Same comments re thyroid as per your thread. Iodine deficiency affects whole families.

He needs labs for LH/FSH and E2

Read the advice for new guys sticky for other causes of low T.

Thanks KSman, Read the advice. Definitely not thyroid in his case. We keep him around to attract thwe mosquitoes in summer..

I will look into the additional lab items. He is in the US and does not yet have insurance.
