Understanding Testosterone Free in Mumbai


What is Testosterone Free in Mumbai?

The Testosterone Free test checks the blood levels of free testosterone, a male sex hormone crucial for developing and maintaining male reproductive tissue, bone, and muscle strength. It is available at an affordable price in Mumbai with Tata 1mg Labs. Testosterone regulates key aspects of puberty in males, such as the growth of hair, muscles, genitalia, and sperm production. Imbalances in testosterone levels can lead to notable health and physical changes. In males, testosterone deficiency (hypogonadism) is associated with increased body fat, reduced sex drive, low energy, bone loss, and infertility. Females may experience symptoms such as menstrual irregularities, acne, obesity, blood sugar issues, and facial hair growth in cases of disrupted testosterone levels. 

The Testosterone Free test is conducted if you experience unexplained bone density loss, infertility, or anemia or if you have a health condition affecting hormone levels, even in the absence of symptoms. Usually, no special preparation is required for the Testosterone Free test. You may eat and drink as per your daily routine.

What does Testosterone Free measure?

The Testosterone Free test measures the level of unattached or free testosterone in the blood. It is called free testosterone or free T because it is not attached to other molecules, especially proteins. The body actively uses free testosterone as signaling molecules that regulate metabolism and other cellular functions.
