Your lifestyle and wellbeing can be affected by your hormones. This test runs an in-depth analysis on the main hormones that can cause major health problems if they are unbalanced.
Testosterone is a hormone mainly produced by male testicles. It's also responsible for the development of male physical characteristics and the production of sperm. Most of testosterone is inactive and bound to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). The rest is either bound to another protein, albumin, or circulates freely in the body. Measuring free testosterone estimates the amount of testosterone that is readily available for your body to use.

- Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
TSH is a hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland, located at the base of your brain. Its primary function is to regulate the production of thyroid hormones which regulate your metabolism, heart, muscles, brain development, and bone maintenance.
- Free triiodothyronine (FT3)
Triiodothyronine (T3) is a thyroid hormone that is produced by the thyroid gland which helps maintain muscle control, brain function and development, heart, and digestive functions. It also plays an important role in the body’s metabolic rate as well as the maintenance of bone health. The T3 that doesn't bind to protein is called free T3 and circulates freely in your blood. Knowing your T3 levels will inform you of your overall thyroid health.
- Free thyroxine (FT4) & total thyroxine (TF4)
Thyroxine (T4) is the main hormone produced by the thyroid gland. This hormone plays a role in different body functions, including growth and metabolism. Some of your T4 exists as FT4, which means that it is not bonded to protein in your blood, whilst T4 attaches to proteins. Knowing your T4 levels will help you understand your thyroid levels.
