Men’s Fitness Values
You can measure your fitness in various ways. The LOUNA Men’s Fitness Values package has been particularly designed for men. Choose a comprehensive package that tells you how your body is doing, including your testosterone and PSA levels.
The LOUNA Men’s Fitness Values package gives you a thorough understanding of your own health, using multiple different measurements. The results may indicate that your lifestyle is already in good shape, or that something requires improvement or even professional help. Testosterone and PSA measurements are included in the package to report values specific to men.
The cause of erection problems or mood swings can often be found specifically in low testosterone levels. Measurement of PSA, a protein produced by prostate cells, gives an idea of the state of the prostate. PSA is also an important test in suspected prostate diseases such as cancer.
Erection problems can also be caused, for example, by hardening of the arteries caused by elevated cholesterol. The measurement of lipids, or fat values, is part of the LOUNA Men’s Fitness Values package.
Other tests in the package measure the basics of health: complete blood count, liver, kidney and thyroid values as well as the inflammation values.
The LOUNA Men’s Fitness Values package is also well suited for regular monitoring of the status of health and for supporting lifestyle improvements. You can easily see on My LOUNA how your levels change at each examination.
