, and bone health.

Cortisol

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

Prolactin is a hormone made in your pituitary gland and is responsible for testosterone secretion and sperm production.

Estradiol

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.

Imbalances of cortisol and male hormones, such as testosterone, can cause similar symptoms. The only way to know what may be causing your symptoms is to test.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalances may include:

  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low sex drive or libido
  • Infertility
  • Anxiety, depression or brain fog
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Enlarged breast tissue
  • Bloating
  • Headaches
  • Loss of bone density
  • Diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
  • Low blood sugar
  • High blood pressure
  • Weight changes

  • You are interested in learning more about your hormones
  • You suffer from chronic stress
  • You constantly feel run down
  • You are body-building competitively
  • You take or have taken anabolic steroids**
  • You are obese
