HGH Blood Test
Our industry-leading doctors bring their years of experience in analysis for accurate diagnosis and treatment. Before being prescribed you will need to complete our HGH Blood Test panel which can be found at the bottom of this page.
The HGH blood test panel is different for both men and women and include different information which allows our doctors to properly identify any underlying issues which may prevent you from using growth hormone.
Identifying Issues with our HGH Blood Test
Human growth hormone is a prescription drug and can potentially accelerate undesired issues. The following tests allow our doctors to properly identify any signs of cancer as well as other conditions.
3 element Chemical Panel
This test measures dissolved chemicals in your blood stream. Specifically, Glucose (sugar), creatinine, Urea, and Blood Ureic Nitrogen (BUN).
Glucose is the sugar that is used as energy by the cells in your body. Normal levels are maintained mainly by using insulin produced by your body to transport the glucose into the cells to be used as energy. In cases of high levels, it could be an indicator of Diabetes.
Creatinine, Urea and Blood ureic nitrogen are waste byproducts of a normal metabolism. They give us an insight to your kidney function. There has to be a correlation between them when they are abnormal in order to identify intrinsic kidney injury or failure. Your values are altered in regards to Urea and Blood ureic nitrogen (Blood Ureic Nitrogen depends directly from urea, so it is expected that if Urea is high, BUN will be so too.
This test tells us about how your blood sugar is being handled by your body and gives us insight as to its management in the past 3 months.
Liver function Tests
Liver function test are composed by a series of combined tests of proteins, enzymes and byproducts that give us an insight to your livers function. Amongst these is a substance called LDH and Alkaline phosphatase, which are found to be elevated (in an important manner) when there is tissue damage or tumor activity.
The lipid profile tells us about your cholesterol and triglycerides. These values take no less than three months to show a significant change when we are working to lower them.
Specific Prostatic Antigen
This test is a very good marker to evaluate your prostates health. Any value above 4 warrants further investigation regarding tumor growth.
Testosterone values vary with age. Supplemental testosterone should be evaluated in order to determine if the body is adequately absorbing it or if it is being turned into another hormone.
This a hormone that we check because sometimes applied testosterone might be changed by a process called aromatization into this hormone, thus keeping the testosterone levels low.
Somatropin and Somatomedin
These tests evaluate directly the activity of growth hormone.
