I have a physical coming up soon and wanted to get my T checked along with whatever blood work is done for the general health panel they do. I'm 19 and don't suspect I have low T or anything like that but just wanted to see what it was. Im 99% certain that this test will NOT be covered by my insurance so I was wondering what the most cost effective way of doing this would be.
If I'm gonna test my T would it also make sense to test estradiol? Reading around it seems as though a highish T level doesn't matter unless E2 is in check.
I have a family history of thyroid issues and didn't know if it would be worth getting the tests done if I'm not showing any symptoms of anything being wrong with this. Wouldn't my T reflect hypo/hyperthyroidism? Or am I stupid for even thinking this?
I found www.anylabtestnow.com and it seems like a somewhat affordable way to get the tests done? Anyone have any experience with them?
