The Male Hormone Assessment measures the body’s levels of key hormones such as testosterone and androgen. These hormones are vital to male functioning and wellbeing and when deficient, can lead to a range of adverse health conditions.
The ageing male can experience up to a 10% decline in testosterone every decade, from age 30 onwards. This decrease of both testosterone and androgen is called androgen deficiency of the ageing male (ADAM) and can contribute to an increase in fat mass and reduction in bone mineral density, muscle mass and strength. Common signs of ADAM also include erectile dysfunction and psychological indicators such as altered cognition, memory, mood and energy.
Testing male hormone levels is therefore important in identifying deficiencies or abnormalities while highlighting a need for hormone treatment. The Male Hormone Profile is a baseline measurement for uncovering and resolving common health issues, and is conducted with a simple and non-invasive saliva test.
HOW IT WORKS
Step 1: Receive Pathology Forms
You will receive a package which will include all instructions, pathology form, details of sample collection locations.
Step 2: Pathology assessment
Once your samples are received by the lab they will be assessed. The turn around time for results is 7 – 10 business days but please be aware laboratory times may vary and you may experience a delay in results.
Step 3: Medical Team review results
Once your confidential results have been sent to the medical team for review, they will call you to discuss your results and appropriate treatment options moving forward.
Step 4: Results sent to the patient
Finally, a copy of your results will be sent through to you for your reference.
