Understanding Testosterone Total in Pune


What is Testosterone Total in Pune?

The Testosterone Total test measures the level of testosterone (both free and bound) in the blood and is available at an affordable price in Pune with Tata 1mg labs. Testosterone is a male sex hormone but can also be found in women in small amounts. This hormone aids in the development of secondary sexual characteristics like enlargement of the genitals, body hair growth, development of the muscles, and deepening of the voice.

The Testosterone Total test helps detect erectile dysfunction, infertility, or altered puberty in males. In females, this test helps determine the cause of masculine physical features, excessive body hair, absence of menstruation, or infertility.

What does Testosterone Total measure?

The Testosterone Total test measures the level of testosterone hormone in the blood. Testosterone is a steroid hormone primarily produced in the testes in men, although it is also present in smaller quantities in the adrenal glands. In women, it is made in small amounts by the ovaries. It is predominantly associated with male physiology and significantly influences physiological functions in both men and women. 

The pituitary gland produces luteinizing hormone (LH), which regulates testosterone production. As testosterone levels rise, LH production decreases, slowing down testosterone production. Conversely, when testosterone levels fall, LH production increases, stimulating testosterone production.

Most of the testosterone circulating in the blood gets attached to two proteins, albumin and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), and some of it remains unattached, called free testosterone. Free testosterone and albumin-bound testosterone are also known as bioavailable testosterone, as they are readily available for the body to use for proper functioning.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Testosterone Total in Pune


Frequently Asked Questions about Testosterone Total in Pune

Q. Why do I need the Testosterone Total test?

The Testosterone Total test is used to measure the total amount of testosterone hormone in the blood. It is used to detect conditions such as infertility, erectile dysfunction, and early or delayed puberty in males and menstrual irregularities or hormonal issues, like increased facial hair, in females.

Q. Why do women need the Testosterone Total test?

Women also produce testosterone, but in small amounts. It is needed to maintain hormonal balance and normal bodily functions. If a woman’s body is making too much testosterone, she may have abnormal facial or body hair growth, abnormal or no menstrual periods, or may even be infertile. The Testosterone Total test and other tests can help the doctor understand the symptoms and treat the condition effectively.

Q. How is the Testosterone Free test different from the Testosterone Total test?

Testosterone is present in the blood in two forms: free and bound (to proteins albumin and sex hormone-binding globulin).
