Testosterone Total Test in Panchkula

Testosterone is a male-dominating hormone, but it is also found in females. In males, it has some unique functions like helping with stamina, enhancing muscle mass, regulating sperm formation and sex drive, and much more. This hormone also affects mood or behavior and masculine characteristics and is an essential hormone for male reproductive health.

Testosterone hormone levels in males

Its low level may cause erectile dysfunction, male infertility or impotence, low stamina and strength, weight gain, weak bones, low libido, etc. But a high level of testosterone happens infrequently, and most of the time, it doesn't cause any major concern.

Testosterone hormone levels in females

In females, it is generally found in a lower amount than in males, and its high level is responsible for the appearance of male traits in a woman. Women with high testosterone levels exhibit specific symptoms such as irregular or absent menstruation, excess acne and male pattern facial hair, baldness or hair loss in the scalp region, and infertility-like condition.

A low testosterone level may lead to weak bones, infertility, and low libido. Thus, a high and low level of this male-dominating hormone can greatly affect a woman's reproductive health.

What does "total testosterone" mean?

Testosterone hormone is typically found in bound form, with only 2% of its total quantity in free form. Therefore, the testosterone total test detects both bound and free testosterone existing in the bloodstream.

Why is a total testosterone test essential?

Measuring the level of total testosterone is a way to detect unusual functioning of this hormone in males and females alike. In males, it also helps to know the real cause of infertility and erectile dysfunction. While in females, it can help detect the appearance of symptoms related to high levels, including PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) or PCOD, early or delayed puberty, and other abnormal conditions.

A total testosterone test is also used to diagnose health conditions in children (both genders). The test is also important for patients on hormonal replacement therapy, including transgenders.

What is the purpose of the total testosterone test?

The total testosterone test in Panchkula is used to detect the value of bound and free testosterone levels in the blood. Any fluctuation in its normal values may cause abnormal health issues and changes in physical appearance. 

Total testosterone test assessment aids in analyzing the response of patients to hormonal therapy, determining the cause of abnormalities arising due to its imbalance, and determining whether the testosterone level in the blood is high or low.

In males, testosterone is produced in the adrenal gland and testicles, while in females, it is mainly produced in the ovaries and other parts. The free form of testosterone is also known as the active form, which exists in the blood in 2% quantity. The rest of the 98% is a bounded form of testosterone hormone or inactive form.

Thus, a measures this hormone's active and inactive forms. This is the common test and measures both values in (ng/dL) or nanograms per deciliter of blood. 

But free testosterone tests are less often needed and performed rarely. It also measures this hormone in nanograms per deciliter.

When should a total testosterone level be done?

A doctor may recommend this test if a male is experiencing symptoms like low libido, weak bones, infertility, late or early puberty, and erectile dysfunction. Or also when he detects an abnormal health issue related to low levels of testosterone, or the person has HIV or has gone through testicular chemotherapy.

And in females who are suspicious and show high levels of testosterone along with specific symptoms like a change of voice, irregular periods, excess acne, hair fall, etc.

Normal values of the total testosterone test

Normal values in males: Total testosterone levels differ between genders and age groups, with males over 18 having levels ranging from 280 - 1,100 nanograms per litre (ng/dL).

Normal values in females: Females between the ages of 20 to 50 can expect a total testosterone level ranging from 15- 70 nanograms per litre (ng/dL), while females over 50 can expect a level ranging from 5 - 40 ng/dL.

What do total testosterone test results predict?

A lower testosterone level than the normal range shows subfertility, myotonic dystrophy, testicular failure, and other functional disorders as described above. A higher testosterone level in males shows adrenal and testicular tumors and congenital hyperplasia. High levels in women may be linked with PCOS, adrenal gland tumors, and ovarian cancer.

How to perform the total testosterone test?

It is usually a simple test typically done in the early morning. A phlebotomist takes a blood sample from the arm, and it takes only a few minutes during the whole procedure. Before the test, inform your doctor if you are taking any medications, steroids, or have consumed alcohol, as this can affect test results.
