We require blood work every 8 weeks. The 8-week labs are very important to determine how the patient is responding to the medication and to assess if any changes need to be made to your treatment plan.
If you provide your own labs, they can be no older than 90 days. Patients transferring from another TRT clinic can provide us with labs up to 5 months old since they have already established therapy with a prior physician.
This depends on where your levels are at that time. If you are transferring from another TRT clinic we would expect your levels to be elevated. Unless your testosterone levels are above 1250, it should never be requested of a patient already on TRT to plummet their levels just to transfer to another clinic.
