    What does the men’s health blood test show?

    On this page

    Testosterone (free or unbound) — 4 biomarkers

    Testosterone plays a role in the production of red blood cells - which are linked with energy - sex drive, mood and the distribution of muscle mass. 

    Levels naturally drop as you age, and can be affected by your weight, stress and genetics. Low testosterone may be linked with low mood, tiredness, low sex drive and weight gain.  

    This home testosterone blood test tells you your level of free testosterone (also known as unbound), which is available for your body to use. This is different to total testosterone tests which look at the amount of testosterone present in the body. 

    The at-home testosterone test calculates free testosterone based on your:

    • Testosterone
    • Free testosterone
    • Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG)
    • Free Androgen Index

    Cholesterol (lipid profile) — 7 biomarkers

    Cholesterol is an essential fat that your body produces. It helps make vitamin D and hormones. Your body needs cholesterol to stay healthy, but too much can increase your risk of heart disease.

    High cholesterol has no symptoms, so regular testing is the only way to keep track of your levels.

    The cholesterol home test, also called a lipid profile test, measures the different types of fats in your blood. 

    The cholesterol home test checks 7 biomarkers:

    • LDL
    • Non HDL cholesterol
    • HDL
    • Total cholesterol
    • Triglycerides
    • Total cholesterol: HDL ratio
    • Triglycerides: HDL ratio

    Diabetes risk (HbA1c) — 1 biomarker

    An HbA1c test measures your average blood sugar (glucose) levels over the past 3 months. This can help you understand your risk of developing type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. 

    When the amount of sugar in your blood rises, any that your body can’t use attaches to red blood cells to form glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c). 

    Red blood cells live for around 3 months, which is why a HbA1c test measures the average blood sugar over the past few months.

    The at-home HbA1c test will show you whether you have healthy levels of HbA1c.

    Liver function — 7 biomarkers

    The liver test looks at the overall health of your liver. The liver plays an important role in hundreds of your body’s functions, from detoxifying blood to fighting infections. 

    Alcohol, weight, diet and some medications can impact liver health.

    An at-home liver test checks how well your liver is working.

    The liver test includes 7 biomarkers:

    • Total protein
    • Albumin
    • Globulin
    • Alanine aminotransferease
    • Alkaline phosphatase
    • Gamma-glutamyl transferase
    • Bilirubin
