This home test checks your levels of the hormone Testosterone. Testosterone is the main sex hormone in males. The high levels of Testosterone that men have compared to women are responsible for the development of virtually all the physical differences between the sexes. In adult males it controls sex drive, maintains muscle mass and helps make sperm.
What can cause low testosterone?
Conditions which directly affect the testes, including direct injury, infection or radiation can cause testosterone levels to drop significantly.
Genetic conditions such as Klinefelter syndrome where a male has an extra X chromosome can also affect levels.
Tumours, auto-immune conditions and some medications can also affect glands that produce this hormone.
