Due to ongoing exertion headaches, my chiro has requested my DR to a complete blood work up done…
I’m trying to kill two birds with one stone, and asked him to do hormone tests as well…
The below is what he has requested from the lab:
Is there anything else I should be looking at?
Other than the headaches, and a few niggling injuries, overall I feel great… going through a messy divorce, but stress levels are OK, diet average, but kinda perma bulking…
40 years old
Probably ideally about 95kg so a few kilo’s overweight…
Cheers for any advice, or comments…
For hormones, you should test SHBG, total testosterone, TSH, FT3, FT4.
Once those come back you can reevaluate and see if you need more testing. But those will give you a decent benchmark.
If money is not an object, you could go straight into the full pre-TRT panel which includes the stuff I already mentioned as well as
Add to the list:
If you want a full iron panel
Full thyroid panel
Here’s what I got done last time that you can look through
Awesome, thanks guys. I’ve moved houses and changed doctors, so need to go back and get my previous results, as my Dr kept them in his files.
As I’ve got a new Dr now, I’m keen to get as complete a picture as I can, not that I’m experiencing any particular problems, just to get a complete picture.
Drs in Australia seem to either play dumb, or don’t seem to be experienced in TRT, so I seem to need to prompt him as to what tests I’m after.
Thanks again for your input guys, I’ll post the results once I’ve received them, and I’ll be keen for your input on the results.
