Order the Advanced Male Hormone Test from Invigor Medical to see if you qualify for testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). The Advanced Male Hormone Test not only provides information about your homrones, but insight on a number of other potential issues that might be contributing to symptoms you may have. After your blood test order has been placed, our staff will schedule a time to go into one of our partnered labs to get your blood drawn. Check the map below to see which states we currently offer TRT to.
We use blood testing centers instead of at-home tests due to the larger variety of tests available. At-home tests aren’t capable of testing some of the indicators we need to offer the best service to our patients. These tests allow our doctors to perform a more complete assessment.

What is Measured?

Testosterone Total

Testosterone testing is used to evaluate androgen excess or deficiency related to gonadal function, adrenal function, or tumor activity. Testosterone levels may be helpful in men for the diagnosis of hypogonadism, hypopituitarism, Klinefelter syndrome, and impotence (low values). Testosterone levels may be requested in women to investigate the cause of hirsutism, anovulation, amenorrhea, virilization, masculinizing tumors of the ovary, tumors of the adrenal cortices, and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (high values). Testosterone levels in children may be helpful to investigate issues related to puberty and development as well as the aforementioned. For testosterone measurements in females and children, use of Testosterone, Total, Women, Children, and Hypogonadal Males, LC/MS-MS [070001], which employs liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS-MS), is recommended.


Complete Blood Count (CBC)

Hematocrit; hemoglobin; mean corpuscular volume (MCV); mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH); mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC); red cell distribution width (RDW); percentage and absolute differential counts; platelet count (RBC); red cell count; white blood cell count (WBC)


Complete Metabolic Panel (CMP)

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT); albumin:globulin (A:G) ratio; albumin, serum; alkaline phosphatase, serum; aspartate aminotransferase (AST/SGOT); bilirubin, total; BUN; BUN:creatinine ratio; calcium, serum; carbon dioxide, total; chloride, serum; creatinine, serum; eGFR calculation; globulin, total; glucose, serum; potassium, serum; protein, total, serum; sodium, serum


Lipid Panel

Abbreviations used are as follows: HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; VLDL-C, very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Evaluation of hyperlipidemia as an index to coronary artery disease. Investigation of serum lipids is indicated in those with coronary and other arterial disease, especially when it is premature, and in those with family history of atherosclerosis or of hyperlipidemia.The patient with high cholesterol (>240 mg/dL) should have a lipid panel. Patients with cholesterol levels between 200−240 mg/dL plus two other coronary heart disease risk factors should also have a lipid panel.


Estrogen

Evaluate for ovarian estrogen producing tumor in the premenarcheal and postmenopausal female; evaluate estrogen excess in males. Estrogen analysis may be helpful in establishing time of ovulation and optimal time for conception. Serial samples must be collected over several days to evaluate baseline and peak total estrogen levels.


Prostate-specific Antigen (PSA)

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein produced by the epithelial cells lining the prostatic ducts and acini. Normally, it is secreted into the prostatic ducts and is present only in prostate tissue, prostatic fluid, and seminal plasma. PSA is produced by normal, hyperplastic, and cancerous prostatic tissue. PSA is used as a tumor marker for the early detection of prostate cancer and in other areas of prostate disease management.1 The Prostate-Specific Antigen Best Practice Statement: 2009 Update published by the American Urologic Association1 describes the use of PSA testing for:
• The evaluation of men at risk for prostate cancer
• Assistance in pretreatment staging
• Risk assessment posttreatment monitoring
• Use as a guide in management of men who recur after primary or secondary therapy


Thyroid (T3, T4, TSH)

Thyroid Details
•T3 (Evaluate thyroid function and assess abnormal binding protein disorders)
•T4 (Free T4 may be indicated when binding globulin (TBG) problems are perceived, or when conventional test results seem inconsistent with clinical observations. It is normal in subjects with high thyroxine-binding globulin hormone binding who are euthyroid (ie, free thyroxine should be normal in nonthyroidal diseases). It should be normal in familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia.)
•TSH (Thyroid function test. Investigation of low thyroxine (T4) result; the differential diagnosis of primary hypothyroidism from normal, and the differential diagnosis of primary hypothyroidism from pituitary/hypothalamic hypothyroidism. TSH is high in primary hypothyroidism. Low TSH occurs in hyperthyroidism. Evaluation of therapy in hypothyroid patients receiving various thyroid hormone preparations: Low values are found in states of excessive thyroid replacement. Normal result on a sensitive TSH assay is acceptable evidence of adequate thyroid replacement.
Follow-up of patients who have had hyperthyroidism treated with radioiodine or surgery. Follow-up low T4 newborn results.
This third-generation TSH assay can be considered a test for thyroid disease. A result within the accepted reference interval provides strong evidence for euthyroidism.)


Iron

Aid in the evaluation of a number of conditions involving red cell production and destruction, iron metabolism, or iron transport


Vitamin D3

25-Hydroxy vitamin D is used to measure vitamin D status; it includes results for total 25-hydroxy vitamin D2 and 25-hydroxy vitamin D3. This 25-hydroxy vitamin D assay and the alternative immunoassay test (Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy [081950]) are both CDC-certified for accuracy.


Luteinizing Hormone(LH)

The primary clinical use of LH measurement is in evaluating the normalcy of hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Measurement of serum gonadotropin levels will allow for distinguishing between primary gonadal failure and deficient gonadal stimulation. LH measurement may also be of clinical importance because growth hormone and LH are frequently the first hormones to be affected by pituitary disease.

Do I Need To Fast Before I Go?
To receive accurate results you must fast for a minimum of 8 HOURS before the blood draw. If you do not fast, test results may have some innacuracies.
How Much Water do I Drink?
Don’t drink an excess of water prior to your blood draw. Make sure that you are hydrated but not consuming more water than usual.
Biotin and Blood Work
Biotin may affect blood test results. Please do not take biotin supplements before you get your blood draw. Also, it is important to talk to our medical staff about the medications you are currently taking (including supplements and other over-the-counter medications).
When should patients be drawn for testosterone testing?
Research suggests that the initial diagnostic test is a total testosterone level collected between 8:00 AM and noon, measured using a reliable lab. In addition, the Endocrine Society recommends confirmation of a testosterone deficiency in men by repeating measurment of total testosterone after an interval of at least 3 months.
