Testing and Treatment for Hormone Imbalance in MenUndiagnosed hormone imbalances are often linked to increased risks for prostate disease, low sex drive, rapid aging and poor quality of life in general. You can have your hormone levels tested by a simple blood test, or by saliva testing. Talk to your prescriber about which test is best for you.Once it is determined that you have a hormone imbalance and testosterone replacement is needed, a prescription is required from your prescriber. The Custom Compounding Center can specifically make your medication to the exact dosage needed. With a compounded prescription, the dosage can be individually adjusted as needed or as determined with follow-up testing.
