Testosterone is a male hormone that helps to maintain bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, sex drive and sperm production. It is also produced in females in small amounts. Testosterone levels rise rapidly in men after puberty and as men age, levels of testosterone naturally decline by about 1% per year after age 30.
Total testosterone is the amount of testosterone that is circulating in the blood both free and the testosterone that is bound to any serum protein. This test will give you a better understanding of how much testosterone is in your blood.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
If you are taking testosterone or other anti-aging supplements you should consider this test. This test can help monitor testosterone levels while on testosterone replacement therapy.
Testosterone is important for muscle and bone growth and sexual function but too much can affect your body negatively.
