Home Testosterone Saliva Test Kit
$69 - Free Shipping!

Home testosterone kits measure the amount of free testosterone or bioavailable testosterone in your system, and are ideal for the initial screening of testosterone levels. Your saliva samples can accurately represent circulating levels of free testosterone which can then be correlated to symptoms of excessive or deficient testosterone levels. Collection of sample should be in the morning upon waking up.

What is Testosterone? Testosterone is a hormone that causes male characteristics. Testing testosterone levels is used by men to investigate abnormal sexual development and sexual dysfunction. Testosterone measurements are also used to assess hypogonadism, erectile dysfunction, infertility, gynecomastia (enlarged breast), osteoporosis and to assess hormone replacement therapy.

Low testosterone levels have been associated with:

  • moodiness
  • decreased physical energy and stamina
  • loss of muscle mass and tone
  • weight gain
  • increase in body fat
  • decreased libido and sex drive

High testosterone levels have been associated with complications and side effects, for example:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • liver disease
  • aggression
  • skin infections
  • high red blood cell count (polycythemia)
  • alteration in sexual organs
  • infertility

What are normal testosterone levels? A normal male testosterone level peaks at about age 20, and then it slowly declines with age. In general, the normal range of testosterone in males is about 49-185 pg/ml. Testosterone levels are considered to be out of balance when they are either above or below the normal range.

Is saliva hormone testing accurate? Salivary testosterone is believed to represent tissue hormone levels, which are unaffected by variations in circulating binding proteins. For this reason, saliva testing provides a convenient method to perform the initial screening to determine if the levels of testosterone are appropriate and normal. In contrast to the collection of blood, which is invasive, collection of saliva is relatively straightforward, accurate, and requires minimal training.
