This Total Testosterone Test measures the amount of total testosterone (free testosterone, SHBG-bound, and albumin-bound) in the blood, giving you a combined measure of all three. Testosterone is the hormone responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics including libido, body hair, bone strength, and reproductive capabilities. Low levels of testosterone can lead to infertility, erectile dysfunction, changes in mood/attitude, and decreased muscle tone. In women, unusual levels of testosterone can cause irregular periods, unusual hair growth, menopause issues, and/or fertility concerns. If these symptoms are due to an excess or under abundance of testosterone, our Total Testosterone Test will provide confident results.

How Our Total Testosterone Test Works

Given its integral role in the human body, it’s vital to ensure that your testosterone levels remain normal. With our testosterone test, Priority Lab Testing can help you confirm. You can book your test online and visit our 4000+ facilities countrywide. 

You can come at your convenience as there’s no need to book an appointment. One of our certified staff will welcome you and take your blood sample using the skin prick technique. 

Aside from being painless, the process is fast, and you’ll be in and out of our facility in 30 mins max. This means you don’t have to reorganize your day for the test.

We’ll then test your sample at a CLIA-certified lab, and you’ll receive your results in 1 to 3 days. 

Symptoms of Abnormal Levels of Testosterone

Testosterone plays an active role in men’s health, especially in developing male characteristics. If your levels are too high or too low, it could lead to various issues such as: 

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low sperm count
  • Infertility
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Fatigue
  • Increased body fat 
  • Mood swings 
  • Bone loss 

While it plays more of a subdued role in women, it can result in:

  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Infertility 
  • Loss of bone density 

How to Interpret Your Results

We prioritize your convenience here at Priority Lab Testing, and you no longer need to collect tests in person. We know your time is valuable, so we’ll email you a secure link to access it instead.

We want everyone to understand the results easily, so we present them plainly and simply without medical jargon. In the results, you’ll find a chart that displays different testosterone levels. Your specific level will be marked by a flag next to it. 

Total Testosterone Test Vs. Testosterone Maintenance/Therapy Test

Good health is integral to your quality of life, but it’s often not given adequate attention until it’s too late. At Priority Lab Testing, we are committed to helping you gain a better understanding and control of your health. 

There’s also the Testosterone Maintenance/Therapy test among the numerous tests we offer. It’s similar to the Total Testosterone Test in that it measures the amount of testosterone in your blood. However, this test is geared toward those undergoing testosterone therapy or treatment. 

The Testosterone Maintenance/Therapy test is important as it helps ensure you’re receiving the right hormone dosage. This is vital as too little or too much testosterone can have serious health consequences. 

To help determine your testosterone levels, the Total Testosterone Test measures:

  • Free testosterone- This is the amount of testosterone not bound to proteins in your blood 
  • Albumin-bound testosterone- Measures the amount of testosterone bound to albumin, a protein found in your blood 
  • Globulin-bound testosterone- Measures the amount of testosterone bound to globulin, another protein found in your blood 

The test results are then used to calculate the free androgen index, a ratio of testosterone to SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin). This ratio provides valuable information about how much of the hormone is available to your cells.


  • Testosterone is a hormone that’s produced in the testicles. One of its main roles is the development of male characteristics such as facial hair and a deep voice. It also plays a role in bone density, muscle mass, and fertility for men. But in women, it’s produced in the ovaries and helps with bone density and the menstrual cycle regulation. 

  • The normal testosterone range for men is 270-1070 ng/dL, and for women, it’s 15-70 ng/dL. However, this can vary depending on your age. 

  • Low testosterone, or hypogonadism, is a condition in which the body doesn’t produce enough of the hormone. This can lead to various issues, such as loss of muscle mass, fatigue, and increased body fat. In men, it can also cause erectile dysfunction and low sperm count. In women, it can cause irregular menstrual cycles.
