Handheld T and E2 tester?


#1

I was thinking about this in the shower this morning....

It seems that TRT is such a new field, and folks haven't yet gotten it to the level of treatment that something like Diabetes is at. Wouldn't it be great if, like with Diabetes, you could carry a portable tester that could analyze 1 drop of your blood and give you your Testosterone and E2 levels at any time? That way you wouldn't always be speculating, you could tell what your levels are when you are feeling your best & worst, and you could modify your treatment with your doctor on the fly -- instead of waiting 4 weeks between visits and blood tests, etc?!

I'm wondering if any companies are working on this yet? Is this technology even possible?

If no, someone needs to start!

Cheers,

Funny, I was thinking the same thing a few weeks.

It's like we're living in the stone age with the testing that we have to endure. I'm going to ask my brother who is a molecular chemist for pharma companies if there's a reason this hasn't been designed yet.
