    Who do you use for BW?

    I've never done private BW before and wondering if you could provide who you've used before? Also, what panel should I need and a general cost for said panel?

    I live in southern US and generally use privatemdlabs and order the HORMONE PANEL FOR MALES, and add on SHBG and 25-hydroxy vitamin D, but my requirements are more TRT related and I generally am not concerned with total T, just free T.
    If I recall correctly you can add on individual tests to panels using the build a panel option?

    Whichever company you use, always look for a discount code online. It usually will save you at least 10% or more.


    Edit: Nothing wrong with discountedlabs, I just have used privatemdlabs and can look back @ what I have ordered in the past.

    Yeah youre right Almost- the tests that have the note below the name, you can add tests to build your own. I was just looking at it today. Got lucky last 2 timea and had them pulled by my doc but gotta do on my own from now on.
    Theres actually more than 1 test that will give you what you want, just have to look at details of the panel you are choosing.

    Of you want your exact testosterone number and ita gonna be above 1500, you need to order one of the tests that says it is LC-MS.

    Coupon code for privatemdlabs.com: MAR2018 - good for either 10 or 15% off total
