Testosterone test: Urine vs Blood PLEASE HELP!

  1. Testosterone test: Urine vs Blood PLEASE HELP!


    I got 2 tests back for my testosterone, one blood test and one urine test.

    My urine test showed that my testosterone was in the (low)mid range.

    However, the blood tests showed that my testosterone serum and free were both off the charts high. (serum at 1500)

    I still suffer from severe ED and lack of libido... what is the more accurate test. can the descrepency tell me anything about what is wrong?

    Of note, my estrogen is at 33 (range 13-54)

    Can anyone tell me more about urine vs blood testing?


  2. bump.............

  3. no one knows?

  4. I'm pretty sure the blood test is far more accurate..but the difference between those two is odd. I'm not an expert though

    One needs to compare blood to urine because some people are hyperexecreters of testosteorne. I have seen people go from 800 down to 350 over a 12-14 hour window. One needs to compare symptoms to the 2 tests. I am seeing this trend happen in DHEA urine. People are normal in the serum but are deficeint in the urine. When replaced with TD DHEA which increases urinary dhea metabolite symptoms resolve over time.
