The Male Hormone Panel evaluates 9 different hormones involved in male reproductive and sexual functions through a  saliva testing.

The Expanded Male Hormone Panel (eMHP) also includes:

  • Testosterone – This hormone is produced in the testes and is necessary for healthy male reproductive function. 

  • Androstenedione – Another important reproductive hormone precursor. Is a weak (androgen) and a precursor to both male and female hormones. 

  • Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – Excess DHT is associated with enlargement of the prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BHP) and male pattern baldness.

  • DHEA and DHEA-S – A hormone produced in the adrenal glands as a precursor to testosterone and estrogen. 

  • Estrone & Estradiol (Estrogens) – Frequently thought of as “female hormones”, estrogens play important roles in male health as well. High estrogens have been associated with breast enlargement, prostate cancer, fat redistribution, and obesity. 

  • Progesterone – Progesterone is often perceived as a ‘female’ hormone, however it is also produced in men and is a precursor to testosterone and estrogens. 

  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a hormone that stimulates sperm production. It is released from the pituitary gland in the brain.

  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is another pituitary hormone that stimulates testosterone production by the testes.

Hormone imbalances in men can contribute to:

  • Decreased libido

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Sleep disorders

  • Decreased muscle mass and strength

  • General fatigue/decreased energy

  • Increased risk for coronary artery disease or heart attack

  • Hair loss or thinning

  • Increased fat accumulation

  • Urinary / prostrate problems

  • Decreased bone density osteopenia or osteoporosis

  • Weakened immune function

  • Irritability and depression
