Oestradiol is the most important of the three oestrogens produced by the human body. It plays a significant role in helping the female reproductive system to mature and to regulate its functioning. It is also present in males but in much lesser amounts. The levels of oestradiol gradually reduce when approaching menopause and it is responsible for the many symptoms encountered during the phase. It is linked with bone cell growth and bone development, which leads to people having lower levels of oestradiol being at a greater risk of osteoporosis. Sports Hormone Blood Test can help measure the levels of oestradiol and help to identify if one needs to opt for external hormone intake to balance the deficiency.
Testosterone, also commonly called as the male hormone, is essentially found in males and in much smaller quantities in females. It plays an important role in the growth phase of the male body and is responsible for maturing of male reproductive organs, development of masculine features (facial hair etc.,), distribution of muscle mass and regulation of metabolism. In females, it influences distribution of muscle mass, fat and growth of red blood cells. Excess levels of testosterone is related to development of clots inside the body due to increased amounts of red blood cells. Reduced levels of testosterone can lead to loss of lean muscle mass, erectile dysfunction and low libido.
Have you been feeling any of these symptoms lately?
The Sports Hormone Blood Test is suitable for individuals experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
1. Lower/reduced lean muscle mass
3. Erectile dysfunction
4. Weaker bones/osteoporosis
5. Disturbed periods
If you're an athlete, or just someone who is interested in how their body works, then you may have heard of sports hormone blood tests. There are a few different types of sports hormone blood tests that can be done, but the most common one is the testosterone test. This test can help identify whether you have low testosterone levels, which can impact your athletic performance.
Other hormones that can be tested include cortisol and growth hormone. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can impact muscle mass and recovery times, while growth hormone helps promote muscle growth and repair. If you suspect that you have an imbalance in any of these hormones, then a sports hormone blood test can help confirm it.
If you're considering having a sports hormone blood test done, talk to your doctor about which one is right for you. Depending on your goals and needs, they may recommend a specific test that can provide you with the most accurate results.
Is your supplement intake helping you or harming you?
The Sports Hormone Blood Test is essential to know the levels of essential steroids - testosterone and oestradiol. The blood test sample will detect the presence of testosterone & oestradiol and let the individual know if the intake amount of hormone supplements is aiding the body to be healthier or if it is more detrimental to the health of the individual. Testosterone in greater amounts can impair liver function and lead to higher red blood cell count which is detrimental to overall health.
