    Questions about Blood Work...


    Was looking for some advice regarding blood work issues. I've recently started a new TRT regimen per a new clinic and wanted some advice on blood work to get to ensure the efficacy and validity of the protocol I'm on. I'm also wanting to look into starting a new thyroid medication and could use help with that as well...

    My questions are as follows:

    1) Given the option should I contact the clinic and have them write the script for blood work or should I go through an internet company? If so can anyone recommend a reliable and cost effective source for blood work online?

    2) What tests specifically should I be requesting to evaluate my TRT protocol? Taking Test-Cyp, HCG, Anastrazole. I know total test, and free test, Estradiol etc (any specific test for E?) but anything else I need to look into? DHEA, SHBG etc?

    3) For thyroid panel what all should be included over TSH? Looking to switch from synthroid to Armour...

    4) I inject on a 3day rotation. Day 1 Test-Cyp, Day 2 AI, Day 3, HCG then repeat. I am assuming I would have blood drawn on the morning of Day 3. Would I have it drawn before or after my HCG injection for a true nadir point or should I have it drawn another day?

    Sorry for all the questions, but trying to do this right and not waste the last year or so as I've done with incompetent medical care. Thanks in advance for all the help.

    That looks like an incredibly comprehensive list for sure. Thanks for assembling that. Any idea on the best place to go about getting those tests and interpreting them?

    Depends on where you are located. We are not a referral system here but can point people in the right directions. I never give names of Dr's on here due to board rules. Pm's are not illegal.
