You may need this test to find out whether a low sex drive is caused by a low level of testosterone. In recent years, healthcare providers have used testosterone therapy to treat both men and women with low sex drives.
Men with low levels of testosterone (hypogonadism) may have:
- Loss of sex drive
- Low energy
- Bone loss
The test is also done for men with andropause, or late-onset hypogonadism. This is a condition caused by decreased testosterone. Men with this condition may have:
- Decreased bone density
- Lack of energy or fatigue
- Loss of muscle mass
- Poor concentration
- Erectile dysfunction or inability to have an orgasm
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
The PSA test can detect high levels of PSA that may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. However, many other conditions, such as an enlarged or inflamed prostate, can also increase PSA levels. Therefore, determining what a high PSA score means can be complicated.
Therefore tracking it overtime helps assist your baseline and assists in detecting deviations from your personal normal.
Vitamin D helps keep your bones healthy and strong! It forms in the body when the sun is absorbed by your skin. Don’t fret – vitamin D deficiency is very common and can be fixed, but low levels can cause things like fatigue and sleep issues.
Lab Me doesn’t use traditional dry blood spot cards like our competitors. We use a patented blood collection system that is FDA approved. It separates blood from plasma allowing us to have low variability and virtually identical results to arm drawn blood.
Regular testing of biomarkers can act as an early detection system. Especially if you’re not getting enough sleep, have improper nutrition, substandard training, unwise lifestyle choices or weak bone health. Lab Me helps by detecting non-optimal levels of blood biomarkers . For example high levels of cortisol which is an indicator of stress.
We use lab’s that are the same labs used by hospitals, major corporations, medical clinics and private doctors. They are CAP and CLIA certified and undergo regular audits and daily calibrations.
