Testosterone Testing

Limitless Male Medical Clinic

Testing your testosterone levels is as simple as a lab draw.

At Limitless Male Medical Clinic, determining your testosterone levels requires a simple blood draw. Laboratory testing is essential to the diagnosis of low testosterone (or Low T), and it aids in the recommended course of treatment. Our diagnostic capabilities make us the preferred clinic for testosterone testing and Testosterone Replacement Therapy.

Should I visit Limitless Male Medical for Testosterone Testing?

Low testosterone affects men from 20’s – 80’s+. Many men think that their age makes them immune to Low T. Not true! The most common side effects of Low T are fatigue, weight gain, loss of libido, and loss of mental clarity. Learn more about the symptoms of low testosterone here. If you are experiencing constant fatigue no matter how much you sleep or are gaining weight you can’t seem to take off, you should consider Testosterone Testing.

What do you test for?

When you visit Limitless Male Medical Clinic for Testosterone Testing, we monitor for several factors in the bloodwork. We are not just testing for baseline blood levels, but also for what may appear to be “normal” levels holistically. Often times your standardized “normal” testosterone levels may indicate that some levels are lower than others, which may contribute to the symptoms you are experiencing. The appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of Low T require taking into account the following:

 

  • Total Testosterone
  • Free Testosterone
  • SHBG (Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin)
  • Estradiol (E2)
  • LH (Luteneizing Hormone)
  • FSH (Folicle Stimulating Hormone)
  • Thyroid Panel
  • CBC (Complete Blood Count)
  • Comprehensive Metabolism

What are you looking for?

We are taking a deeper look at your overall testosterone testing results, as well as your symptoms. We will meet to discuss your symptoms and your goals, and we’ll incorporate the determined plan, including Testosterone Replacement Therapy, if necessary. These are just a few things we are looking for:

 

  • Your total testosterone, the testosterone attached to the proteins in your blood, may be normal, but the free testosterone, the testosterone that is not bound to proteins and is, therefore, available to your body for use, may be low.
  • You may have normal testosterone levels but your Estradiol (estrogen) levels are elevated, which means your body is converting free testosterone into estrogen.
  • Excess weight gain can actually lead your body to convert testosterone into estrogen, therefore giving you more belly fat and causing the cycle to spiral out of control.
  • Having a history of head trauma can cause issues with your LH or FSH levels.
  • Cortisol levels can have physiological effects that can suppress your testosterone production. Let’s face it. Who doesn’t have stress as well as other traumas, which increase cortisol production?
