Blood tests before Xiaflex treatment?
« on: January 02, 2018, 11:43:55 PM »

Will most urologist do a blood test to see if anything else shows up prior to doing any treatments for Peyronies Disease? Or before using Xiaflex?

I would think only if you have other symptoms that would require a blood test for diagnosis. Peyronies alone would not indicate a need for a blood test.

Yeah I agree. As part of the overall Peyronies diagnosis, a T level test may be done, even though there is no conclusive evidence that low T causes Peyronies or indeed that T level 'correction' treats Peyronies.

In terms of a blood test specifically done for and prior to Xiaflex treatment. I don't see why and have never heard of it and my Uro hasn't mentioned it. Xiaflex is not a systemic treatment, it's a small/micro local injection. Other than an allergic reaction, which a blood test wouldn't forecast that's about the sum of it

Sorry to hear that. How many cycles have you done? Did you have an ultrasound and what have you done post treatments?
