Medicheck Blood Tests For TRT, What Are They And Why Are They Worth Considering?

Read on To Discover What Medicheck Blood Tests For TRT Actually Involve

Learn Why They Are Useful If You Are On/ Considering A Course Of TRT Or Anabolic Steroids!

Why Look At Doing A TRT Test

There are a number of benefits that can be gained from undergoing TRT/ testosterone replacement therapy or a form of anabolic steroids course (I won’t tell, I promise).

As I’m sure you are aware, these can include:

  • Increased strength
  • Libido
  • Sexual performance
  • Fat loss
  • Motivation & Confidence

Alongside these benefits, also come a number of potential health risks, particularly if TRT or anabolic steroids are taken to excess.

I published an article about the potential side effects of TRT, which you can check out below:

TRT Therapy Side Effects

To give you a high level overview, some key potential side effects are as follows:

  • Lowered Sperm Count/ Infertility
  • Increased risk of blood clots
  • Growth of “breast” tissue/ development of man boobs
  • Oily skin & acne
  • Testicle Shrinkage
  • Increased risk of stroke & heart attack

depressed man

To reduce the risk of side effects, it needs to be made sure that your hormones remain balanced.

These tests will help you and medical professionals if you work with them keep track of this.

You should at least be taking one of these tests prior to starting TRT or taking steroids and six months in to the process.

I’d personally recommend you start as soon as 8 weeks in and continue testing every eight week period.

What The Medicheck Blood Tests For TRT Covers

The Medicheck blood tests for TRT include and will report to you the following:

  • Testosterone
  • Free testosterone (calculated
  • Prolactin
  • Oestrodial
  • SHBG

Their tests will report on values up to 520 nmol/L, whereas most tests will not measure levels above 52 nmol/L.

This is particularly important if you are on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) or anabolic steroids and you are expecting to have extremely high levels of testosterone.

Another thing to note is that their test includes a check on your Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) level.

While research to date has indicated it is unlikely that testosterone replacement therapy increases the risk of prostate cancer.

This is a caution that is still advised, in particularly for men who already have prostate cancer.

As such Medichecks UK wanted to ensure you can monitor this.

  1. C says:

    Great article. I wish I had known this when I tried Prohormones. I figured the prohormones would be fine but it would have been good if I did my own blood testing. I tried prohormones back in 2009 or 2010, right before they became banned in the United States. It was probably not the best choice because I didn’t really know all the information I needed to know. I have not done any kind of prohormones since 2011 or any steroids or anything, 

    so I think everything even back out. But I appreciate your article because it will help other people thinking of trying anabolic steroids to remind them to get a blood test first. Is it hard to take your own blood sample? Thanks! Always a good article on your website.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey C, 

      Yeah if you are going to take anabolic steroids or opt for testosterone replacement therapy, I would advise getting tests done before hand and during to monitor the progress of your vital markers. I’ve done a few and the medicheck blood tests as well, all have been really easy, it’s literally just a finger prick.

  2. Kevin says:

    This is a great post on Medicheck Blood Tests. It’s really important to those doing Testosterone Replacement Therapy or any other artificial means to stimulate or lower hormone levels. The thought of being able to test yourself without going to a doctor is quite enticing. How much do these tests usually cost?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Kevin, 

      I’m glad you found this article useful! 

      I’d personally recommend looking to boost testosterone production through lifestyle change first and foremost, that being said testosterone replacement therapy is very effective, you just need to keep a close eye on some key health markers, which is what these tests are for.

      The average price for these sorts of tests is about £125, at the moment you can get them on Medichecks for £99

  3. Mike says:

    It sounds like there are many benefits to getting this test. I do have one question though. What does TRT stand for? It’s great that the tests covers so many different areas and thanks for explaining what values they will go up to. Medichecks mission does sound great too, it’s great they are making blood testing available for everyone

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Mike, 

      Apologies, I probably should have covered that in the article!

      TRT stands for testosterone replacement therapy, I’ve updated the article now, to make that clearer. yeah if you do ever decide that you need to increase your T levels via anabolic steroids or TRT, these tests are great as there are side effects that come with both. These tests help you keep track of the vital health markers.

  4. Yomi says:

    It’s important yo take these medic checks, because for whatever reason one takes any form of steroid it should be legal and with medical supervision, knowing that there are routine tests can be done to monitor these effects is really good. More people should be sensitized on this. Dong a TRT test should be understood and you have done a good job in shedding light on it.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Yomi, 

      Yep if you are taking anabolic steroids or are on TRT you need to keep track of certain key health trackers and these tests enable you to do just that!

      Yep more people (those who take anabolic steroids in particular) need to be aware of the importance of keeping track, of these health markers.

  5. Terri says:

    I think these blood tests are valuable and make sense. Medicine is moving forward in a way that patients can be proactive in taking better care of their health. They can better monitor hormone and vitamin levels if on steroids and certainly if having prostate cancer one would want to monitor testosterone levels. 

    This type of blood tests makes it more convenient for many rather than going to Doctor appointments and waiting in a waiting room. I also think they are convenient for people to be able to do them in the comfort of their home. I also think more people will keep up on their blood work doing it this way than taking time out to go to the doctor’s office.

    Using this testing for checking other medical health issues like Diabetes, heart disease, Thyroid and other things is great too. I like that you can look up your results for yourself and you don’t have to wait for an appointment for several weeks to see what they are.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Terri, 

      Yep trying to get blood tests done via your doctor can be a fairly time consuming and painful affair. Not that I advocate taking anabolic steroids; but if people are, tests like these are vital to keep track of your vital health markers and making sure that you aren’t doing your body potential harm and actually getting the benefit, from what will e an expensive outlay!

      Yeah the medicheck blood tests options are great, you can take them to your own GP afterwards and seek guidance on what if anything, you need to do next.

  6. Jordan Smith says:

    Wow! I’ve being hearing about medicheck for quite a while now, it’s good to see a well detail post about it. Thisapost made me remember when I was on testosterone shots for 2 years and I couldn’t control the yoyo effects on my mood so I switched from one possible solution to another. It’s all in the past now.

    I will definitely share this, you never can tell who it might help.

    Regards!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Jordan, 

      Yeah Medichecks are very good at what they do!

      Yeah if you are some form testosterone treatments, you need to keep track of those vital markers and make sure a medical professional is able to give you advice on them!

  7. Stella says:

    Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment that can be used to cure or regulate the testosterone level. We all low that our testosterone especially for male drops little by little with age. This can cause many change in our body like low sperm count, extra body weight,low sex drive etc. Am just hearing about Medicheck blood test for the first time, but it would be amazing if all their features I see inside this review speak truth about them. Which TRT mode of treatment do you think is the best oral medications, intramuscular injections, and transdermal patches?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Stella, 

      Yep your spot on with regards to TRT and some of the potential downsides of suffering from low testosterone levels. 

      I personally don’t advocate TRT, I actually advise people to boost testosterone production naturally, through diet, lifestyle and your fitness regime. 

      I’d only advise TRT if a medical professional is telling you that it is the only option, then I’d take whatever course your doctor/ medical expert advises.

  8. Chris says:

    As a UK resident, I love this article as it explains Medicheck Blood Tests available in the UK. I know it’s vital for those doing Testosterone Replacement Therapy or any other artificial means to strive to reduce hormone levels. It is lovely also that one doesn’t need a health professional to be able to do these tests. 

    Thanks for this beautiful article and I hope to spread it around our online community groups.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Chris, 

      I’m glad you found this this, yeah it is very easy to collect your own sample for the Medicheck blood tests but if you aren’t able to collect your own sample; or can’t collect your own for any reason, you have options for nurses to attend your home; or for you to visit one of their clinics, where they can do it for you.

  9. R.J. says:

    Hey Nate, I like your article. I like articles that make us as a people aware of certain health and body issues that we are likely to ignore so thanks for the information and if I may be so bold, your article was a great but long read but I understand that was necessary because I have a better understanding of TRT and how to go about addressing it. Anabolic Steroids was something I wasn’t aware of but again, thanks for that and the info. Continue being great buddy!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey RJ, 

      I’m glad that you found the article useful!

      Yeah if you are on TRT or taking anabolic steroids, you need to make sure your vital health markers are where they should be, it’s not something that everyone does (particularly if on steroids) but it’s important for your health, to keep track of these things.

  10. DorcasW says:

    Hello; a great article on TRT Test. there are a number of men out there who would be happy to gain access to this article, they would get active with every word of your information. 

    Do you think the many side effects mentioned will negatively affect everyone who takes the TRT test? I think that a family member of mine will need to get himself one of these TRT Test devices. I will share this article with him. 

    DorcasW

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Dorcas, 

      I’m glad that you found this useful! 

      So the medicheck blood tests or any TRT test for that matter, don’t come with side effects. It is actually doing testosterone replacement therapy itself or taking anabolic steroids that come with the actual side effects. If your family member wants to check their testosterone levels as a whole, I suggest they check out this article on the standard home testosterone test from Medichecks UK

  11. Bella says:

    The thought of having to conduct this medicheck blood test without having to visit a doctor is really enticing. I really think that the prospect that this would bring to people who want to reduce their testosterone would be great. Very interesting one and I’d surely try to share this with anyone I found in need of this information . thank you! However, I would wish to know how much the test possibly cost

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Bella, 

      Yeah the Medicheck blood tests do eliminate the need to speak with your doctor to try and getting them to organise blood tests for you. 

      That can be quite a time consuming process in some scenarios. 

      To be honest most people have too little testosterone, so most will be looking to take these types of tests prior to getting testosterone replacement therapy or while getting testosterone replacement therapy, to keep track of vital health markers.

  12. Nuttanee says:

    This is the first I heard of testosterone replacement therapy. The side effects are a bit scary but I guess some people might need the therapy. Thank you for your review on Medicheck. How does it work? Do we have to send in the sample of our saliva in? Or there is a clinic that we have to go in and get the test done?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Nuttanee, 

      Ok, testosterone replacement therapy is getting really quite popular especially over the last ten years or so, with more and more people suffering from extremely low testosterone levels. 

      Yeah I personally prefer trying to increase testosterone levels naturally; but in some scenarios and once you reach certain ages, TRT may be a necessity. 

      So the Medicheck blood tests have the option where you can take a sample yourself (finger prick) they have multiple clinics you can visit and they will do it for you; and they even offer a service where a nurse can come to you, to collect your blood sample.

  13. Dane says:

    Hello there, thanks for  sharing this wonderful post. Testosterone level in most people who have a low level in it do not really know how to go about doing this test and as a result has a good knowledge of their testosterone level. Going by this post, I’m glad to have come across it as I now understand how important it is to check one level of testosterone. Most importantly the ability to check ones level on his own without the doctor is really cool as most people wouldn’t want to share such things.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Dane, 

      Yeah these tests TRT specifically are for people who are considering or already on testosterone replacement therapy or steroids. It’s a great way for them to understand if there testosterone levels are improving/ where there levels site at; but there are also a number of other heath factors to consider if you are “artificially” increasing your testosterone levels. This test helps you keep track of these and will the Medichecks UK doctors will provide advice if there are any potential issues. Which is helpful as in certain scenarios (if you are on steroids for example) it’s not necessarily something you can go to your normal doctor about.

      The Medichecks UK home testosterone test is ideal, if you want to just check your testosterone levels and you aren’t on any kind of anabolic steroid or testosterone replacement therapy.

  14. Antonio says:

    Hi Nate

    it is interesting to read this article, as often blood test can be very revealing, whilst at other times, it will show very little . The good thing about blood tests are that they are multifunctional, revealing much more than what is  being currently investigated.  The only problem I can envisage is that blood tests are not fully revealing, as sometimes people have normal results, whilst others many have abnormal readings but turn out to be normal. This is why blood tests cannot be the only way to gauge the effectiveness of TRT. The doctors experience will have to come into play as well.

    Are the doctors looking for abnormal markers when carrying out these blood test.

    Thanks

    Antonio

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Antonio, 

      You’re spot on, the blood tests can’t tell you everything you need to know. The great thing about these Medicheck blood tests is they are targeted specifically for certain areas of health. So yes they are looking out for abnormal marker readings associated with testosterone replacement therapy. The doctors that work for Medichecks UK make notes on the results and will recommend courses of action and things to be discussed with your own doctor.

  15. jim says:

    First of all, great topic.  I take Testosterone so I know how confusing it can be.  So the topic is great.  I have a doctor that tests me but many don’t, and if I didn’t have insurance, it would be very expensive.

    The only place that I saw your social media buttons was at the very bottom.

    Great topics on your menu.  Really like how they move to your blogs relating to each subject.  Great topic and a lot of work put into this site.

    Good Luck,

    Jim

     

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Jim,

      Thanks I’m glad you found the article useful, yeah if you are on TRT you really do need to check these health markers and keep a close eye on them!

      Thanks for the pointer with regards to my social media buttons, I’ll see if I can put them somewhere more prominent if they weren’t that easy to find.

      Good to hear that the site is easy to navigate, I like to think it is; but always great to hear it from my visitors.

  16. GVporras says:

    Thank you for sharing this great information about medicheck, and great that this company exists with this product where we can check our blood level for TRT ourselves before trying any asteroids. 

    I noticed that this company are located in the U.K. I live in the USA.

    My question is, those this company shipped to America?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thank you 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi GV, 

      I’m glad you found this useful, yeah the medicheck blood tests for TRT is a good service. 

      They are UK based, they don’t you’d be better off using a US firm for these types of blood checks, if you want a recommended company, let me know.

  17. Shelley says:

    Checking testosterone without having to visit the hospital and all that is really great to know of and for what is worth, really great to know of. Medheck blood test for testosterone is really great and surely would help in saving both cost and time since it could be achieved even while staying at home. This is great and I’d share with my hubby too. Cheers

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Shelley, 

      Yeah please do share it with your husband, especially if he is on or considering testosterone replacement therapy, the Medicheck blood tests for TRT is a really good service and pretty much vital, if on TRT or steroids and you aren’t getting these checks done elsewhere!

  18. Dane says:

    Hello there, thanks for sharing this wonderful post. Testosterone level in some people when itbisblow causes so many people like love self esteem and all and goes a along way to affecting the mind of the individual. I have never though of testosterone replacement before or even its therapy. I see this post as a really nice and educational one everyone should read. How caan lifestyle change affect testosterone boost?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Dane, 

      I think you’re saying that low testosterone can lead to low self esteem; and that is 100% correct! Having low T can effect your mental health in multiple ways including increasing the likelihood of suffering from depression.

      With testosterone levels on average being at an all time low, more people are turning to steroids and testosterone replacement therapy but aren’t necessarily checking for the potential side effects that come with them; and that is where these medicheck blood tests come in to play, they keep track of your key health markers that can be impacted as a result of replacement therapy or taking anabolic steroids.

      Changes to diet, changing your workout routines and avoiding certain types of chemicals can all help increase your testosterone production. My tips will help you with this!

  19. Ronald Otochi says:

    TRT, why would someone want to go through this? to boost their T levels? Am not sold this is a good idea to boost T levels. The word steroid completely freaked me out. As a weight lifter I stay away from this stuff. I see the benefits you listed but I don’t understand why someone would want to go through this, care to elaborate more?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Ronald,

      Sadly low testosterone levels are becoming more and more common place and suffering from low testosterone can lead to a whole host of health issues, you can find out more about this below.

      Testosterone And Health – How Low T Effects Health

      In some cases TRT is going to be required; and that is where something like the Medicheck Blood tests for TRT comes in to play. It’s good that you steer away from steroids but some people don’t and again you need to keep track of certain key health markers, which is what these tests are for.

      I personally recommend people to try increasing testosterone naturally firs; but in some scenarios replacement therapy is going to be the best option as having healthy testosterone levels is vital for male health & good for female health as a whole (There is never a requirement for women to have testosterone replacement therapy) 

       

  20. Tammy says:

    Nice site explaining how to go about testing your blood levels in such a simple way.  I am a medical technologist in a laboratory and was not aware that there was a finger stick option in a home kit.  

    Having this option is great especially for those who don’t want to take the time to go through the hassle of checking in and waiting in line and then the results go back to the doctor.   It is a hassle but it is so important to follow up with routine consistent blood levels when taking such replacements and steroids that can cause side effects.  

    Very informative.  Enjoyed the information.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Tammy,

      Yeah it is handy, as a lot of doctors don’t like to get involved with TRT and specially if someone is taking anabolic steroids.

      So yeah it is good for someone who is taking anabolic steroids for example, as they can keep track of important health markers, that they wouldn’t be able to in normal circumstances.

      Yeah The Medicheck blood tests are really good, simple finger prick and you can go to their clinics or have a nurse visit you at home, if you aren’t confident collection your own sample.

  21. Travis says:

    Sounds like there are a lot of benefits from going through testosterone replacement therapy but also a lot of very negative side effects as well. Is there other more natural options that you have come accross? I know that anabolic steroids work but don’t you think that the side effects are not worth the gains that come with it? Thank you for the review though, there is s lot of good information here! 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Yeah there are a lot of benefits to TRT if you have low testosterone production but like you say many potential side effects as well. 

      This is where the Medicheck blood tests for TRT come in to play, they help keep track of whether your in a position to suffer from these side effects and you can the manage accordingly .

      Yeah there are multiple options, I suggest you check out this Alternatives To Testosterone Replacement Therapy article as a starting point.

  22. Benson says:

    Hello Nate, such an educational post should be made known to all. Health issues that occur in so many people are usually from a very minor thing which we have disregarded as not important. Regular check ups should be taken to help us reveal some health issues. This test is one that most people can easily carry out , but lack of knowledge and understanding have kept a lot of people in the dark about these things. I’ll share this post to help enlighten more people out there. Nice being here.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Benson,

      Glad you found it useful!

      These Medicheck blood tests are aimed specifically at someone either on anabolic steroids or testosterone replacement therapy, so if you are doing either of those and not getting tested, this is pretty much vital!

      To check standard testosterone levels for your health, I’d suggest learning more about the home testosterone test service by Medichecks UK

  23. Claudio says:

    Hello Nate,
    Everything related to our health seems very interesting.

    As we are with the production of testosterone in our body. 

    A sex hormone that has important effects on our health. 

    It seems very correct to know what our situation is to perform a blood test from the Medichecks laboratory that you recommend.

    I will consult it first with my trusted doctor. 

    Thank you!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Claudio,

      Yeah we certainly need to keep track of our health, these medicheck blood tests are designed specifically for men who are on TRT or taking anabolic steroids.

      Testosterone production is extremely important for male health, suffering from hypogonadism/ low T, negatively impacts health in multiple ways, some of the symptoms can be fatal!

      There are a few companies that offer blood tests for home levels, Medichecks UK is the one I personally work with and recommend, this is mainly because getting testing done via your doctor can be a very long and difficult process to go through.

  24. shirian says:

    I found your article to be truly useful and I got impressed by knowing that there would be a Medicheck Blood Tests for TRT in home. I totally agree with you; naturally increasing testosterone level is best approach.But to be honest, I would love to try this Medicheck Blood Tests to get more accurate result in order to see whether or not my health condition is normal. Apart from estimating the level of testosterone in the body thorough blood test,like you said, it may illustrates the risk of heart disease,diabetes,hormone status and any other issues we may have in our body.

    Thank you for your helpful article

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Shirian,

      Good to hear your found this useful!

      Yep optimising your testosterone is the best way to go, assuming your levels aren’t already extremely low.

      I would advise getting these tested, if you aren’t on replacement therapy or anabolic steroids, I would suggest opting for the Medichecks UK standard home testosterone test

  25. Jake says:

    Finding out about testosterone without having to see a doctor is is nice to know. That is not something I would enjoy.  A blood test for testosterone is interesting, I didn’t know about that. It would save me the time and hassle  since it could be done in the comfort of my home. This is great I am going to research this some more. Thanks! 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Jake, 

      Yeah so these Medicheck blood tests are more for people who are on testosterone replacement therapy or anabolic steroids.

      They do standard testosterone tests as well, which you can check out here: The Medichecks Home Testosterone Test

      Then key advantage of this Medichecks UK service, is that you don’t have to go to the doctors to get these tests done. Getting testosterone tests through you doctor can be a very long process & is quite often not successful.

      With these home tests, you can get your results and then taken them to your doctors, if there are things that need addressing.

  26. Michael says:

    Thanks for this article. I know that we must find ways to raise our testosterone levels as we get older. I have been able to increase mine through interval training and diet. I may reach a time when that is no longer enough and I am glad you share your knowledge and info about TRT with all of us. I live in the US. Can I still use Medichecks?

    Thanks again.

    Michael

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Michael,

      Yeah as you age replacement therapy may be an option that you have to consider. Although lifestyle changes like you’ve been making, may be enough to maintain healthy T levels.

      Sadly the Medicheck blood tests offering isn’t available in the US, there are however plenty of companies similar to Medichecks UK in the States, if you want a recommendation for one, just give me a shout!

  27. Isaac says:

    I’ve never done a test like the TRT test, but it sounds like it could be interesting. Actually, I did some blood test to see what blood type I was, but I’m guessing this is a lot different. I’ve always been a fan of natural remedies to health problems and am wondering if there are any good ways to get balanced testosterone levels via a natural solution. Do you know of any? Also, does Medicheck support customers in the US?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Issac,

      To be honest, you would only need the Medicheck blood tests for TRT if you were on testosterone replacement therapy or steroids.

      They do offer a standard home testosterone test for those who aren’t on synthetic T. Sadly they don’t support the US, there are loads of companies that do provide this service there, let me know if you need a recommendation.

      Yeah there are loads of ways to increase testosterone naturally which you can check out here!

  28. riverdogg says:

    Nice article on Medicheck Blood Tests For TRT & Anabolic Steroids.. but good lord! I want to increase my testosterone levels but those side effects are scary.. how safe can it be? Will the MediCheck blood tests catch those side effects before they happen? I can’t stress enough how much I really, really.. REALLY don’t want my junk to shrink!  Lol

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Riverdog, 

      Yeah so if you do decide that TRT or anabolic steroids are the right way to go, these Medicheck blood tests will definitely help you keep track of these vital health markers. 

      There doctors review your results as well and will add any comments where things need further reviewing. You can then take the appropriate action or consult your own doctor for further advice. 

      The idea of these tests is that they will help you identify if the side effects may be an issue; before they occur.

  29. Steve says:

    This is very interesting and about time that a company makes tests to check testosterone levels without having to go to a doctor. I also am intrigued that they are also offering tests for prostate PSA, various vitamins, and are expanding to cover other levels of nutrients in our bodies. The fact that your offering a discount also makes it easier to try.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Steve, 

      Yeah the medichecks UK service is really good and the amount of blood tests available is quite impressive. 

      The medicheck blood tests are particularly good for TRT & anabolic steroids as both of these can come with health risks and these tests keep track of both the testosterone levels and the health markers for the potential health risks as well!

  30. Lisa says:

    Medicheck sounds great. To be in control of providing blood, or whatever bodily fluids cuts out the middle man and price of phlebotomy. Low testosterone has really been spotlighted for last several years and I know in circles around me, it has made a huge difference with men that have found replacement necessary. I will gladly share this with them. Thank you again. 

    Melissa

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Lisa, 

      Yeah the medichecks UK service is really pretty good!

      Yeah low testosterone levels is a growing issue, many people may turn to anabolic steroids or TRT, these can come with side effects, so the good thing is the medicheck blood tests help you keep track of your testosterone levels and your these health markers that will help you track if you’re potentially developing the side effects associated with TRT and anabolic steroids. 

      Yeah please do share, it’s appreciated!

  31. wes says:

    Hi,

    This was a fascinating article for me,  I suffer from slight hair loss. And I know sometimes this can contribute to low testosterone, I was looking into something to help boost my T-levels up.

     To get me a little more energy but I’m not sure if I’m ready to try the TRT and Anabolics yet. I’ll try your natural method first to see how it works. How would I know if the Anabolic and TRT is the right choice for me?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Wes, 

      Yeah low T can potentially be a cause of hair loss. 

      Yeah I would advise trying natural methods to increase testosterone production first. Prior to that though, I’d suggest finding out exactly how low or high your testosterone levels are, if you’re in the UK I suggest you check out the Medichecks Home Testosterone Test

      If not, there will be other blood testing firms where you can get your T levels checked. I’d start there and dependant on if your testosterone levels are low and low they are, decide if TRT is the right option for you.

  32. Shifts says:

    Oh no! Nobody told me all these before now. I had only known the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy. I was ignorant and I didn’t know that there are some number of negatives as well if TRT is taken in excess. And from what I read here, I think the disadvantages have weight compared to the advantage anyways.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Shifts, 

      Yeah there are a few different side effects that come with TRT & particularly anabolic steroids. With TRT if you keep track of how your body is responding, you should be able to gain the benefits without suffering from the side effects, that is what these medicheck blood tests are for.

      To be honest the impact of suffering from low testosterone is far worse than any potential impacts of TRT, so making sure it is managed correctly, is the best way to proceed, if you’re in a position where TRT is definitively required & you can’t increase T levels with lifestyle change.

  33. Techie says:

    Oh yeah, I read about TRT on your website before now. It was really intensive and educative. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has nasty side effects which gets me annoyed when I think of them. Thanks to Medichecks for their state-of-the-art laboratory blood testing available to everyone and everyone and thank you for sharing.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Techie, 

      Yeah the side effects of TRT are pretty serious. That being said, suffering from low testosterone/ hypogonadism is even worse than potential TRT side effects. 

      If TRT is managed properly & your health markers are checked regularly, it’s extremely effective. The checking is precisely what these Medicheck blood tests are for.

  34. arzu hosan says:

    it is interesting to read this article,, as regularly blood test can be exceptionally uncovering, while at different occasions, it will show next to no . The beneficial thing about blood tests are that they are multifunctional, uncovering significantly more than what is in effect presently explored. The main issue I can visualize is that blood tests are not completely uncovering, as in some cases individuals have typical outcomes, while others many have strange readings yet end up being ordinary. This is the reason blood tests can’t be the best way to check the viability of TRT. The specialists experience should become possibly the most important factor as well.Are the specialists searching for anomalous markers when completing these blood test.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Arzu,

      yeah with blood tests, it does depend on what you are testing your blood for, some tests will look for multiple things, while others are looking at specific areas anyway.

      Yeah so with Medicheck blood tests, it is to check those key health markers, that way if it looks like there may potentially be an issue, it can be flagged to the consultant/ Dr’s managing the TRT program and they can keep an eye on it, the blood test is like a safety check, as that is how professionals know how the body is responding to the treatment and then they use their expertise & judgement from there.

  35. Henderson says:

    Oh wow, I never knew that one can actually check their own testosterone levels without having to check in with the doctor. I find this post very informative because I will be able to send this to people who will be able to check themselves. I see the part where you mentioned steroids. It is very good to find this out. Very informative. I will take into consideration what I have learnt here.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Henderson,

      Yeah it is now possible to get these sorts of blood tests done privately. Which is a particularly good thing in the UK, as getting a blood test done through your GP can be extremely difficult!

      Yeah the medicheck blood tests service, is very in depth in terms of checking key health markers for those on TRT & steroids, they also offer a wide range of blood tests, for anything you may think of that you need a blood test for, there is a pretty good chance that Medichecks UK will provide at least one test for it!

  36. Sam says:

    Thanks for the article.  I like the idea that Medichecks allows people to conduct the tests they need without medical intervention.  It does disturb me a little however that there are still people who even consider anabolic steroids.  They are THAT bad for you.  Of course people should check their testosterone levels for other reasons too, like low libido and heart health.

    Thanks for making the offer available, and good luck with your endeavor.

    Sam

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Sam,

      Yeah the medicheck blood tests service is very helpful, especially for things like checking testosterone levels if you’re on TRT or steroids, as these often aren’t covered or something that your GP is willing to order for you.

      Yeah it still worries me that people take anabolic steroids, due to the health risks; but if they are I’d rather they have access to a service like Medichecks UK so they can keep track of any potential side effects & the same for those on TRT as well (although TRT is far less dangerous)

      Yeah there are a lot of scenarios where you should consider getting your testosterone levels checked, as T impacts your physical, mental, emotional & sexual health. Suffering from low or even lower than optimised testosterone has negative impacts & you miss out on certain health benefits.

  37. siamsk says:

    Hello, Thanks for sharing this great review. This is the first time I’ve heard of testosterone replacement therapy. The side effects are a bit scary but I think some people may need therapy. Thank you for your medical review. How will it work? Do we have to send a blood sample inside? Or is there a clinic we need to get in and check out? Can you help me

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey,

      So some men do need TRT, there area few different user cases but the main one tends to be men who are areover 40 who suffer from low testosterone.

      I agree the side effects of TRT can be pretty scary but the symptoms of low testosterone are actually lot worse and there are far more of them!

      So the medicheck blood tests for TRT are actually something you would do before or during your replacement therapy, it’s a way for you to check if the treatment is working (increasing testosterone levels) and keep track of your key health markers, to make sure you don’t end up with those side effects.

      Yeah if you think your testosterone is low enough to warrant TRT, I’d first recommend getting your T levels checked and then I can assist with recommending potential clinics. Let me know if you want to look at getting your levels tested initially & I can suggest the best option with medichecks UK or another organisation if you’re based outside of the UK.

  38. John says:

    Oh wow, this medi check looks very good because it will easily help one to make sure that testosterone levels are in the right places easily. As you have pointed, there wouldn’t be a need for the doctor. My concern is is the accuracy of the test itself. I will want to give it a try though. I trust what you have here. Thanks Nate. Good info.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi John,

      Yeah the medicheck blood tests service is very good, yeah i’s not easy to get things like testosterone tests done through the doctors (particularly in the UK) so that is why it’s useful to have access to a service like this.

      In terms of the accuracy of the tests, I was a bit sceptic myself at first, so tried a couple of different brads at the same time, they all pretty much returned the same results in terms of levels so trust the accuracy, I just preferred the medichecks service, which is why I now recommend to others.

      Thanks

      Nate

  39. Tom says:

    Hi Nate,

    This is a really interesting article. I didn’t actually know that TRT was a thing until reading this. But I am glad that I cam e across it and I’m sure that there will be a lot fo men out there that will benefit from it. By being able to check this stuff without having to go to the doctors will appeal to lots of guys too.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Tom,

      Yeah there are more and more men who are opting for TRT as a way to increase testosterone production. There are potential risks and side effects that are linked with this however (especially if you take anabolic steroids). The medicheck blood tests for TRT service, is to help you keep track of your key health vitals and understand if you’re potentially at risk of these and also help you make sure that the therapy is effective and your T levels are actually increasing.

  40. Andrew says:

    Hi Nate,

    Thanks for another informative article – this time on medichecks. After reading your testosterone replacement therapy article yesterday, I ordered the medichecks kit and it arrived today – brilliant service. If my testosterone results come back as low, what is the best and easiest way to get testosterone replacement therapy (I am based in the UK)? Thanks again, Andrew

    1. Nate Stone says:

      H Andrew, 

      I’m glad you liked the medicheck blood tests service. Yeah I use it myself 2 – 3 times a year to check my T levels & couple of areas myself & I really like the service. If your T levels are low, I’d suggest we have a look at exactly how low they are & what your lifestyle is like, it may be we can look at lifestyle changes that can be made.

      If TRT looks like it’s going to be the best option, there are a couple of national clinics that I can recommend, drop me an email when you get your results & we can discuss: nate@testosteronetips.net

  41. Jessie says:

    Thank you for the awesome post! I have been wondering if I should get a Medicheck Blood Test or just pass on it. After reading this I have been at least somewhat more convinced that I should get one  I worry a lot because my sex drive has went down, and and I’ve gained a lot of weight since college. Do you know if I can get it done while in Germany?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Jessie,

      If you are looking to improve your health/ fitness or if thee are areas of your health that you think are lacking, I would suggest a service like the medicheck blood tests. Blood tests help you to understand any potential health issues you may have; or where health may be lacking. Sadly they don’t offer this service in Germany; but I can recommend another organisation if you want a recommendation in Germany.

  42. Lenka says:

    Checking testosterone level seems to be very important and I’m glad I’ve come across your article about it. You provide a lot of valuable information about this topic and I think it’s much needed. I’ve heard that hormone levels affect our mood as well, is it true? Can there be also relation to depression?
    I like about the Medicheck test that you can have your  blood level tested without even seeing a doctor, that’s a big advantage that saves time. I will tell my family and friends about it.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Lenka,

      Yeah getting your testosterone levels checked are very important, especially if you are male! Yes your hormone levels impact your moods, and for men especially suffering from low testosterone can lead to/ increase risk of suffering from depression.

      Yeah the medicheck blood tests service is really good, you get a quick turn around and it isn’t always that easy to get blood tests through your doctor, so this service is a quick reasonably priced alternative.

  43. Jason Garza says:

    I had no idea that such a test existed. I read in your post that Medicheck created over 900 various tests that are available to us. 

    I know TRT has become a really big thing in the past few years. People used to have to search for information on TRT. But now you can see commercials on TV and ads on the internet. 

    I also found it interesting that there are so many side effects. I knew there were side effects to taking testosterone however, I thought that was for bodybuilders.

    This was a great post that opened my eyes on this subject. 

    Thanks  

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Jason,

      These medicheck blood tests are aimed at those on TRT or anabolic steroids so you can track that it’s working and that you don’t “fall foul” of the potential side effects.

      Yeah TRT has become a big thing, there are some user cases where TRT is 100% the right thing to do; but there are a lot more where people are off living a healthier lifestyle and making changes to see testosterone levels increase naturally.

      Yeah there are quite a few potential side effects, suffering from low T is certainly worse but the side effects of TRT can be pretty serious if your treatment isn’t managed properly and these things aren’t tracked.

      Glad you found it useful, any questions with regards to blood tests as a whole, just let me know!

  44. Benny says:

    thanks for this review. it was noted that While research to date has indicated it is unlikely that testosterone replacement therapy can increase the risk of getting prostate cancer, this is a caution that is still advised even today, but then in particularly for men who already have prostate cancer, medicheck ensures you can monitor it at all levels and this is just brilliant

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Benny,

      Yeah to be honest it’s been pretty much a “debunked myth” that TRT can cause/ increase risk of TRT. That being said it’s still a worry that people have so it is great that it has been included as part of this Medicheck blood tests service.

  45. Kevin says:

    Hi Nate,

    Yet another quality article on Medicheck blood tests. Your body is your temple, and therefore it wouldn’t hurt to check how it’s doing every once in a while. Since TRT has quite a few severe side effects to your health, checking up might be a solid idea. I personally have never done any form of steriods, but if I did, I would definitely do a check up! 

    Cheers

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Kevin,

      Thanks glad you liked it, I’m not a fan of TRT & only recommend it to people as a final resort. I definitely don’t recommend anabolic steroids, I recognise there are scenarios where people will do both though & want to make sure that they are getting the right support & information, to make sure that it’s working and they aren’t exposing themselves to health issues as well, that is precisely where these medicheck blood tests for TRT come in to things!

  46. trevorp says:

    hello there, and thank you for this wonderful post that holds a lot of information about the TRT tests the risk that might come with going on such a program, tbh this post has so much information that i can’t complete it all for now without dropping most of the comprehension so i will keep a tab on it a tad later 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Trevorp,

      Glad you liked it, yeah so the medicheck blood tests for TRT are for those who are on TRT or anabolic steroids. The idea is that they can check for elevated levels of testosterone (normal tests can’t) and can help you keep track of other key health markers ad make sure that people aren’t in danger of contracting the side effects. When you come back bud, any questions just let me know!

  47. Feji ben says:

    Hello there thanks for giving us the reason to look at doing A TRT test I have been told many time to do it but I never saw the importance of doing it, especially the teststerone  and also free teststerone I would do the TRT test and make sure all this are in check as teststerone is very important.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Ferji,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Testosterone is very important for health, especially for males. It impacts physical, sexual, mental & emotional health. If you want to test your levels, there are more appropriate medicheck blood tests available, this one if more for people on TRT or anabolic steroids. They offer a home testosterone test which is standard testosterone levels, that’s the one I’d recommend.

  48. RazvanIlie says:

    Thanks a lot for such an amazing review about Medicheck Blood Tests For TRT & Anabolic Steroid and explanation are given.

    A very good article for those who use steroids. I have some friends who have taken steroids and I will definitely show them this article they have all the information they need in it and I think they will use them enormously.

    Thanks and I wish you all the best. Happy New Year!

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Razvanllie, 

      Thanks, I’m glad that you found it useful and easy to follow. 

      Yeah if you do know anyone on steroids or on TRT the medicheck blood tests service is very useful as it can allow them to check if the steroids are working and make sure that they aren’t negatively impacting key areas of health. 

      Happy New Year to you as well!

  49. Lee says:

    I just did some TRT testing through 2 organizations. I did the test about 1 month apart. I suspect that this is very convenient. I could see the need to continue to check if you opt for therapy to ensure that you are getting the intended results of the therapy. My biggest obstacle is the actual cost of therapy. Therapy can run in the 1000s and I don’t see a way around that one. 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Lee, 

      Yeah TRT is a difficult one as it is very expensive and realistically once you start it’s something you need to stick with. If you do decide to stick with the TRT I do strongly recommend opting for medicheck blood tests or check that your TRT clinic offer them, so you can check that the TRT isn’t negatively impacting some key areas of your health.

  50. David Palla says:

    Wow, this is a great article.
    Yeah, it is very important that sensitive procedures like TRT and the use of anabolic steroids are accompanied by accurate and reliable lab tests. Your articulation of the benefits of TRT and the manifestation of low testosterone levels is very informative and I believe many will benefit from this. What is not clear in the post is the geographical scope of your testing laboratory, you talked of clinics that work together with the lab to collect blood samples for testing. It is not clear which continents are hosting these laboratories neither is there a procedure for accessing the blood test services. Would you kindly make this a bit clearer?
    Now testosterone level is a serious male challenge in the contemporary society, would you kindly highlight the level at which TRT and use of anabolic steroids become desirable as a remedy?
    Lastly, what measures can be taken to reduce the risks and contraindications of TRT and anabolic steroids use?
    Thank you

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey David, 

      Yeah spot on, lab tests like the medicheck blood tests are important to help keep track of that your testosterone levels and that some key areas of your health aren’t negatively impacted as a result of taking steroids/ TRT.

      Yeah apologies David, sadly medichecks are only UK based; but if you want a recommendation for a lab elsewhere, let me know what country and I can recommend somewhere!

      If you have below 500 NG/DL I would then suggest that seriously needs looking at, I would suggest lifestyle change first though, as supposed to anabolic steroids or TRT.

  51. Gomer says:

    Does Medicheck have branches here in Asia? We’d like to assist a friend who’s having a problem of low sperm count and not being able to impregnate her wife. It has started to affect their marriage so this friend sought my help for any advice I could give to him and that’s how I remembered this website about Testosterone Replacement Therapy. If you can refer a branch office in either Hongkong or Singapore, then I’d gladly accompany my friend to your clinics here.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Gomer, 

      Sadly medichecks are based purely in the UK. 

      If you’re looking for a similar service to the Medicheck blood tests, I’ve heard good things about pathlabs in Hong Kong.

  52. Carmen says:

    Thank you for paying attention to blood tests before taking any treatment. It is great that you can take them alone with that kit that sends you mymedichecks and you get the results on the internet. In a fast-paced, ever-present world, this is beneficial and I think more and more people will resort to this procedure. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Carmen, 

      Glad that you found this useful! 

      Yes the medicheck blood tests are a really good service. Especially for things like TRT & anabolic steroids were it isn’t easy or in some cases even possible to get it through your GP.

  53. Kell says:

    It is very helpful that we make sure our hormones remain balanced when undergoing TRT or taking steroids else we could attribute a lot of health risk to ourselves. Well, thanks to Medicheck. They have all that covered. How I wish their services extends abroad, it would have been great. There are so many people that would love their services.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Kell, 

      Yeah that is precisely what the medicheck blood tests are for, they first off make sure that the TRT or steroids are working and that your testosterone levels are in fact increasing, secondly they help you keep track of the key health markers associated that can potentially suffer as a result of being on TRT or anabolic steroids.

  54. andrejs says:

    About half a year back, I was diagnosed with chronic lymphoid leukemia. I have a question, can I do a blood test for TRT? Is TRT testosterone replacement therapy harmless in my case as You wrote that one of the side effects is Increased risk of blood clots?  Does this therapy improve sexual activity?

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Andrejs, 

      I’m sorry to hear that!

      TRT itself can come with side effects, I’d suggest speaking to a specialist in depth about your case and they can advise if TRT is best for you! 

      TRT is shown to improve libido and can help with erectile issues. 

      This medicheck blood test is for people already on TRT or considering it to take a baseline. You can still do the blood test despite your leukemia.

  55. Anastazja says:

    I appreciate the two main lists that you provided here symptoms of low T and the potential risks of an anabolic steroid regiment.  Your suggestion about regular checks on hormone balance seems very important.  Unfortunately, I am in the states so I would not be able to take advantage of the MediCheck program which you have mentioned, but the article has got me thinking.  I am going to find a local resource and have that check done.  Thanks for the article.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Anastzja, 

      Yeah sadly medichecks UK don’t provide this service abroad. There are however US based firms that can provide something very similar to these medicheck blood tests. 

      Yeah I personally get my hormone and other key health markers tested a couple of times per year, I’d suggest that it’s something everybody does, keep track of their health.

  56. Fluffy Duck Studios says:

    Hi Nate, great post. I’m a big believer in preventative therapies and diagnostic tools that can be done in your own home. Nowadays these tools are very safe, affordable and reliable – often cheaper and more effective than going to a doctor.  Using Medicheck and other similar tools may be the best way for men to keep themselves healthy without “damaging their pride” (or their wallets) and going to a doctor for a checkup.  

    I was going to ask what, aside from considering TRT, dietary changes you could make to boost testosterone levels naturally.  Then I read your article on 15 Foods for Boosting Testosterone. Simply awesome.  Definitely bookmarking your site for future reference. Nice work.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey,

      Yah I’m a big fan of arming yourself with as much information as possible when it comes optimising your health.

      Yeah with Medicheck blood tests for TRT and similar things, these often aren’t available through your doctors, so it’s a service you may not be able to get access to otherwise.

      Glad that you found that article useful, there are other ways to increase testosterone levels, so feel free to check out the other articles; any questions, just drop me a comment.

  57. Jannette says:

    Thanks for writing this review about the Medicheck Blood Tests and the valuable importance of the side effects as well. I like that it allows you to check through the mail by sending a secured envelope to send the blood sample to the lab and results posted on the secure website of the patient personal dashboard so you will not have to go site for hours waiting on results at the physician office or hospital.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Janette,

      Yeah so it is the side effects of TRT that I was talking about. That is part of what these medicheck blood tests for TRT monitor for as well.

      Yeah the service is very secure and designed for you to quickly receive and access your results. The other advantage is that a number of GP’s don’t enable you to get these tests or it can be very difficult, so you don’t need to bother with that either.

  58. Anthony Hu says:

    Thank you for your post. It is useful information for me. I am closing to 60 years old now and have some physical problem, such as reduced strength, libido, and sexual performance. I want to find out why, but never take time to do the research.

    Here comes your article on testosterone replacement therapy. I particularly like your description on “Why Look At Doing A TRT Test” which give my the answer to my problem. The testosterone replacement therapy increases strength, libido, and sexual performance. This is what I am looking for. I am definitely going to check my testosterone and based on the test, I will take action according.

    It is kind of you sharing this useful information with us.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Anthony,

      I’m glad that you’ve found this useful!

      Yeah what you’re describing certainly sounds like it may be low testosterone levels.

      Yep TRT may well be the best route for you to take. As supposed doing the TRT test, you’re probably better off considering one of the medicheck blood tests for standard testosterone levels.

      It will let you know what your testosterone levels are and you can establish if your levels are low, it’s also a bit cheaper than the TRT one. You can check it out in the below article:

    This is a great post about Medicheck blood tests. I went for a blood test last month because it’s cheaper than going to a doctor for a checkup. What I really like about these tests is that I can get them at my home. More people should use these benefits and think about their health.

      Hey Bluemoon,

      Yeah the Medichecks UK service is a very good one. A lot of these tests you also can’t get through your GP or it can be very time consuming!

      Yeah I like the fact it can be just done from home and the wide range of medicheck blood tests available. The fact they have ones for people who take steroids is really good as it’s not something you can get through your GP; and being able to check these things, will help these people be far healthier!

    I heard about Medichecks from a lot of people and most of them are very pleased. Reading your article I realized that I would really like to try it too. Unfortunately my budget is limited and if you can tell me how much does a TRT session cost? Do you think there can be some discounts? Thanks and keep in touch

      Hey Nimrodngy

      Yeah the Medichecks UK service is very good, I’ve been using it myself for a couple of years now & quite a few of my clients have tried it over the past 12 months & really like it.

      To be honest the TRT tests are only needed if you are planning on starting TRT or are doing anabolic steroids, if you just want to get your T levels checked, you can check their home testosterone test, which is one of the medicheck blood tests for those who want just test their T levels.

    I think the side effects of testosterone replacement therapy are not to be taken lightly. In fact, I agree that the tests should be taken since it ensures the tracking of hormone imbalances. It also helps that they have a plethora of sample results that can be used to benchmark one’s result. This will be especially a beneficial way to really know one’s self.  This is really helpful and informative. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Rhain,

      You’re correct the side effects aren’t to be taken lightly. Yep that is precisely what these Medicheck blood tests are for. It helps make sure that first off your TRT is working and testosterone levels are increasing & perhaps more importantly helps you check whether you are showing signs of being susceptible to the potential side effects. Glad you found it useful, please share with anyone else you think may find it useful!

    Knowing yourself is the one path to know the universe. This blood test will allow us getting insights about what’s going on in your body and this knowledge will give you the chance to act accordingly in order to keep balance in your life.

    Thanks for sharing in the best way (with a percentile discount :). New year’s resolutions should be SMART. In order to get better results, knowing where you are now is probably the most important factor to set realistic goals.

      Hi Juan,

      I couldn’t agree more & that is precisely what Medichecks UK want to deliver. They want to help you understand what is happening in your body, so you can optimise your health.

      The medicheck blood tests for TRT are more aimed at those who are on testosterone replacement therapy or anabolic steroids. There are however a wide number of other types of tests, which may be more suited to the information you need to be equipped with, to reach your goals. You can check out on the medichecks UK site.

    Very interesting article, especially due to the fact it’s a procedure I was unaware. As they say, you learn something new every day. What I am unclear on (not saying you did not cover it in your blog, but want to be sure that I understand it fully) is this for people that have hormonal imbalances? People who have prostate issues? People going through gender transitioning? 

    Also, I think this is a good option for people who have anxiety about visiting the doctor. And, you have the comfort and privacy of doing it in your own space.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Karen, 

      Glad you found it interesting. 

      To explain a it further TRT is testosterone replacement therapy is a medical procedure to “artificially” increase testosterone levels. 

      These medicheck blood tests are for people wo are on TRT or anabolic steroids. So these blood tests allow you to track how much your testosterone levels are increasing by.

      TRT & steroids can also potentially come with side effects, these tests from Medichecks UK test for health markers to see if there is the potential of developing these side effects, this information can then be provided to the doctors managing the therapy and they can make the necessary adjustments.

      In regards to prostate health it once believed that TRT can lead to prostate problems; but this has since been pretty much debunked, Medichecks UK just test for this as well, to give people complete safety of mind!

    Wow, awesome info! Thanks! I love that users can access their MediCheck results through an online portal. That is SO much more convenient than badgering the doc for results which often takes forever. As a healthcare worker, I am certain this information would be very helpful for the majority of patients. 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Katie, 

      Yeah the quick turn around for tests & the fact you can access your results from your own online portal, is one of the main selling points of Medichecks UK for me. 

      The other things is a lot of these tests often aren’t available through your doctor, most health services are about “sick care” as supposed to healthcare. Doctors aren’t interested in helping to prevent illness & that is why the medicheck blood tests are ideal. 

      They help you identify potential problems fix them, before they become a major issue!
