Description

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) tests measure the level of the hormone dihydrotestosterone in the body. DHT is an androgen, a group of hormones associated with male characteristics and sexual development. High levels of DHT are seen in men and are also responsible for male-pattern baldness, an enlargement of the prostate, and acne in some cases. Low levels of DHT may indicate a disorder of the reproductive system or a hormonal imbalance. DHT tests are important for the assessment of an individual’s overall hormonal and reproductive health, as well as for evaluating potential treatment options for some conditions, such as male pattern baldness or prostate enlargement. DHT tests are used to diagnose and monitor conditions such as male infertility, hormonal imbalances, and other endocrine disorders.
