Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
Sex Hormone binding Globulin, Serum
Testosterone, Free (Direct) With Total Testosterone, LC/MS-MS
Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroxine Free (FT4), Direct
Tri-iodothyronine Free (FT3)
Note: Actual Total Testosterone levels will be provided with this test if levels exceed 1500.
Patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen. For accurate test results, no ejaculation during the 24 hours preceding the test. If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results. Some tests in this panel may exhibit interference when sample is collected from a person who is consuming a supplement with a high dose of biotin (also termed as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H or coenzyme R). It is recommended to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of specimen.
Estimated turnaround for results is 7 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.
