What Does It Test?


Male Hormones: 

The primary male hormone that is tested for is testosterone, which is responsible for vital male characteristics, regulating sex drive, controlling bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass, and the production of red blood cells and sperm. Produced in the testes of men, testosterone plays a vital role in a man’s athletic ability as well as fertility. Testosterone levels naturally decline past the age of 30; however, abnormally low levels can cause low libido, reduced muscle mass, poor fertility and fatigue.



Cholesterol:

Assessing total cholesterol levels, along with high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) and low-density lipoproteins (LDLs), offers a comprehensive understanding of cholesterol's impact on heart health. Monitoring cholesterol levels aids in gauging the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Despite cholesterol’s bad reputation, high-density lipoproteins are classed as ‘good cholesterol’ as they prevent cholesterol blocking and narrowing arteries by absorbing it and transporting it back to the liver for processing. 



Liver Function:

Testing liver function detects irregularities by measuring enzymes and markers, helping evaluate overall liver health. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) levels provide indications of potential liver, gallbladder, or bone diseases.


Kidney Function:

This test evaluates kidney health by measuring urea levels to assess waste filtration and creatinine levels as a marker for kidney function. The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) estimates the kidneys' filtering capacity on its ability to remove toxins from the bloodstream and the body.


Bone Health:

Assessing bone health checks for the impact of metabolic processes on skeletal structure. Low calcium levels may indicate a higher risk of osteoporosis and stress fractures.


Iron:

The test examines iron levels, binding capacity, and the body's ability to transport iron in the blood. It also measures ferritin levels, providing insights into stored iron levels and helping identify iron deficiency or anaemia.


Inflammation:

By measuring inflammatory markers, the test indicates potential inflammation, highlighting areas that may need attention and addressing potential chronic diseases.
