Initially, in order to diagnose low testosterone levels, a medical examination is required.

It is important to visit specialized centers with experienced nursing and medical staff, who will make you feel comfortable and allow you to discuss the problem you are facing without hesitation. During your visit, a complete medical history will be requested. Then, a session with the Specialist Andrologist will follow.

Afterwards, a laboratory test will be performed, a fundamental part of which consists of blood tests.

  • Blood test
  • Hormonal Analysis
    • Total Testosterone
    • Free Testosterone
    • Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG)
