Have your mood, sex drive, or energy levels been lower lately? A hormone imbalance may be the cause. This test provides a picture of your hormone levels to see if they are in the healthy range for your age group. If you are additionally curious about your fertility, please take a look at our Male Hormone Test – Advanced.

Testosterone is an important hormone which regulates a significant number of bodily functions from sex drive, fertility and mood, to muscle mass, fat distribution, and the production of red blood cells.

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) controls the quantity of hormones available for your body to use. Therefore, too much or too little SHBG can indicate that your body has more or less hormones available than what it needs.

Free Androgen Index (FAI) is a ratio calculated using testosterone and SHBG levels, to indicate how much free testosterone is available to be used for essential bodily functions.
