Understanding Testosterone Total & Free in Greater Noida


What is Testosterone Total & Free in Greater Noida?

A Testosterone Total & Free test measures the total and free forms of testosterone, a primary male sex hormone, in the blood. Testosterone is present in both men and women, but the levels are significantly higher in men. It helps detect conditions like infertility, erectile dysfunction, early or delayed puberty in males, and menstrual irregularities or hormonal issues in females. This test may also be used to track hormone levels in individuals receiving testosterone replacement therapy.

What does Testosterone Total & Free measure?

Contains 2 tests

A Testosterone Total & Free test measures the total amount of testosterone in your body, including the testosterone that is bound to proteins: albumin and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) and the testosterone that is free and not bound to proteins.

Testosterone Total

A 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.

Testosterone Free

A 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.
