Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is a protein produced by the liver which binds to the hormones testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, and estradiol and transports them through the blood. The SHBG test is typically used to help evaluate whether a person has an excess or deficiency of testosterone. Hormones which are bound to SHBG are biologically inactive and not available for the body to use. If a person's SHBG levels are abnormal, then a testosterone blood test may not accurately represent the amount of testosterone that is available to be taken into the body's tissues. This test is typically ordered when a person is experiencing signs of abnormal testosterone levels which do not seem to be reflected by their testosterone blood test results. Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin is usually ordered with a testosterone test and may be ordered with other hormone tests as well.

No fasting is required. Patients should stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection.
