faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If my Testosterone, Total blood test results are positive, what should be my next step? Should I consult a specialist or make specific lifestyle changes?

Positive results from your total testosterone test indicate higher testosterone levels. This is not inherently harmful, but it may require further investigation if accompanied by symptoms such as excessive hair growth, irregular periods in women or mood changes in men. It would be wise to consult a specialist such as an endocrinologist who can provide advice tailored to your symptoms and overall health condition. lifestyle changes, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can also help manage testosterone levels.

Are there any alternative or complementary tests to consider alongside a Total Testosterone test for a more comprehensive assessment?

Yes, alongside a serum testosterone test, measuring free testosterone levels can provide additional insight into bioavailable hormone levels. Additionally, assessing other hormones such as SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) and DHEA-S (dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate) can offer a more comprehensive evaluation of testosterone status.

Are there any emerging technologies or advancements in Total Testosterone testing that I should be aware of?

Yes, advancements in mass spectrometry techniques have improved the accuracy and sensitivity of total testosterone test measurements, allowing for more precise testing even at lower concentrations. Additionally, there are ongoing efforts to develop point-of-care testing devices that could provide rapid results outside of traditional laboratory settings.

Can I drink water before the Total Testosterone test?

Yes, you can and should remain hydrated before your serum testosterone test. However, avoid any other beverages or food as advised by your doctor for accurate results.

How accurate is the Total Testosterone test for diagnosing hypogonadism?

The total testosterone test alone may not always be sufficient for diagnosing hypogonadism with high accuracy due to variability in levels and the influence of other factors. Doctors typically consider clinical symptoms, medical history, and potentially other hormone tests (such as free testosterone and SHBG) to make a more comprehensive assessment.

Can medications or medical conditions affect my Total Testosterone levels?

Yes, certain medications and medical conditions can affect total testosterone levels. For example, steroids, heart medications, antidepressants and prostate cancer drugs can influence your testosterone levels. Conditions such as obesity, diabetes, kidney disease and thyroid issues can also affect testosterone levels.

What factors can cause Total Testosterone levels to fluctuate?

Total testosterone levels can fluctuate due to factors such as age (typically declining with age), time of day (highest in the morning), stress, illness, medications (including steroids and opioids), obesity, and chronic conditions affecting the endocrine system.

What is the difference between Total Testosterone and Free Testosterone?

Total testosterone refers to the total amount of testosterone in the body, including both free and bound forms. On the other hand, free testosterone refers to testosterone that is not bound to proteins and is readily available for your body to use.

Can Total Testosterone levels affect fertility in men?

Yes, abnormal total testosterone levels can affect fertility in men. Low testosterone can lead to decreased sex drive and erectile dysfunction which can impact fertility. Conversely, high testosterone levels can also pose problems as it may indicate a hormonal imbalance that could interfere with sperm production.
