The men’s health test evaluates 9 key health areas in your body:
Men’s key hormonal health
Testosterone is the most important male sex hormone that plays many roles in the body, that includes regulating your sex drive & energy levels, bone and muscle mass, and production of red blood cells. The test measures total testosterone, which evaluates the levels of both protein-bound and unbound testosterone in your blood. DHEA-S is another hormone that plays a role in the production of the male sex hormone testosterone in males and the female sex hormone estrogen in females. It is important that your testosterone levels are at a healthy level so that you can enjoy a healthy and happy life.
Biomarkers Measured: Total Testosterone, DHEA-S
Your kidney plays a vital role by filtering out waste, toxins, and excess water from your blood into urine that is removed from the body. The biomarkers in this test collectively allow you and your physician to evaluate if you have any concerns regarding kidney function.
Biomarkers Measured: Creatine, Blood Urea Nitrogen, Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)
Your liver plays many roles, including cleaning your blood, breaking down food, making proteins, and storing energy. The biomarkers in this test are used to check the levels of liver enzymes and proteins that will help you and your physician assess the health of your liver.
Biomarkers Measured: Albumin, Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST), Bilirubin
Glucose is the main source of energy for your body. Cortisol is the primary stress hormone that plays several functions in your body and is also involved in glucose metabolism. In addition, this test evaluates your hemoglobin A1C levels, which indicate the levels of hemoglobin bound to glucose attached to red blood cells, which allow you to measure the average glucose level for the last three months.
Biomarkers Measured: Glucose, Cortisol, HbA1c
Your heart is the engine in your body that beats every moment to deliver oxygenated blood throughout your body, which is important for proper function. The biomarkers in this test will help you navigate your lifestyle to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Biomarkers Measured: HDL, LDL, Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides
The four major electrolytes of the body play a wide range of functions in the body. These functions range from regulating your blood pressure, playing a role in muscle and nerve function, to maintaining physiological pH balance.
Analytes Measure: Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Bicarbonate
Blood Content Analysis
