I’ve never had bloodwork done. 30 y/o Male, 6’3 176lbs.
Looking to find out for a few reasons if my testosterone is low and also some general health testing would be good. I don’t have any insurance that would help with cover these costs. I’ve decided to go thru health tests direct and order my blood tests myself to save money and save on wasting a doctor’s visit. This way I can get results and then go to a doctor to possibly get on TRT if needed.
With that being said, are these blood tests I’m about to order indeed the correct tests that I would need? Here is a link to the site I’m using to order “https://www.health-tests-direct.com/”
Here is the tests themselves.

The E2 test is their ultra sensitive. One person told me it’s what I needed and another I’ve read that it isnt. There is no normal “sensitive” version, only ultra sensitive or not sensitive at all. Also are these the necessary Thyroid components to be tested?
I’ve also read that certain Testosterone tests are better than others at Quest though it was an old post. Not sure how true that is. The Testosterone “test” the anti aging male “package/test” uses is the "36170 Testosterone, Free and Total, LC/MS/MS ". Hope that one is correct.
