Understanding the intricate balance of hormones is crucial in the journey towards optimal health, especially for men. ZRT Laboratories introduces two comprehensive Dried Blood Spot (DBS) profiles, Male Blood Profiles I & II, designed to provide valuable insights into sex hormones, adrenal function, and thyroid health. In this blog, we'll delve into the components of each profile, their significance, and the considerations they address for men seeking a thorough hormonal assessment.

Deciphering Male Blood Profile I: 

Tailored for men, Male Blood Profile I stands as a robust tool for assessing sex and adrenal hormone levels, with an added PSA test to gauge prostate health.

  • Testosterone (T), total
  • Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
  • Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG)
  • DHEA-S (DS)
  • Cortisol (C)

A closer look at the components reveals a comprehensive analysis of primary male sex hormones, their major binding globulin (SHBG), and a screening for adrenal health through morning cortisol levels. The inclusion of PSA adds an extra layer, aiding in the assessment of prostate health.

Considerations for Male Blood Profile I:

This profile is ideal for monitoring and addressing various health concerns specific to men, including:
