Two very common questions I get on my forum are "If I suspect low testosterone, what tests should I get?" and "What testosterone tests will my doctor likely order?"
Unfortunately, there are many physicians out there still new to diagnosing and testing low testosterone and often important items get overlooked. For this reason, until the medical community gets better up to speed as a whole, it is important for men to know the fundamentals of testosterine testing in order to ask important questions.
For this reason I have compiled what I call the 12 Common Tests for Men with Suspected Low Testosterone. These testosterone tests are very important, because they can have such a strong and direct bearing on either a) testosterone levels or b) safe administration of Testosterone Therapy (HRT):http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Testosterone_Tests
I've looked at the tests and I was hoping you could either say
yes, get all those tests done
no, just get tests X, Y Z done
Im 33 and I had a test of 320ish ng in January
I did a bunch of stuff from your site, including losing 65lb
May 2012, my testosterone total was was 529ng, which is not the best at all,
I still have to lose more fat, I'll be done 10-5-12, and I'll get retested
or should I get the battery of test you mention in the link above?
I got a price quote from direct labs and its $594 for all those tests.... I think I'd have to get it at least 2x with 12 months to see where I am at based on crap I do
