Testosterone Blood Test

When you want to take control of your health and well-being, a testosterone blood test can shed valuable information. Sometimes our hormones tell a bigger story about what's going on in different facets of our lives. From energy levels to sexual performance, the right testosterone levels are crucial for men and women.

What Are Testosterone Lab Tests?

Like the name implies, testosterone labs detect the levels of testosterone in your blood. These labs analyze your white blood cell counts, PSA totals, and platelet counts to provide a comprehensive picture of your body's health. These levels are also crucial to your peace of mind if you suspect something is wrong with your testosterone. 

How Does a Testosterone Blood Test Work?

It's unlikely your annual physical includes a look at your testosterone tests unless you've specially asked your doctor about it. As a result, you're missing key information about what's going on with your body. Testosterone tests are a powerful way to quickly learn about your hormones. After scheduling your tests, results typically arrive in 7 to 10 business days. The team at Genesis Labs sends a private, secure email to share your results privately. 

Do You Really Need a Testosterone Blood Test?

If you've never had a testosterone test, you may think it's fine to just wing it and guess whether or not you need a test. But only a lab-certified testosterone blood test can shed light on the true nature of what's going on with your body. With this information in hand, you can now work with your doctors or a healthcare professional about balancing your hormones for a better way to live.

What Does Testosterone Do for Your Body?

Testosterone is a hormone that plays a vital role in men's and women's health. It can impact muscle growth, strength, sexual function, genitalia and sperm production, and more. Testosterone usually isn't something women focus on, but it is still crucial to their overall health. Women's ovarian health and bone strength both require the right levels of testosterone.

What Happens If Your Testosterone Levels Are Abnormal?

If you discover your testosterone levels are unbalanced, it may be the reason for thinning hair or a low sperm count. If your levels are high, it's possible you're at a higher risk for health conditions, including prostate cancer. 

The good news is that if you're concerned about testosterone, our lab tests can help. They empower you to get the information you need to correct the problem. Whether you're exhausted or dealing with a poor libido, getting a handle on your testosterone levels could help.
