If you don't regularly see a doctor for checkups, you should. Theywould schedule routine labs for you to get a baseline. Lab testing only does so much but does offer some positives beyond the physical exam.Originally Posted by olb

It's good to get them every once in a while even if there's no steroids involved. With my health insurance it's free but even if you don't have any they aren't much more than hundred bucks.

Yes, they can be valuable on 2 levels:
1.) General guideline on how your health/endocrine system is being affected and once that's satisfied;
2.) Guideline as to where you need help with your supplement selection.
For example, after satisfying objective #1 above I ran a cortisol, testosterone/free T test. Knowing these #'s revealed that I could benefit from an ATD/ActivaTe stack. Otherwise, I might have wasted a lot of time and money on pursuing other area such as adaptogens, anti-cortisol products etc..
