Hormone Blood Test - Script Needed?

Alright, so I’m not sure if this topic belongs in this section, but I thought you guys would know the most about it.

For Christmas I wanted to get my father a blood test to encourage him to get on TRT. He’s a former athlete (3 time All-American in college basketball. Had a brief stint in the NBA as well). And he’s been lagging lately in his lifting - getting very discouraged with his results.

Anyways, I was wondering if I could just schedule him an appointment and give him the date. Along with that, I would like to test my own, just for fun to compare with him. Are both of us going to need prescriptions from Doctors or could I just call in and schedule times for both of us?

Thanks in advance.

In California, you can’t order your own tests. You need to have a doctor order the tests. That being said, you can order the tests from the Life Extension Foundation as their tests are “authorized” by a doctor.
