This test is used to determine the level of dihydrotestosterone in the blood. DHT is involved in the development of male characteristics. DHT functions to control baldness and problems associated with prostate. DHT is produced by testes, adrenal gland, prostate gland and hair follicles and is classified as an androgen. It is the biologically active form of testosterone and is associated with prostate disorders like, prostate cancer and enlargement of prostate (hyperplasia). This test is recommended to evaluate conditions like infertility in women and men, abnormal hair growth in women and testicular tumors.
