Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) August 12, 2013 - Testosterone is a critical male hormone that is required for men to maintain bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, sex drive and sperm production. As men age, testosterone levels drop off, usually 1% a year after age 30, sometimes to a very low level causing symptoms such as low energy, low sex drive, physical changes and insomnia. Low testosterone levels are now commonly referred to as “Low T.” A simple testosterone lab test is an easy first step.
Testosterone therapy can help if a man’s body is not producing a sufficient amount of the hormone, providing increased energy, increased muscle strength and boosting his libido. But testosterone therapy is not right for everyone and low hormone levels may not be the cause of a person’s lack of energy or sex drive. Physician guidance is required.
If a man is considering testosterone therapy, he and his doctor need to know if he may have underlying conditions that might make testosterone therapy dangerous. High PSA levels, abnormal blood counts or sleep apnea may make you ineligible for testosterone therapy. ANY LAB TEST NOW’s Pre-Testosterone Therapy Panelis suggested for those considering treatment. “ANY LAB TEST NOW understands that the stigma of “Low T” may be an uncomfortable topic to discuss. Our goal is to support physician recommendations, while providing affordable lab testing solutions, especially for those who want to undergo testosterone therapy and may be uninsured, will be paying with their Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA), or in some cases, the cost for treatment and the required lab testing may not be covered by their insurance and become an out-of-pocket expense,” stated Mack Rassoulian, Clinical Expert for ANY LAB TEST NOW. "We want to ensure our customers have a way to follow through with the tests they need, in a quick and comfortable environment.”
Once a person begins testosterone therapy, their physician will require periodic lab testing to monitor his or her patient’s hormone levels. The Continued Testosterone Therapy Panelconsists of a series of lab tests appropriate for this purpose to track the effectiveness of the treatment.
