Male Hormone Blood Test in London

Hormone Level Test for Men

Like women, men don’t usually experience dramatic and sudden shift in hormone levels. But gradual declination in the level of certain hormones will cause problems in the long run. As a result, men may experience issues with overall health, libido and fertility. If you are encountering something unusual then we can help you! London bridges the gap between those who are in need and the best private healthcare clinics in London.

Although not required on a regular basis yet, hormone checks for men are very important and aid in diagnosis of certain conditions. The GP will recommend measures to maintain and balance hormones in the long run while also taking actions to manage the symptoms too.

Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms

Men usually experience hormonal imbalance and symptoms in their late 40s and early 50s but it can happen at any time. Common symptoms are:

  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of sex drive (libido)
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of energy and enthusiasm and fatigue
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Fat redistribution like man boobs or large belly (gynaecomastia)
  • Hot flush
  • Increased sweating
  • Irritability
  • Short-term memory and poor concentration
  • Other physical and emotional symptoms

Hormone fluctuations may happen because of anxiety, stress and poor lifestyle. As a result, it interferes with happiness and everyday life.

What is involved in the test?

A simple blood test is carried out by the GP for male hormone screening and it measures the level of different substances in the body such as glucose, Prolactin, DHEA Sulphate, Free Androgen Index, SHBG, Testosterone, FSH and LH.

What should you expect from the test?

No preparation is required for the test and your doctor will share the necessary information with you at your consultation. A phlebotomist in London will collect a blood sample by inserting a needle into the arm vein near your elbow. You may feel slight discomfort along with a scratching or pricking sensation. After receiving the result, you need to arrange a follow-up appointment with the doctor in London for necessary explanations and suggestions on how to maintain the correct hormonal balance.
