Greetings. I am 20 year old male (6 foot tall, 155 lbs) who has been experiencing wide variety of symptoms during the past few years. I have here some lab results that I’d like to hear some thoughts on.
I had low testosterone (300 ng/dl) on my lab test when I was around 18 y/o, I was offered TRT trial but only took 3 shots and quit due to side effects. That was dumb thing to do at all with one reading but didn’t know any better back then, just wanted my issues solved as fast as possible. I also tried some small dose arimidex for couple of months some months after my initial TRT trial but after coming off of it, my symptoms worsened.
Right now my symptoms are occasional night sweats, cold hands and feet, lack of libido, nipple itching w/ what I assume is mild gyno, fatigue, severe brainfog, scalp itching with some hairloss (this started after I ceased the arimidex), intolerance to any kind of stress, any small stressful things cause bad adrenaline type of rush in my body. My skin, especially on upper body feels hot/warm almost all the time.
I’ve been to doctor, right now I have prescription for Tamoxifen for the nipple itching/mild gyno, haven’t taken it yet. During my recent lab results my E2 was actually on the low side(4 months ago it was on the higher end??), also my DHT levels seem low, can low DHT cause gyno?
Here are my latest lab results, taken 8AM.
Fasting glucose 6.0 mmol/l (4-6) [?]
C-Reactive protein, sensitive: <0.12 mg/l (<5.00)
Potassium: 4.0 mmol/l (3.6-5.0)
Calcium: 2.40 mmol/l (2.15-2.51)
Magnesium: 0.97 mmol/l (0.71-0.94) HIGH
Total testosterone: 19.7 nmol/l (10-38)
SHBG: 31 nmol/l (14-69)
Calc. free. testosterone: 315 pmol/l (155-800)
Estradiol, E2: 0.04 nmol/l (<0.15) [this was 0.14 4 months ago. In other units my E2 right now is ~11 pg/ml when it was 38 pg/ml 4 months ago, wtf?]
DHT: 1.00 nmol/l (1.03-2.92) [Is my DHT low?]
Cortisol: 546 nmol/l (138-690)
ACTH: 56 ng/l (<45) HIGH
Any thoughts on these results? Seems really weird.
