Before starting any Hormone Replacement Therapy regimen a baseline of certain laboratory tests are recommended. It is also important to have regular lab testing to ensure the prescribed therapy is working as intended. Hormone Therapy programs vary by prescriber as well as the recommended lab tests for baseline assessment and monitoring. The lab tests listed on this page are the tests that are most popular with body builders.
Why do bodybuilders need to get tested?
Blood tests help bodybuilders understand their health and fitness levels to tailor training for result maximization. These may also be useful for finding any underlying health disorders that could affect a bodybuilder's performance. For example, a low red blood cell count may cause fatigue, while a high one can lead to blood clots.
How often do bodybuilders need to be tested?
Ideally, blood tests are required monthly to ensure that the bodybuilder’s health and fitness levels are within safe limits.
What are the most important blood tests for bodybuilders?
The most important blood tests for bodybuilders are:
- Testosterone free and total
- Complete Blood Count (CBC)
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)
- Prostate-Specific Antigen
- Thyroid profile
- Lipid profile
Together, these tests can provide great information on the overall health of the bodybuilder and monitor hormone replacement therapy if it's needed.
How to read estradiol blood test results?
An adult male should have an estradiol level of 10–40 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL) and an estrone level of 10–50 pg/ml. If your results are outside of the normal reference ranges, you should seek guidance from a physician.
Why is it important to include an estradiol blood test?
Even though estradiol is a female sex hormone, both men and women produce it. An imbalance of estradiol in men can help detect a relative estrogen excess due to a testosterone or androgen deficiency.
Why is it important to include an IGF-1 blood test?
IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor) is a hormone produced by the liver that regulates muscle development, protein metabolism, and bone growth. IGF-1 is linked to inflammation and insulin resistance, increasing diabetes and heart disease risk.
