In brief: Midlife hormone test
Gonadotropin [lh, fsh] tests help identify hypogonadism which increases with age.
Tsh screening for thyroid status is always useful but it often done too often or frequently. See my book 'endocrine and metabolic disorders clinical lab testing manual 2009 for more details. Buy it on line at crcpress.Com [cheap].
