Testosterone Level Testing at The Health Dispensary

At The Health Dispensary in Neath, we are dedicated to providing top-notch health and wellness services to our community. As part of our commitment to your well-being, we offer comprehensive blood tests to measure Total and Free (available) Testosterone levels for both males and females. Understanding your testosterone levels is crucial for maintaining optimal health and addressing various medical conditions effectively.

Why Test for Testosterone?

Testosterone is a vital hormone that plays a significant role in numerous bodily functions. It is essential for both males and females, influencing physical and mental health in various ways:

– In Men: Testosterone is crucial for muscle mass, bone density, fat distribution, red blood cell production, and overall mood and energy levels. Low testosterone can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, depression, reduced libido, and decreased muscle mass.

– In Women: Although present in smaller amounts, testosterone in women is important for bone strength, cognitive function, and sexual health. Imbalances can result in symptoms like low libido, mood swings, and decreased energy.


Total and Free Testosterone Levels

Our blood tests measure two key types of testosterone:

1. Total Testosterone: This test measures the total amount of testosterone in your blood, including both bound and unbound (free) testosterone.

2. Free Testosterone: This test specifically measures the testosterone that is not bound to proteins in the blood, making it readily available for use by your body.

By evaluating both total and free testosterone levels, we provide a more comprehensive understanding of your hormonal health. This knowledge can help you identify potential issues that may not be apparent with a single measurement, leading to early intervention and better health management.

Who Should Get Tested?

Testing for testosterone levels can be beneficial for anyone experiencing symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. Common reasons to get tested include:

– For Men: Decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depression, loss of muscle mass, and increased body fat.

– For Women: Low libido, unexplained fatigue, mood changes, and irregular menstrual cycles.

– Both Genders: Concerns about bone density, unexplained weight changes, or persistent mental health issues.
