What are the important blood tests men need?

I am looking for my husband who will be needing blood work. He is 51 years old and will be going to the doctor soon. I've seen the article on blood tests every woman needs but what about men? Are they similar? Do you have a list of tests he may need?

Hi Anon!

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community. It's awesome that you are looking out for your hubby's best interests and taking an active role in his health. Even healthy men should have a physical by their doctor to make sure they are in tip top shape!

I found a list of common blood tests for men that I can share with you. Each person is different and his doctor may or may not order all of these tests for whatever reason. If you are concerned, make sure your voice is heard and tell the doctor that you want the most comprehensive testing done. 

How is your husband's health? Are there any concerns that you or he have about his health? Any unusual symptoms that he is experiencing or is this just a routine visit? Please let me know.

Here's the list: 

Complete Blood Count (CBC)

Chemistry Panel

Basic Check-Up Panel

Lipid Panel or Heart Health Panel

Lipoprotein Particle Profile (LPP)

C-Reactive Protein

Thyroid Panel

Testosterone Test

Pre-Testosterone Replacement Therapy Panel

Continued Testosterone Replacement Therapy Panel


Growth Hormone Panel

Telomere Test

Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin B-12 Test

Micronutrient Test

Food, Environmental or Chemical Intolerance or Sensitivity

Allergy Testing

Liver Function (Hepatic) Panel

Diabetes Screening, including Hemoglobin A1c
