q. can you test and explain my hormones if i am not interested in going on hormone therapy?
Absolutely! Explaining your hormones and blood test results – particularly in the context of dieting and training to improve body composition – is our primary role. Our roots are in sports nutrition and training which gives us a unique perspective on the role of hormones in the real world. And we are also among the only people telling the real-world truth that hormone therapy is not the ‘silver bullet’ solution most people have been mislead to believe.
q: how do i know if i have a hormone imbalance or am eligible for therapy?
With a blood test. The typical symptoms (including lethargy, low libido, depression, body-fat gain, muscle loss, difficulty sleeping, fatigue etc) typically have nothing to do with hormone insufficiencies. Alternative tests, such as saliva testing or skinfold measurements, are notoriously inaccurate. At Recomp Medical all treatments are based on proper measurement of hormone levels through comprehensive blood tests.
q: what are the costs associated with your service?
We charge $100 for the initial pathology referral and consultation to discuss your levels and treatment options. The initial full blood test is no longer covered by medicare and so costs approximately $200.
q: i cannot get to melbourne to see you. can you consult to patients interstate?
Yes! The process is exactly the same (see above) and we consult via Skype or phone. We have accounts with pathology labs in every State of Australia so you can get your blood tests done locally.
q: an anti-aging doctor said i needed hormone therapy. but it did nothing. how are you different?
Unfortunately, this is a very common issue. The reality is, for most patients, grey-market peptides, testosterone creams and patches, DHEA and other popular anti-aging medications deliver virtually no perceivable benefit whatsoever. Even HGH is extraordinarily underwhelming (especially for the price) in the majority of patients.
Unlike most anti-aging doctors, we do not sell drugs at inflated prices. We sell our service. If we prescribe medications, you purchase them from a pharmacy at normal prices. So we are not incentivised to push as many ineffective and/or irrelevant drugs as possible onto patients. We tell you the truth about what you could do, and what the likely benefit might be.
q: i’m 20 years old and i’d like to use steroids and peptides to get ‘jacked’. can you hook me up?
No. We are a legitimate medical practice. We do not prescribe hormones to healthy, young people.
q: can you help me use hormones to cheat in sports?
We are happy to consult to supplementing athletes competing in untested competitions, and drug-free athletes competing in tested events. However, as a competitive athlete it is your responsibility to abide by the rules in competitive sport. And we have learned (through experience) not to ever get involved in therapeutic use exemptions. We do not condone nor support the undisclosed use of drugs in violation of the rules of sport.
q: do you treat women?
We are more than happy to refer blood tests and then consult on the results. Please note that prescription treatment options for women are extremely limited. And any chronic hormone disease state is beyond our scope and better treated by the relevant specialist.
q: are you another clinic that charges exorbitant prices for drugs?
No. Unlike most anti-aging clinics, we do not sell medications at all. Instead of charging a hefty markup on pharmaceuticals, we simply charge for our service. If our doctors prescribe anything, you purchase the prescription from a Pharmacy at normal discount prices.
q. can you sell or prescribe peptides and sarms?
We do not, and would not, lie to our customers that grey-market peptides and SARMs are worthwhile or beneficial. These drugs are the latest in a long history of sham products promising all the benefits of ‘steroids’ and ‘growth hormone’, with none of the side-effects. They trade off people’s naive presumption that non-legal products must be effective. But there is good reason that no pharmaceutical company has bothered to commercialise these research chemicals: they are completely absent of useful therapeutic benefit.
