What is included in this test

Hormone Profile

TSH, produced by the pituitary gland, regulates thyroid hormones, with low levels potentially causing erectile dysfunction. Testosterone, both total and free forms, is vital for male sexual function, with deficiencies leading to erectile issues; while high SHBG can reduce active testosterone availability. The free androgen index offers insights into free testosterone levels and potential prostate cancer risk.

Prostate Marker

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by cells in the prostate gland. A PSA test is a blood test that measures the levels of PSA in the blood, which may indicate prostate cancer or other conditions, such as an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia).


Diabetes Biomarkers

HbA1c (Hemoglobin A1c) and Glucose are fundamental indicators for monitoring blood sugar regulation. These markers provide insights into an individual's long-term and short-term glucose levels aiding in the diagnosis and management of diabetes.
