You’re mentioning about having normal levels, we don’t know what normal levels are for you, we only know based on their reference ranges what’s normal for the entire population.
You’ll get no argument from me that levels aren’t low, in fact they are at disease state levels, men with lower than normal testosterone have a higher mortality rate than those in the middle ranges, men with high normal testosterone have the least chance of cardiovascular issues and live the longest.
You say you had normal testosterone levels at 18-19, note having normal levels doesn’t guarantee no symptoms if you’re not normal for your specific biology, if you have been suboptimal your entire adult life, you have never seen normal levels for YOU.
The ranges are everyone within the population, the top 2% and bottom 2% are removed from the reference ranges, so they are some men above the reference ranges naturally. If you’re one of those men who was mention to run above the reference ranges naturally.
Testosterone levels are at the highest in our 20’s, high normal ranges, yet you’re scoring in the ranges most 90 year old men see. This is why you have an extremely low libido, tiredness, fatigue, laziness just as a 90 year old men would.
Now for the hardest part of this journey you will face, finding a doctor under insurance that isn’t a complete quack doctor, most doctors are clueless when it comes to reading blood biomarkers a getting you on a modern TRT protocol.
Just about everyone who has had low testosterone diagnosed has never found a cause for low testosterone, only thing that’s found is testosterone is low.
You’re missing a lot of important testing and I’ll assume you haven’t been seen sent to a doctor that deals with endocrine disorders just yet which may explain the lack of testing. The more tests you doctor misses below, the better clue as to your doctor’s cluelessness.
