A dihydrotestosterone blood test is a medical test that measures the level of DHT in the bloodstream. It may be ordered by a healthcare provider if there is a concern about low or high levels of DHT in the body, such as in the case of suspected hormone imbalances or androgenic alopecia (male-pattern baldness).
The results are usually reported as a numerical value, which can be used to assess DHT levels and any potential abnormalities. It is important to note that DHT levels can vary throughout the day and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as age, medications, and underlying medical conditions. Your healthcare provider can help interpret the results of a DHT blood test and determine the best course of action based on your individual circumstances.
