-10%

The Testosterone Free and Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) Test is a comprehensive hormonal assay performed at DNA Labs UAE, designed to evaluate an individual’s testosterone levels that are not bound to proteins, alongside measuring the concentration of SHBG in the blood. SHBG is a protein that binds to sex hormones, including testosterone, thereby influencing their bioavailability and activity in the body. This test is crucial for diagnosing and managing conditions related to hormonal imbalances, such as hypogonadism, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and issues related to fertility, libido, and menstrual irregularities. The cost of the test is 940 AED, reflecting the advanced technology and expertise required to accurately measure these parameters. Conducted in a state-of-the-art facility, DNA Labs UAE ensures precise results, providing essential insights into an individual’s hormonal health.

Test Details:

Testosterone is a hormone that plays a crucial role in the development and maintenance of male reproductive tissues and secondary sexual characteristics. It is also found in smaller amounts in females and is important for their reproductive health as well. When testosterone is produced in the body, it can either remain free and available for use by cells or become bound to a protein called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG acts as a carrier protein for testosterone, helping to transport it through the bloodstream. However, when testosterone is bound to SHBG, it is inactive and cannot interact with cells.

The measurement of free testosterone and SHBG levels in the blood can provide important information about an individual’s hormone status. Free testosterone is the fraction of testosterone that is not bound to SHBG and is available for use by cells. It is often considered the biologically active form of testosterone. SHBG levels can also be measured to assess the amount of testosterone that is bound and unavailable for use. Elevated levels of SHBG can result in lower levels of free testosterone, which may lead to symptoms of testosterone deficiency.

Testing for testosterone, free testosterone, and SHBG levels can be done through a blood test. This information can be useful in diagnosing and monitoring conditions related to testosterone imbalance, such as hypogonadism, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and certain types of hormonal imbalances. It can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of testosterone replacement therapy or other hormone treatments.
