Please pay attention to references to thyroid issues in the stickies as many of the symptoms of low-T are the same as low thyroid function. Expect problems if you have not been using iodized salt.
If you are a member at LEF.com, they also sell Labcorp blood testing. DIY labs are always pay out-of-pocket and you cannot run through your insurance. Available in most, but not all, USA States.
If you go through a doctor, you may not get all of the suggest labs done or if you do, the costs could be quite high.
Do not have high expectations about finding a regular doc who understands diagnostics and treatment. Endocrinologists can be idiots and urologists are typically narrow minded and clueless. The problem is the doctors.
