Who can order an imaware test?
This test is only for adults aged 18 and older.
What is considered a normal testosterone level for men?
Healthy post-pubescent males over the age of 19 have a testosterone level of between 300ng/dL and 1000ng/dL. If you are above or below that range, it can be considered an issue.
Is this test relevant for women?
This testosterone test is calibrated to the standard levels of testosterone found in post-pubescent men. While women may want to take testosterone tests for conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)⁷, the qualitative results are calibrated to the male sex. Please consult your physician if you are interested in using our at-home testosterone test for female use.
Can this test help me learn if my lifestyle changes are working?
Yes. For example; if you are on hormone replacement therapy for testosterone, this is an ideal test to take regularly to see if your levels are increasing to a normal, healthy range. If you are not on hormone replacement therapy and you have low testosterone, there are natural lifestyle changes you can make to help — such as getting a good night's sleep, decreasing alcohol consumption and regularly exercising.

What will my results tell me?
The testosterone test results will tell you if your total testosterone hormone levels are within normal limits. If you are above or below the normal range of testosterone, or are still experiencing symptoms even if you’re in the normal range, your test results will help you when engaging with your physician.
Who should take this test?
