This Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) panel covers all important factors for first-timers (and experienced pros who want to dive deep).
It thoroughly analyzes key hormones like free and total testosterone & SHBG, as well as related relevant biomarkers like prolactin, estradiol & cortisol.
This panel provides deeper data on your liver, kidney & thyroid function, and will give you insight into your prostate health. It’s a great starting point for TRT, and a powerful tool for any man who’s interested in understanding the safety and efficacy of his treatment.
**This Testosterone test will provide exact levels of Total Testosterone results ranging from 0-9,999. However, any value greater than 9,999 will show >10,000 (over 10,000) as a result instead of the exact number.

You should fast for 12 hours before collection of the specimen. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverage other than water for at least 12 hours before testing. 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). Cortisol, Total assay not recommended when patient is on prednisone/prednisolone therapy due to cross reactivity with the antibody used in this assay. 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. Patient should be cautioned to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
Estimated turnaround for results is 7 business days. If confirmation testing is required, the estimated time may be extended.
