    Use one of those fit bits, gearFits for a ruff sleep study on ur own and if it looks terrible go for a real test. I got a gearfit 2nd hand of ebay for $90 and its showing i sleep better then i thought. 86% efficiency or higher. Watches how active u r and does heaps of other stuff.

    The nurse is not allowed to add anything to the path form. No there was no testo test ordered.
    If anyone having probs with Dr not ordering what you want, you can get done privately. Just have to pay for it. Absolutely better if gp will come to the party though. Try these guys . From memory it was just $80 or something for stand alone total testosterone test.

    Random question
    .... If they test for estro and it comes back as estro is high....what do dr do if there isnt any medication that can be legally precribed for men with high levels. From what i know the ai's like arimidex and letro are only availible to be prescribed to women.

    Curious, once on your medical record that you have aas use. Does this affect things such as income protection, life insurance, sickness and accident?

    i recently paid 130$ for my recent bloods on i-screen.
    i had a full male hormones test and my oestradial came back high at 167pmol/L (range 50-150) and i also had elevated LH @ 9U/L. free test was 272pmol/L
    in the opinion of the GP that accessed my blood test online, my estro is too high and needs looking at. and given my physical and mental health problems in recent years, i went to a local GP to discuss this and was pretty much laughed, scoffed and "pfftdd!" at by him. i practically had to beg and plead with him to do a second test request for me and managed to get him to add DHT, LH, FSH and thyroid on to the test.

    if you're a man and you are having health problems that may involve something hormonal, you're shit out of luck in this town. even more so if you are poor. it's really frustrating get any GP to listen to you.

    i want to go on TRT dose of test to try and see of i can get any benefits of wellbeing but f-ck me, i don't know if i can handle the stress and drama of having to deal with GP's with frequent blood work required and especially if it's self administered i don't think there'd be many who will assist you with anything for that.

    Yep, can be frustrating in this regard . there are a couple of places to organise your own bloods. Most use imedical .
    Get the real lab reports with them, not a version of them.
    But I hear you. I just wanted the numbers without feeling like I was asking to borrow the GP's Maserati instead of just a blood test.
