Bodybuilder and Sports Hormone Blood Testing
Sports Hormone Blood Testing is a great way to understand what's going on inside your body and understanding the impacts of training, PEDs and supplements so you can reach your goals while monitoring your health. Specifically designed for Bodybuilders and Athletes.
iMedical provides 'uncapped' total Testosterone results. This means if the total T levels are high the results wont be reported/limited at >52 pmol/l, but the actual number no matter how high.
Privacy. Due to no Medicare number being involved your results wont be aligned to your M/C episodes or records. This also means no results will be provided to any other Dr or Clinic if they call the lab to ask for them. The Labs ask Drs to call imedical, we then contact you and ask for your consent to provide, if not then so be it.
Additionally, because no alignment with Medicare episodes 'cumulative results' (previous results history) wont be automatically included in your personal GP results print outs.
iMedical also offer Mass-Spec E2 testing. This is performed by Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC-MS). This is actual Mass-Spec (LCMS) testing, not 'sensitive E2' as offered by some Companies.
LCMS is regarded as the Gold standard in testing. It is usually used to investigate very low levels of E2. It is also useful in testing E2 when certain medications or steroids are used (such as Aromasin and Trenbolone). These compounds can give an interference with the normal ELISA Immunoassay. Thus a falsely elevated E2 level may be seen. Expect a week for LCMS results.
iMedical generally doesn't include Creatinine Kinase (CK) in the bodybuilding panels as it can be a meaningless test in this context. Almost certainly CK levels will be significantly elevated if training. Causing undue alarm. CK can easily be added into any of the BB panels for just $6.00 if wanted.
Steroid use should be monitored with blood tests. While Bodybuilders are not at higher risk of Kidney, Liver and other disease than the rest of the population it is worthwhile to monitor kidney and liver function especially with steroid use. Other tests such as Cholesterol and Full blood counts are also very useful and are included in the BB panels along with full hormone panels that can be customised depending on needs.
Blood pressure and heart health should also be monitored. A Stress Echocardiogram done by a Cardiologist would possibly be a prudent investigation with chronic steroid use (a non invasive procedure)
Even without supplement use it is good practice to monitor with a comprehensive blood workup. It doesn't need to be too often but occasionally is useful. Making sure all natural hormone levels are in balance will only optimise any goals you are aiming to reach.
