About the test
Gym test will include the following:
Baseline total testosterone
Details: Measuring baseline total testosterone levels can help diagnose conditions related to testosterone deficiency or excess, such as hypogonadism and androgen insensitivity syndrome.
Symptoms of adverse levels: Low total testosterone levels can cause symptoms such as decreased muscle mass, decreased sex drive, and depression. High total testosterone levels can cause symptoms such as acne, hair loss, and mood swings.
Solutions: Treatment depends on the underlying cause. If low testosterone levels are due to a medical condition, testosterone replacement therapy may be prescribed. If high testosterone levels are due to a medical condition, treating that condition can help lower testosterone levels. Lifestyle changes such as weight management and regular exercise can also help regulate testosterone levels.

Rarely, some people feel faint during a blood test. Tell the person doing the test if you feel faint, as you should immediately lie down to prevent fainting
This depends on the sort of tests you are having done. Many tests can be done on the same sample of blood, so you do not need to have a single bottle for each one: The bottles do not necessarily have to be completely filled either.
• The vein used for blood sampling is usually on the inside of your elbow or the back of your wrist.
• A tight band (tourniquet) is usually placed around your upper arm. This makes the vein fill with blood and makes it easier for the blood sample to be taken.
• The skin over the vein may be cleaned with an antiseptic wipe.
• A needle is then inserted into the vein through the clean skin, causing a sharp pricking sensation. The needle is connected either to a syringe, or directly to blood sample bottles.
• The tourniquet is undone. When the required amount of blood is taken, the needle is removed. The small wound is pressed on with cotton wool for a few minutes to stop the bleeding and prevent bruising. A sticking plaster may be put on. The blood is placed in bottles. There may be a slight ache following a blood test.
I just had the otoplasty procedure at MACS clinic in Watford. From the initial consultation through to the surgery itself, I felt totally looked after by the brilliant staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the clinic is very nice and I felt at ease at all times. Mr Vadodaria was very thorough, reassuring and happy to answer any questions and the surgery itself was painless. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the clinic to anyone!
