Testosterone testing is becoming more common, but the rate is still quite low, according to researchers from University of Chicago Medical Center and NorthShore University Health Systems.
They looked at the data from over 300,000 men and found that overall, about 3.2% had had their levels checked between 2009 and 2012. The rate increased from 2.5% to 3.6% during that period, they said.
The researchers were also concerned about the timing of testosterone tests. Because the hormone peaks in the morning, many medical societies recommend testing at this time. However, only 9% of the men had morning tests.
