Quest Lab Code for Progesterone?


#1

Quest has about 5 different Progesterone labs--does anyone know which one of these is the one most applicable to men with hormone deficiency? The main one seems to be a <1.4 range, which isn't really useful IMO since the test is rarely insensitive

Here is the quest code website:

No clue about Quest.

The test that was done for me gives a range of 0.3-1.0 for men (my result was 1.0 ng/mL, right at the top range). The performing lab was ARUP Laboratories' progesterone test. See here: http://www.aruplab.com/guides/ug/tests/0070110.jsp
