    GP or private lab bloodwork

    So insurance covers blood testing from my gp but I wonder is there any way news of that could get back to my trt doc. My levels will be high since I'm on a blast right now. Is it okay to go to my gp or if I should use a private lab what do you reccomend with a good price? Also what all should I test for mid cycle?

    Private lab. You don't need it in your file.

    There's plenty of private labs out there, find a good one and look/shop around. There are a lot of services out there, hopefully you don't live in one of the states which doesn't allow it though.

    Thanks but these are also pretty expensive like $150-$200
    I would honestly rather go to my gp and get them for what my copay is.
    I know they have privacy laws and all they can't share with anyone.
    Know anywhere cheaper? I figured $50-$100

    Any specialist will ask for your file from your gp if you have anything happen in the future. Insurance will see steroid use and say whatever is wrong is due to the illegal steroids you used and deny your claim. Trust me on this.

    Listen carefully to what Cape advised. Your file can follow you for years and years....

    Ok so you go to your gp and ask for your e2 to be tested. She asks why because that's not a normal test. What do you tell her? If you talk her into it and it has crashed, she will want to treat you for it. It's another ailment in your file. Increases your premium on life insurance or keeps you from getting it.

    Hey but by all means save the $150.

    Well just estrogen will only cost you about $40, about the same as a co-pay.
