If testosterone levels are expected to be >1500, it is best that you order a panel that includes Testosterone LC/MS-MS as the testosterone test included in this panel has a cutoff of 1500.Patient Instructions:
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.Categories: Hormones and Metabolism
