Balancing Act: Test Your Hormone Levels

Get the lowdown on your hormone levels

Why measure hormone levels? Because these cell-signaling compounds govern everything your body does, from weight loss to prostate cancer. We offer complete male and female hormone tests, so you can get your hormones checked for hormone replacement therapy, weight loss, menopause and more. Find out if your hormone levels are normal today.

Do I need to fast for hormone testing?
Generally speaking, no—you do not need to fast to take hormone tests. You can do dried urine hormone testing, comprehensive hormone testing through blood draw, even saliva tests for sleep disorders.

What do hormone tests look for?

  • Hormone levels of estrogen and estradiol
  • Thyroid hormone production and function
  • Hormone imbalances for weight loss
  • Free and total testosterone
  • Prostate specific antigen (PSA) for prostate cancer
  • Blood testing and urine testing available

Male and Female Hormone Tests

For the best hormone tests, choose our comprehensive panels. Know your hormone levels today.

FSH and LH Blood Test - Life Extension

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) test

5 (2)
  • $55.00
  • $41.25
  • Save $13.75

The reproductive hormones follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) are produced by the brain and control the production and release of hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. This test is especially important to aging men and women.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) Blood Test - Life Extension
  • $50.00
  • $37.50
  • Save $12.50

This test can identify elevated dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels, which have been associated with male pattern hair loss, acne and prostate enlargement.

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin Blood Test - Life Extension

Measures sex hormone binding globulin, which deactivates sex hormones

5 (5)
  • $33.00
  • $24.75
  • Save $8.25

This blood test measures the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Low SHBG may lead to ovarian cysts, diabetes and hypothyroidism, while high SHBG may be associated with hyperthyroidism and anorexia. High SHBG levels may also be linked to breast and testicular cancers.

Testosterone (Free with Total) Blood Test - Life Extension

Comprehensive testosterone lab test

5 (4)
  • $99.00
  • $74.25
  • Save $24.75

Most of the body’s circulating testosterone is bound by sex-hormone binding globulin or albumin, leaving only a fraction free. Our test measures total testosterone, as well as free (unbound) levels of this critical hormone.

Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) Growth Hormone Marker Blood Test - Life Extension

Useful as a biomarker to help assess blood levels of growth hormone (GH)

5 (2)
  • $75.00
  • $56.25
  • Save $18.75

Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1, a.k.a. somatomedin C) is a marker of growth hormone (GH) secretion. Due to GH’s short half-life in the body, blood testing for IGF-1 is a more reliable indicator of GH levels than testing for GH itself.

Estrone Blood Test - Life Extension

Tests for estrone (E1), the least abundant of the three estrogens

5 (1)
  • $35.00
  • $26.25
  • Save $8.75

Estrone is one of three major estrogen hormones and when elevated has been associated with some chronic diseases. Blood testing for estrone should be considered by women using replacement hormones for further evaluation.

Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEA-S) Blood Test - Life Extension

Tests levels of the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S)

5 (3)
  • $61.00
  • $45.75
  • Save $15.25

This hormone test checks your levels of DHEA sulfate, and is more stable than testing just for DHEA. Knowing your levels of DHEA-S will help you and your doctor design a supplementation regimen, hormone replacement therapy treatment, and also help assess other health factors such as risk for cardiovascular disease and more.

Estradiol Blood Test - Life Extension

Measures levels of estradiol, the major form of the hormone estrogen

5 (3)
  • $33.00
  • $24.75
  • Save $8.25

This blood test measures estradiol, the most abundant form of the hormone estrogen produced by women and men (in lower quantities). Aging can impact this hormone, which affects bone health, heart health, nerves and metabolism.

Pregnenolone Blood Test - Life Extension
  • $116.00
  • $87.00
  • Save $29.00

Pregnenolone is important for proper brain development and a healthy hormone balance. Testing for blood levels of this hormone can help monitor if you are deficient and provide guidance if you decide to supplement.

Prolactin Blood Test - Life Extension

Tests for levels of the hormone prolactin, secreted by the pituitary

0 (0)
  • $55.00
  • $41.25
  • Save $13.75

This test measures prolactin levels to help evaluate for tumors of the lungs, the pituitary gland and the kidneys, as well as sexual dysfunction.

Progesterone Blood Test - Life Extension

Tests for levels of the hormone progesterone in men and women

0 (0)
  • $55.00
  • $41.25
  • Save $13.75

Progesterone, a hormone with multiple health benefits, can become unbalanced in both men and women as they age.

Estradiol, Sensitive Blood Test - Life Extension
  • $60.00
  • $45.00
  • Save $15.00

Estradiol is the most abundant form of the hormone estrogen produced by women and (to a lesser degree) men. The liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry blood test is a more sensitive method of testing for estradiol than standard methodology.

Evaluates important metabolites not measured in blood

3.7 (3)
  • $299.00
  • $224.25
  • Save $74.75

If you're getting hormone therapy, your doctor may want to check your hormone levels. This panel measures estrogens, progesterone, androgens, glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, melatonin, thyroid and two organic acids.

Leptin Blood Test - Life Extension
  • $75.00
  • $56.25
  • Save $18.75

Leptin is the gatekeeper of fat metabolism, monitoring how much energy a person takes in. Higher levels signal satiety and low levels signal hunger. The leptin blood test provides information concerning the level of leptin circulating in the body.

Estrogens, Total Blood Test - Life Extension

Total estrogen is a measurement of overall estrogen status

0 (0)
  • $141.00
  • $105.75
  • Save $35.25

This test measures the total estrogen hormones in the blood and is considered a more consistent test than measuring individual estrogen hormones.
