i’m going to make it short.
i was diagnosed with a pituitary gland tumor 3 years ago after feeling depressed for no reason and a disappeared sex drive. the tumor was creating too much prolactin and therefore my testosterone and dopamine were low.
so i was put on cabergoline which decreased my prolactin almost to zero and boosted my total testosterone from 250 ng/ml to 650 ng/ml at some point. at that point I started to feel better more energy and a better sexdrive.
after my last bloodcheck i found out my results were the following:
total testosterone: 3.66 ng/ml
shbg: 18 nmol/L
index free testosterone: 72.10
androstanediol gluc. : 13.2 ng/ml
FSH: 1.6 U/L
LH: 5.8 U/L
I still take cabergoline twice a week (no side effects) but I could feel much better ( mood, sex drive, erections, sperm volume, etc ). I told my endocrinologist my free test is way too low but she said I was in the average ( low end ) so it’s ok. I have to disagree with her.
what do you guys think about those numbers?
