Hormone Testing for Men
Hormones regulate vital aspects of human health, including mood, libido, metabolism, and development. Testing your hormones can provide insight into the changes your body may be experiencing and understand how they are affecting you.
Your Hormones, Your Health
As early as the age of 30, men will begin to experience a decline in testosterone, resulting in fatigue, decreased libido, memory loss, insomnia, and reduced muscle mass.
Finding the right hormone balance offers men significant benefits, such as increased energy, better sleep, stabilized moods, and support in aging physically, emotionally, and mentally. Research has also shown that hormone therapy improves overall health by reducing the risk of disease.
Onsite Hormone Testing
As part of assessing your baseline health and ongoing hormone balance, we offer a large selection of hormone testing for men from anti-aging tests to erectile dysfunction (ED), progesterone to testosterone tests.
Hormone testing can reveal an abundance of important information about a man’s health. All OnePeak Medical clinics provide onsite blood draws and laboratory testing for optimal convenience.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Men should be tested when they begin to show signs of testosterone deficiency such as brain fog, erectile dysfunction (ED), insomnia, mood changes, anxiety, etc. Most men should be tested around the age of 50, however, it’s never too late to benefit from hormone therapy.
