Anabolic Steroid Panel  (LabCorp)

Same day lab order delivery

HSA/FSA reimbursable
Please Note: If this panel is ordered by a female, due to ordering restrictions on certain tests, the PSA test will not be included on the requisition and will not be performed.
Our anabolic steroid test panel can be used as an initial screen to determine if anti-aging treatment with bioidentical hormone replacement is needed and to monitor safety during ongoing treatment.

The panel includes the following tests:

- Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
- Complete Blood Count (CBC) w/ Differential
- Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP) (includes eGFR)
- Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA),
- Estradiol
- Testosterone (Free) , Serum (Equilibrium Ultrafiltration) With Total Testosterone
- Lipid Panel
- Insulin Growth Factor (IGF-1)
- Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, Serum

Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.

Note: If total testosterone levels are greater than the cutoff for this test (>1500), results for free testosterone and/or percent free testosterone may not be provided. If total testosterone results are expected to be >1500 it is best that the LC/MS-MS version of this test be ordered.
- Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), serum
- Complete Blood Count (CBC) w/ Differential
: 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; red cell count; white blood cell count
- Comprehensive Metabolic Profile (CMP) (includes eGFR): A:G ratio; albumin, serum; alkaline phosphatase, serum; ALT (SGPT); AST (SGOT); bilirubin, total; BUN; BUN:creatinine ratio; calcium, serum; carbon dioxide, total; chloride, serum; creatinine, serum; globulin, total; glucose, serum; potassium, serum; protein, total, serum; sodium, serum
- Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
- Estradiol
- Testosterone (Free), Serum (Equilibrium Ultrafiltration) With Total Testosterone
- Lipid Panel
: Cholesterol, total; high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (calculation); triglycerides; very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol (calculation).
- Insulin Growth Factor (IGF-1)
- Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

If total testosterone levels are greater than the cutoff for this test (>1500), results for free testosterone and/or percent free testosterone may not be provided.
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. This test 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 10 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.

What is an Anabolic Steroid Panel?

An Anabolic Steroid Panel is used as an initial screen on patients to determine if anti-aging treatment with bioidentical hormone replacement is needed, as well as to monitor a patient’s progress during ongoing treatment. A female ordering this panel should not expect to have a PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test performed since this particular test only applies to male patients. However, the other portions of the test are useful for determining the overall health status of a patient, as well as the levels of specific hormones associated with early or general aging.

Who May Need an Anabolic Steroid Panel?

Anabolic androgenic steroids are derived from testosterone, a male hormone present in both men and women. These steroids facilitate the building of muscle, making bones stronger, lowering body fat and increasing a person’s endurance. Patients who have received anabolic steroid therapy, either recreationally or medically, in the past may have a decrease in the normal production of this hormone. Additionally, lower levels of testosterone in men, and increases in women, are common during the aging process, and can typically be diagnosed and treated in most cases in order to provide anti-aging benefits, including the prevention of diseases associated with abnormal levels.

What Should I Expect from My Anabolic Steroid Panel?

The Anabolic Steroid Panel is taken through a blood sample which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Typically, patients who show increased levels of testosterone are considered at greater risk for heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, liver disease and cancer, hair loss, and reduced sperm count (infertility); women specifically may exhibit male characteristics such as increased body hair, a lowered voice, smaller breasts and rough skin. Normal values vary from lab to lab, making it important to discuss your results with your doctor to determine how they concern you and your health specifically.

FAQ

  1. What is an anabolic steroid panel?

    An Anabolic Steroid Panel is an important pre-screening test to evaluate possible imbalances in testosterone and other sex hormones. This might help explain:

    • Premature aging in patients
    • Low testosterone production
    • Muscle growth and development alterations
  2. What are the benefits of testing for anabolic blood steroids?

    Blood anabolic hormone testing can help identify irregularities in naturally occurring hormones that may interfere with optimal health. The results can:

    • Help athletes monitor the effectiveness of their training programs
    • Determine if you are getting what you need from your diet and exercise routine
    • Identify hormone imbalances that need to be corrected with hormone therapy (HRT)
  3. Who may need an anabolic steroid panel?

    Patients who have received anabolic steroid therapy or are in treatment can have this testing done to check their current hormone levels. Older men or women may also benefit from this panel, as testosterone imbalances are common during aging. Imbalances may:

    • Impair the muscle-building process
    • Weaken bones
    • Increase body fat
    • Reduce fitness endurance
  4. What should I expect from my anabolic steroid panel?

    This test is taken through a blood sample which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Typically, patients who show decreased levels of testosterone have a greater risk for:

    • Osteoporosis (weakening of bones)
    • Low sex drive
    • Changes in blood pressure
    • Changes in hair growth patterns
    • Reduced sperm count (infertility)
    • Lowered voice or skin texture changes in women
  5. Do I need to visit a doctor?

    Nope. You don't need a doctor's visit to get a test with us.

  6. How do I get my results?
