Testosterone: The testosterone blood test measures the total amount of testosterone in blood. Helpful in the diagnosis of hypogonadism, hypopituitarism, Klinefelter syndrome, and impotence (low values) in males, and hirsutism, anovulation, amenorrhea, and virilization in females, due to Stein-Leventhal syndrome, masculinizing tumors of ovary (eg, Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor), tumors of the adrenal cortices, and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (high values).
DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid which is produced by both the adrenal cortex and testis. The levels of this steroid increase before the onset of puberty (adrenarche), and decrease significantly with age. DHEA and DHEA-S are the major precursors of 17-ketosteroids.
