Testosterone blood panel testing is quick easy and the results will help you determine where your levels are.
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone made by your body and is responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of other sexual characteristics. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes, the reproductive glands that also produce sperm. The amount of testosterone produced by the testes is regulated by the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland.
Some effects of testosterone may include:
•Growth and maturation of prostate, and other male sex organs
•Development of male hair distribution such as facial hair
•Changes in body muscle mass and strength and fat distribution
•Sex drive and sexual function
•Mood and energy level
Normal Levels of Testosterone
In healthy men, testosterone levels (also known as T levels) between 300 ng/dL and 1000 ng/dL are considered normal. The brain and the testes work together to keep testosterone in this range. When levels of testosterone are below normal, the brain signals the testes to make more. When there is enough testosterone, the brain signals the testes to make less.
What is Low Testosterone?
Typically, a man’s testosterone level is considered low if it’s below a level of around 300 ng/dL. Low Testosterone can be caused by a signaling problem that occurs between the brain and the testes that causes the production of testosterone to drop below normal. Low Testosterone can also occur when your body can't make normal levels of testosterone.
It is estimated that Low Testosterone affects more than 15 million men in the U.S. Common symptoms include reduced sex drive, decreased energy, loss of body hair or reduced shaving, and depressed mood. Testing Kit price includes preparing and go over results 1 Hour.
