    chem 20
    kidney, liver values
    To get all those you have to spend a LOT more.

    I just recently had my bloods done. I wanted all the above levels included as well. Ended up getting the "anabolic steroid test panel" plus adding the progesterone and prolactin...total came up to about $350 with the coupon -ouch.

    My levels looked good...except my freakin testosterone. Something knocked it WAY down (409). And my free test was very low. This is shocking because I've always had high natural T levels. Never done any cycles.

    My IGF-1 level was almost maxed out...interestng.

    Thank you! I paid $500 for my blood work through my doctor a year ago. What a rip off!

    If I do have insurance, but haven't gotten my physician to refer me, will my insurance still cover it?

    As a licensed health insurance agent, the best answer I have for you is:

    Maybe.

    Depends on your policy/carrier/state/location you have the test done/etc....

    Doing the above would be your best bet, and it keeps it off your insurance history. I will be looking into getting my pre-cycle bloodwork done here shortly.
    Just inject.

    Im looking at doing this and i was wondering if its not an issue that the female panel does not include free test, only serum test. Also, i think i am having cortisol issues, but i know that cortisol varies greatly during the day, is there a test i should add on to the female panel?

    Cheers

    Honestly, it is what you are willing to spend. If money isn't an issue, you can go for the full male test.

    Do you choose female test over male due to price difference or are there specific things to look for?

    Price is much cheaper. I did the female hormone and lipids with discount codes for 90 dollars.

    Awesome!! I always get old doctors for check ups that just blow me off when i ask for testosterone check, even after i tell them i used PH's. now i can finally see if that dumbass superdrol wirh no pct messed me up or not. Why is it that regular doctors only care about bp and cholesterol? Maybe a sports doctor would understand more and check other things?

    thank you.
    only thing is... when u go on the website to schedule the bloodwork
    even though you can choose the out of state location... it then prompts you to enter your current address/billing address,etc.
    which is NJ.... ugh.

    but i will keep everyone posted ... i will know if its possible because im shooting for sat march 26

    What if you have a PCP and health insurance? Is there any way to get your doctor to test your hormones without paying out of the ass for it? Like, should you make up or exaggerate some symptoms so he can tell your insurance that they should pay for the tests?

    im gonna be getting my blood tested as a reference before i start my cycle but i was wondering how important getting my LH levels tested are?

    i was planning on just getting the male hormone panel so i could see my free AND total test but it doesnt include LH. on the other hand the female hormone panel includes LH but not free test.

    so basically which panel would be better to use as a reference before my cycle?

    this would work. you can simply say your libido is down, your feeling tired, taking alot of naps, no sex drive, no morning wood, etc.
    and they will test you... for free/insurance.

    BUT.. this is not private, and gets reported to insurance/goes on your medical records.

    the other option mentioned in this article.. is completely private. and does not go on your medical records.. and only cost 50 bucks with coupon.
    cant go wrong with this option bro... i will be doing it myself this saturday.
    you also dont have to wait 2 weeks for a follow up appointment with the doctor... with labcorp it gets emailed to you within 24-48 hrs. no need to visit the doctor again and this is stupid fast.

    you can also get your blood work done even once a month if youd like with this option..or as frequently as you have to.

    try that with the doctor... lol.

    I would also suggest anylabtestnow website and see if there is one near you. I know they are in a few major cities. Prices are reasonable. Only I have ever gotten with them is Cholesterol and Thyroid testing so TSH, T3 and T4. Both were $49 each.

    Just used labcorp this morning to get my baseline levels before i start a cycle. I used the 'female hormone panel' and it worked like charm. I just walked in, handed them the form(they asked for insurance but i told em no), it took them literally 5 minutes to draw the blood(2 viles) and i was done. Should be getting the results in 1-2 days.

    *** UPDATE 03-30-11 ***

    for the NY/NJ/RI guys ... this will work for you!
    you can purchase your bloodwork on privatemd anddd use your legit billing address...
    but you will have to choose a labcorp out of your state.
    even if you have to drive out 45-60 minutes this is totally worth it.
    soo cheap.. and such a quick service.

    here is what i did:

    Friday night - purchased bloodwork on privateMD using my NJ billing address
    Friday night- went on labcorp's website and scheduled appointment for next morning

    saturday- drove out to PA, went into labcorp.. no id, no insurance, no nothing!
    just gave my name, chick drew my blood, and i was out of there in 5 minutes!

    sunday- got the results via email in less then 24 hrs! yesss on a sunday!
    not even a business day... lol.. this is awesome.

    all this for 50 bucks!?? come on..you cant beat this guys... so cheap, so convenient, private, andd quick!
    so go get your blood work done...
    whether its pre-cycle, during cycle, post cycle.. or just to check on yourself.. do it.

    goodluck,

    thats very unusual ..there usually super quick.
    i got mine done saturday morning, and got the results emailed to me
    sunday around noon--- yeap about 24 hrs later.

    maybe your labcorp is being lazy...lol
    give it another day or two.. if not, call privatemd and have them check on it for you

    I had labcorp do a total/free test today, and was told 1-2 days as well. Does it ALWAYS take 5 days or so if you want FREE test done?

    Question about fasting, I know that a fast is required for a CMP to get accurate blood glucose results, but I don't think that result is important here, so is there any other reason to fast? I'm starving and I have to ride my bicycle 10 miles to get the test so I would strongly prefer to be able to eat.
