The SHBG test is typically used to help evaluate whether a person has an excess or deficiency of testosterone.

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.

Lab tests FAQs

No. At Tripment Health, we focus on providing transparent healthcare services to uninsured or under-insured individuals. We’ve negotiated prices directly with lab test facilities to make diagnostic lab panels available to individuals who would rather pay directly than go through a private or government-sponsored insurance carrier.

No. By purchasing a blood panel, you will not be able to submit any claim, bill, or other request for reimbursement to any insurer, third-party payer, or Government health program. However, you can use your FSA or HSA card.

You will receive a payment confirmation email, then an additional email confirming your appointment details (type of test, time and location of appointment, and QR code). You will need to present your QR code to the testing facility in order to check in.

Once your test is complete, you will receive your results within 1-3 business days.

With a blood panel, you can establish your body’s baseline values for basic health measurements like cholesterol (total, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol/HDL ratio), glucose and hemoglobin A1c. Additionally, depending on the blood panel you choose, you will receive data on performance measurements such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, and/or Testosterone.
