Service Description

What’s included? -DHEA-Sulphate Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone which is found in all bodies and plays important role in muscular and metabolic health. It starts to decline as you age and also then leads to a decline in testosterone and oestrogen levels, which are important for the body to create lean muscle. Understanding your DHEA level means you can understand whether this is a cause of reduced muscle mass or weakness. -Follicular Stimulating Hormone FSH can be found in males and females, and is important for female reproduction and fertility, and male sperm count and sex drive. It can be a good way to help measure your general health and fitness. Low FSH levels can also indicate energy deficiency, often seen in people who exercise excessively. Understanding your FSH levels mean you can determine whether you are generally fit and healthy, as well as whether your low energy levels may be due to hormonal imbalance, or from too much exercise and not enough calorific intake, or rest. -Free Androgen Index Used to determine abnormal androgen status in humans. A high value means you have too much active testosterone in your blood, whilst a low value means you have low levels of testosterone, which affects your muscle mass, fat mass, energy levels and bone strength. -Testosterone Testosterone is made in the testes of men and, in smaller amounts, in the ovaries of women. It’s an important hormone which helps with the distribution of fat and muscle around the body, as well as energy levels and the ability to make and maintain lean muscle mass. Good levels of testosterone can help you develop larger, stronger muscles and stronger bone mass. Understanding your testosterone levels will help determine whether this can be affecting your muscle growth, strength, endurance and outside the gym, your mood, fertility, libido and more. - Luteinising Hormone Created in the pituitary gland, luteinising hormone impacts male and female reproduction abilities. -Progesterone Has an important role in the menstrual cycle and maintaining the early stages of pregnancy in females. Lack of progesterone in the bloodstream can occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. In males, progesterone is produced by the body to create testosterone. We also test for: -Prolactin -SHBG -Albumin
