Frequently Asked Questions
First we ask that you take an at-home sleep apnea test to confirm the diagnosis. If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, your Low T medical provider may recommend a simple oral device that can change the position of your jaw and the soft tissue of the mouth and throat to relieve symptoms.
For more severe sleep apnea cases, your medical provider may recommend a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. Your Low T treatment team will assist with the fitting of the CPAP and the titration of the air flow to maximize your results.
If you have low thyroid (hypothyroidism), your Low T medical provider may write a prescription for an oral thyroid medication, such as Armour Thyroid or Levothyroxine.
No. Fasting is not required. We do recommend that you drink plenty of water prior to your appointment, to make sure you are hydrated.
During your first visit, you will complete a health questionnaire where you will tell us about any symptoms you’re having and your medical history, and you will a have simple blood test*, and your vitals will be checked, and you’ll be on your way. As you are heading out we’ll book your second visit for you.
*The labs consists of a hormone panel, prostate, thyroid, cholesterol, A1C- glucose, liver function and more.
At your second visit , which is only about 35 minutes – you will meet with our medical provider where they will conduct a physical exam, and discuss the results of your labs, your vitals, your answers to our health assessment, your health goals and any recommended therapy. If you had low testosterone levels on your first blood draw, we will run a 2nd test during this visit to verify that you do have low testosterone and you could potentially begin therapy.
The $99 health assessment includes a consult with a medical provider as well as data gathering. We capture your medical history; any symptoms you are experiencing; and a quantification of how you are feeling, which will result in your LTC Vitality Score.
