How can you check your testosterone levels?
You can check your testosterone levels with a quick and easy blood test.
One way you can get tested is to order a testosterone test kit from Alpha XR Online Doctor. Any order you make with us is sent in discreet packaging to your preferred address. You take your sample at home and then post it to our lab. Results get sent to your account, along with medical advice from one of our doctors.
You can also get tested through your GP. To get tested, make a face-to-face appointment with your usual GP. If your GP agrees that the test is the right option for you, they’ll arrange for you to have a blood sample taken for testing.
It is always recommended that you follow the instructions before taking the test, as many things can affect the result such as the time of day you take the test.
Current medical guidance advises that for accurate results, you should repeat the test after at least 4 weeks. Ideally, this should be done when you're not feeling ill, as that could affect the results.
Changes in the hormone levels mean that testosterone levels are highest in the early morning, so you should have your testosterone levels measured between 7am and 11am. The test should be done after fasting as glucose (blood sugars) can lower testosterone levels.
