  7. GGT -Gamma Glutamyl Transpeptidase Liver Enzyme
    $40.57

    The GGT bood test looks for an enzyme, or protein, called gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) in your blood. GGT is found in liver cells. This test helps your doctor look for possible damage to your liver or its ducts. It can also help tell the difference between liver and bone disease if your results from a different blood test called alkaline phosphatase are abnormal. Higher than normal test results could be a sign of liver damage from diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, tumors, or pancreatic cancer. But a higher than normal GGT level does not tell you the specific cause of liver disease or damage.

  17. TRT + hCG Lab Test Panel
    $175.41

    This panel includes: Testosterone, Total, LC/MS and Free (Equilibrium Dialysis), and 17-OH-progesterone, a metabolite that has been correlated with sperm production.

    Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) shuts down upstream hormones like LH and FSH required for sperm production, so men on TRT generally have a difficult time to father a child. Some studies show that adding human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to a TRT protocol may improve sperm production since hCG is an analog of LH that could stimulate sperm production. But optimizing hCG dose and frequency based on sperm count can be a time consuming process since it takes at least 8 weeks to see changes in sperm tests. Fortunately, there is an easier way by measuring 17-OH-progesterone to predict the efficacy of the hCG+TRT protocol without having to wait for 8 weeks between hCG dose/frequency changes.

  40. PSA, Free: Total Ratio Reflex
    Special Price $68.25 Regular Price $72.01

    NOTE: This test can only be purchased by men with suspect PSA over 4 mg/dL.  Free PSA will not be provided for PSA under 4 ng/mL.

    PSA circulates through the body in two ways; bound to other proteins or by itself. Unbound PSA is called free PSA. A free-PSA test will measure the percentage of unbound PSA while a PSA test is used to measure the total of free and bound PSA in the blood. The free PSA is a defective variant of normal PSA that can no longer bind to other proteins and so circulates in the blood in the free form. Although the reason why this is the case is poorly understood - patients with prostate cancer may have lower free PSA levels than those with a benign prostate condition.

  48. 17 Hydroxyprogesterone : HCG + TRT Efficacy Predictor
    $82.95

    To find out if sperm count is normalized in men using hCG plus TRT, several studies have found that 17OH-P blood level is correlated to intratesticular testosterone (ITT) required for the testicles to make sperm, so testing for this hormone could not only save time while optimizing HCG dose/frequency but also eliminate the need to perform testicular aspirations, a very difficult procedure to do. Sperm count does not stabilize until 6-8 weeks after starting hCG plus TRT, so knowing your 17OH-progesterone blood level can give you a quick way to determine if your hCG dose and frequency is adequate before your first follow-up semen analysis after 8 weeks.

That test uses immunoassay technology that cannot differentiate C-Reactive Protein (involved in inflammation) from estradiol, so it reads the combination of the two as estradiol. This ultrasensitive estradiol test is based on liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS), an assay technology that does not have that limitation. 

    Important note:  The blood sample is sent out to Quest Diagnostics Nichols Institute San Juan Capistrano, Caifornia.  Overnight delivery and testing is performed on Sunday and Friday.  Reports are available within 5-7 business days from the time the specimen is collected.

What Are Men's Health Tests and How Can They Help You?

 

You might be happy to find out that men's health tests are affordable labs you can take advantage of to assess your general health. The men's health labs are designed to reveal important information about your hormones and you get the results back in just a few business days.

Whether you're on TRT or not, you can test so many substances and hormones in the body to see if you're at risk for a life-threatening disease. Without further ado, let's discover a few test categories suitable for men of all ages.

Testosterone and TRT Management Tests

Today's technology allows you to accurately test your free and total testosterone levels. You can order these tests individually at an affordable price or go for more comprehensive testosterone panels. For example, men usually go for a lab test that looks at their testosterone and estradiol levels at the same time. Having too much estradiol in your system can lead to side effects such as gynecomastia, so it's a good idea to test this hormone too.

At the same time, you might want to go for a panel that checks your testosterone levels as well as other hormones and substances in your body. For example, the TRT Plus hCG panel is suitable for those who want to increase their fertility while on TRT. Another panel offers complete blood count tests to check your hematocrit, red blood cells and other important parameters related to your blood.

If you're on TRT, you might be happy to find out that you can go for test panels designed specifically for those who take exogenous testosterone. These panels check your testosterone levels using LC/MS technology, and reveal information about your blood, your pituitary hormones, kidney function and other important details. Once you get the results back from such a comprehensive TRT panel, you can then talk to your TRT doctor and see what adjustments you need to make for optimal health.

Basic Blood Tests

This category includes simple, yet very important tests that every man should do at least once a year. Some of these labs include checking your blood sugar levels (glucose test), blood lipid levels, electrolytes, total protein content in the body, etc.

These tests reveal vital information about your health and they are ridiculously inexpensive. For example, a basic lipid panel can reveal if your cholesterol and triglyceride levels are out of normal ranges. If your lipids are too high, you are at risk of developing cardiovascular diseases or even having a stroke. Depending on your results, your doctor can recommend lifestyle changes to improve your lipids. In other words, a simple test can actually save your life.

Similarly, it's recommended to do a metabolic panel once every few years to check your liver and kidney function. These are some of the most important organs in your body as they're responsible for filtering out toxins. A metabolic panel is inexpensive and it usually checks your blood sugar levels, calcium, total protein levels, electrolytes and liver and kidney enzymes.

Your electrolytes such as sodium and potassium are important because they are usually depleted through sweat and they're responsible for maintaining healthy blood pressure in your system. Similarly, substances such as creatine, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, transaminase, and bilirubin, among others, reveal how well your liver and kidneys work. If your liver is not working properly, it's better to know sooner rather than later.

Finally, checking your thyroid hormones such as T3, T4 and TSH it's important too. Your thyroid is responsible for maintaining many metabolic processes within your system. If you're constantly fatigued, your thyroid gland might not work properly.

Bodybuilder Tests

Whether you're an amateur or professional bodybuilder with years of experience, you would benefit greatly from ordering a bodybuilding panel. These batteries of tests are designed to help bodybuilders achieve their goals while remaining healthy at the same time. You can choose from basic bodybuilding panels that test your hematocrit, testosterone, and many other hormones and comprehensive bodybuilding panels that are suitable for advanced bodybuilders. For example, advanced bodybuilding panels also test your prolactin and DHT levels, among other hormones and substances.

Fatigue Panels

If you're like most people, you probably felt fatigued very recently. This symptom is common among many people and is caused by a wide variety of health problems. That's why you'll see that a fatigue panel is highly recommended to men of all ages, particularly those on TRT. Excess tiredness can be caused by anemia, immune issues, obesity, diabetes, and other problems.

Fatigue panels look at numerous hormones and substances in the body that are responsible for your overall well-being and energy levels. For example, if your blood sugar levels are out of order, you will feel tired even if you eat three meals a day. Abnormal glucose levels might also be a sign of pre-diabetes.

Secondly, your thyroid hormones are responsible for regulating your energy levels, as mentioned earlier. A fatigue panel checks your thyroid hormones and how they interfere with other bodily functions and processes. Having too few red blood cells can also make you feel fatigued, even after a good night's sleep. This happens because red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen throughout your body. If not, enough oxygen reaches your tissues and organs, you will struggle with low energy levels throughout the day.

Finally, your cortisol levels are also tightly linked with your energy, stamina, and cognitive processes. Cortisol is also known as the stress hormone. Too much of it will make you feel tense and hyperactive. Chronically high cortisol levels can lead to life-threatening diseases such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and other problems. A fatigue panel also looks at your cortisol and DHEA levels to see if this is the cause of your excess tiredness.
