Why Is The Medichecks HomeTestosterone Test, One Of My Recommended Services?

Spoiler Alert, Medichecks UK Are An Organisation I Personally Use.

This Medichecks Review, Will Tell You Why I Advise You Test Your Testosterone Levels, Why I  Use Medichecks UK & Recommend Them To You!

 

Why Get Your Testosterone Levels Checked

To be honest, it is near impossible to naturally attain testosterone levels that are too high so it is unlikely that anyone has been advised to test their levels for that.

So the two main reason you are going to want to get your T levels tested are if you suspect you have low levels or if you’re been trying to increase levels and want to test your progress.

If anyone is suggesting that your T levels are too high and to buy a test for this, I’d be very cautious and advise you see your doctor first and discuss any symptoms.

You may want to look at getting a home testosterone test, as going through the NHS, getting to the point where they believe low testosterone may potentially be the issue and they look at testosterone testing means “jumping through quite a number of hoops”.

So a service like this is certainly quicker in terms being able to get a test done and also the turn around times in terms of getting results.

What Are The Signs I May Have Low T Levels

There are several signs that you may have low testosterone levels including:

  • Loss/ failing to gain muscle mass
  • Retaining/ failing to lose body fat
  • Lack Of Motivation
  • Lack Of Energy
  • Sexual Performance Issues

All of the above could be signs that you have low T, I suggest you check out this Testosterone And Health – 5 Common Signs Of Low T article for more in depth details on the signs that you have low.

The Testing Service

All test kits come with a prepaid first class envelope to post your sample to their laboratory.

They will give you specific instructions on how to take your samples and how long after taking your sample you need to post them.

Then once they have received your results from the lab, they get posted on a secure personal dashboard at mymedichecks.com.

As mentioned above; you can see at a glance whether your results are within the normal range or not.

Their doctors will provide notes/ comments on any abnormal results and will advise what your next course of action needs to be.

The service is in depth and they like to make sure you are comfortable using the service and that they get and provide you as accurate results as possible.

So they like to make sure that you’re able to login to your account, you’ve purchased your test and you inform them when you’ve sent your sample, so they know to expect it and expedite if necessary.

They may also request info about your current health & family medical history, this helps them to interpret your results as accurately as possible.

All results are totally confidential and you are ale to print copies, should you need to take them to your doctor or a specialist.

If you aren’t confident taking blood or aren’t able to for whatever reason, they have partner clinics you can attend for your samples to be taken.

You can even arrange for nurses to come to your home and assist take the sample, they like to make sure they have every angle covered.

They also have a pretty quick turn around for all blood tests (2 days for testosterone tests).

Prices

Their price for Testosterone Testing For £29 is at the slightly lower end of the market and most organisations on average charge from £29 – £39 per test.

My Rating & Independent Ratings

I personally give them an overall rating of 4.5/ 5 stars, there aren’t really any areas of weakness for me in their offering.

If I have to be a bit picky as part of this Medichecks Review, I’d say they almost offer too may tests.

If you aren’t sure exactly what you want testing for, this could be very overwhelming.

They counter this by making the site extremely easy to navigate when you do know what you want.

You can call in and speak to their very helpful staff, they can recommend what tests you should consider based on what information you want to find out/ issues you’re potentially having.

Other than that though, for me the pricing and the level of service they provide is at the absolute top end of this market!

Their Feefo Rating

You can also see their Feefo rating all over their site, Feefo is an independent global review company used by many organisations.

The feefo ratings for Medichecks UK is 4.7/5 and that is based on over 1800 verified customer reviews.

Hopefully between my rating/ experience with Medichecks UK and how other people are rating them, it’s clear that they offer a highly professional and effective service.

    This was a very informative article I did not know you could have your level of testosterone checked. thank you very much. I have seen you give the prices of the test in pounds which is because obviously, you must be based in the UK. I currently live in Spain, do you know if it is possible to have this type of test here as well? Could you give me any direction on how to go about it? thank you very much

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Barbara,

      I’m glad you found it useful, you need to make sure you have healthy testosterone levels for a number of reasons which you can find out more about here: Testosterone And Health – The Benefits Of Healthy T Levels – You will be able to get testosterone testing in Spain; unfortunately I can’t recommend a company in Spain but I suggest doing a search in Google and seeing which ones have the best customer ratings.

      I’m glad you found this useful, there are a number of ways to increase testosterone, I suggest you check out these series of articles, it will help with this and also direct you on what you need to avoid. https://testosteronetips.net/c

  3. AbiodunS says:

    Thank you for this nice article. I don’t know that there can be imbalance in the level of testosterone in man. I do experience poor sexual performance most times, though I haven’t complained to my doctor because it is not often. 

    I don’t know if this might be due to low level of testosterone. I am not based in the UK but I am glad to hear that you are going to write an article for people outside UK. I am looking forward for the article. 

    Thank you so much. 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Abiodun,

      Yeah unfortunately lots of men now suffer from low testosterone and it is produced the same as any other hormone. Yeah please do keep an eye out for that next article, as low T can come with a number of health issues. Check outthis article for more of an idea: Testosterone And Health – How Low T Effects Male Health

  4. Raquel says:

    This is very interesting. I’ve always associated testosterone levels to men, since I thought it was probably very low for women. I’ve read that a woman’s testosterone levels naturally change throughout her life, her menstrual cycle, and even at different times of the day. Testosterone can affect fertility, sex drive, red blood cell production, muscle mass and fat distribution. The home testosterone test can definitely come in handy. Thanks!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Raquel, 

      Yes while it is predominantly a male hormone, having too little testosterone is a health risk for men and women alike! So knowing that your T levels aren’t too low is important.

  5. Paul says:

    Dear Nate,

    Thanks a lot for the insightful & informative article and I got great insights from your article.

    I am unaware that we can test our Testosterone and your post is an eye-opener. Every single time I read an article of yours I learn so much new information! Signs for low testosterone levels you shared is very helpful. Medichecks service sounds great and reliable. Indeed, their pricing is cheap and your 10% discounts is just like icing on the cake make it much cheaper.

    Your article certainly made me to think more on the subject and I will be waiting for your recommendations on home testosterone test services for other territories.

    Valuable information, you have really given a lot of value in this article.

    Much Success!

    Paul

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Paul, 

      Good to hear that you’ve found the article useful and my others useful!

      Yes you certainly can get your T levels checked, if you do feel like you’re potentially suffering from low T, it’s definitely something I’d recommend considering, Medichecks are a great UK based company that offer testosterone tests and tons of other blood tests as well

  6. Afonso Zhu says:

    I would like to have so many things checked, but it’s such an inconvenience to go to the doctors. Having to wait weeks after booking an appointment, and then wait again for the results after finally going. It’s so refreshing to know that now you can do this from the comfort of your own home. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Afonso,

      Thanks for your comment, getting areas of your health checked out are exactly what companies like Medichecks UK are there for. You do have the waiting time with doctors; but in a lot of scenarios blood tests from doctors in reaction to an exixting health problem, as supposed to proactively taking control of your health & dealing with things before they become a large health issue.

      With testosterone tests in particular, most GP’s in the UK don’t really understand the importance of T or are willing to order testosterone tests for patients, despite Hypogonadism (medically low tesosterone) being at an all time high in the UK, that is why services like the medichecks home testosterone test are so useful.

      It allows you to take control of your own health!

  7. Iamlooking4answer says:

    This is interesting, I might consider checking my testosterone levels. Besides that, I might look for ways to boost them through natural methods. I have used Tongkat Ali and it is very useful in increasing testosterone level. It is also called LongJack and it’s a herbal remedy originated from Southeast Asian countries.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey,

      Yes this is precisely what the home testosterone tests from Medichecks are for, they help you keep track of what your T levels are & enable you to proactively manage this before it potentially becomes a big issue.

      Yeah Tongkat Ali is thought to be quite effective for increasing testosterone, there are quite a few other herbs like Ashwagandha which are extremely effective.

  8. Leona says:

    Thank you for your honest evaluation of this product, and the possible reasons to be tested. So many in my generation feel they have to be silent about possible low testosterone levels, as they seem to equate it with sexual performance only. I agree, low energy and loss of muscle mass are key concerns as well. Because it is a gradual loss [especially the muscle mass], often it is merely attributed to overall “old age” and not a decline in testosterone, which can be treated effectively. Good on you for posting this helpful, informative review.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Leona,

      Yeah you’re correct, part the problem is that people are potentially embarrassed about having low testosterone, another part is that a lot of people aren’t even aware that they have low T levels & the symptoms, they just think is normal; or as you pointed out, a normal part of aging.

      Yeah these home testosterone tests enable people to proactively check if they are suffering from low testosterone & take action accordingly, as in reality it’s quite an easy problem to fix & sadly most GP’s are reluctant to order these tests for patients.

  9. Michel says:

    Thank you for sharing this information. I had no idea that there was such a useful service called Medichecks and it is a pity that it is not worldwide, as it would encourage more people to get themselves tested and know the status of their health.

    I think a lot of men suffer from low testosterone levels and don’t even know it, so if they are experiencing any of the symptoms mentions, they should have themselves checked as it is always good to know why you aren’t feeling great.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Michel,

      Yeah the medichecks UK service is a very good one, it is a shame that it isn’t worldwide; but there are similar services to the medicheck blood tests available via other companies in other countries, if you want a recommendation for where you’re based let me know.

      Yes testosterone levels for men are at an all time low & that is across all age groups. Yeah a lot of the men suffering from low T have no idea that’s the problem, things like fatigue, depression, weight gain are all signs of low T, that people just seem to accept.

      So yes always best to take control & proactively manage your health!

  10. Benson says:

    Daily discoveries keep making life easy for humans and I a really passed to know that you can check your testosterone level on your own. With such kits available to all, one would easily make the move to get a booster of find a solution to the problem early enough to avoid severe situations. This is a very informative article and I hope we all pay attention to it and get our testosterone level checked soon. Cheers.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Benson,

      Yeah blood tests have obviously been about for some time; but private companies being able to offer them is something relatively new.

      It works particularly well for people to be able to do things like home testosterone tests as traditionally it’s very difficult to get these through your doctor and more often than not, these occur once it is already too late!

      Using a service like Medichecks UK allows you to proactively manage your testosterone health. As you rightly mention, if there steps you need to take to improve T, it’s better to know earlier rather than be in a position where you’ve been suffering from low testosterone for a prolonged period of time.

  11. robertmccarty says:

    Home test are the future to many health aspects in our life including the current pandemic. Testosterone levels in men are under reported and largely over looked by most men. Depression, anxiety, muscle health and many other conditions are linked to Testosterone.  Great review of a home test and a reasonable price as well! Will check the availability in the US and get one asap!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Robert, 

      Yeah I very much agree that home medical tests are going to be the future, especially as health services have more stress on them & this means they are less proactive. 

      So if we want to proactively manage our health, it is coming down to us, that is why things like these home testosterone tests from Medichecks UK are ideal.

      Yeah their testing is very reasonably priced, Medichecks sadly don’t service the US; but if you want recommendation for a US company  just let me know
