Home Testosterone Test Kits?


What are everyone's thoughts on those home testosterone kits that you can get on Amazon etc? I've been lifting for a few years and never had a test to see what my levels were at. Is this something my family doctor could administer or do you need to see a specialist?


I've gotten my test levels checked during my yearly blood work at my physician's office. It was covered by my insurance so no extra cost.


did they do a full hormonal work-up or just one or two?


Just a couple, I was hoping my doc would figure out what I was talking about when I asked for stuff but I guess he didn't. He can be clueless when it comes to some things. I know basic test and free test are usually covered (which my shitty insurance did cover), but I'm not sure about the rest.
