    What tests should i get?


    I am going to see my Endo again, and wondering what tests I should request?
    I have had tests for thyroid, but not much else.
    What would be a good overall set of tests, for adrenals, test, ect.

    Any long ester will do... Test E,C or D.

    I've tried them all and notice no difference.

    LOL...

    Thought this said "What Test should I get". Was it edited? LOL

    I usually get
    Testosterone Free and Total
    LH
    PSA
    Estrogen/E2

    Cholesterol levels wouldnt hurt either.

    I prefer blood spot kits from zrtlab.com

    They have saliva also..but blood spot tests are more accurate.

    I recommend you let your endocrinologist be the doctor and order what he feels appropriate.

    If you feel he is so incapable of treating your properly that it requires you assist him then I would suggest you find another doctor.

    Otherwise let the doctor play doctor and you play the patient
