About this test
About this test
Following puberty, male hormones carry out a variety of functions including sperm production, maintaining a healthy sex drive, maintaining muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, and healthy bone density.
Healthy sperm counts have dropped by 50% in the last 40 years globally. Hormonal imbalances and reduced testosterone are becoming commonplace as leading concerns in modern male health.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalances may include:
Low energy or fatigue
Low sex drive or libido
Anxiety, depression or brain fog
Enlarged breast tissue
Loss of bone density
Hypopituitarism (Reduction of overall hormone production from the pituitary gland.)
When to test
You should consider taking this test if:
You are interested in learning more about your hormones
You suffer from chronic stress
You constantly feel run down
You are body-building competitively
You take or have taken anabolic steroids*
You are obese
You have a family history of low testosterone
You suffer from thyroid issues
You should collect your samples Monday-Friday, in the morning while fasting, and ensure your return is scheduled for the same day. Fasting means that you don’t eat or drink anything besides water overnight for 8 hours before collecting your sample. Always follow the advice of your healthcare provider with regards to fasting, particularly if you have any medical conditions.
*The accuracy of your test results may be affected if you have used anabolic steroids or other steroid or hormone-containing medication within the last 3-6 months, or if you have used steroid creams within the last week.
Biotin (B7) supplements may also impact your test results. Wait at least 8 hours after your last dose before collecting your sample.
This test is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
Testosterone is a steroid hormone that plays a key role in development of secondary sex characteristics, fertility, muscle strength, and bone health.

This test kit was easy to use with complete and concise directions. Getting results within a week was a bonus. Would recommend to anyone who has questions about testosterone.
I took their male hormone test complete. I ... appreciated the discussion of my results with a nurse afterwards, which was included ... This was a more thorough service than others I have used.
Very easy flowing service. Results came in fast for my testosterone blood results. Now I can rest easy knowing I'm good in that area.😀👍
Last year I was diagnosed with iron overload - a condition that can ... interfere with hormone production ... I took things into my own hands and ordered the male hormone kit ... I highly recommend
I needed to monitor hormone levels once a month for 3-4 months and decided to try it ... the instructions were super clear. The activation process was easy and I received the results after 2 days.
The male hormone kit is amazing!
I found it difficult getting specialty lab work done through my primary care physician, such as getting my male hormone profile checked ... I decided to try out LetsGetChecked ... Very pleased
Easy kit to use. quick service
Quick, clear, and reliable. Now I can monitor my hormone levels, instead of having to justify it through a doctor
That one of their nurses called me to talk me through and answer all of my questions about one of my hormone results that came back a little high ... was also a huge bonus.
Everything was taken care of. From a step by step explanation of how best to do the test, to a phonecall from a qualified nurse explaining my results & what I should do next.
Had the male hormone test.... easy to do and 10 days later I received a call with my results. Well impressed
Excellent service. .. Comprehensive results and an easy format to read. Will be using again in a few months after I get sleep pattern correct, and hopefully get some higher values. Highly recommended
I took this test as I have experienced almost all the symptoms of low Testosterone. And ... it was clear I am in the lower end of Normal which is exactly what I suspected.
Great way to get the valuable info on the testosterone levels. Results are quick and process is detailed what to do get it done
This was a really easy test with quick results. I even received a call from a nurse concerned about my results ... I will definitely use again.
The Testosterone test was easy to follow and complete. Results were returned within 3 days.
Test instructions were clear and very easy to follow. Return process was very simple. Results came within two days of the lab receiving my test. More than satisfied.
This was my first time using a test like this and I am very happy with the experience. The directions are explained clearly and the test itself (testosterone check) was fast and easy.
