Confidential blood testing

The Men’s Health Clinic can offer you affordable and convenient easy access to the necessary blood tests for an initial diagnosis and ongoing monitoring of treatment.

For accuracy of results and better reliability with sample collection, we recommend venous samples for all blood tests, rather than finger prick. You have the option of attending a clinic location to have your blood drawn, or you can order a test kit and make your own arrangements with a qualified healthcare professional. Alternatively, we can organise for a nurse to visit your home or place of work and collect your blood sample at a time and date convenient to you.

All diagnostic blood tests include expert review of your results by our doctor, who will personally contact you with their professional recommendations once we receive your results back from the lab.

Further details on the blood tests we have available from clinic, and the various options for collecting your sample, can be found below. Please contact us by telephone to place your order.

Add-On Blood Tests

The following tests can only be ordered in addition to one of the blood test profiles listed above. They cannot be ordered as stand-alone tests.

PSA: £49

Contact & Book

This blood test measures the amount of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by normal cells in the prostate and also by prostate cancer cells. It is normal to have a small amount of PSA in your blood, and the amount rises slightly as you get older and your prostate gets bigger. A raised PSA level may suggest you have a problem with your prostate, but this does not necessarily mean cancer. All abnormal results should be discussed with your doctor.

Special Instructions:
  • For an accurate PSA result, you should not have an active urinary infection, ejaculated or exercised heavily in the last 48 hours; had a prostate biopsy in the last 6 weeks or had a DRE (digital rectal examination) in the last week.

DHT: £119

Contact & Book

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is one of your bioavailable male androgens. Testosterone is converted to DHT by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase which is located in the testes and prostate. DHT has effects on brain function (including libido), muscle growth and repair, and prostate health.

Please note that this test is sent to a referral lab for processing and results can take up to 10 working days to arrive.

Special Instructions:
  • None

DHEA-S: £49

Contact & Book

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone produced from cholesterol by the adrenal glands, which your body converts into testosterone and oestrogen. It affects many areas of health and wellbeing. Most of the DHEA in the body exists in the blood in the sulphated form, DHEA-S, which is what this test measures.

Special Instructions:
  • Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin, you should discuss this with your doctor.

Pregnenolone: £189

Contact & Book

Pregnenolone is the precursor to all steroid hormones. For steroid hormone production, cholesterol converts into pregnenolone in the adrenal glands and then several enzymes complete the production of multiple hormones.

Please note that this test is sent to a referral lab for processing and results can take up to 20 working days to arrive.

Special Instructions:
  • None

Serum Cortisol: £49

Contact & Book

Cortisol plays a role in metabolism and is the main hormone involved in stress and the fight-or-flight response. Disorders of the adrenal glands can cause the over or underproduction of stress hormones which can cause symptoms such as excessive fatigue, anxiety, insomnia and weight gain. This test measures whether your cortisol production levels are too high or too low, which could be having a negative impact on your sense of well-being.

Special Instructions:
  • Please take your sample as soon as possible after waking, and before 10:00.
  • Your result could be affected by corticosteroid medication (e.g. prednisolone). Ask your doctor whether you should stop before testing.
  • Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin, you should discuss this with your doctor.
