Our Male Panel measures data essential to a man’s health: complete blood count (CBC), chemistry panel (including cholesterol), prostate specific antigen (PSA), estradiol, DHEA, and both free and total testosterone. It also reports on markers like C-reactive protein, vitamin D, homocysteine, insulin and more.
This Panel now includes serum Ferritin (iron storage protein), a sensitive and specific indicator of iron status, critical to evaluating iron deficiency anemia and iron overload.
This panel contains the following tests:
This Male Panel is a comprehensive blood test that addresses cardiovascular health, hormone status, and general health.
This test may be done fasting or 2-6 hours after eating. Both ways provide valuable information, though 2-6 hours after a meal provides a more realistic assessment of the state of your blood in everyday life. Stay hydrated and take your medications as prescribed. If you are supplementing with any hormones, we suggest taking them approximately 2 hours prior to having your blood drawn to see peak levels. Hormones are best drawn between 8-10 AM. Activities stimulating to the prostate performed within 48 hours may elevate PSA (ejaculation, bike riding, heavy lifting, etc.).
