Hey guys, looking for some advice on how to proceed with my situation.
I’m 22 year old male, fairly healthy and lift 4-6 days a week.
I’ve been feeling like garbage for a while but I could never figure out what’s wrong, recently I got my total testosterone checked and it came back at
224ng/DL. Ref range 219 ng/dl- 904 ng/dl
After I got this result I went to my walk it clinic and got some more blood paneling done.
Free test- 311 pmol ref range 196 pmol/l- 636 pmol/l
TSH 1.88 Miu/l ref range 0.35-5 Miu/l
I called my GP and she said my fee testosterone was in the normal range. Then she told me testosterone isn’t and important hormone for men, doesn’t effect energy levels and is dangerous to heart health (wtf) then finished the conversation saying there is nothing she can do and to go to a men’s clinic.
My concern was that maybe another hormone was too high causing these symptoms , I don’t want to get sold trt for life if it’s not necessary but it would be great to be able to start feeling somewhat normal.
