Should get testosterone

Get a testosterone test before deterioration, analyze hormone levels and balance the body.

Hormones are important factors that affect both physical health and mental health. They regulate the function of various systems within the body, influencing our daily activities and overall health significantly.

What is Testosterone or the “male hormone”?

Testosterone is a very important hormone in men. It is responsible for stimulating various systems throughout the body that are unique to men, such as body hair, muscle mass, and bone. Additionally, it plays a role in sexual desire and sperm creation. The release of testosterone will be controlled by our brain, which will be produced from the testicles.

Why is the testosterone test important?

The testosterone test is important because it provides valuable insight into your hormonal balance, which is fundamental for overall health and well-being.

Factors contributing to low testosterone levels in males.

If your testosterone test levels are normal and balanced, this is a good sign, because it will help the body to be balanced and strong. However, if the testosterone amount is decreased, it can lead to reduced bodily functions and potential malfunctioning of certain body parts. Lower testosterone can cause various symptoms such as decreased sexual desire, inadequate erections, and decreased sperm amount. The low testosterone can be caused by these factors:

  • Side effects from treatments for certain diseases such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and castration
  • The body may produce less testosterone due to certain diseases such as AIDS, liver disease, kidney disease, obesity, diabetes, and pituitary gland tumors
  • Infections in the testicles area
  • Regular smoking and alcohol consumption
  • Increasing age
  • Stress from various conditions

Physician-recommended methods to increase testosterone hormone levels.

  • Consistently engaging in weight training can help improve fitness and increase testosterone production in the body.
  • Reduce stress because it can be a significant factor in increasing cortisol levels, which can decrease testosterone levels. This has implications for mental well-being and can also affect sexual function.
  • Ensure adequate rest by aiming for 6-8 hours of sleep per night to allow the body to rest and rejuvenate fully, which directly benefits male hormone production.
  • Maintain a balanced diet comprising all five food groups, particularly vitamins and minerals essential for the body. Such foods also support natural testosterone production.
  • Quit smoking and reduce alcohol consumption as nicotine in cigarettes and alcohol are significant contributors to decreased testosterone levels, leading to decreased sexual performance and overall vigor.”

Who should get a testosterone test?

  • Individuals experiencing high levels of stress, inadequate rest, and insufficient sleep.
  • Those who frequently consume fried, fatty, or sweet foods.
  • People who regularly drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.
  • Individuals who consume unbalanced meals, leading to nutritional deficiencies or vitamin deficiencies. 
  • Those who are overweight or obese, particularly with excess abdominal fat.
  • People who lack appropriate levels of physical exercise.

In addition to the aforementioned groups, the general public can also undergo testosterone testing for male hormone levels. This can help individuals better understand their own bodies and plan for appropriate health management.

Symptoms related to incorrect testosterone levels

  • Decreased energy levels, fatigue, lack of vigor, and lethargy
  • Mood swings
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Insomnia or difficulty falling asleep
  • Decreased libido, difficulty achieving or maintaining erections, or reduced sexual stamina
  • Smaller testicles, decreased semen volume
  • Reduced metabolism, easy weight gain, especially around the abdomen
  • Noticeable increase in blood lipid levels
  • Decreased muscle and bone mass, increased body fat accumulation
  • Changes in skin texture, dryness, and sagging
  • Osteoporosis

If you experience these symptoms, it’s advisable to undergo testosterone testing.

The benefits of hormone testing for males:

Hormones play a crucial role in bodily functions. Hormone testing helps individuals better understand their own bodies and plan appropriate self-care, such as

  • Helps determine the levels of important hormones in the body, including sex hormones, thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones, and growth hormones.
  • If an imbalance is detected, proper care and targeted restoration can be provided.
  • Screens for fatigue symptoms caused by adrenal gland disorders.
  • Screens for hypothyroidism, one of the causes of weight gain.
  • Screens for hyperthyroidism, which can cause insomnia, fatigue, abnormal weight loss, even with adequate food intake.
  • Screens for infertility issues through male hormone level testing. Additionally, it can help identify the causes of abnormal hair loss, oily skin, or hormonal acne.
  • Provides guidance on appropriate lifestyle changes and may receive hormone replacement therapy tailored to individual needs under close medical supervision.

Which male hormones should be tested?

The types of hormones commonly found in male hormone testing include:


  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH): Stimulates Leydig cells in the testes to produce androgens, the main group of male sex hormones.
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH): Controls sperm production and stimulates LH to convert most androgens into testosterone.
  • Estradiol (E2): Produced by the testes and adrenal glands, low levels may indicate hypogonadism or disorders of the testes or adrenal glands, while high levels may indicate testicular or adrenal tumors, causing an imbalance of sex hormones between males and females, or obesity-related diseases.
  • Testosterone: The primary male sex hormone related to reproduction.
  • Sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG): Associated with male hormone imbalances; excessive levels can bind more free testosterone, reducing its quantity and effectiveness.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): Stimulates the thyroid gland to produce T3 (Triiodothyronine) and T4 (Thyroxine) hormones. Free T3 and Free T4, which are not bound to proteins, can indicate thyroid-related diseases.

  • Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulphate (DHEAs): A precursor hormone involved in the production of testosterone, estrogen, and other androgenic hormones. Abnormal levels increase the risk of male hormone deficiency, heart disease, or Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1): Plays a crucial role in stimulating body growth in children and promoting cell and tissue growth in adults, and can be used to assess the actual age of the body.
  • Insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3): Used to screen for growth hormone deficiency or conditions with abnormally high growth hormone levels.
  • Cortisol: A steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, involved in the body’s response to stress and various physiological processes such as fighting inflammation, stimulating the liver to produce sugar for the bloodstream, or regulating fluid balance.
  • Insulin: Helps transport sugar into cells for energy and controls blood sugar levels.
