ORLANDO, Fla. (June 23, 2016) – X-celerated Screenings, Central Florida’s leader in paternity testing, drug testing, lab tests and background checks, is celebrating Men’s Health Month in June with testosterone tests offered for the special price of $63 (normally $70).
“A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report found that nearly 26 percent of men in the United States do not have a regular source of health care,” said X-celerated General Manager Denisse Lebron. “At X-celerated Screenings we help men take a proactive stance regarding their health by providing affordable, confidential and accurate lab tests.”
Testosterone testing is used to diagnose several conditions in men. Testosterone is the main sex hormone in men and is responsible for male physical characteristics. The testosterone test may be used to help evaluate conditions such as:
- Decreased sex drive in men and women
- Erectile dysfunction in men
- Infertility in men and women
- Testicular tumors in men
- Hypothalamus or pituitary disorders
Typically, a test for total testosterone is used for diagnosis. At X-celerated Screenings testosterone is a simple blood test that measures testosterone that is bound to proteins in the blood (e.g., albumin and sex-hormone binding globulin [SHBG]) as well as testosterone that is not bound.
In men, a testosterone test may be ordered when infertility is suspected or when a man has a decreased sex drive or erectile dysfunction. Some other symptoms include lack of beard and body hair, decreased muscle mass, and development of breast tissue.
The normal range for testosterone levels in men is broad and varies by stage of maturity and age. It is normal for testosterone levels to slowly decline, usually after age 30. Testosterone may decrease more in men who are obese, chronically ill, or with the use of certain medications. Men who are diagnosed with consistently low testosterone levels and have related signs and symptoms may be prescribed testosterone replacement therapy by their healthcare provider.
June is Men’s Health Month with the goal of heightening awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. To celebrate, X-celerated Screenings is offering men a 10-percent discount on important health screenings such as prostate, cholesterol, diabetes, STDs, testosterone, hormones, allergies, iron, athletic performance and many others.
