Hormone Level Testing

The first step in the path to restoring the hormone levels of your youth is to find out where your levels are now. Correct dosing of testosterone is very important to make sure you take enough to get the desired effect without taking too much and running into unpleasant side effects.

The only way to get a hormone level test is through a doctor. To get in touch with one our specializing doctors please use the form on the right. When you come in for your first appointment the doctor will discuss your symptoms with you and have a nurse take blood for a work up. This blood test will be used to determine your current hormone levels and to look at other levels so the doctor has a good base line to measure the success of your treatment. Some of these other levels include growth hormone levels and cholesterol levels. Testosterone has been shown in some cases to help reduce bad cholesterol and the doctor will want to keep an eye on this.

In some cases the doctor will also want to test you for prostate cancer. This is routine and something you should be doing anyways. The reasoning is that increased testosterone levels can make a tumor grow faster which is something you don't want if you have early stage prostate cancer. Though this is one of the more common forms of cancer in men it is still generally rare.

Once you're done with your first appointment the doctor will send your blood to the lab for testing. Once the results come back you'll have to go in again and go over the results and discuss different forms of testosterone treatment. There are multiple methods of administering testosterone, including injections and transdermal methods such as creams, gels, and patches.

If you'd like to learn more about testosterone replacement therapy please fill out the form to the right or give us a call at 1-800-469-3343 and we'll make you your first appointment with one of our specializing physicians.
