Well, I was looking to do TRT. However my state is kind of a PITA about this. I tried looking at other places but a multitude of reasons I'm saying no....So I figured I'd order up my own blood draws. In any event, what blood tests should I be ordering? I'm guessing I could order --male hormone, CBC... But there's probably more. Help!!

Normally you would want to have the following tested: CMP, CBC, TSH, PSA, Estradiol, and Testosterone.

privatemdlabs.com

choose the female hormone panel with a lipid profile. When filling out the info, make sure you mark your proper sex. Don’t worry if you are a guy selecting a female panel. Doesn’t matter. Gives you what you need. Search online for discounts for privatemdlabs and make sure to choose Quest Diagnostics. LabCorp is way more expensive.

hope this helps.

Hey guys Thank you for the info, took my lab draw on Tuesday they told me it would take about a week. I'm kind of anxious to see what this all says. I ended up with like 11 panels! (from y'alls advice and some from other sources.)
Once again thank you

Where did you get your labs drawn and did insurance cover it?

I buy my lab orders from privatemdlabs.com
A few states prohibit this but the site will tell you. I pay for it with my health savings account and sometimes my GP orders them and insurance covers it. The female hormone panel was under $100 last time I checked.
