Do you want to know how to check your testosterone levels? The answer is pretty simple: testing. Otherwise, any and all care you receive is just guess-work
So, the first step in treating low T with The Edge at Pinnacle Point is identifying the root cause of the condition. This process begins with a physical exam and a thorough review of the patient’s medical history.
Once we have an understanding of the patient’s symptoms and medical history, they will typically order lab tests to assess your hormonal profile.
It’s worth mentioning: there’s no safe way to check your levels without professional testing and examination. So, there’s nothing you can (or should) do at home to get tested. That’s where The Edge comes in!
How To Check Testosterone Levels at The Edge
There are several lab tests that we use, as a low T center in Rogers, to identify your testosterone levels and diagnose low T. These tests can include:
This test measures the total amount of testosterone in the bloodstream. Pretty straightforward, we know.
This test measures the amount of testosterone that is not bound to proteins in the bloodstream and is available for use by the body.
Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG)
This test measures the amount of SHBG in the bloodstream, which can affect the amount of free testosterone available to the body.
This test measures the amount of estradiol, a form of estrogen, in the bloodstream. Estradiol levels can affect testosterone levels and may need to be addressed as part of a low T treatment plan.
Luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
These tests measure the levels of LH and FSH in the bloodstream, which can help determine whether the low T is caused by a problem with the testicles or the pituitary gland.
Once the lab results are available, The Edge’s team of experts can develop a customized treatment plan for each client. The treatment plan may include testosterone replacement therapy, lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments, and exercise routines, among other things.
By using lab work to understand each client’s hormonal profile, The Edge can develop a treatment plan that addresses the root cause of the low T and helps clients achieve maximum results.
