What blood work should I get done? Iv been told lipid liver and kidney function? I also have been getting acne so I'll have to get that looked at! Any advice would be much appreciated guys ✌

    Try to get a full panel if possible. Test, estro is a must. Organs are key and then things like fshs are all good to have.

    Huh? Just ask for a Hormone Panel with Lipid Profile and make sure it includes everything listed.

    Or even easier, just order it yourself:

    Before people make suggestions how to get a blood test, you have to know where the person lives first. It's very easy to get bloods in the states, but as you stated not as easy in AUS; it's the same in Canada.

    If you are worried about questions, have answers ready, but you don't need to put too much thought into it. Just say you've been feeling low energy, no sex drive, depressed etc, if they don't suggest a blood test I'd be surprised; bloods have always been the first course of action for my doctors.

    When asking for blood's can't you just be honest and say you run gear. I'm sure they would give you a funny look, but wouldn't refuse to give you the proper test you need to ensure everything is ok?

    I'm in Aus too. I find the best thing to do is go in, say you feel your sex drive is rubbish, you're depressed and you have no motivation. That was my starting point because with low T, is how I actually feel.

    After you get your blood test request form, write the codes on the sheet yourself. Don't copy the doctor's handwriting, if the nurse asks just say your doc tacked on a few.

    Go back to doc, and hopefully if he's one of those rubbish medical centre ones, he's seen 2650 patients since you last saw him and has forgotten what he requested. Most of the time they don't have even a vague knowledge of endocrinology, let alone medicine haha.

    If he refuses (*edit* - to give you a copy), rinse and repeat with a dodgier doc. If you ask directly, most of them will laugh, not understand, or try to work out what the recreational benefit is before denying you. You could also just see an endo, but $$$.

    FYI even with extensive medical knowledge, it took me years to get this system right, and figure out exactly what was happening in my body (low T- still not on cycle due to the difficulty of getting good gear in Aus + doing research to get it right) so YMMV.
