General Health Picture
Not feeling like yourself?
As we age, our bodies change and hormone levels change too. Feeling your best means your hormones need to be in balance. Getting tested will help you and your doctor discover what your body needs to be in balance.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance
Symptoms indicating a hormone test is needed:
Decreased sex drive / Erectile Dysfunction
Increased weight gain or fat accumulation and Muscle weakness or loss of muscle
Depression / Irritability
Fatigue / Insomnia
Increase in breast tissue (gynecomastia)
Low T and Opioid Medications
Nearly 1 out of 4 men over 30 may suffer from low testosterone levels. Opioid medications reduce testosterone levels and in turn low testosterone and vitamin D may potentially reduce the efficacy of opioids. By monitoring the hormone system while on opioid medication can help doctors prevent irreversible endocrine system damage.
