Who should take the test?

As a male, you require well-balanced testosterone levels to perform at your best, but truly knowing your health requires understanding far more than testosterone. Men of every age may be interested in understanding their testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, cortisol, and DHEA levels as these, when measured together, offer greater insight into their overall health.

The test analyzes the morning values of the following hormones:

  • Testosterone
  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol

Our Hormone Test for Men helps you to get a comprehensive picture of your hormone status. This allows you to understand the complex relationships between the individual hormones and how they affect your well-being.

Test measures
For the Hormone Test for Men we analyse:
  • Estradiol
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol
Estradiol and Progesterone

Estradiol, a type of estrogen hormone, exists in men at lower levels and plays several roles in the body. It contributes to testicular function, bone health, cardiovascular health, mood regulation, and may influence sexual function. Its effects are secondary to testosterone, the primary male sex hormone, and imbalances can lead to conditions like gynecomastia.

Progesterone is present in men at lower levels compared to women. It is primarily produced in the testes and plays a minor role in sperm production (spermatogenesis) and possibly mood and behavior.

DHEA and Cortisol

Cortisol and DHEA originate in the adrenal glands. Cortisol, alongside adrenaline, is a key stress hormone facilitating the body’s response to various types of stress. It mobilizes energy reserves to prepare the body for action, whether in strenuous physical activities, competitive sports, or during times of physical, mental, or emotional stress.

Both cortisol and DHEA also play crucial roles in various metabolic processes. Cortisol, with its anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties, contributes to immune responses and overall bodily health.

DHEA serves as a precursor to both female and male sex hormones. As individuals age, DHEA production declines, beginning around the age of 30, and its deficiency can potentially lead to the development of various health conditions.

It is responsible for:

  • Burning of body fat
  • Prevention of osteoporosis
  • Minimizing cancer and heart diseases
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Slowing down the aging process
  • Positively influencing memory performance

However, both too low and too high levels can cause unpleasant symptoms.

Chronic stress is widely recognized as detrimental to health, with stress being the primary trigger for elevated cortisol levels. Excessive cortisol can lead to symptoms such as weakened immune function, depression, physical fatigue, metabolic imbalances, diabetes, obesity, and sleep disturbances, among others. Elevated cortisol levels can indeed result in uncomfortable symptoms.

On the other hand, excessively low cortisol levels can also disrupt overall well-being, as cortisol plays a vital role not only in providing energy reserves but also in maintaining cardiovascular health, gastrointestinal health, supporting the immune system, and facilitating brain functions. Similarly, DHEA is essential, and reduced DHEA levels are associated with an increased risk of conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, osteoporosis, depression, heart disease, and obesity. Conversely, high DHEA levels in women can lead to deeper voice and increased body hair growth.

Testosterone

Testosterone is a sex hormone that is mainly associated with men – after all, it is responsible for the characteristics that distinguish the appearance of men from women, such as beard growth. It also ensures the development of the male sex organ and is responsible for sexual potency and fertility. In addition, it strengthens the heart, brain and bones, supports muscle growth and fat decomposition, counteracts diabetes and high blood pressure, and helps to lower cholesterol levels.

The body can only profit from all of these positive properties by having a healthy testosterone level; a deficiency can cause various complaints and an excess can, amongst other things, lead to excessive aggressiveness, acne, oily skin and unwanted body hair (face and body) in women.

Some of the symptoms connected with a testosterone deficiency:

  • Decreased libido, potency problems (♂), orgasm difficulties (♀)
  • Decrease in muscles / few distinctive muscles
  • Fat deposits in the stomach and breast areas
  • Cellulite, varicose veins
  • Slack arms and face, wrinkle development, dry skin
  • Decreased hair growth (e.g. beard (♂))
  • Low stamina, consistent tiredness
  • Low assertiveness, uncertainty
  • Decreased stress resistance, nervousness
  • Anxiety, depressive moods

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

Why does the male hormone test include female hormones as well?

Although estradiol and progesterone are so-called female sex hormones, they are also essential for men. If the estrogen level is too high in comparison to the progesterone level, a so called estrogen dominance occurs. It is therefore important for men to get an overview of the entire hormone system.

Why should men consider getting their hormones tested?

Hormonal imbalances can lead to various health issues, including muscle weakness, weight gain, hair loss, and a lack of libido. Monitoring these hormone levels can provide valuable insights into overall health.

What role do these hormones play in men's health?

Testosterone is essential for male performance and overall well-being, but understanding the balance of all five hormones offers a more comprehensive view of health.

How can this test benefit men's health?

The Hormone Test for Men provides a comprehensive overview of hormone status, helping individuals understand the intricate relationships between these hormones and their impact on overall well-being.

How do men get an estrogen dominance?

On one hand, estrogen dominance can of course have organic causes. On the other hand, it can also be caused by external factors, e.g. by intake of estradiol through food or through beer. So-called xenoestrogens, for example in plastics, can also lead to male estrogen dominance.
