Even “normal” testosterone may be lower than ideal.
Yes, “Low T” can affect your sex drive and cause erectile dysfunction. But it is also associated with many other conditions:
Note: If you have Type 2 diabetes, are overweight or survive on less sleep than you should, you are higher risk for Low T.
Furthermore, within the “normal range,” higher is better. AND, you can actually raise your testosterone naturally.* When you do, it feels really good. But how do you know where you stand? If you want to ask your doctor for the test, go for it. Or just come to us. It’s fast, easy, confidential, and you don’t need a doctor’s order. It’s cheaper too, especially this month.
If you suspect “Low T,” you might consider our Optimum Testosterone, which may provide some additional clues as it includes a few more tests. Our discounted price is normally $299, and this month it’s $239.
Tip: Total T is the number most talk about, but Free T is the testosterone that is available to your body. Pay attention to that number. Your results will include a reference range of what is considered “normal.” Labcorp’s reference range is 348 – 1197 for total testosterone. Within that range, 900 is better than 500. 1200 is too high.
As with all of our tests, results are confidential and shared only with you.
If you want to come to our Morton Grove clinic, great. If that’s inconvenient, we can take your order online and you can have your blood drawn at a testing center near you. Please call with any questions.
And, ladies, if your guy seems like he’s dragging a bit, it’s worth encouraging the test. His life could depend on it. And feel free to check out our Women’s Health tests.
*You can do the research yourself, but, in general, men can increase their testosterone by getting 8-9 hours of quality sleep per night, including healthy fats in the diet, avoiding sugar and any carb that is white or can be white, and by intense strength training (think high weight, 2-4 reps). Of course, like weight loss, if it were easy, everyone would do it! Please also note that InOut Labs does not provide medical advice. If your results are out of range, you will be advised to see a doctor.
