Blood Panels, The First Step of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Revived Vitality of Myrtle Beach offers affordable HRT blood panel options.

The first step and one of the most important aspects of proper hormone replacement therapy is the for a patient to undergo a diagnostic blood panel which determines the patient’s hormonal levels.  The results of the blood panel are compared to the symptoms the patient is experiencing to formulate a proper diagnosis.  In many cases our medical providers find that the blood labs mirror the symptoms for those patients that are eligible for hormone replacement therapy.

 

Our HRT blood panel tests all of the items which are critical to evaluate a potential Hormone Replacement Patient. The tests involved take focus on the hormones associated with a patient that is experiencing hormone deficiency. This panel varies from men and women and includes:

Frequently asked questions

How often do I need my blood levels tested?


On initial examination we test your levels, we check them again in 6-8 weeks, then every six months afterwards. This allows us to closely monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.




What is the difference between total testosterone and free testosterone?


As you might have guessed, total testosterone is all the testosterone in your body in any state, bound to SHBG or albumin. Free is what is on its own, what isn’t bound. Normally this is about two percent of all testosterone.




Now I am more confused.


Think of it this way. Free T and Total T is kind of like your body fat percentage and your weight. You might only weigh 175 pounds but if a third of that is body fat, you are probably not very healthy. The greater the free testosterone the greater the potential for greater results.
