Advanced Testing and Why It is So Important

At Oklahoma Men’s Clinic we realize it would be impossible to find a desired location without a map. The same is true when determining whether or not you are deficient in HGH, or if it may be another issue which is causing your symptoms. There are also other important things we must know about you before starting or recommending therapy. That is why we do our advanced Oklahoma City IGF1 testing. By doing specific testing we can ensure your success and safety during your therapy with us. We are experts at analyzing and interpreting your Lab results, educating you on what they mean to you, and using them to maximize your RESTORE Low Level HGH Replacement Therapy.

What We Check and Why

, IGF-1 HormoneIGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1)
IGF-1 is produced by the liver, skeletal muscle, and other tissues in the body as a response to GH (Growth Hormone) stimulation. IGF-1 intermediates many of the behaviors of GH, stimulating the growth of bones, other tissues, and promoting the production of lean muscle mass. Because GH is discharged into the blood in pulses throughout the day, it is nearly impossible find an accurate level from a standard GH test. IGF-1 mirrors GH overuns and insufficiency, but dissimilar to GH, its level is steady throughout the day. This makes IGF-1 the most accurate testing for GH Levels. Oklahoma Men’s Clinic offers Oklahoma City IGF1 testing, to make sure we have the most accurate GH Levels to recommend the proper therapy options. As you can determine from the graph below, IGF-1 levels decrease and almost mirror GH level deficiency as you age.

Once we have Identified your IGF-1 Level then we can put you in the correct Range and begin to effectively manage your HGH Therapy.

But We don’t stop there. We further insure that your symptoms are not a result of other possible deficiencies or lack of other hormones. That is why Oklahoma Men’s Clinic Will Check all of these as well with our Oklahoma City HGH lab tests, to ensure you receive the proper Therapy.

Free and Total Testosterone Levels
Total Testosterone is the sum of both biologically active and inactive testosterone. Free Testosterone is the what is biologically active and available for your body to use. The chart to the left shows you that starting around age 35 testosterone levels (Total Testosterone) decline by about 1% per year, however Free Testosterone decreases at about a 20% higher rate. By testing for not just total testosterone, like most clinics, we can actually determine your real deficiency in your free Testosterone., IGF-1 Hormone

The Big Three
These 3 tests we call the big 3 because they are paramount to finding out if your existing testosterone therapy is working correctly and effectively. Understand that your total testosterone is important, however the Free Testosterone must be considered equally, if not more. At Oklahoma Men’s Clinic we interpret these labs to identify your percentile, and then by evaluating your symptoms, either identify problems with current therapies or recommend the proper therapy.
