How to use this free testosterone calculator

Total Testosterone is only part of the picture. If you let your doctor tell you that everything is fine or you are normal and they haven’t measured or calculated your FREE TESTOSTERONE, then your at risk of being misdiagnosed, and will continue to suffer through with symptoms of low testosterone levels.

Free Testosterone is the portion of unbound male hormone that is free from binding proteins.

Our calculator will help you either estimate or accurately determine what your Free Testosterone level is.

You will need the following in order to calculate:

Albumin:

This is a protein that weakly binds to your testosterone. The albumin and testosterone bound together is called bioavailable testosterone.

This complex can become more easily disassociated than the Testosterone bound to SHBG or sex hormone binding globulin.

Make sure you have the correct units before entering the albumin into the calculator. 
Albumin in the UK is normally expressed as g/L and the average is around 43g/L.

If you do not know your albumin level then use the preset number of 43 g/L.

SHBG:

This is the sex hormone binding globulin and this is expressed in the units nmol/L

Testosterone:

This is the Total Testosterone and this is used to calculate your free testosterone based on the albumin and the SHBG levels.
