Hey, here is my story.

Low libido, weak erections, no nocturnal erections.
No rx drugs. Supplements Fish oil 3 caps a day, Alpha Male x4, Gnc zma x2, and 10,000 iu of vit d a day.
First lab results
Primary care doc tested Basic metabolic Panel, Lipid Panel , and Testosterone.
Testosterone, Serum 265 ng/dl 348-1197 Low T. Blood Drawn at 9 am.
Referred to a Endo and he ran some more test.
Testosterone Total 327.9 Low 348-1197.0 ng/dl
LH 5.8 1.7-8.6 mIU/mL
FSH 1.8 1.5-12.4 mIU/mL

I took a dexamethasone suppresion test.

He basically told me my T levels are “normal” and told me he wasn’t going to treat me. Going back to GP tomorrow to get a second opinion.
