What is a Wellness Test for Men?
A Wellness Test for Men is a series of tests used to assess the general wellness of male patients, as well as to diagnose any conditions which may be present. Today, almost a third of men do not have a primary care physician, which makes it imperative to have these tests performed regularly to promote optimal health in male patients. Our tests in particular check males for a number of wellness factors, including kidney and liver function, prostate-related health, cholesterol, testosterone, and thyroid function depending on the checkup selected.
Who May Need a Wellness Test for Men?
Wellness Tests for Men are ideal for any male patient who is concerned about their physical health and well-being. Some physicians may begin to prescribe these types of tests for their patients beginning in their 30's, though the frequency of these tests will increase as a male ages, particularly when a male reaches the age of 50. However, male patients whose family or personal history includes issues with heart health or cholesterol, prostate problems, abnormal kidney or liver function, and thyroid problems may be asked by their doctor to have these tests performed early and often.
What Should I Expect from My Wellness Test for Men?
Wellness Tests for Men begin with a blood sample being drawn from the patient, and commonly a urine sample, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Preparation for these tests includes fasting for 12-14 hours, as well as avoiding ejaculation 24 hours preceding the test. Patients who are undergoing testosterone replacement therapy should also avoid using any testosterone creams or other medications on the antecubital area of their arm for the last 24 hours prior to the test, as it can give elevated results. In addition, some tests also require males to supply a urine specimen in order for it to be examined by the lab. Reference ranges for these tests will be supplied by the laboratory; however, they should be discussed at length with your doctor if an abnormality exists, as your doctor may have a range for certain tests built specifically around your health as an individual.
