Our ZRT Comprehensive Male Profile I tests the following hormones: Estradiol, Testosterone, DHEA-S, Cortisol (Cx4), Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA), Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Free Triiodothyronine (fT3), Free Thyroxine (fT4), Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO). By testing the levels of these hormones together, ZRT can create a hormone profile for the donor, which gives a more complete picture of health beyond testing a single hormone.
