Male Basic Hormone Panel
Item Catalog Number: LC100012
This panel contains the most essential hormones a man should have tested. Each one is critical to supporting optimal health. Life Extension has written extensively on the numerous disease states associated with low levels of DHEA and testosterone and their critical importance in promoting healthy aging.
DHEA and Testosterone, especially free testosterone, can significantly decline with aging, while PSA and estrogen may rise.
Also, whenever doing hormone replacement therapy it is important to carefully monitor your hormone levels. Before attempting to restore DHEA to youthful levels, men should know their serum PSA (prostate specific antigen) level. Men should also periodically check their blood levels for free testosterone and estrogen to make sure that DHEA is following a youthful metabolic pathway.
The Male Basic Hormone Panel includes:
- Estradiol (an estrogen)
- Free and Total Testosterone
Fasting is not required. Take all prescription medications as prescribed.
