  • Information

Testosterone

Testosterone is a steroid hormone found in males and females however, its role is amplified in males. It is responsible for the regulation of libido, bone and muscle mass, mood changes and fertility determination. The testosterone levels are prevalent in men during puberty when it peaks and often decreases over age. An increase in testosterone levels is associated with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and testicular issues in males.

Cortisol (Stress Levels)

Albumin

Albumin is a protein present in blood plasma and plays a binding role similar to SHBG. Albumin is produced by the liver. Albumin will help to detect any issues in the functioning of the kidney or liver. It prevents the fluid in blood vessels from leaking out.

Total Protein

Total Protein measures the amount of two classes of proteins present in the blood: Albumin and Globulin. Albumin is mainly responsible for preventing the fluid in the bloodstream from leaking out. Whereas Globulin is produced by the liver as well as the immune system. The function of globulin is to strengthen the immune system by fighting germs as well as infections.

Platelet Count

Platelet count is a medical test that measures the number of platelets in your blood. Platelets are small cells that help your blood clot. A low platelet count can be a sign of a serious health problem, such as leukaemia or cancer.

Prostate Cancer (PSA)

Total Prostate-specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein in the male bloodstream, produced by the prostate gland which is located beneath the bladder. The amount of PSA in blood, even if it's in minute quantities, is measured in nanograms per millilitre (ng/mL). PSA levels between 4 and 10 ng/mL increase the chances of contracting prostate cancer. However, if levels exceed 10 mg/mL then a biopsy is always recommended to identify cancer. Higher PSA levels are associated with older men and men who have undergone urologic procedures.

Full Blood Count (FBC)

A full blood count (FBC) test is a comprehensive diagnostic tool that provides valuable information about various biomarkers involved in the composition and function of blood. It includes measurements of haemoglobin, which represents the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells, haematocrit, which indicates the volume of red blood cells in the blood, and the red cell count, which determines the number of red blood cells. Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) measures the average size of red blood cells, while mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) evaluate the amount and concentration of haemoglobin in each red blood cell. Red cell distribution width (RDW) assesses the variability in red blood cell size. Additionally, the white cell count enumerates the total number of white blood cells, providing an overview of the body's immune response. The differential count further categorizes white blood cells into neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils, reflecting different aspects of the immune system's functionality. Lastly, platelet count and mean platelet volume (MPV) measure the quantity and average size of platelets involved in blood clotting. The FBC test serves as a fundamental tool for evaluating overall blood health, identifying potential abnormalities, and aiding in the diagnosis and management of various disorders, such as anemia, infections, and bleeding disorders.

Haematocrit

The haematocrit is a measure of the proportion of red blood cells in the blood. It is normally about 40% for men and 38% for women. A high haematocrit indicates a higher than normal level of red blood cells, which can be a sign of dehydration or other conditions. A low haematocrit indicates a lower than normal level of red blood cells, which can be a sign of anaemia or other conditions.

Free Testosterone

Testosterone is either bound to the proteins or exists in its free form. Free testosterone does not need any transport protein to function effectively. If the free testosterone level is low, it indicates an underlying issue leading to decreased sex drive, anemia, etc.

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin is a protein present in the bloodstream. SHBG is produced by the liver. The role of SHBG is to bind testosterone and oestradiol for circulating in the tissues of the body. The concentration of SHBG is directly relative to the level of hormones in males or females. SHBG is checked to detect low levels of testosterone in males and high levels in females.

Globulin

Globulin is a group of proteins produced by the liver and the immune system of the body. Globulin helps to keep the body healthy and fight infections as well as germs. Globulin is also very important to create blood clots and avoid excessive external bleeding caused by injury.

Mean Platelet Volume (MPV)

Mean Platelet Volume or MPV indicates the size of the platelets. The main function of platelets is to support blood clotting and prevent excessive external bleeding caused by an injury. An abnormal range of MPV implies that the person may be suffering from either a bleeding disorder or a disease in the bone marrow. A high or a low MPV can both be harmful.

Oestradiol

The Oestradiol Blood Test can detect the levels of Oestradiol in the blood. Women who have attained the age of 50 and above, and are on their way to menopause have the lowest amounts of Oestradiol in their blood. This can lead to hot flashes, infertility issues, osteoporosis, night sweats and mood swings. A hormonal imbalance can significantly affect the physical and mental well-being of an individual.

Prolactin

Prolactin is a hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland and is also called the lactogenic hormone. Low levels of Prolactin are usually not a cause for concern however, high levels of prolactin in males and females (non-lactating) may indicate infertility, low sexual drive and erectile dysfunction in men.

Haemoglobin

Haemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen around the body. A high haemoglobin level indicates a higher than normal level of oxygen in the blood. This can be a sign of dehydration or other conditions. A low haemoglobin level indicates a lower than normal level of oxygen in the blood. This can be a sign of anaemia or other conditions.

Additional Information

The Welzo Advanced Performance Blood Test is designed for a wide range of individuals, especially those engaged in rigorous physical activities and bodybuilding. Here are some specific groups who would benefit from this test:


Competitive Athletes: Those competing in sports or athletic events where performance-enhancing drug use is monitored or banned can use this test to ensure compliance with regulations and maintain the integrity of their performance.


Bodybuilders: As bodybuilders often engage in intense training regimes and nutritional plans, this test can help monitor their health and detect any potential use or misuse of performance-enhancing substances.


Fitness Enthusiasts: For those who are highly engaged in fitness and are striving for their peak physical performance, this test can help to confirm that improvements are due to training and diet, not the use of prohibited substances.


Healthcare Professionals: Trainers, sports physicians, nutritionists, and other health professionals who work with athletes or bodybuilders may use this test to monitor their clients' health and adherence to clean sport guidelines.


Parents and Coaches: Parents of young athletes and coaches can use this test as a proactive tool to ensure the safety, health, and fair play of their children or athletes.


Remember, this test is not only for detecting the misuse of substances, but it also provides valuable information about the body's response to intense physical activity. Regular testing can help identify potential health issues early, enabling proactive measures to be taken.

Who should take this test?

The Testosterone Replacement Therapy Blood Test is suitable for individuals that are on the testosterone replacement theory. This test will determine the levels of hormones in your body. Clinicians may also recommend this test as a screening process to check whether the testosterone is low. It is then used further in the process to see if the therapy is working and monitor regularly.

Experts Opinion on Blood Work for PED Use

Experts highly recommend blood work for PED use as it provides an accurate, comprehensive view of an individual's physiological status. It not only aids in detecting misuse of substances but can also help optimize training and recovery, promoting clean sport and preventing potential long-term health issues. Regular testing encourages accountability, fair play, and prioritizes the athletes' well-being above all.

Sadly so far after being well over 12days just nothing but disappointment

Have raised a complaint about how unhappy I am and I have been replied to in drips and drabs… as a customer of welzo’s services I feel un-important!!. I was promised a response on Monday with an answer to my issue and yet however I am still waiting… even with another follow up. As someone who’s worked in sales and have been self employed providing services to people I find this extremely disappointing and unacceptable.
